If you have a fair amount of business or career experience then you need to detail them on your resume.

If you are at management level then you need to include team sizes, budgetary levels and type of responsibility.Avoid putting down your job description just stick to what you have done. SkillsYour skills are very important, many job agencies and HR people are searching your resume for certain skills make it easy for them! If you are in a highly technical career such as engineering or IT then group your skills together at the top of your resume. PotentialNow here is a fact that few people remember. When a potential employer is looking at your resume they are asking themselves a number of questions:* Does this person have the skills and experience that I am seeking? Hopefully you have answered these questions already.* What will this person bring to my company? Well you have told them about your responsibilities in your experience and your abilities under your skills. Now tell them about your potential. Tell them of one or two professional successes you have had. Have you made your last company more profitable, successful, marketable, efficient etc.? Did you complete a project quickly, identify some improvements etc? Well you get the idea. Answer the question: Whats in it for me if I employ this person? and you will be well on the way to your job interview.* How will this person develop in the future? Put on your resume any professional training that you have undertaken, any out of work responsibilities that you have. Travel, charity and sport are always popular. Make them achievements not hobbies and be careful not to give the impression that you hardly have time for work!Good luck in finding the job that you deserve!————————————————- Copyright 2006 Biz Guru Services LtdLee Lister has written a book for job seekers called FastTrack to Job Success that can be found on She also provides CV and Resume writing services and specialises in senior managers and those changing career paths.This article may be freely distributed if this resource box stays attached. ———————————————–
