A Personal Marketing Package

Mar 1, 2012

A personal marketing package is an individual’s first introduction to a prospective employer.

That is why it is very important for you to make the appropriate selection when you are getting ready to do your resume. There are many selections to make, such as style, format, font type and size, content as well as the color and type of paper where you will print it. Your resume should be accurate, neat, attractive, error-free and as professional as one wants to be perceived. The following instructions will assist you in putting into words what you have done in your career and how to make an excellent presentation of yourself to appeal to a potential employer

Sections of a Resume
There are eight sections to your resume. They are:

  • Personal Information
  • Summarized Highlights
  • Work Experience
  • Education
  • Skills
  • Training
  • Awards and Certificates and
  • References

Detailed instruction is provided on items or information that should go in each section.

Preparation of Your Resume
In order to be able to create a great resume, a little preparation is involved. Create a data sheet that encompasses all of the information above and fill it out as you would an application. Use this document to type out your resume. With everything in order, it’s as simple as 1-2-3 to prepare your resume.

Also, remember to take this document with you once you have earned an interview because many times, companies will ask you to complete an application regardless of you having a resume. This data sheet will have all your information spelled out with accurate dates, company names and telephone numbers so that you don’t have to scramble for information or take precious interview time to call your references or friends.

Typing Your Resume
When you are ready to type your resume, take the time to think through the job duties and responsibilities that you had on your jobs and positions. You want to make your entries informative and understandable but you also need to think about being concise. Interviewers do not take a lot of time when they are reviewing resumes, even when they are sitting in front of you. That is why you will need to bullet your job duties so that it can be scanned and viewed easily and quickly. Make sure that your verbs and your adjectives are accurately used to best describe what it is you can do and what you are all about.
