Rewriting a resume is like cleaning out a closet.
It’s hard to clean out our closet because we can become emotionally attached to some of the items in it. Perhaps it’s a jacket that was a gift, or a pair of pants that fit a decade ago. Or maybe it’s that expensive impulse buy that seemed so right at the time but turned out to be so wrong and has been sitting in your closet for years.
We struggle with the same issues when rewriting resumes. It may be hard to let go of the half page dedicated to that Y2K conversion you worked so diligently on in 1999 or the paragraph about the direct mail campaign that was novel in 2001 but old hat in 2011. Sometimes we need someone with a more objective perspective to step in and clean out our resume.
People need help in the interview process to focus on the appearance that will be most valuable to employers.
Recently I started thinking about my wardrobe/resume analogy and how integral what’s in your closet is to your overall presentation and value proposition to employers.
A great resume and a great interview strategy should be complemented by a great outfit for the interview. The clothes need to be just as relevant as the message on the resume or elevator pitch.
