100 Components of an Exemplary Resume:
HOW DOES YOUR RESUME FARE?

By Evelyn Salvador, NCRW, JCTC

Did you know that a full 98 percent of the general public prepares their resume incorrectly? That's because resume writing is an art and a science that takes even professional resume writers years to perfect.

Job seekers generally do not target their resumes precisely to the positions they seek, match their qualifications with the position requirements, incorporate all of the relative resume keywords, showcase their benefits and achievements to prospective employers, and a host of other things. And—most importantly—they do not know how to brand themselves. Personal Branding is by far the most critical and successful way to get hired. These and other areas are critical to demonstrate to prospective employers how suitable of a candidate you are for them.

If your resume and cover letter are well crafted, it will help you increase your interview odds manyfold, heighten your confidence level, gain renewed enthusiasm for the job search, feel empowered in the interview stage, land the position you seek sooner, and obtain your highest salary potential possible. Including your personal brand message will help put you in the top 2 percent of candidates considered for positions.

The following list of resume requirements for successful resumes focuses on all of the critical resume and cover letter areas to help you make your presentation the best it can be in order to maximize your interview odds and salary potential. As a professional resume writer, these are the areas I personally include in all of my clients’ resumes.

If you’d like to go about crafting your resume and cover letter on your own, I’ve also included the chapters in my Step-by-Step Resumes and Step-by-Step Cover Letters books as to where to find the help you need in each area. If not, seek a Professional Resume Writer who is also a Personal Branding Strategist to help you.
