Save Some For The Interview

Kent Nolen

Your resume needs to be accomplishment focused, but it should not be a comprehensive listing of everything you have achieved.  Instead, your resume should more of a “highlights reel.” Think of it this way... If movie previews showed every key moment – if every plot turn were clearly laid out – you would have no reason to go see that movie.  And most of us have experienced the disappointment that comes when you see a movie and leave thinking, “bummer, everything worth seeing was in the preview.”

Your resume is no different.  If you dump everything into the resume, you loose the ability to surprise your interviewer.  Worse, you may not even get the interview because you have not created any curiosity gaps – those strategic questions that make readers want to learn more.

Is your resume not only highlighting the best of your accomplishments but also compelling the interviewer to learn more?
