Too Scared To Tweak Your Formula?
Your resume is a living document
“Art is the elimination of the unnecessary.” - Pablo Picasso
Some months ago, I helped a job seeker review his resume and cover letter for a data analytics role.
He landed the job he desired and was pleased with the results.
Recently, he started considering applying for roles with new challenges and consulted with me again to review his application.
He wanted to ensure his application was spot on and would help him advance into the interview stages.
The job of a resume is to send you to the interview room—nothing else.
During the review process, I did something unusual. I changed a few texts here and there and re-ordered some paragraphs.
He looked at me like I had pulled down the heavens.
He was surprised by the changes and wondered why we had to change the old resume.
I gave him this piece of advice.
