Utilize Outside Resources to Write Your Resume

I often hear from my clients how helpful an outside perspective can be when developing a resume. It can be difficult to remember everything you accomplished because you lived those experiences each day and were simply too busy achieving great results to document all the details. A colleague can help you separate “business as usual” from the truly substantial impacts you made.

Here are a few ways to jog your memory with the help of others:

  • Interview past/present coworkers, friends, and family members.
  • Review official job descriptions for your positions.
  • Reference performance reviews and written accolades from colleagues, supervisors, and clients.
  • Ask for an objective review of your resume to be sure you aren’t selling yourself short.
