What are HR Professionals Looking for in a Resume?

Presenter: Nathalie H. Thompson
Date: 28 June 2017


Your resume is an advertisement for you. In the marketing world it would be a piece of “collateral.” Your resume needs to clearly communicate to the reader your product, features, benefits and supporting evidence.

Preparing and writing your résumé is a key step in preparing to interview. The process of writing a targeted, market-ready résumé ensures that you have identified:

  • Your desired position, companies and industries
  • The key knowledge, skills, abilities and experience required for your desired position
  • Key accomplishments—results and impacts you have made, actions you have taken and knowledge and abilities you have demonstrated

Being able to articulate your key accomplishments during an interview is critical to demonstrating your qualifications for a position.

Résumés get interviews, interviews get job offers.
