Sample Resume Critique

Dear John,

The raw data resume you submitted had a lot of good information. You've had a lot of experience and you do a very nice job of explaining your experiences and your accomplishments.

When creating the bullet points for the various sections, which will be explained below, I've worded the actual projects and accomplishments in such a way as to emphasize your leadership, initiative, capability, and communication skills.

I created a variant of an IT template for your resume. While your experience is mostly in IT fields, you stated quite specifically that you wanted to move into a sales or project management position. Since one of the most important pieces of information for you to get across is your desire to move into this new field, I chose a resume that had an “Objectives” section.

I combined the template with an IT-specific format by including a section for your “Computer Skills” after the “Objectives” section and before the “Employment” section.

For the “Computers Skills” section I've divided your skills into Software, Operating Systems, and Programming Languages. In addition, I placed your email address before your phone number, since for an IT position it's likely that the hiring manager would email you.

Your new resume is one page, the industry standard (except for senior executives with decades of experience). Therefore, I excluded your college activities and summer school classes because they aren't relevant to the job search.

As you can see, I've summarized your comments about your goals and overall skills into the paragraph about objectives. The idea here is to communicate what you can do and what you want to do as briefly as possible.

For the Employment section, I've listed your two major jobs and your one important internship, giving one or two bullet points about your general responsibilities and, for the two jobs, giving a “primary project” heading which includes your most striking, interesting, or important project. For the job at TJM, I included the “TJM Technical Note Central,” and for the job at TechSoft I included the reporting utility you worked on creating.

All decisions to modify or exclude data in your new resume were in keeping with the guidelines and standards set forth by the Professional Association of Resume Writers (PARW). You now have a powerful tool that's well-organized, concise, and aesthetically pleasing.

Good luck in all your future endeavors!
