Chapter 10. The Résumé > Actions & Ideas

Actions & Ideas

  1. Review your current résumé: How long is it? Do you have paragraphs, or is it difficult to find your skills buried in job descriptions and experience?

  2. Create a sparse 1-page résumé. Include only contact information, skills list, professional experience, and education. Let a mentor—preferably someone who is in an influential position—review it.

  3. Make sure your résumé shows what you know (your skills list) and why it is relevant (your professional experience).

  4. Create two skills lists: a list of hard-technical skills and a list of soft skills. Use your résumé as a tool to assist you in assessing which areas you need to develop.
