Know Yourself
We could skip this whole section if you simply want to know how to write a great resume – one that will succeed in securing interviews. But the ultimate purpose of an interview is to secure a job offer that will present you with the greatest opportunity for success.
 
if your resume isn’t written as a true reflection of what YOU have to offer, then securing interviews is an empty pursuit, particularly as your interviewer discovers that you lack the qualifications necessary for the position. Ultimately, the goal of going on interviews is to secure employment.
So when you’re writing your resume, you need to make it a true reflection of what you have to offer. It can’t be a work of fiction. It needs to be an accurate portrayal of your skills, abilities, experiences, and achievements – as these relate to (or are relevant to) the positions and companies being targeted.
 
It’s not enough to simply answer the needs of your reader, particularly if doing so requires you be less than truthful. If I use the previous ad as an example, I may be tempted to tell the reader that I have experience in customer service, because I recognize that customer service experience is a key criterion of the position. But if I don’t have this experience, and I lie in my resume by stating that I do, even if I’m eventually hired for the position, my employment can be terminated at any time. I can be terminated regardless of whether or not I do a great job. I can be terminated even if I end up being the best customer service representative in the company. If I lie on my resume, and that lie is discovered, everything I’ve done and said up to that point becomes suspect, and my employer will have legitimate cause to terminate my employment.
And if I’m fired for lying on my resume, how am I going to use this experience to secure my next position? How am I going to convince anyone that my achievements here were legitimate?
 
Therefore, it’s important to target positions that are a good match for your particular skills, abilities, interests, aspirations, previous achievements and past contributions. This doesn’t mean that you can only target positions for which you have previous experience, or that you must meet every criteria in a job ad in order to apply, but that you should target positions that will be a good match for both you and the potential employer.
As you look through the list of criteria within each job ad you plan to target, determine how your skills and achievements align with the needs and requirements of your reader, and identify ways the in which you can show these skills in action.
Rules of A Great Resume:
Rule #1: Don’t lie.
Rule #2: Know your reader.
Rule #3: Know yourself.
Rule #4: Include everything relevant to the position that's important to your reader and to you.
Rule #5: Leave everything else off.
