Make Your Resume About Value, Not Just Experience

When getting ready to submit your resume for your dream job it can be tempting to spend all your time archiving your experience in exacting detail. However, to get noticed, there are some important tweaks you can make. Experience is important, but equally important for your hiring manager is telling the story of the unique value you can bring to the company as an employee.

  • Customize your resume. Each position you apply for is likely different, even if the differences are fairly nuanced. Tailor your resume each time to showcase the strengths and talents you bring that are relevant to that position and company. You may focus more on the problem-solving skills in past jobs for one position while, for another, you may focus on team management.

  • Show value. Tailoring your resume for a specific position does more than tell a hiring manager you’ve got relevant experience; it demonstrates how you’ll benefit her department and company. Think of your resume as the first step in the interview process. For example, if you’re applying for a position building a mobile app, instead of just listing the generic duties you had as a programmer in a previous job, share examples of the work you’ve done, what you specialized in, and even a link to something you created. This helps the manager envision exactly how your skills will blend with her team.

These small changes can transform your run-of-the-mill resume into one that stands out from the crowd and is easily remembered. Ready to try out your new customized resume? Check out our current postings and let us know how you can bring value to Accenture.
