    How to Write Your Resume Like a Salesperson, with Claire Davis

    How to Write Your Resume Like a Salesperson, with Claire Davis

    What does your resume look like? Is it a list of your experience by year, followed by a summary of your past responsibilities? If that sounds familiar, it’s time to adopt a new strategy. Find Your Dream Job guest Claire Davis is here to share why your resume needs to sell you to the hiring manager. Claire explains that selling yourself is simply showing how your skills and experience are the answer to the company’s problems. Instead of focusing on your accomplishments, focus on how you were able to get results for your past employers based on the skills you possess.

I accepted my dream job!

A great podcast! I listened to it to prep for an intensive week of interview rounds and a presentation. It helped me feel more confident and prepared. Now I need Mac to create a podcast on career development- what about the first 30 days and the years of growth after you’ve accepted that dream job?
