Writing Your Resume

There’s a  lot of info out there about putting together a resume, and I probably can’t add a lot, but I reviewed a resume for a friend recently and of the notes I sent back, I wanted to share a couple here:

  • Tell them what you want to do. Are you a DBA. An ETL developer? What job do you want? Most people try to make their target very general and I think it’s a mistake.
  • Tell them what you know how to do. Don’t assume they know what you’re good at. Don’t worry about what you don’t know, tell them what you’ve been doing, what you can do for them.

Formatting, spell check, all of that matters, but try these two tests at the end.
