Accomplishments - Connecting Resumes and Interviews

Questions This Guidance Answers: 
  • How do I translate my resume into an interview?
  • How can my resume help me in an interview?
  • What's useful in your resume when you get to an interview?

Most folks just don't realize HOW important resumes are, and not just as pieces of paper.

In our Resume Cast, we talked about the PURPOSE of resumes: to create an interview. Now just imagine...wouldn't it be great if its value didn't end there? It doesn't! Yes, the resume itself gets you the chance to sell yourself, but buried in the resume are the PERFECT seeds of success, if you've followed our guidance.

I never actually thought that resumes can really have such a big impact, so I'm quite surprised from the quality information here. It could be even better to find additional tips and good advice on this website.
