How to Create a Resume Branding Strategy
Let’s get started by creating your resume branding strategy. What you might find a little funny though is that we are not even going to look at your resume today! This is the step that is often missed by job searchers. One of the biggest mistakes is not doing this pre-work and really thinking about your resume branding strategy before you start updating your resume.
Start asking yourself some questions like what is the first thing that you want the interviewer to know about you? Remember, often a recruiter only spends 5-7 seconds on your resume so you must be ready to convey the most important part first! Also, what makes you unique and what makes you awesome? (remember it’s ok to brag now! Don’t be humble ladies!!) Once you have the answers to these questions, it will be time to create your resume branding strategy and we will break your brand into five different categories:
