Jared has also wrote a few articles outlining why he thinks career accomplishments should be devoted to your resume. He feels that it could be the best decision that could be made to make your resume better. It’s a better way to outline the potential and value to future employers. By showing them what you’ve already accomplished on your resume, you’re one step closer than everyone else. He talks about how your resume should be 50% relevant work experience if you’re applying for high end jobs. He writes about how your resume should reflect your work experience and focus on your accomplishments outside of high school and college. He suggest to really focus on your major accomplishments after college. That is what the big corporate companies want to see.
In his argument for resume writing and what to focus on, he suggests to list the positions that you’ve held and the achievements you’ve had as an employee at your current position. Make sure to highlight the positive areas where you are exceeding expectations.
Jared wants you to be prepared for the hard questions as well and conversations you may have when applying for the job you want. The employer may ask you why you want to leave your current position or why you’ve left your previous job. Be as honest as possible and answer with integrity. They will see that you’re a good candidate for the position and that you left on good terms.
He points out that prospective employers will take the first impression of you and notice how you handle each relationship with each employer.
