It is a privilege to be featured on The National Resume Writer’s Association’s Ask the Experts blog with other certified resume writers this week answering the question: I realize resumes have changed over time; is there a new way of writing resumes in 2019 and beyond?
You can check out the round-up of answers here. Most focus on the importance of:
▶︎ Concise Writing. Attention-spans are short and recruiters/hiring managers first scan a resume, so include only relevant career history focusing on achievements and results instead of job functions
▶︎ Your personal brand. Showcase what you can do for a company instead of describing what you want in a job in an old-school objective statement. Articulate your value clearly in your resume and LinkedIn profile.
▶︎ Modern format and design elements. Consider color and modern design elements to drive how you will deliver results for a company.
