The résumé, much like the online profile, attempts to reveal a lot with very little. Each piece matters, every word counts. While endless hours are spent cultivating, tending to our Facebook profiles, ask yourself this: Have I put the same level of effort and vanity into my résumé? Chances are, you haven't, and that's why your résumé probably isn't what it should be: the ultimate one-page representation of your professional self, or something near that. Now, you might be thinking, well, I never learned how to write a résumé, or, this résuméspeak, it's a different language and I don't know it. Precisely! That's why we're here to help you fix that thing you call a résumé.
Every now and then I'll be posting résumés from real people, names and other identifying details changed, of course. They will be critiqued, commented on and revised. Today, Igor Khayet of My Resume Shop, gives a young integrated marketing communications major a leg up on his hunt for a full-time marketing position.
Igor Khayet is the President and Founder of My Resume Shop, a career services company offering assistance with résumés, cover letters, and interview preparation. He is a former Admissions Interviewer for the Yale School of Management and a member of the Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches. Connect with him on Facebook and Twitter.
