To construct a WoW resume (leading to the secret described below), you should go through a period of introspection to understand your past experiences and skills and how they match up with the jobs you are looking for.

A resume is not a boring record of past accomplishments; it is a well-crafted, three- dimensional document designed to show an employer you have the skills for the job you are seeking.

  • You begin to realize how much you have really done over the years
  • You see your tremendous past and current success
  • You see patterns emerging and the “big picture”.

You need the big picture for the rest of your job search, especially interviews-is that the secret?  Keep reading!

So, you begin to really understand “you”. Be your own therapist! Boy, if someone gave me that advice 20 years ago, I could have saved a Ferrari in therapy costs!

So, the #1 resume secret is that resume preparation really serves as a proxy for interview preparation. Who doesn’t love a 2 for 1 special?

Don’t think of interviews as anything other than an extension of your resume, told in an interactive format.

Interviewers demand you tell your story, why you have the skills for the job, and why you are a cultural fit.  You will know most if not all these details after you finish your resume.

So, if you want to ace the interview, ace the resume!
