By Gerda MenzelOn Dec 12, 2017 Resume
Misrepresenting yourself on your resume can result in a job offer being revoked. Or, if discovered later, it can lead to you getting fired. While you should try to present yourself as the best candidate for the job, you should do it accurately and honestly. Resist the temptation to pad your resume.
Your resume is much more than a compilation of your work history; it is a tool that lets hiring managers know that you are the candidate they have been hoping for. Recruiters and hiring managers have seen every type of resume format imaginable. For maximum wow-factor, you must build a resume that highlights your industry-specific experience, accomplishments, and credentials, as well as important skills.
A prospective employer does not need an exhaustive list of everything you have done in a previous job. When describing your duties at a previous job, highlight your accomplishments and, whenever you are able to, quantify them with hard numbers on your job resume. It is all good and well that you led a team of six salespeople, but it is a lot more powerful to say that sales for your team increased 50 percent under your leadership.
