The Right Resume application collects details of a job seeker’s employment history into a database that prints out a comprehensive, targeted resume.
Page 1: Registration. Name, address, phone and e-mail are entered here to print out later on the top of the resume. Each job (or gap in employment) is entered on a time line, ready for details to be entered later.
Page 2. Work History Details. Job seekers load details of their work history, task by task, at each employer registered into the first page.
There is a space in a black box on this page to paste task descriptions copied directly from O*Net or other source, greatly improving on the vocabulary used to describe tasks done at each employer.
Later, only those tasks that are checked in the check box will print on the resume. Page 3. Education History. This is where the minutia of education, training, certificates or other accomplishment are recorded. Later, only those events that are checked in the check box will print on the resume.
Page 4. Skills are constructed, putting numbers and other qualifiers on the otherwise ordinary tasks listed for each job. Thoughtful care is exercised. Skills are built from the client’s memory as she quantifies and qualifies the things she was good at.
This is where information about what the person achieved or contributed throughout their career must be developed.
The printed resume shows these special skills at the top of the printed resume, just below the “objective”. This is the “sweet spot” of the resume, where the HR reviewer will put his 6 seconds of attention.
This working resume may be further edited, depending on the specific job opening. It is very easy to return to the resume builder and check different boxes for different résumé printout results.
The current trend in printed resumes is to have only one page.
If a preview shows more than one page, back up and eliminate a few line items by un-checking boxes until the one page resume looks right.
(For a resume that is supposed to be more than one page, don’t worry about it; it will still print out.)
