Resume


We All Need a Resume!

How important is a resume? Very important! It is usually your potential employer’s first look or first impression of you. Some of us may not remember when we put that first resume together. For many of us in a previous generation, writing a resume usually didn’t take place until after graduating from college and rarely was this process the obligation of the school. We were on our own to provide enough information to catch the eye of a possible employer. Today, we want our students at BHP to have that skill in place before leaving high school. Recently, I watched several students deliberating on what they needed to add to their resumes. This piece of paper could be what gets their feet in the door for possible employment immediately after graduation. They need to get this right!!

So, what makes a quality resume? Simply put, our resume needs to set us apart from all the other applicants who have applied. It should also guarantee us more than a seven second glance from a potential employer. Most importantly, it should be sufficient to potentially land a job.

Recently, I ran across an article entitled, “How to Write a Resume in 7 Easy Steps” by Robert Hall. He listed grabbing attention quickly as the number one objective. After that, we must show outcomes from our work experience, not just that we worked but what we accomplished. Also, we must demonstrate our soft skills, such as ability to be punctual and have excellent attendance. Employers are begging for candidates with sufficient soft skills. We must separate ourselves from the pack in this area. Highlighting our technical skills is always a plus as well as adding any special skills unique to the job. Keywords are also very important to distinguish ourselves. Finally, the best resumes are proofread by ourselves and by others!  I remember reading a resume of a prospective teacher that read, “I have great patients with students.” Sadly, he was applying for an English teaching position.

A resume is often just a piece of paper to an employer. Going the extra step to set us apart from other candidates is a must. Having our students learn to write resumes while in high school is an advantage. The workforce is looking forward to qualified employees. Often, this one sheet of paper can make all the difference!
