6. Focus your resume
Most resumes are very vanilla overview, titles, tasks, accomplishments and education. But companies want to see the sizzle AND the steak. They want to see progression in experience, skills and responsibility and how you have contributed directly to your employers, or former employers, success. Make sure your document includes enough substance to explain the strategies and tactics you were responsible for, but also the intangibles where you made a difference. It doesnt have to be overly long or detailed, but back up any success claims with real facts and examples.
