Editor's Note

Believe it or not, there is one comforting aspect to the job search process: resume writing. Why? Because writing a resume entails no surprises, only hard work. It is not like the job interview or the networking function where you have to perform on the spot. You can take all the time you need when writing your resume. How much time you spend only depends on how committed you are. Why then do so many people fail at writing a proper or effective resume? Because many are engaged in wishful thinking, don't want to face their past, don't believe in themselves or simply don't recognize their own limitations (that they have poor writing skills!).

As you write your resume, don't lose sight of what a resume is about. A resume is a document intended to show to a potential employer, as "objectively" as possible, why your experience and qualifications make you the best candidate for the job. Objectively was put in quotes because, although the resume has to be written in an impersonal tone, the content of the resume can be very subjective: What do you believe your experience was? What do you believe your accomplishments were? What do you believe you contributed to your prior employers?
