Think Your Resume Works?

Img_0211_1 In the presentations that I deliver on personal branding I always like to cover some background as to why personal branding is now becoming a key part of career management.

One such area of discussion is the increasing rise of exaggeration or out right lies on resumes, latest surveys place this at over 50% of all resumes!

That's why in the work I do with clients I advocate the need to produce other more unique and quantifiable career marketing documents to use in their job searches.

Last night I was presenting to a group of Human Resource professionals for a local chapter of the HRPAO and asked for a show of hands as to how many of them viewed a resume with 100% belief - the answer - which was shocking to me - NONE!

Now how well do you think your resume is working?
