If you’ve gotten only one response for every twenty resumes you’ve sent out, you may be wondering: Who’s sending these marvelous resumes that are getting the edge over yours? What do these jaw-dropping resumes look like, and why are they casting such a shadow over the others in the pile?
Let’s take a look at some of the resumes that seem to be leaping ahead of all the others, including yours. Here are four of them. How does your resume compare?
Four Attention-Getting Resumes
The Friendly One
This resume and cover letter radiate warmth and personal connection. The letter is addressed directly to the reader, spells her name correctly, and mentions a situation, pleasant memory, or person who the reader and writer have in common. How can anyone say no to this candidate? She’s practically already family.
The Calm, Competent, Professional One
This letter and resume are smoothly written, show a strong command of the English language, and are elegant, diplomatic and precise. This applicant seems to know the industry backwards and forwards, and the resume verifies what the cover letter suggests. She’s a pro, and any company will be lucky to bring her aboard.
There’s no end to the awards, competitive fellowships and astonishing accomplishments on this resume. And yet it doesn’t read like a laundry list. The applicant is highly decorated with medals and ribbons, but she still seems open to growth, flexible, personable, and willing to learn.
The One Who Fits In Perfectly Here
There’s just something about this resumethat seems to match the feel, tone, and style of the company’s culture. It’s almost as if the applicant has been spending time in the office and getting to know the staff… Though she may have just visited the website, and thought carefully about the company’s target market and workplace brand.
