As a job seeker, rejection is part of the process. Fortunately, there are specific ways to improve your chances of landing an interview, and the resume is one of the most difficult things for job seekers to get right.

What is left out of your resume is equally as important as what is on it. Also, how you describe your skills and experience on the resume can be another key to attracting a higher manager, and ultimately landing that job.

"If you don't know what you want, you end up creating a resume for all things, for all people. If you don't, you're creating something that is confusing or mediocre. That's step one - know what role you are aiming for! Your resume is a message that is letting the recruiter know what they have to know about you so they can visualize you in the role." Elissa Shuck, LYWL EP.29

In this episode, I give you the exact steps to create a resume specifically for a career change. You'll learn the most common mistake job seekers make when it comes to their resume, what to leave out on purpose, and how to use the proper language to land that next job.
