While LinkedIn offers a great opportunity to showcase your professional capabilities online, resumes still hold a solid place in communicating your expertise to hiring managers and clients in snapshot form.
Constructing an effective professional resume takes practicality and a bit of finesse because even if you’re the best in the business, it won’t matter unless your resume conveys that fact clearly. And with limited space and time, you have to ensure you sell yourself with concision and professional appeal, which is why both the words and format you use are essential.
Using the wrong words can get your resume tossed in the trash. But using the right words in the wrong way or in the wrong order can cause confusion. Either way, precision is important when crafting your resume.
