Resume-writing rules to break — and ones you should not BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ crodriguez@soundpublishing.com

Your objective: to write a banging resume. Through a quick Google search, you will discover that there are many new — and tried and true — ways to produce a killer resume. Here are some contemporary and good old-fashioned resume-writing tips to solidify your status as a superb candidate:

Delete your objective White out that outdated “objective statement” you’ve kept at the top of your resume for years. Instead, add a “performance summary” to put a modern spin on an outdated resume feature, according to Fast Company. An “objective” signifies what a job candidate wants out of their career, which won’t do much help the job

seeker. By replacing your objective statement with a “performance summary,” you are instead letting the hiring personnel know what you can do or what you’ve already done, according to Fast Company. Under this heading you can highlight your abilities in relation to the job you are applying for, using words and phrases listed in the job posting.

Tell a story Are you a resultsoriented professional or a motivated self-starter? If you are, don’t include descriptions like that on your resume, unless you want to sound like every other job seeker, according to Forbes’ “Ten Resume-Writing Rules You’re Allowed To Break Now.” This type of “robot language” diminishes candidates, the article continues.

Ditch the lackluster jargon and humanize your resume by telling a story in your resume. Tell the story of how you met or exceeded your goals, or what makes you a team player.

5 commandments of resume-writing While resume-writing is a multi-million-dollar

AAA Washington invites the best. That could mean you! AAA Washington provides roadside assistance, insurance, and travel services to over 1.1 million members in Washington State and Northern Idaho. Headquartered in Bellevue, WA, the organization is comprised of approximately 650 dedicated staff located at the corporate offices, and over 17 retail locations.

industry and many companies may try to lure job seekers with some sort of a secret formula, writing an effective resume is not a complicated process, according to Matt Youngquist, founder of Career Horizons in Bellevue, in his blog post, “5 Steps to a ‘Very Good’ Resume.” He noted there are definitely times when hiring somebody to write your resume is a smart idea, just

like you might hire somebody to fix your plumbing or do your taxes. “But be wary of firms that make the process sound more mystical or complicated than it really is,” said Youngquist, a recognized expert in the field of career coaching, job hunting and professional employment counseling. “Ultimately, I maintain that there are only five key guidelines that a resume needs to pass in order to be highly effective.” Those tips are: 1. Your resume needs to look good. 2. Your resume needs to be error-free. 3. Your resume needs to have a clear focus. 4. Your resume needs to include the right buzzwords. 5. Your resume needs to showcase your top accomplishments. Ultimately, Youngquist

said that most resume decisions come down to your own preference in terms of what you choose to share about yourself. But if you make sure you don’t violate the aforesaid “five commandments,” your resume will be in decent shape. “Personally, I’d say that I come across a truly showstopping ‘great’ resume about as often as I come across a ‘great’ website that stands out from the crowd and takes my breath away. Not very often,” Youngquist said. “So if I were you, I’d settle for putting together a ‘very good’ piece, with or without outside help, then concentrate your efforts on running a ‘great’ marketing and networking campaign for yourself — something that IS possible and that will tend to have a much better impact on your overall success rate, in the long run!”

Tips for acing a job interview BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ crodriguez@soundpublishing.com

Your resume made the cut — now it’s time for you to stand out during the interview. From deciding how to dress, to anticipating what questions the interviewer will ask, there are several stressful aspects that applicants may dwell on. But the key to gaining confidence and acing a job interview is preparation. Indeed’s Career Guide offers the following tips for job applicants to prepare for an interview: • Practice strong answers. Research the company so you have a solid understanding of the job requirements and how your background makes you a

great fit. • Prepare your answer to the common question: “Tell me about yourself, and why are you interested in this role with our company?” Quickly communicate who you are and what value you will bring to the company. • Re-read the job description. Think about examples from your work history that align with these requirements. In addition, Indeed encourages applicants to prepare to be asked about times in the past when you used a specific skill. Tell anecdotes using the STAR method with a clear Situation, Task, Action and Result. • Practice your answers out loud, either to yourself or with a friend. • Prepare smart questions

to show them that you are thinking seriously about what it would be like to work there. For example: “Can you explain some of the day-to-day responsibilities this job entails?” or “How would you describe the characteristics of someone who would succeed in this role?” • Think about first impressions and dress appropriately. Ask the job recruiter beforehand what the dress code in the workplace is and dress accordingly, or research the company to learn what’s appropriate. Check for little things: shine your shoes, make sure your nails are tidy and check your clothes for holes and loose threads. • Arrive 10–15 minutes early. Map out your route to the interview location so you will be sure to arrive on time. • Practice confident, accessible body language. Sit or stand tall with your shoulders back. Before the interview, take a deep

breath and exhale slowly to help you manage anxiety and boost self-confidence. Jennifer Blanck, a longtime Toastmasters member and career coach, offers the following tips to prepare for and ace a job interview: • Know yourself. Understand your values, priorities and how to present your strengths and weaknesses.

Also take the time to prepare concrete examples that demonstrate your relevant skills and experience. • Research the position, organization, its competitors and the interviewer. This will help you answer questions and shows you’re interested in getting the job. • Make the right impres-

sion. Arrive at the location of the interview early, turn off your cell phone, stay focused on the interview and actively listen to the interviewer. Greet everyone you encounter with a smile and a firm handshake. For more information, visit www.indeed.com, and www.toastmasters.org/ findaclub.
