A well organized, easy to read, and error free resume is your gateway into getting the interview. [TWEET]
Have you ever considered how much your resume is worth? Put an actual dollar value on it? I sometimes ask people seeking resume help how much they think their two-page resume is worth (hopefully their resume is only two pages and not the 10+ I’ve seen). I get answers from five cents to “a lot,” but the right answer is: it depends on how much I make. If I earn $100,000 every year for the next ten years, these two pages are worth $1,000,000 dollars to me. Think about that for a second. The resume I thought of as a burden to create and update, which I worked on while watching The Big Bang Theory or Game of Thrones, is possibly worth $1mm or more to me. What other documents have you recently created worth $1mm+ to you?
