Movers & Shakers "Spring Clean" Your Resumé In lieu of cleaning out our garages, basements and desks, we often find ourselves forgetting about our slightly outdated resumés. Whether you are on the job hunt or simply keeping an updated resumé on file, the checklist below contains all essentials for catching the eye of a recruiter. Remove anything that is irrelevant: Anything that is older than 10 to 15 years might not be relevant to what you are currently doing. Be sure to list positions that depict you in the present, preferably not part-time or internship experience that does not apply. Experience in the beverage industry is always an eye catcher. New Skills: Be sure to add any new skills or certifications. These could be as simple as wine and cheese pairing skill to professional people skills. Understand your reader: Having extensive experience in both marketing and sales is great, but when applying for a marketing position, it is important to be specific with your resumé. Just as you would tailor a cover letter for a marketing position verses a sales position, a resumé should be tailored as well. Having multiple resumés for different jobs is a way to truly show how qualified you are for the posi- tion, letting your resumé stand apart from others. Don't forget the basics: Staples for resumé cleaning include grammar, spelling, formatting and updating contact information. Be sure that you are discussing what your accomplishments and successes actually did for the company, not just what you did. And lastly, get your information out there via other avenues other than a paper resumé. Good luck and get cleaning! CAREER CORNER
