What Are You Made Of?

Sep 9th 2010 at 11:00 AM

When looking for employment, you are the product you are selling. Just like advertisers need to know how to package goods that consumers will be attracted to, you must package yourself in a way that will attract employers to you. Proper and effective packaging is key. How can you make your product (YOU) stand out?

The packaging on the candy bar is a good start. It's eye-catching colors and descriptive words draw attention. All the things candy lovers are looking for. But what are employers looking for? Choose your words carefully and accurately. Using words that will interest the companies you apply to will grab their attention. That's why you need an effective résumé.

What you have to offer---the ingredients
Just like a recipe to a candy bar your résumé contains unique ingredients. YOUR SKILLS. What makes you unique to the position?

Skills can be grouped into three categories:
Skills learned through past experience and education (knowledge-based skills): computer skills, marketing skills, communication skills, management skills, product development, etc.

Skills you bring with you to any job (transferable or portable skills): customer focus, organizational skills, writig skills, coordination, team leader, problem solving, budgets and numbers, time management, etc.

Personal traits, the things that make you who you are: quick learner, self motivated, friendly,organized, good attitude, good judgement, flexible, creative, independent, etc.

Divide a sheet of paper into three columns and lable them according to the three types of skills listed above. List your skills in the appropriate column. Now you have something to work with when putting together an effective résumé. You still have some work to do before you can take your product to market, but at least you are off to a great start!

To your success,
Dona M. Davis, M.Ed.
