So many people write a resume focused on their needs – not the needs of the employers. In other words, they focus on their previous work history and responsibilities and what they want to do next. A good resume, however, focuses on results and achievements, and matches the needs of the job description for each specific job, and how they can help the company succeed going forward.
It’s tricky, but it helps to follow specific resume writing trends, guidelines, and resume tips for each specific industry.
For example, a sales resume should have different results and achievements than an information technology resume. In sales, the focus should be on sales figures, number of accounts managed, proof of new business development, or exceeding sales quotas. In IT, achievements relate to project-based work, technologies used, and the end results of those projects, implementations, or developments.
