Job Aspirant Does Your Resume Gets You an Interview?

If Not - Get an interview getting resume.

Here Is What You Need to Do with your resume?

90% of resumes are a list of education and experience .

Your resume must TALK Not LIST. 

Ironic that job seekers complain about "not getting response" but they will CERTAINLY not get any response if they don't invest in a specific resume to the job.

 

I am Mukesh Shah review job seekers profiles for a LinkedIn pilot program, among the most viewed writers on quora.com for Resume/CV category, and new pro on LinkedIn. My goal is to create your resume that gets you an Interview.

Hi Mukesh,

Throughout the first 2 weeks of this pilot you have become a stand-out Career MVP Professional. Because of this we are offering the ability to review a bulk of profiles at one time (5-10 depending on your capacity). If you are interested and can still have them completed in a couple days let me know and we will assign you some. Thanks again!

I will do 'You are the best fit" resume.

Let us check where we stand.

You

You are seeking a job, and you have applied for many jobs and not happy with an outcome.

Tell me how many jobs you applied in last month, in three months?

It is many I know otherwise you are not here.

You are searching a solution, a way out, want to succeed and try for help with a resume. You are looking for a resume writer. It is a truly professional way to go. I congratulate you.

Me Mukesh Shah

A new pro in the town (LinkedIn)

Have few new ideas. Many pros like me. You also will like when you read. Ask $199 for service, has no recommendations.

You will act professionally. Professionals

  • Are flexible
  • Change ways when things are not working
  • Experiment
  • Try and take new initiatives

Your problem is an interview and solution is a convincing resume to hiring managers.

Never seek a resume to send to multiple jobs. It is the problem for not getting an interview.

I can not understand why people send 100+ applications. It is insane to do when you not get response after 5-6 applications.

Read and see how your resume will get you an interview. I tell you this initially because I want to save your 8-10 minutes you will spend with me. I tell

  1. First your challenges and how I overcome them.
  2. Explain how I differentiates you. And
  3. Make sure we are on the same page.

I create 'You are the best Fit' resume.

My resume has

  • Headline
  • Title
  • Branding
  • Experience Story

All above elements you don’t have on your resume.

Your resume must TALK not LIST.

I begin my page with these words. Understand, I am doing something important via these elements.

Position

I take a position.

HR Manager wants to know

Who are you and what is in it for me?

There may be hundreds of applicants, but you can shine out when you position yourself. You should not only position yourself but also define and tell how you are different.

Let us put your resume to work for you.

Think you are meeting HR manager of the company you are applying. Virtually resume is you in person.

What do you do when you meet someone? OR what you say when someone asks you what you do?

Most of us say something like, ‘I am a lawyer,’ ‘I am an engineer.’

Examples of Conversation with an HR Manager

Example One

Q: Hi Mukesh, what do you do?

Mukesh: I do exciting online advertising and bring $2 for every $1 spends.

Q: How do you do that?

Mukesh: I use effective headlines to help businesses get their message across. I am trained headline writer.

(This is you explain a process. Now he is interested. He is nodding and wants to know more. So, keep talking.

Headlines are 80% responsible for reading your message. It is your Positioning Statement. Because headlines are, a visual and people tend to relate to them. Finally, give them a result.)

At Ecomleads.com, an affiliate network how we solved high click costs by getting 10%+ CTR for Adwords campaigns. (A success from your experience)

Example Two

Now let us look at a normal conversation

Q: Hi Mukesh, what do you do?

Mukesh: I do advertising.

Q: That’s cool. Which newspapers and magazines do you do?

It’s now too late to steer the discussion because it’s already taken a different track.

In the first conversation, I could control the line of questioning. It ensured that my message got through undiluted.

You know now why this positioning is so vital.

And I create headline, title, branding, and experience story from your answers to my questions I ask when you take my service.

I use your words, not mine to tell “You are the best fit.”

 

 

You get your resume done

Let me tell you have three challenges. You have to

  1. First, pass ATS Application Tracking System.
  2. Then get attention of a recruiter (You know 6-second test), and
  3. Interest the hiring manager.

I write “You are the best Fit” resume.

 

ATS and 6 Second Test

My job is to get you an interview. To achieve it the first I clear ATS, get the attention and interest of the recruiters & hiring managers. I use your strengths to your advantage and tell "You are the best fit for the job" to the company you apply.

I use headline and title to address first two challenges.

  • To clear ATS I use title and job function from the company’s job advertisement. The company will short resumes for the job role, function, experience, etc. as per their requirement and when you have those words from their advertisement, your resume will be in their selected file.
  • To get recruiter’s attention I put a headline because it tells what you do and contributes to the company up front. No one can ignore a headline, and when it says their interest, it works every time, and they read further.

I am a trained headline writer.

Tell what you will do for the company.

Branding

To make sure recruiters and hiring managers to pay attention to resume I brand your resume.

The branding should read like it fulfills the company’s potential employee’s job requirement. It has few bullets and a statement.

Example from one sales position resume:


Self-learning and training made me ‘Customer First’ person and I become a trainer for colleagues by bosses. That earned me a place in ‘Winner Circle,’ an exclusive club of high achievers.

  • 10 years sales experience.
  • Proven results were exceeding goals in a customer-oriented, results-driven environment.
  • Responsible for building client relations.
  • Meet and exceed sales budget always.

This branding is put between the name and title and before experiences, which is usually objective or summary and both are irrelevant today. I use that space to your advantage to convey what you contribute to the company you apply.

You are with me

You are thinking what this headline and branding.....
Who does it on resumes................
How it looks..............
People may laugh .......ridicule.......

I agree and it's perception because of standard resume never have headlines or branding statements.

But think beyond resume and ask what gets attention in any communication, news paper, or media?

Answer is a Headline. No dispute.

Headline writers are in demand and paid handsomely. Fortunately I am trained one.

Judge below left side is client resume VS mine on left.

You must get attention of recruiters and hiring managers. Branding is telling your suitability upfront. They will read further with interest.

Let us interest hiring manager.

Hiring Manager

I use a Story for your battle with the hiring manager. I love hiring managers, and you should love also. You know they have a big problem? Every hiring manager does complain “It is hard to get good candidates.”

This complaint is your opportunity. Telling them you are good can work, but I do more. You should do it also. Here is how you interest hiring manager.

The core of resume is an experience. Most of you have a list of experiences. I write your experiences with stories. The story tells how you perform the job they want to fill.

Here is an example of my sales position resume to give you an idea.


My 110%+ Goals Story Cox Communications – Oklahoma City, Ok Account Manager 9/2013-5/2014

I am an aggressive seller and had goals in mind. To reach "Winner's Circle" I had to average 110% to goal throughout the year to be eligible for the Award, and that was not always easy due to the competition. What I did differently? I did lots of secret shopping on the competitors such as DirecTV, Dish Network, and AT&T to strategize my sales technique. That made me trainer also.

  • Responsible for the development and facilitation of various training topics for 20+ stores to ensure complete knowledge of products, services, and independent associate development. I Gave sales training to all levels of employees
  • Responsible for prioritizing, identifying, and publishing the marketing and educational content with all staff member associated one on one.
  • Provide work direction and coaching to employees for career/personal development.
  • Handle day-to-day relationship management, cold calling, outside prospecting, and maintenance of clients.
  • Responsible for building customer relations.
  • Meet and exceed sales goal.

Do you feel a difference between your list and Story?

Do you think the story will make a difference?

Hiring managers read and like to know more. It prompts to call you to find out more about you and discuss.

Go for it.

Stop

I am not over with experience. Keep in mind that experience is the most important element of your resume.

I always make sure experience bullets are relevant to the company’s job function because hiring managers are combing from resumes, who are a good fit to do the job he wants to fill?

Here my job description matching sheet works. I put bullets from their description matching your skills and experience, and it resonates with them.

I keep your resume experience as it is because it's your domain and you are best to tell what you did for your job. I don't write experience bullets I put story with your experience bullets which you don't have.

Hang On

You better do the Title Test. You will send your resume via an email. So file attached will be shown as per the file name you saved it. It could be many things. I won't site funny file names but assume you gave your name, as most people do and your file will be visible in an email

(Your Name) resume docx

Now think you will give the name as per the title I suggest, and I always give functional names, your file name will be

(Your Name) zero defect production pro resume docx   for a production position

OR

(Your Name) sales achiever resume docx   for a sales position

Think what will recruiter or hiring manager will feel when they see your resume for the first time? What will interest them? Your distinct, unique title or common name resumes?

Standard VS New

This file name is no brainier and you will agree. Story may be new to you. Indeed it is new so look below and decide. Left is client original experience and right is my experience story. You should be loving headline, story and what more I am talking now. You will be happy. I use it because hiring managers notice it and love it.

Up To Date Pipelines

If you ask me “Am I happy?” My answer is absolute because I do an important job of maintaining critical infrastructures (The pipelines a major one) up to date that never lost a single production hour. My bosses are happy and recognized me by inviting me to major marketing event to talk about my pipelines, and I demonstrated our products to major oil companies. That leads to the sale of our products. The reason for my success was I created documents of what I learned which become training manuals for other technicians. It is a joy to me that I keep my flocks trained, ready for any eventuality, and contribute to company sale though it’s not my area.

You can send your resume to me at mukesh@jobgettingresume.com with a job advertisement's copy or link to start your resume creation.

Stand Out Resume

What you should always do for a resume is differentiate. And notice how I do it above.

  1. The first is a headline
  2. Your name must have a functional title
  3. Summary, objective has no place. Use it for branding. I put a subheahing with bullets.
  4. Experience is core and should start with a subheading. I put a story.

See the only goal of a resume is to get an interview, period.

And to do it we need the first attention of recruiter and then the interest of hiring manager.

I put triggers for attention and make hiring manager read.

 

You should apply to the jobs relevant to your skills and match job requirements.

We first decide it with my job requirement matching sheet. It can be for a position you aspire.

Do you need to apply for 100's of jobs?

I wonder when people say "I applied to hundreds of job and get no response." It's insane. If you do there is something wrong with you. How can one do it when you don't get any results?

Let me share one request. You will understand.

Client email:

Below is a job description for Harvard Univ Executive Director for Alumni Relations and Development.

With my resume, with your talent, is it possible to obtain this kind of position?

Basic Qualifications
Bachelor's Degree required. 7+ years of related experience. Experience in financial management, project management, and staff supervision. ,

Comfort with new technology and ability to learn new systems quickly. Experience working with both alumni and non-alumni constituencies.

My response:

Dear (Name),

You ask "With my resume, with your talent, is it possible to obtain this kind of position?"

I say I will get you an interview but can't say about obtaining a position.

To convince Harvard recruiter is not difficult.

You have two experiences relevant to their job requirements.

What you don't have is a master degree and Harvard experience few competitors many have it.

I believe a good story will get you in the door, mean an interview. Some success of fund raised is enough to prompt them to call for discussion.

It's your call to try.

If you want to go ahead, send the same job description to this thread again. I will ask for your work to dig out a story and you should be quick in response. I usually finish resume in a week.

Thank you for interest.


I am not a recruiter but try to help you target relevant job and spend time where it make sense. Don't try to apply to irrelevant jobs. Usually people ask me for resumes updates for about two months. They know where to spend time and efforts.

Our Interaction

See how resume creation interaction goes with pros. I doubt you do it with others. The work I put in is to put you on top. You will hardly come across and know fine detailing I do. Let me show you examples how I do.

Headline

My headline for a sales manager position resume:

"You will build relationships and sales growth with (Name), an achiever on your team who performed for three companies."

Client change it to

"Are you ready for your team to build relationships and create sales growth?"

He doesn’t want his name to use. He thinks it arrogant.

My response”:

This I don't think is a good headline because everyone wants to build a relationship and want sales growth. It is a general statement. What we should say is you Mr. (Name) is the man who contributes or achieve it for you.

And he responded, “I agree and am okay.”

One told me how you could charge $400 for putting a headline on a resume. Yes, for the resume critique I said,

“I do a headline, functional title, story, and branding. I use experience, contact, etc. from your resume” so he said it.

Story

My Story: I mentioned the same earlier also. I repeat it for client's interaction.

EXPERIENCE

(Name ..... Subhead)

You will add a real estate wizard a proud veteran of army’s discipline and dedication to delivering in your TEAM. I am best at leading teams through complex projects, whether it is master planning, project management, or asset management. I spent 20 years in leading high performing individuals whether they are employees, clients, consultants, architects, and general contractors.  It starts with the first office development project on schedule and under budget.  We had a very strict 24-month construction schedule, and we were able to overcome many setbacks and obstacles to meet the client timeline.  And we keep the project under budget saving the client approximately $1.5M. My nickname was ‘Iron Major’ and as a Master negotiator; Consensus builder entrusted with the most difficult tasks and always delivered.

Client change to:

_______________________________     PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE_____________________

You will add a real estate professional with Air Force discipline and dedication to delivering results to your TEAM. I am best at leading teams through complex projects, whether it is master planning, project management, or asset management. I spent 20 years in Air Force as a civil engineer, leading high performing professionals whether they were military, civilian, clients, consultants, architects, and/or general contractors.  I left the Air Force for Cornell University to obtain a Masters in Real Estate and pursue my dream of being a real estate development professional.  Most recently, I led a team in completing a $224M office development project on schedule and under budget.  We had a very strict 36-month design and construction schedule, and we were able to overcome many setbacks and obstacles to meet the client timeline.  And we keep the project under budget saving the client approximately $1.5M.  In the Air Force, my nickname was ‘, Iron Major.’  I was entrusted with the most difficult tasks and always delivered outstanding results.

My response:

I am glad you try to change and keep to the standard also.

Your story is detailed and specific. I always am general and bit ambiguous. It creates curiosity and specifics will be discussed later in an interview.

You must put subheading. It is to get an attention and a trigger to read.

A story sub-heading will interest recruiter and hiring manager to read.

Client response:

“Thanks, I like your advice and format.  Should I take some of the detail out of the bullets then?”

Perception

You have perception, belief and preconceived ideas on many things. Let me talk on resume only.

1.

Client response to my resume

“I am not happy with the resume draft that you have provided you
Basically copied the points in the job description to the resume. Can you
Put your inputs to the resume and refine it more? Put some keywords
from your end with the resume that I have provided.”

Me: I am trying to find what I copied.

Here is job description/requirement form the advertisement.

Tell me which line from above you find on the resume.

And for Keywords what you want?

The basic keyword is a post, experience, and functional terms.

We have Network engineer, Network Professional, Networking Standard, etc. I will tell more on keyword after hearing you.

I always use what you gave to a job requirement matching sheet. I never write experience bullets because it is work performed by the client and he can tell best what he did and performed.

I write branding, story, and headline plus give a title. And I said it on my webpage.

I try to understand what you want so, please clarify, and I can clear your doubts.

Thanks,

Client: Help me write a good summary which has the necessary keywords and at
the same time is eye-catching to the recruiters as I believe the summary
Is the key of resume what is your take on this? Isn't summary the same
for all position?

Me: I am sorry Objective, and summary is outdated, and no one uses it.

Do Google search.

Please tell me what you want?

You write "Isnlt summary the same for all position? Specks how off the mark you are with effective resume.

Resume must be specific to the job. Never a resume can be same for two different jobs.

Even for the equal position but to different company resume should be tailored to the individual company.  I hope you remember my website page

You know why resume fail?

The main reason for resume failure is ‘No customization of a resume.’

Let us not talk about resume element. You want a summary and if your recruiter wants it, tell me I will send one, and it is the same company or different company?

2

Client: "Since you said you were uncomfortable speaking and preferred email... I sent you my requests via email and now that I have received your reply, I am not happy with your proposal for the following reasons:

  • Although some may like the style... I don't think I like the style of resume you're proposing from your response or as explained in your website.
  • I do not want a resume for a particular job as you are asking for, but instead for any employer.

I have decided to go with one of the other proposals instead."

Me: "It's your choice. I wish you best for the job.

I use ad elements on a resume which is new and you prefer the traditional style. And a generic resume for any employer hardly work. Best luck.

Thank you for time and considering my proposal."

 

Are we on the same page now?

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I have experience in my industry?

A: My major clients are from IT, Oil & Gas, Health, and Marketing. I did variety of resumes for travel, education to accounting pros.

Q: What is my fees?

A: Current fee is $199.

Q: Is cover letter included?

A: Yes I give cover letter if asked. Now cover letter are not important as they used to be in the past, because you send resume via an email. I have 2-3 sentences email mainly making them read the resume. You should have a creative title. You did a title test I asked earlier? Check again above. You stand out with a file name.

Your Resume

I am sure no recruiter or hiring manager will ignore you with my resume. You will always get attention and read.

What are your chances of your resume to be in top 1% resumes?

I offer specific resume for the job you want, and you will get more than an interview. Now you ask what this more. It is you will be remembered a creative guy/gal with such resume.I write using your answers. I tweak and make it effective. I am an ad man and know it how to get attention and interest.

I write what you don't have a headline, title, story, and branding from your input only. And keep what you have that is experience and education, because you are the best to tell what you did in the job but can't articulate yourself well. I am good at it.

Let us create “You are the best fit” resume.

Your Satisfaction

Since you will get a resume with a headline and a different format it may be hard for conservatives to try.

The simple solution is to remove the headline, and you have a standard resume but unique attention-getting format and triggers to interest recruiters and hiring managers.

Please note I have told and explained everything

  1. Resume is not standard but different.
  2. I use your answers to create it keeping experience as it is but adding elements you don't have to get you an interview.
  3. Please note I use YOUR ANSWERS to craft attention getting elements, not my words. My creativity is telling your story in your words the way recruiters and hiring managers listens to get you an interview. Many say it's cut and paste, which you can't do.

You are paying for the different aggressive approach, and there is no refund.

My take on resumes

The only purpose of a resume is to get an interview, period.

A resume is your most important career document.

It is a sales document. You are selling yourself to the company you apply. You have to shout to win the competition. I say shout from the rooftop.

I am an ad man and use ad elements a headline, story, trigger, and branding to differentiate you. I deviate from standard to achieve your success, get you the attention of recruiters and hiring managers; and your next level interview.

I can’t imagine a sales document without a headline. If you find it assertive, remove the headline, and you still have a much better stand out resume with a creative title, triggers, and story.

You are good

Most pros are hard to open up. They hardly feel they have done great things. People find it difficult telling success. Most feel they have nothing worthwhile to say. The truth is everyone has good things to say.

You think your work is normal and average and nothing to say about, but the same info is knowledge for others.

You know that famous beer story of Schlitz beer reached to the number one position in six months by simply saying the process of making beer in advertising. Everyone make the beer the same way, but Schlitz said it and people find value in information.

Your headline, title, branding, and experience story will be from your answers to my questions I ask when you take my service.

I brought outstanding acts form ordinary situations. You need not be a price winner. A genuine effort is worth telling. Hiring manager loves action takers, doers.

You read how I get my first job in the USA with a different resume. It's at the bottom. I defy the standard for better.

Smart pros change when things are not working try new ways and experiment.

For VP/Director/CIO/COO level

The competition at your level is intense.

You need not worry ATS as a recruiter or a head hunter may approach you. But they also ask for a fresh resume.

You want a stand out resume showing your unique strength and achievements.

I agree with you 100% we show it. But slow down you have all the time to tell your story in an interview. A resume is to get an interview. We need to interest the company to consider you to discuss and talk further with you.

Think any of your best deal you must have first get attention and interest the party entering the deal.  It could be reference, a request to meet, etc.

Does that reference or request content your achievements or strengths?

A resume is such reference and a request to get your interview.

Get an interview and tell your story. The companies will listen when they are interested.

You can send your resume to me at mukesh@jobgettingresume.com with a job advertisement's copy or link to start your resume creation.

Next step

You like what you have seen and thinking to go for it. Many have said it, and the question is money now.

You have a choice. I know you have offers at $100 also and may be more than $199 which is my fee.

I am confident both ends offer lower and higher than mine won’t give uniqueness I offer. Evaluate chances of getting attention with new tactics I use. Agreed I have no recommendations. I will get enough in due course. I do not doubt because in 2017 after four months I started writing articles on Pulse, LinkedIn invited me to review profiles for their pilot program A lot of you pros will give me good recommendation though I have none now. It’s my starting phase.

Your problem is an interview and solution is convincing resume.

 

You shop around; you have to pay $600 to $2000 for a custom resume. You know why resume fail?

The main reason for resume failure is ‘No customization of a resume.’

The facts

$199 you pay is your two or three days salary at even a minimum wages, which is not the case for most of you.

All that you hear about video resume and creativity on resume, never spend a time and dime on design, templates, etc. Do it only if you believe

"The best-dressed person gets the job."

Better you do Google search for "What hiring managers look in the resumes?"

My takeaway from it,

  1. Recruiters and hiring managers give zero marks to design, templates, etc. In fact they hate it.
  2. Their only interest is your experience to know how you match and fit for the job they are filling.

You can stand out with your experience story, if you go for resume you see above. Do you want that interview and start your job process or continue with applying, apply, apply and no reply? The choice is yours, still, use same standard templates patterned resume.

OR

Try new ways. Test headline and story resume. Get an interview for the job.

Let us start

  1. Send me your current resume at mukesh@jobgettingresume.com with job advertisement link or a copy of job description. If you have not decided a job to apply,  tell the position you aspire.
  2. I will prepare a job requirement matching sheet for the job/position. You will confirm, edit, add, and send it back to me.
  3. You will answer my few questions about your work and try to tell maximum in answers. Your input is a fodder for your headline, title, story, and branding.
  4. Then I will send you the first draft in a day or two, and we will finish your resume in about ten days. It will be 3-4 emails back and forth. You will enjoy resume creation.
  5. You will pay $199 fee to my PayPal ID shahmhs@gmail.com

I commit an interview

Please understand I commit to an interview, not a job. Job offer depends on many factors. You show what I do for a resume. There is no refund for resume service.

Well, I mentioned refund after this email.

"Hello Mukesh, I have to say that my resume has been a disappointment, I'm getting no job hits, and jobs that I do get interviewed with tell me I need to change it all up.I really need to know how to go about getting my money back?"

He is asking refund for my resume success. Let me make it clear, it is your job to prove what ever we say on resume. I put what you tell me. I never write any experience details I always take it from your input. You must give fact which you can prove in an interview.

A Request

Executives interested in my service want to know more and ask for the best time to talk. Please note I have an impaired speech because of a cancer surgery, so better you email me at mukesh@jobgettingresume.com, and I will answer all your question.

Your Interview is Easy

It is easy to get noticed and get an interview. I am good at it and get you one. If interested you can read, how I got my first job in the USA? It shows how I got noticed.

How I got my first job in the USA

I am Mukesh Shah and fight my handicap with resume.

In May 2005, I came to the USA on immigration visa from India at the age 55. At the age, people start retirement planning. I have to start a fresh and no question of retirement. I was excited of American dream since my younger days.

I came with one handicap an impaired speech because of cancer surgery. I am account graduate and marketing diploma holder and had experience of 30 years. I choose Houston, TX mainly for the support of my childhood friend. Took a house opposite him and started life in the US.

Finding work was the only job after I get my social security card because without it no one considers you for employment.

Job Hunt

I did what a best practice was. Created Monster account and started applying. I consider my no American experience and education/degree were disadvantages.

And major problem was initial phone screening here all recruiters do.

I can’t communicate on the phone, and things didn’t go further. I tried to email of my speech handicap and seek a personal interview, but no one responded.

Job Fairs

Job fairs were an option and were good for me. I can go and talk to recruiters at least. I usually write if not understood in person and it works. In person, people are friendly.

Challenge

My challenge was to overcome my speech handicap. The tool I had was a resume. I have to prove through a resume that I am worth hiring.

I can’t talk to recruiters as they won’t understand my speech. One need time to adjust to it and that too require patient. No one had time at the fair booth.

180 Turn to Resume

I was seeking accounting job. There was a job fair organized by Houston chapter of Texas CPA association. The announcement states if “You have accounting knowledge we have a job for you.” I wanted exactly that.

Since it was CPA job fair, all recruiters must be accountants I assumed. I thought carefully, how to differentiate myself. The best way to sell is to talk the language your prospects understand.

Well, the accountant’s language is balance sheet and profit and loss statements. I thought of a balance sheet as my resume instead of a traditional chronological resume.

I created Mukesh Shah’s Balance Sheet.

There were Assets and Liabilities columns, and I put my account degree, experience, writings as my assets and my speech handicap, medical expenses as liabilities. My equity was learning mind and creative thinking.

I did this for the attention of recruiters and initial interest. I was confident if they talk I will prove I am fit for the job. And fortunately, my Balance Sheet got the attention of all the recruiters I met, and I get my first job as a staff accountant at local CPA firm.

Thanks to my 180 turn to resume and made ‘Balance Sheet’ my resume.

I am not thinking about this much. It is an effort I did to get a job nothing big deal. But in 2015 I did one headline writing course, and there I mentioned my experience, and I got comments from fellow participants. The comments encourage me sharing this here.

My Intro:

“I did sell my concepts through letters. In Houston also, I got my first job at CPA firm by a different approach to resume. I went to a job fair of CPA association. Since I had a speech problem and was desperate for a job as I have to start in The US, I created my resume in accounting language. I made Balance Sheet as a resume. Balance is education, experience, etc. and liability is impaired speech, medical expenses, etc. It was a success my resume got the attention of all CPA recruiters and got a job with a CPA firm.”

"Since I read your post on Saturday, I used your idea in helping out a young programmer. For his, the graphic has three parts: input, processor, output. The input is his skills, and the processor is him, the output is the people/groups/impacts that he's had." -by RobM » Mon Aug 10, 2015, 5:32 am

 

Action Time

Let us start. Send me your current resume at mukesh@jobgettingresume.com with job advertisement link or a copy of job description. If you have not decided a job to apply,  tell the position you aspire.

Senior executives are impressed with my contribution. Headline and branding is bit aggressive to many but they are convinced. The competition at director/VP level is intense. The differentiation is key. My headline, functional title, branding and story does it.

I wish you best for the job.

Thank you for your time and reading my story.

Mukesh.
