Resume giving you trouble? We can help.
When you start writing your resume, begin with one question: what is the purpose of a resume?
The sole purpose of your resume is to get an introduction. That’s it.
It’s not a record of everything you’ve ever done; it’s not an assignment you’ll be graded on. It doesn’t even have to get you the job – it just needs to get you an interview.
With that in mind, what are the things you could talk confidently about in the interview to impress the employer? How do you present these things in a way that will convince employers you’re worth meeting? This is what you should be considering when you build your resume.
GiftedHire’s LAUNCH program will help you discover these answers, and more – tailored to your specific career path.

- If the same statement could apply to most people, it’s not interesting.
- If the statement is vague, it’s not convincing. Use details to back up your claims.
