✍️You know what the worst part about résumés is? Writing job descriptions for each position without sounding repetitive!
.
The P.A.R method is a great strategy to use when you’re tweaking your résumé! Here’s what you do:
.
✔️Problem: Think of a problem you encountered at each job.
✔️Action: What was the action you took to resolve it?
✔️Result: What was the end result?
.
This way it shows the employer you’re an impactful problem solver! AND, you won’t use the same bullets in each description 😬
.
.
.
Oh yeah, and P.A.R statements are great to share in interviews!

    Are the expectations for resumes changing? Mine is organized well but only has basic job duties under each previous employer. Is it becoming standard to have longer descriptions? My job hardly ever asks for resumes before I get to interview finalists, so I’m not so current these days lol.

    @cj4ebay there should only be about 4-6 bullets for each job, but it’s better to make your descriptions unique since on average an online posting is receiving 250+ applications. It’s better to stand out and describe specific projects you worked on and how you executed them.

    @alexandria_bellivan I’ll keep that in mind, you probably wouldn’t be surprised that back when we did resume reviews, most weren’t even spelled correctly.

    @cj4ebay not surprised at all lol. I have actually seen resumes from HR professionals and recruiters that needed a lot of work.
