Skills-based Resumes

 

 Have you ever thought you might need to update your resume? Ever wondered if there are other effective formats for creating a resume besides the time-honoured chronological one that lists your work experience?

 Maybe you have been out of the workforce for some time and don't want a glaring gap to be so obvious. Maybe you haven't worked in the area for some time but have experience from many years ago. Perhaps you have the skills needed for the job but they aren't very clear when someone reads your resume.

You might want to take a look at Yana Parker's The Resume Catalog.

This book has great suggestions for re-organizing your resume information into skills-based sections that make it easy for the employer to see how great you would be in that current opening. There is also a website which has more samples and gives some great suggestions.
