Thanks Vincent, I don't have much time left today to pursue this, but tomorrow should be good.  I am attaching the Word doc in the hope that you can get an idea of my skill set.  But I now need to revise this to match my IT-oriented goals.  On the one hand, it looks like merely a matter of re-arranging content.  But I think it's a little more complicated than that.  Parris%20DC%20colour%20CV.doc

Group vibrancy is contingent upon member needs so, if members express they have a need for assistance with their resume or any other matter, I'm more than happy to engage them within this or any of the other groups created to help them help themselves...

This group seems a little slow, but would love to get a hand with revising my resume.

My resume just landed me a great new job! I was just about to pay a professional to do it over for a fee. I still would love to know what makes a good resume great, and how to make my resume stand out.

Hi Vincent,

I have 14 years of experience as a recruiter specialized in the manufacturing industry in Mexico and the US/Mexico border region.

I know that there are hundreds of resume experts that provide advise about the basic guidelines to follow in creating one and I always recommend the job seekers to read and review their advise to understand the basic framework needed to create one.

I also believe that for a candidate to say " I LOVE my resume" he or she needs to know that there is not a perfect formula or recipe to create a resume and that you might need to have several "lovely resumes" tailored to different audiences and their expectations.

Your resume is in a way, a reflection of your own identity, your self esteem and self concept therefore it has be very unique and different because everbody is different.

The fact that a job seeker posses certain qualifications and skills don't necesarily means that the job seekers' audience is interested to know them all. Therefore, the candidate needs to highlight only the relevants aspects of his/her expertise that are directly related to the qualifications required to perform a job in a given company.

In summary, you can use a resume template to highlight your qualifications, achievements, technical expertise, abilities and education & training but the content of the resume will need to reflect your professional identity and how all those aspects combined make you the right fit for the position that you are targeting.

Therefore, for a resume to be lovely needs to be lovely for the job seeker but also to the potential employers targeted and fulfill their needs and expectations. In other words, your resume will need to reflect your value added from your perspective but also will need to be perceived as valuable for prospective employers. You need to close the loop in the communication process to make sure that the message that you want to send to your audience is perceived in the same way that you expected and the only way that you might be successful in achieving that goal is for you to get to know your audience and understand their needs and expectations.

Dear Vincent,

Good evening. Another excellent idea of yours... I think that as a job seeker, discussing about the never ending issue (crafting a "good" resume), will be extremely useful in terms of clarifying things and maybe "miths".

Again, Thank you very much.


Mario Lopez.
