HOW TO WRITE A WINNING RESUME
The main purpose of a resume is to convince an employer to grant you an interview.
There are two kinds. One is the familiar “tombstone” that lists where you went to school
and where you’ve worked in chronological order. The other is what I call the “functional”
resume- descriptive, fun to read, unique to you and much more likely to land you an
It’s handy to have a “tombstone” for certain occasions. But prospective employers throw
away most of those unrequested “tombstone” lists, preferring to interview the quick
rather than the dead.
What follows are tips on writing a functional resume that will get read- a resume that

How to psych yourself up: The secret is to think about the self before you start writing
about yourself. Take four or five hours off, not necessarily consecutive, and simply write
down your every accomplishment in your life, on or off the job, that made you feel
effective. Don’t worry at first about what it all means. Study the list and try to spot
patterns. As you study your list, you will come closer to the meaning: identifying your
marketable skills. Once you discover patterns, give names to your cluster of
