Seth had been sending out an old resume to his networks that was not achievement and metrics focused, and he was getting a lukewarm response. We loaded his resume with lots of numbers that would convey his value to his next employer.
One of the issues we negotiated with Seth is that he wanted to market himself both as a capital projects executive and a sourcing/supply chain executive. While these two areas often intersect, there was potential to write different resumes for these two focal points. We ended up with three versions of his resume: this one (which was all-encompassing but through a capital projects lens), plus a version targeted for capital projects and another for sourcing. In the end, he ended up using this more complete version for the majority of his job search activities.
We mentioned the companies where Seth had worked in the top summary because BIGBIO is an extremely well-known large company and we also wanted him to come across as marketable to smaller companies.
Rather than have a Core Competencies section, we placed Seth’s 3 most important skills under his title, and, since they fit, put the rest of his key competencies in a bullet. We also used the top bullets to provide a sense of the range of industries and functions where he has experience/expertise.
For each of his positions, we chose an overarching accomplishment followed by bullets of how he achieved the larger project wins.
Seth had a huge uptick in the response he was getting from his networks. He obtained a position as Senior Director of Capital Project Management at a global engineering & consulting company in the biotech sphere.
