Extreme Resum Makeover Time!!!

Safe Harbor

This presentation may contain opinions on resumes that may involve risks, uncertainties and hurt feelings. I know we all put a lot of effort into writing the perfect resume but if any such hurt feelings materialize or if any of the assumptions proves incorrect, the results of this workshop could differ materially from the results expressed or implied by the advice I give.

All statements made are made with the best of intentions and only intended to help you make that bad ass resumeso you can land your #dreamjob! But actually, Im here to help and the best way to help is be as candid with my feedback as possible!

Make Salesforce the focus of your resume!!!Include specific facts in the Career Profile!!

My eyes jump to the cert and then the AE roleBuild this experience into the resume!

Lots of stuff but not focusing on the right experience!

1 sentence for SFDC/CRM exp1 sentence for your background exp1 sentence for Community involvement

3-5 lines total! Too much text!!! I only really catch the highlighted when skimming

Careful with having the whole resume be too bullet-heavy!

Combining this into 1 company will show your awesome work tenure!!
