[]Introduction

Try to imagine your dream job. You are doing only what you have wanted to do since you were seven. You are working with fantastic, happy people. You share so many of the same likes, dislikes and passions. You raise your kids with them. They get along great with your friends and spouse. The boss is nice, not working you to the bitter end and understanding where you’re coming from. The building is beautiful. Every inch of every floor, ceiling, wall, desk and chair is clean enough to eat off of. You’d rather spend time in the office, cubicle, or whatever room you want to work in than in your living room. The bathrooms are better. The pay is phenomenal and the benefits are even better.

Now come back to reality for a second. I am sure you have thought and dreamt about this job at least a few times in your life. Maybe you have seen it on TV or have watched as your friends got something similar. Maybe you even came close to something like it in the past. But have you ever really sat down and thought, really considered, what it might take to get that kind of job? Okay, yes, in all honesty, you will rather spend your life at a beach than work somewhere. But just consider for a minute a good job, a job that fits you, a job that makes you happy, or a job that at least leaves you satisfied working there. Have you ever thought about what it might take to get that kind of job?

So, okay, yes, you need to have the ability to do the job. It’d be tough working on Wall Street if you couldn’t multiply two single-digit numbers. Yes, you also need to be willing to put in the time. Again, think how difficult it would be getting a job as a surgeon if you only had two hours a day to spare. But suppose you had those things. Most likely, you know at least what kind of job you want to do, and you know at least a thing or two about doing it. In fact, you could probably do it at least as well as the next guy or gal, and maybe even better than some of the people who are already doing it. So, the question becomes:

Why not you?

The answer all boils down to one simple fact: to be doing a job, you need to actually be hired. The only thing that separates you from the people already working in the industry is the fact that they have been hired and you haven’t. Being hired is obviously the only way you can come to work at a particular job. You ask: How do I get hired?

The first step in getting there is simple, and a word you probably already know and have used a few times in your life: résumé. Unless you know somebody in a position of power or influence in the place you want to work who is willing to get you a job (and if you do, good luck and congratulations), you need to convince someone – a total stranger, in fact – that they should hire you. The key to doing that is a resume. Even in jobs where the boss isn’t a complete stranger or there are interviews (because not many jobs have them and the ones that do make sure only the best prospective employees get to the interview stage), a good resume is a keys that open the doors to the workforce.

You might not be familiar with resumes, even if you have been hired before. You may never have needed to write one to get hired at the job you have. Even if you have written a resume before, maybe you weren’t given the most thorough explanation for all the different forms, functions, and parts it has. Even if you were given the thorough, business-school instruction for everything about resumes, it can’t hurt to refresh every once in a while. That’s where this how-to manual comes in. It’s a thorough, step-by-step procedure for creating an excellent resume.

What is a Resume?

Three definitions of resume, as given by Merriam-Webster’s, are: “a summary,” “curriculum vitae,” and “a set of accomplishments.” ¹ The entry keeps going on and on and on, talking about how it is a French word and everything else. None of that is really important, especially when talking about resumes as something specifically to get you hired. In fact, it probably only makes most people more tired and confused before they give up entirely, copying and pasting the template of a resume found on Wikipedia. Rest assured: most employers don’t care if you can spew off random definitions or speak French. But, for those that do, you can show them those skills on your resume. The question still remains, though: What is a resume?
