Energizing Job Descriptions

One of the distinguishing features of an excellent resume is its job descriptions: They start out strong and they sustain interest by emphasizing key skills.

Like a good headline, the first sentence in a job description should pique the reader's attention and draw him into the copy that follows.

Our goal as resume writers is to GET the potential employer's attention. We do this by energizing our job descriptions. And we KEEP the reader's attention by focusing on relevant accomplishments.

This segment focuses on job descriptions and related issues such as:

  • Sentence Integrity
  • Parallel Sentence Structure
  • Run-on Sentences
  • Emphasizing Relevant Data / Targeting
  • Sentence Flow / Cadence
