We’re having a great discussion about how to help employers pick you out of a stack of resumes on a blog post I wrote a few days ago.
One of the suggestions from Andrew Krzmarzick was to headline your resume with “Top 5 Reasons Why I’ll Nail This Position.”
I wonder whether I could really boil down what I offer and cover just the highest high points. Naturally, that leads me to Twitterlike thinking.
So here’s your challenge: imagine any job you’d apply for. Describe it briefly, then sum up what you offer for that job in 140 characters or less.
Job: leading a large, complex, wide-ranging agency’s web efforts (I know, it’s a stretch!).
What I offer: Led: 9/11, Katrina, other crisis sites; EPA web governance; EPA, gov social media. Pushed: boundaries, creativity, innovation! Freq speaker.
