We are naturally configured to do things that benefit us.
Im really trying to avoid the word selfish but if you really think about it, that's what we are..selfish. Humans are selfish beings more often than not extremely conceited, only doing that which accrues them profit.
..but, who can really blame them, Darwin did coin the 'survival for the fittest' theory.
Then again some really wise fellow came up with 'no man is an island' to try and introduce the concept of sharing.
Well, Ive recently been obliged with the task of drawing up resumes for that 'dream job' I hope to land to be able to cater to my refined savvy for the good things I covet.
In that course, I have learnt not to mention that I only need the job because I plan to save up and head out to the 'Maldives' in a year or two, or because the real estate on my way home drives me crazy and owning a chunk of it would do things I can't put in words to my ego.
I've also not mentioned that my wardrobe needs a makeover(like it usually does around this time of the year due to the festivities and unprecedented weight gains that come with the former.
My resume is lacking in things 'me'.
..because the employer doesn't give a hoot about my needs but what I can do for him before he tends to those.
Like 'me', he is looking to see what he can gain from my interaction with the company i.e. What can my brains do for him? What Im I bringing to the table..in this case, HIS table before I can talk about what id like on my own table.
Drafting the IT resume/cover letter can be a herculean task especially when it comes to coining the perfect words to create appeal so that the employer actually gets to the 'referees' bit of your resume.
When I say words, im not referring to the descriptive wiles some writers result to while trying to explain the simplest of things, for example calling the help/house maid a 'general factotum'.
No, im talking about basic language and highlights to make your resume stand out.
I came across a few documents to help with this..THIS
was the best according to me but you can also check google and Victor Cheng
I hope it helps, atleast to a certain extent.
Also, do give tips and worthwhile advice for those who have been in the job market for a longer period;)
