Deep down I think what drives most of us is the desire to help others. Let’s face it, a selfish life isn’t a very happy, fulfilling, or successful one. Sure, we all want a great career and to be paid well for the work we do. But a life invested in others, a life built on your contribution to making the world a better place—that’s a life of purpose and passion. It’s a life that offers long-term fulfillment and career satisfaction. So while these major soul-searching questions might not seem to have a lot to do with writing your resume, they actually affect it more than you think.

Numbers are very persuasive and hard to argue against. They provide tangible proof that you provide real results. Use numbers throughout your resume. Sometimes I have clients who think they simply don’t have any numbers, maybe because they were not in a sales role or a position that affected the company’s bottom line.

Your resume is a simple way to tell a powerful story — your story. If you want to make it past the first round of consideration by an HR professional or hiring manager, you need to craft a compelling resume that stands out from the stack. In other words, throwing your previous job responsibilities into a bulleted list isn't going to cut it anymore. Some of the career advice your high school guidance counselor gave you on how to make a resume is long outdated. For instance, if you still put your full address or references' contact information on your resume, 2018 is the year to cut it. Transform it into a persuasive story using these six on-trend fixes.

It's the age of digital, so employers love to see a candidate who has internet savvy. One way to create a positive impression — and improve your overall online reputation — is by creating a LinkedIn profile that highlights your major career achievements. Your LinkedIn profile serves as a modern-day resume a potential employer can easily scroll. Link your job descriptions to any online work product, such as blog posts or technical papers, to show what you have produced. Be sure to add your LinkedIn URL to the top of your traditional resume, so potential employers can access it quickly if they prefer digital resumes. Need inspiration?
