If you have the patience to sit down and read through some of the hundreds of resumes out there that people fill out for job opportunities, you will quickly find that the majority of them are copy-pasted in the proper format and do not do justice to the work they did to get to where they are. Instead of copying the wordings, they just keep their resumes as is.
This lack of superior writing makes the resume seem flat and uninspiring to your readers. Not only that, but the hiring manager will often see a resume filled with keywords without actually seeing the content.
So, how can you make your management consultant resume stand out? What you need to do is to be bold and creative. You have to write your own resume.
You see, business managers and recruiters are looking for leaders, not followers. So when you find yourself at the bottom of the pile, you should really consider yourself lucky because if you were not an executive before, you are certainly qualified to be one now.
So, you need to begin by being an intelligent person. Be sure that your resume is informative, to the point, but do not forget that you need to communicate your leadership skills.
Most businesses have already had the chance to interview or possibly even hire many full years of people who could potentially fit into your position. They know what to expect from you and your ability to lead those people.
So, instead of trying to put yourself in a position to make everyone else think you know everything, try to make yourself a leader and try to remember that you are only human and some things just are not going to go your way. You must go through each project knowing that it may not be the end of the world.
Just because someone does not seem to understand a project, this does not mean that the business manager should not continue working on it. No matter how many times you complete an assignment, it is not going to be good enough.
