    description optional) Austin, TX
  • Present Position Title, (02/01-Present)
    Position Title, (03/99-02/01)
  • 1st bullet point should target one of
    the 6-8 key skills in order of what you perceive
    to be the most desired component. Each bullet
    point should not be more than 3 lines, 4 at the
    most. KISS!
  • Look for was to quantify and qualify
    your bullet points, using , , , brand names.
    Dont just tell your reader what you did but
    also tell them how you did it and what the
    RESULTS were.

  • Make sure that there is a Fit Piece for
    what you
  • put in this area. If it doesnt somehow
  • you may want to leave it out.

Resume Section V
  • Personal
  • Personal
  • Not too PERSONAL!!!, hobbies,
    accomplishments that might be unique etc. that
    might help you create an emotional hook etc!

Student Resume Exercise
  • Take a copy of your resume and turn it over.
  • Now, pretend that youre writing 6 to 8 key
    requirements (bullet points) that youre
    relatively sure your Dream Job is going to
    require. Job Description Points!
  • Allow 2 minutes to complete before next slide

Student Resume Exercise
  • Without turning your resume over, pass it to your
    right so you have someone elses resume other
    than your own.
  • Read the Position Qualifications carefully and
    try and remember what youre going to be looking
    for in the resume. Once we begin reviewing the
    resume, you may turn the resume over from time to
    time to check the qualifications against the
    resume content.
  • When I say go, for the next 30 seconds I want you
    to turn over the resume and begin reviewing it as
    I discussed and use your pen or pencil to put a
    check mark beside all the points in the resume
    that relate directly to the list of
    qualifications. 30 Seconds GO!

Student Resume Exercise
  • Questions
  • How many people easily found 2 or 3 of the key
    requirements? 4 or more? Anyone find all of
  • Where were they located on the page? Top, Middle
    or Bottom.
  • Did you have to sift through a lot of info to
    find the Key Info you were looking for?
  • Pass resumes back to their owners.

From General Resume to Strategic Resume!
  • How can we develop a morestrategic resume ?

Strategic Resume Development
  • The Process
  • Review all research materials and define the 6-8
    key skills your target opportunity requires.
  • Mental Gymnastics!
  • Whos Perspective? Hind sight is 20/20
  • Lay out the format sections for your resume (5

Sample Resume Review
  • Overhead Projection if available.(Preview and
    discuss my sample resume)

Key Resume Take Aways
  • People spend very little time when initially
    screening a resume? (Seconds not minutes!) Help
    them see the fit!
  • Put your resume together from your readers
    perspective, not yours!
  • Try and keep it to a single page. (You can have
    an expanded version for future contact or when
    you actually get into the interview) Target

Key Resume Take Aways
  • Look for ways to differentiate yourself and
    demonstrate your skills and abilities, not just
    talk about them, i.e., put together a Position
    Requirements Professional Skills Analysis sheet
    using PowerPoint or Excel Actions Speak Louder
    Than Words!
  • Always look for ways to quantify and qualify,
    Details Credibility!

Key Resume Take Aways
  • Try not to sell the same skill in multiple bullet
    points, it will only dilute your message and
    potentially confuse your reader. Less is More!

    more to uncover!

    . Build Rapport

Sample Case Question
  • French Fry Vending Machines?(Interactive Class
    Activity, Read andquickly work through the
    sample case)

SAC Case Framework
  • Strategic Approach to Case(The SAC Model)
  • Isolate all the facts and questions to be
    answered, each on a separate line.
  • Restate facts and questions to client to
    confirm accuracy and get buy in.
  • Go to fact 1 and begin asking probing questions
    to gain insight and understanding of each fact.
  • Work through each fact in order. (Do not skip
    facts, do not plug in frameworks etc. to early)
  • Working through facts will lead you back down
    your list to the question or questions to be

SAC Case Framework
  • If you see a classic framework that fits use it,
    however they are most likely looking for
    original work so dont feel like you have to
    use the 4Ps, 4Cs, S.W.O.T., Value Chain
    Analysis, Cost Revenue Analysis etc
  • Depending on the complexity of the case and the
    amount of time you have its often best to work
    from macro to the micro and Keep it simple!
  • Answer the questions and then summarize and if
    there is more time you can suggest other
    potential components to consider, or close the

Case Interview Tips
  • Dont be thrown by the interviewers questions or
    lack of providing answers. Realize that there are
    numerous good approaches and answers. The
    interviewer just wants to see how you process
    information, deliver solutions and handle stress.
  • Be concise. If asked for the top two issues,
    confine your response to two items only. Avoid
    going into too much detail. The more explicit
    your thinking, the better.
  • Provide logical back-up for your answers. Be
    sure to explain what case facts led you to a
    conclusion, and how you reasoned from those facts
    to your conclusion.

Case Interview Tips (cont.)
  • Dont be afraid to ask clarifying questions. If
    you dont understand the case facts, you will
    find it difficult to ace the interview.
  • Remember common sense goes a long way. And
    finally, try to relax in the process and project
    a sense of confidence, but not cockiness.
  • If the interviewer wont or give answers to your
    questions then you have to make assumptions. Be
    sure to make your assumptions know and keep it
  • Use pen and paper if you wantA picture is worth
    a thousand words.

Self Directed Search
  • The key is NETWORKING!
  • Planning the work as if it were a project, using
    your project management skills, organizing the
    info in a contact management database etc., and
    planning the work and working the plan.
  • 2 keys to Success
