How to Make Your Resume Sound Human

  1. How to Make Your Resume Sound Human
  2. The Resume Problem Most of us have been taught to write a resume in a horrible style we call Corporate Zombie Speak. Who talks like that? “Results-oriented professional with a bottom-line orientation.” What does it mean? We all sound like robots when we describe ourselves that way.
  3. You are way cooler than that!
  4. Everything about you is unique: • No one else has your story - or ever will • No one has the exact mix of talents you have • No one else has your personality • You are one of a kind!
  5. Why not show more of your human side in your resume?
  6. It isn’t hard to make your resume sound human Start by telling your story to someone, or writing it down. You’ll incorporate your life and career story into your Human-Voiced Resume™!
  7. Go through your resume with a red pen and get rid of all the Corporate Zombie Speak language: Results-oriented professional Motivated self-starter Works well with all levels of staff Meets or exceeds expectations Skilled at managing cross-functional teams Seasoned Business Professional These are a few examples. There are lots more!
  8. What will you put into your resume in place of the zombie words you took out? Take a look at Jane Banks’ BEFORE and AFTER resumes on the next two pages. Jane’s BEFORE resume makes her sound like any battle drone. The language puts a reader to sleep. None of Jane’s sparkling personality comes through! Jane’s AFTER resume is a Human-Voiced Resume™. Notice how Jane seems to be a real person now! Jane comes alive on the page. You can write your own Human-Voiced Resume™ that lets a person reading your resume – your hiring manager, that is – know you’re human (and a smart, funny and awesome human, at that)!

Here is the top section of Jane’s Human-Voiced Resume™ Jane Elizabeth Banks London, Colorado (123) 234-3456 jane.elizabeth.banks@gmail.com http://www.linkedin.com/janeelizbanks Operations Manager I’ve been managing back-end operations for retail chains since I graduated from college in 2000.
