Yes, your resume is all about you, but the purpose is to sell yourself in a way that shows the interviewer/organization that it is all about them and that you will be a valuable asset to them. When perusing your resume or during an interview, there is one important question on their mind, “Is this the person who can solve my problems?”
Your resume should reflect how you have solved problems for others. Focus on your accomplishments, providing details on how you improved sales or reduced costs or created an innovative public relations campaign for your previous employer. If you have succeeded in presenting an enticing resume, you will get the job interview. And again, you will have the opportunity to reiterate your ability to help “them”!
Your resume is all about “you” but you need to convince the potential employer that it is all about what you can do for “them”!
