What is a STAR resume? It is a professional resume that highlights your greatest accomplishments; an impressive document that will influence the decision maker within a matter of seconds to call you for a job interview.
As with the brightest star, it will be a STAR resume that is noticed and will stand out from all the rest. Descriptions of positions held that consist of a general list of responsibilities is simply a waste of space. Everyone is faced with a long list of responsibilities but what we are responsible for and what we actually accomplish are two very different issues. So too, is what will have a positive influence on the decision maker and what will not.
Your greatest accomplishments for each position held must be clearly relayed and quantifiable. The breakdown of each success by situation, task, action and result will ensure any HR professional or recruiter recognizes the potential in you to succeed in the position they are seeking to fill.
