Hi! My name is Tina Buechler from Business Growth Training, and I’m here today on behalf of In this clip, I want to talk about developing product knowledge as part of creating your resume. First thing you’re going to do is set your goal. The next thing you want to do is look at what are your skills, your accomplishments, your personal qualities, your self-management skills, all of the information about you, all the knowledge about you that will market you to your goal. When we create our resume, it is a marketing tool, and the purpose of that marketing tool is to make an employer want to call us in for an interview. You need to have a really good comprehensive knowledge about what you have to offer, so you can put that information in the resume as is markets your goal. Things that you want to consider are: First of all, what have you done? What are your skills? What’s your experience, your education, and your qualifications as it applies to your job goal. Second of all, how well have you performed? What are your accomplishments, your achieved results, your reputation as it applies to your job goal? Thirdly, what are your personal characteristics, your personal qualities, your ability to work with others, and your self-management skills? Again, all of these skills as they apply to your job goal. Lastly, what are your needs, goals, values, and priorities? Now, your needs, goals, values, and priorities aren’t included on your resume. They’re a fundamental part of developing product knowledge and knowing what it is what you’re looking for. What your needs, goals, values, and priorities help you decide is what to include and what not to include in your resume. Once you have really developed comprehensive knowledge about yourself in these areas, you can actually start writing your resume. So, first your job goal; second of all, you need to know what you have to offer and develop comprehensive product knowledge.
