Career Re-Entry Resume Tips

As you continue to strategize for an effective job search strategy to reenter the workplace, you should consider seriously what you want employers to know and think about you. Your resume and job interview are two good places where you get the chance to show a company why they cannot afford NOT to hire you.

Keep these tips in mind as you write your career reentry resume and prepare for job interviews:

1. Be cheerful and high energy in your in-person or telephone job interviews
2. Talk about the benefits of your experience, your professional maturity and the relevant expertise you offer
3. Make sure your resume content is current and include relevant information only
4. Speak to the long term value you can bring to the company
5. Share stories in the job interview about outstanding outcomes in prior assignments
6. Look at the benefits of a functional resume
7. A cover letter will focus your background on relevant, recent experiences
8. Talk about your ability to collaborate and work with diverse folks from Baby Boomers to Millennials.
