A resume that stands out has to be backed by a personality that stands out. There’s a reason a company will choose your resume from the pile: you. The goal is to show how you are uniquely equipped for the role you’re applying for.
A communication strategy consultant, Nicole Williams said, “Create an authentic, yet powerful personal statement.”
If you’re struggling to do this, think of your personal statement like a sales pitch, or better yet, an elevator pitch. She gives an example of what this might look like on your resume:
“I’m an energetic, self-motivated professional [with] exceptional writing and interpersonal communication skills, with the entrepreneurial stamina and wisdom to drive lucrative business, growth and results.”
