Resume Tip Nine – Express What You Know and Who You Know

Obviously your resume needs to highlight the your breadth of knowledge (in relation to the job being advertised). Too much depth can become boring, you can give expanded information if requested at the interview stage. Just as importantly you need to show who you know. If you have reported to, or worked in project teams with senior executives such as a “vice president”, “director” or “department manager” list it in your resume. Having worked with to someone considered ‘important’ could help to convince the reader to determine that you are also ‘important’.
