Make your resume a customer experience

We usually write a resume that makes us feel good. Unfortunately we are not the target audience. Asking our business associates for feedback may make us uncomfortable, but it is vital. The more like our targeted hiring managers they are, the better. 

Career Marketing Coach: A Little Resume Tough Love, 2015-Mar-25 by Debra Rosenfeld

…because a resume is a very personal document, and it feels uncomfortable to have qualified people tell you that you need to change your very personal document. It feels much less threatening to ask for advice from people who are not qualified to give it.

So, if you’re not getting interviews, I encourage you to have your resume reviewed by people who are qualified to give you valuable feedback:

* Direct hiring managers in the field in which you work
* Your previous managers
* Senior colleagues or other managers with whom you worked
