not comprehensive by any means here are but a few ideas :
as full a continuum as possible when covering your chronology
of work history (not necessarily a 'chronological resume')
Possible indicating: reasons for lapses in time, and/or if
any expected term of employ had been fulfilled if this is so.
Transitions -- from one job type to the next. If
not striking too logical of a progression, there are ways of implying
Contact details -- be sure to provide a reliable
contact. Doubly so if if you are among one of the countless workers
whose projects involve constant travel.
While obvious to many,
be prepared beforehand for the event where your resume may be held
on reserve, especially if the reciieint company happens to be one
of the highest rated companies you might ever choose to work for,
you are after one of their current new hire positions but too
for future potential positions -- consider enlisting the service
answering firm if you are in
might be expecting to relocate. No job candidate would like
to loose chances at a position simply due the hiring party receiving
a changed phone number or a bounced email. - Choose
an email address you can live with over a period of time.
What drives you as a professional. If in management,
the management style you employ, although rarely seen on resumes
-- this could
serve to indicate
you may assimilate and perform within an organization and its operating
philosolphies. If in answer to the smaller or mid
sized contractor or company, accomodating higher degrees of flexibilty.
Especially if upward mobility within a same company is desired.
References - many job seekers utilize resumes that list
references each's contact details. Most employers assume this
as being provided later in the process, but of course, it is always
at the option of the job seeker. With convenience as the main advantage,
the major disadvantage is not always having the option of contacting
your references personally with a heads-up with specifics before
they are contacted. Also, if waiting to supply references nearer
the interview stage, not only is the prospect of overuse and unnessary
repeated contacts prevented out of courtesy, the most relevant/beneficial
be selected from a pool of individuals
