Recently I was discussing tricks to getting your resume noticed at Starbucks
with a professional resume writer. She was indeed a humorous typesetter, editor,
writer type with a new wave attitude and spiritual displacement. What a kick she
was, we were having a good old time and I stated I had written just a few
article on resume writing and she said; You should try actually writing them, he
We got really into the subject and she told me one of her coolest tricks to
resume writing and she said it only worked with creative type jobs, such as
advertising design, graphic design and things like that. She told me she used it
once to get a great job. I said; oh really, because I feel another article on
resumes coming on!
She indicated that she use to put paragraphs upside down or occasionally use
a word in French, Italian, Chinese with symbols or German in her resume.
Interesting I though and I could see where that would not fly with a corporate
manager type job, but could work well with intellectual pursuits or creative
category jobs. She said; Yep!
In fact this kind of makes sense if you are thinking of Tips or Tricks to
Getting Your Resume Noticed. Of course this only works in the right setting, but
it will get your resume noticed and that means you might get a personal
interview because they want to meet the person who wrote that resume. So, maybe
this could be your foot in the door?
