How to make your resume really stand out from the rest

Share

I have something really important to share with you today. It can be as important as the difference between getting your job or not.

The number one complaint that I hear a lot from people who are doing job interviewing and hiring is simply that they have just too much to do.

They are swamped with resumes piling up on their desks. Why should I care you might ask? Well,because most of the time those are the people that will read your resume. And even make some decisions about its future.

So you want to make sure that when they see your resume they want to immediately pick you instead of someone else.

But, how can you do that?

Most people try to create this impressive resume. So they write a long and detailed story about their work experience and all the projects they’ve done and skill they have.

Remember when I was talking about people who might read your resume?

They usually have lots of them to go through. So you can almost be sure that your detailed resume won’t be read. It will be “scanned”.

This kind of super detailed resume is important to have. But the version that you want send out is totally different.
So most people when they learn that they try to cut their resumes to one or two pages.

But this can be a mistake too, because length in itself is not that important.

You can have pretty short,but also pretty bad resume.It’s about something totally different.

Your resume has to match as much as possible the job position you’re going after. So when someone that knows what a position is about will look at it and there will be no doubt that you’re the one.

So it’s not about length of your resume, it’s about making it clear that you’re the best person for this position,no one else. It’s about demonstrating that you can do the job well. That you can get them result they want.

Making your resume strong requires quite a lot of work and research and most people are not willing to do that to get a job they really want. So if you do just that you’re well ahead of everyone else.

All GIS begins with data,so how you can learn to control it?

Share

Data is in the center of every GIS system, so when you know how to control it it’s like having GIS super powers. Let’s see what does that actually mean.

What’s control anyway?

First, let’s clarify what does it mean to have control over data. In think that in the context of GIS it means that you have ability to:

  1. access it, wherever it is located
  2. filter it, get exactly what you need
  3. change it, mold it as you wish
  4. show it, present it in a way that it will be useful and understood

Notice that no matter if you make a map for a local county or create a cool one for New York Times you have to go through all four steps.

The specific tools might change,but I don’t think that this model will change that much over time. You can see that there are some tools that simplify some steps or merge them (like some web apps).To stay in control we have to keep them in mind.

If you can do all four you have some basic control. You can gain more control by learning at least one different way to do any of them.

It’s even better if you can learn a way to do it faster or better (whatever the specific definition might be)

Why bother?

Well, because things are changing.Sometimes faster and sometimes slower.

And if you know what gives you more control you can prepare yourself for a change.

Loosing control sucks.

So, how to keep it?

Have your eyes and ears open. Focus. Learn at least one different way of doing each step every two months. Try new things. Experiment.

But I…

I know.You don’t have time or maybe you don’t think that some tools are for you. Well, keep it small and simple. Get into habit of learning things. After a while it will be easier to just pick something up and play with it.

The Ultimate Control is…

when you realize that it’s all within your reach. It might take some time,but it’s doable. It’s being flexible when looking at problems. Looking at “new” as opportunity not a threat.
