How to Write a Resume Directory Description
It is important for you to realize that when you list your resume in our directory the description you present can make the difference between your resume being viewed or passed over. When you write your directory description don't treat it as an arbitrary description designed for your own internal uses. If you do intend to list your resume in the directory the description will be seen by all who browse or search the directory.

Examples of poorly written directory descriptions:
  1. Seeking a long-term career in the Administrative field.
  2. Fined a carrier I will love and excel at.
  3. College student seeking full-time work.
  4. Looking for full or part-time positions.
  5. My objective is to work hard and show that I am responsible.

What is wrong? How can I fix it?

The problem with most of the descriptions above is that they don't convey how the employer is going to be benefited. Most of the descriptions above are what the employee wants, unfortunately for the most part the employer is mainly interested in serving their own needs.

Spelling and grammar are another problem as shown in example numbers two and four. A description written in an illiterate manner will be quickly dismissed. You will appear to be uneducated and not up to the task. Even if you do have a limited education you don't need to broadcast that fact in your description, first impressions are important.

Example number five discusses hard work and being responsible, but they are just subjective words that anyone can say. If you took a survey you would find that almost everyone feels they are a hard worker and responsible. Specific examples should be given of how you will benefit the employer.

Before you begin your writing think about it from the employers perspective, if the shoe was on the other foot what would you like to see in a description when searching for candidates for a job?

Be specific about your skills and qualifications then sum it all up into a single sentence so when they scan the directory they can quickly find what they need. If they don't find what they are looking for from you there are so many other people out there who can supply the skills for which they are looking.

New features are always added so check back often.
