Here’s a link to a google hangout from a few recruiters from google about how to prepare your resume. Both for technical and non-technical jobs.
The emphasis I hear from all of the advice is not about the resume itself, but rather about the word active. Active in looking for problems and then solving them, active in identifying a need for change and driving change for the better. A resume can have a lot of job positions and titles and an explanation of what these titles are and mean. But great companies hire great people, but what do they mean by great people? People that are visionaries, passionate, and see that the tools and information they have learned in schools and in life can make a difference in this world.
Taking that and comparing it with my life, I see this huge gap. Relatively speaking, I may be moving, but compared to the great people I see and hear about, I’m snailing along. But mostly because there’s a lack of faith, motivation, love, vision, and passion. And so I retreat my neck into my shell.
It reminds me of the parable of the talents. That one man who in fear and lack of faith in His master, laid down his talents and buried them. I wonder what he was doing in the meantime. Probably living a passive life of “dealing” with what is thrown at him rather than actively making a difference with what is being thrown at him. Maybe by picking it up in trust, that’s where life and life abundant lies. If life throws lemon at you, make lemon juice, so the saying goes.
The resume will come. The change, again, starts in the heart. Choice, is where our freedom lies.
