Do you have a branding statement on your CV in English?
You can always make improvements to your resumé (or CV…) in English.
It seems it’s never perfect. (In fact, it’s a bit like creating a website—I’m always looking for little changes to improve mine, and I’m open to suggestions 😉
After watching the video “Errors To Avoid On Your American Resumé”, Speak English Ambassador Marc asked me to create a video on branding statements to include at the beginning of your resumé.
I love getting suggestions and requests from the community! So here’s your lesson on how to create a branding statement on your CV in English.
A good branding statement gets the recruiter’s attention
This is a very important subject because the quality of your branding statement influences how much time the recruiter spends looking at your CV.
It’s a little like those short descriptions on the back of a book. In this case, the book is you!
If the recruiter likes what they read, they’re more likely to call you for an interview.
And that’s what we want!
You want the recruiter to spend time with your CV, to consider your application, to call you for an interview.
They’ll call you because they want to know more about you. You might be the perfect person for the job, because your resumé is so good. Your branding statement is the first part of a good resumé.
You want to be sure your resumé stands out, but maybe you don’t know how to take it from “good” to “wow!”.
After today’s episode, you’ll know the secret!
And if you want more examples first, the article “How to Write an Impressive Objective Statement for Your Résumé” has plenty. (Also, notice how they write “résumé”, I write “resumé”, and on the web, you’ll often see “resume”—We Americans have no idea how accents work 🙂
