    Resume Worthy

    Patrick McCormick

      Most of us have resumes and social media profiles such as LinkedIn to communicate our professional experiences, qualifications and accomplishments.

       

      A résumé or resume is a document used by a person to present their backgrounds and skills. Résumés can be used for a variety of reasons, but most often they are used to secure new employment. A typical résumé contains a "summary" of relevant job experience and education, as its French origin implies. Wikipedia

       

      It is important to give a holistic view of what each of us brings to the table. For starters it is important to include “table stakes” – the basic requirements for a potential job. However these are just table stakes and too many people stop there. You need to differentiate yourself. You need to demonstrate that you are willing to go the extra mile. You need to demonstrate that you can get things done and be a leader.

       

      Being a TUG Leader or TUG Leadership Team member is a great way to differentiate yourself. Think about what percentage of the 17,000 people at TC18 can say differentiate themselves in this way. Here's a look at them from our TC18 Community Party (thanks - Jordan Scott, Amanda Boyle, Patrick A Van Der Hyde, Marissa Michelotti & team):

      Now is a good time to take a few minutes to update your resume and social media profiles if you don’t already include this (and encourage your leadership team members to do the same). Below is an excerpt from Sarah Weber's LinkedIn profile:
