Career Changing Resume – Prepare to Answer Questions

Are you prepared to answer questions about your resume?

Someone who is interested in you will look at your resume carefully and might see something that puzzles them and ask you about it. By preparing to answer potential questions about your resume, you will be in a better position to give a proper answer. To prepare, you might ask someone you respect to take a critical look at your resume.

Potential questions might cover:

  1. Why you left one employer and joined the other.
  2. Gaps, either after college or between your jobs. Good interviewers will wonder why and probe.
  3. Mistakes you may have made. Mentioning these shows honesty, maturity, and potential for growth.

By addressing potential questions ahead of time, you will be more self-confident and come across better. It’s always best to prepare and think about questions about your resume so you can answer them confidently, clearing up any uncertainty to any recruiter.

These ideas are from the book I wrote, CAREER CHANGE GUIDE, to help you find your best path.
