The ‘In-Courage’ Newsletter — Two Minute / Two Pages Resumes: How to Package Yourself
Discover the key to not only opening the door, but getting the interview. Learn how to market and sell yourself. Learn how to communicate more effectively.
The neat thing about this is: The presentation will tell you what the finished resume will need to have, and how to get there, but to get there, you may learn more about you than you thought you knew.
I used to scoff about people having to “find themselves”. But then, I used to do a lot of silly things. But “finding yourself” is a BIGGIE, and putting together a cogent representation of yourself will really teach you come things.
Finding Your Focus
This process will, probably, not be over in a just the week between last week and this week. Finding Your Focus is not only important to do now, but equally important to revisit from time to time.

NEXT WEEK: The ‘In Courage’ Newsletter: “Communication Connection: How to Write Right”
Learn how to communicate more effectively. Improve your written skills to get in the door and stay in the game.
“For if the bugle produces an indistinct sound, who will prepare himself for battle?”
(1 Corinthians 14:8)
Once you know what you can do, you want to make sure that you communicate it in a way that helps you.
For those of us who have not had to wage a coordinated battle using Iron Age technology (a bugle), think of this as an example: What if you had a job offer letter with only one out of every 4 characters visible.
That last sentence would look like this: “Fte wh w oieaeiI ho nfci eio eycaril”
You, as a job seeker, want to make sure that the *way* you communicate in writing helps — and does not hurt — the wonderful *what* that you are communicating. This week is huge in that very arena!
On a personal note:
I must confess that this is one of my toughest areas. There is a proverb, which says,
“He cuts off his own feet and drinks violence
“Who sends a message by the hand of a fool.”
If my writing is sloppy or ill-considered, it’s as if I took my reputation, entrusted it to some idiot, and sent him ahead of me to introduce me. Your written things may be the first impression of you that an employer sees.
Here is something else, too: Your future employer needs someone who can communicate well, even if in just a note or an email. You don’t want to be a foolish messenger!
But there is another proverb,
“Like the cold of snow in the time of harvest
“Is a faithful messenger to those who send him,
“For he refreshes the soul of his masters. “
You want to be this person! Please join us, and learn how to make your words your own faithful messengers!
