Jumping To Do Seo/web Consulting For Corporate
Posted 10 January 2005 - 05:45 PM
Ironically, they haven't asked for a resume until now - and what is even more ironic is I don't have one. So I'm going to put it together over the next few days and I'd like to make a good impression. any tips on making the resume pop? or what to focus on related to web consulting / seo / project management in the resume? I'm pretty young and don't have a ton of work experience to fill up the page, although I have some. (the young part is actually a good selling point as the corp is looking to get younger and more creative etc.) so what do you think the main selling point is? knowledge base?
any help is appreciated

I read somewhere some time, or maybe I heard it in a college class a few years ago about supplying a reading list related to the industry? does anyone think this is a good idea...on one hand if I was looking at a resume that had one I might think it was nice and it would help solidify their knowledge base in my mind, but on the other hand I might think, "yeah - so what?"

Try to put concrete statistics in your resume. For instance, "Increased amount of top 10 search rankings by 300% in 4 month period." They will want to see that you don't just talk a good game, but have a track record. Perhaps even include that url for the most recent website that you optimized so they can see your work first hand.
In addition to that, you will definitely want to show your project management skills so that they will see that you can multitask and get things done. They will want to see that you are self-motivated, organized, and results driven.

Nate, I don't think it would hurt ya to say that you're an active member of the High Rankings SEO forum.

That thought crossed my mind too...I'm planning on working that in somewhere too bad I'm not a moderator that probably would lock up the job on the spot...
of course, if they were extremely smart they would probably just become members themselves and take what they learn here...then they wouldn't need to hire me
