    Quotes and Other Facts

    Post  Tiffany Tarpein on Fri Feb 19, 2010 9:27 pm

    Few (if any) resumes use quotes.
    As mentioned previously, this powerful technique is one of the reasons all resumes are guaranteed to produce results. Why?

    1.- Quotes do more than just prove your claims. They make employers curious about you. Which makes them more likely to call and find out more. And this is what resume writing is all about!
    For ideas on using quotes, see our resume templates.

    2.- You may not be able to find written quotes. That’s OK. Try to recall good things that managers/clients have said about you.
    As long as they really said it, you can use these indirect quotes in the resume.

    Example indirect quote:

    Cited by supervisor for problem-solving skills and ability to train staff.

    If space allows, you can include an Other Facts section to combine good things about you that don’t fit in other parts of the resume.
    We recommend you put this section last, to finish the resume with a bang.
    Follow this format:


    OTHER FACTS
