About This Class

A resume is the most important document in our lives. It is the only living document that is constantly being updated, and most importantly, it represents you and your brand when you’re not there. Having a beautiful, well-formatted, and thoughtful resume is the difference between getting an interview for your dream job and simply getting ignored.

In this class, I’ll take you through an entire resume building process and help you build your own world-class resume. We will go deep into (1) the Best Resume Template that works and has been successful for thousands of other students and young professionals breaking into highly competitive fields, (2) Thoughtful Content and how to properly distill your professional, education, and extracurricular experiences into well-crafted bullets, and (3) various Strategies and Tactics related to the do’s and don’ts of resume writing to help you avoid major pitfalls and navigate previous bottlenecks in your career, such as, having a low GPA, coming from a non-target background, or simply not having enough relevant experience.

When I was in business school, I was in the same position as you, and was struggling with securing even a single interview. But then, I discovered the art of resume writing and perfected it to help me land interviews across all the top firms I was passionate about and it completely changed the trajectory of my career and life. I was able to not only get hired at Morgan Stanley, but I joined their top Investment Banking team in Menlo Park, California. Then, using the same resume template and strategies, I got an interview at Google and joined their exclusive late-stage investment team called CapitalG. Finally, I used the same resume again and rejoined Morgan Stanley as an Associate in Investment Banking and was promoted to Vice President shortly after.

Not only have I used this template for my own career, but I have taught it to over 20,000 students and young professionals globally and at leading universities such as Harvard and Stanford. So, whether you’re an aspiring student applying for your first job, or a seasoned professional rising in your career and looking to supercharge your resume, this is the course for you.

It is the only living document, one that is constantly being a but most importantly, it's a document, their reps since you and your brand when you're not so having a beautiful, well formatted and thoughtful resume is the difference maker in getting an interview and an offer from your dream job or simply getting Hi, my name is sure done this any and I'm a former vice president in investment banking and Morgan Stanley and Pride to that. I was at Google's laced agent cold cabbage. I learned the art of resume writing, and it completely changed the trajectory of my career. I went from getting cereal interviews to getting interviews across all the top firms in the industries I was super passionate about, and this included getting interviews and an offer from Morgan Stanley in their top invest, then from Google and joining Capital G, which is that late stage investment arm and then again getting rehired and Mormon sailing for the second time in investment banking, have accumulated all these lessons and over the last 10 years have taught and mentored over 20,000 students and young professionals exactly how to break into these competitive feels and get closer to their dream job. I taught my forces globally from San Francisco to New York, London, Hong Kong, Singapore and many other places and a leading universe, Harbor and Stanford. Plus, I was invited twice to speak at Ted X on similar topics, and you can find some of those on YouTube is well. Students who have taken my courses have broken into the top investment banking firms such as Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and they also broke into the top management, consulting and accounting firms such as McKinsey and PWC. Similarly, if you're just getting breaking too competitive world of high tech companies and startups and my students have broken into companies like Google, I spoke to name a few. So to that end, this course gonna teach you three things. Number one, the best resume template that works.

Thank you for watching this. And I really hope I can be helpful in getting you closer to your dream job. 2. How are Resumes Reviewed: before we get deep into how a reservation before Matt it will kind of content should be in it. We should have to pause and think about how is a resident action review? I remember having a lesson Bangor most of my career, and through that time I've seen thousands of resumes, and I've seen a lot of other people review thousands of breast. On top of that, Obviously, I've taught many, many, many students just like yourself. Seen a resume to in mind. And I'll tell you this, the way people think. A Resumes review It's not true. A lot of people think restaurants reviewed over like ours. Someone's gonna get a document they're gonna read word by word, line by line. Really think about this person and spend 30 minutes arm or thinking about that candidate. That's not true. That's not how a resident reviewed a resume. Generally speaking of reviewed within five seconds, that's it. That's all the time. You have to impress that person who is reviewing your wrist. Now what has impressed me? Remember, the goal of the resume is not to get you the job, the gold. The resume is to represent you and get you the interview. And these folks were reviewing your resume and kind of filtering through all of these thousands of candidates that are on their desks. They have to go through all of these residents pretty quickly. They can't spend 30 minutes on each. So what they have to do is quickly make a decision. Hey, is this person worth bringing in for a chat? So remember, five seconds all you have. So not only do we have to make great content and put great content within it, and I'll teach you that, but more importantly, me to have an amazing for me a four month that looks great, Remember? Like I said, recruiting is just like dating and dating. Looks matter. Unfortunately, in the world of recruiting, your resume, our your looks. So we're gonna make sure that looks perfect and gets you closer to your next job. 3. General Format: Like I said before, A resume is the most born doctor in your life, and you only have less than 56 to impress someone. So the main part where I think you forget about it, they use something like, you know, really poor format from the Internet, or someone who their career counselor sent to them or their friend has said It's tend to them and it just doesn't work today, I would actually teach you the best format. Remember this form? I just didn't show up to me in a dream like I didn't wake up one day. Does God? That was a great format, actually. Use that for all my resume. No, it didn't happen like that. Remember? I was just like yourself, you know, a few years ago, and for me, I had never with a lot of people and learn from them, and they saw my resume, and they helped me improve it. My resume originally was a four page long resident. Yes, four pages long. That's that. That's wrong. We don't need to do that, Said he was learned from all these people, and I put that advice into this format. Some of you might say and see. It would be like, Oh, this president for my just looks like my former country. Remember, there's a lot of details within this format that I want you to notice. And I'll mention them to you because when someone on the other side isn't reviewing this resident your resume, they will notice those little mistakes, those little errors that don't fit with how someone who shouldn't know where documents really, really well or these kind of being a work process Documents really, really well, especially the style of these big firms like McKinsey, Goldman, Sachs and one. They're gonna notice that. So I want to make sure you don't make that mistake, even though your format may look kind of similar to my But I get into you, it isn't now. Format is very important. We know that, and I know content is important, too, but we'll get to that little later for my first thing. We're gonna fix this episode of this lesson. I'm talking detail about what kind of general formatting rules you should know. Rule number one. Before you build a resume, I want you to go home wherever you are and delete your old residence. If you're old resident was working, you wouldn't be sitting in this class right now. So I want you to do me a favor and do yourself a favor. Take that old resident just deleted and robbery. You don't need any information from it. Think about it this way. The most important things that you've done in your life or here and here. You know, it writes like going on a date. You don't take your resident with you to tell your partner. Hey, let me tell you past, when they ask you, you know the highlights of your life please delete that old resume. All that information is Dale. You don't need to use it. It doesn't work. We're gonna build it from scratch. And that's the main goal. If you're serious about getting your dream job, let's start from scratch and let's get it. Rouleau too. I want your resident one page. That's a one page long. I don't care if you have done five PGS. Have you worked 20 years or you are in the next president? United States doesn't matter who you are or how little or how much of experience you have it has to remember when show up to these recruiters desks or with these, you know, senior bankers or senior consultants or senior campaign whoever for being your resume to get a book. And in that book, every candidate's allowed only one section, which is one pain. And if you take more than one page, you're automatically removed from the candidate Seo from that program. So I don't want you guys to face that. I want you guys to make sure that you fit it. And remember, it's a skill you can always write a 10 page long resident. But that's not an art. That's not a skill. Getting it all condensed in a concise, beautifully formatted one page document that quest, skill. And these banks and these consulting terms accounting firms, that's what they're looking for. Can this candidate actually represent themselves in this beautiful document in one page? So thats the goal. Get it to be one page next up thought that is a lot of fonts available and pages or Mike's upward or whatever used. I would recommend you use myself word or pages. This is too soft that technical complexity to build a beautiful document. You'll see when I show you the real doctor in a bit, I thought that I want you guys to use or to funds one is times new Roman or Ariel. Now these thoughts I know are old and you know they're more new or fonts that look kind of more fancy and more more millenia. Lexus SE like some of the cool consumer brands we see on the Internet. But remember, the gold here is to look. Ask them where it's possible to the industry that your joint and the industries like, you know, investing banking, accounting, consulting. They still use old school professional fost like times, New Roman and area, and your documents should look past. It was possible to their current doctor. That's why Font is gonna be other times you, Roman or it's gonna be Ariel. Now, phone color can't be anything but black. Your entire document has to be black font. Not great, not blue. Not paint, not yellow. None of that black fought. All right, let's keep it standardized so that it fits the industry you're getting into. And there's no color in any of these industries. The state to black want on white piece of paper font size, and that's an important one. Remember, there's gonna be a couple of fun size is that we're gonna be using in the resume, but the key font size that I want you guys to use and always use in all of your document from now, not just your resume is font size 10. Font size 10 is the business standard size of font, and it's used across the board. In every geography. You should actually use it. It's the most legend bowl. Most people can read it, and it looks nice. It looks very nice on piece of paper. I remember when you think about great brand in the world like Apple, the reason their stuff looks good because they have basically perfected some of these things. Some of these things that are so deep that a human can really notice it, but it just works. Font size 10 does something like, so your resume should be in font size. 10. Most of the document most detect a few things that will be slightly different, but main text cortex is fun sized next up, but the bullets your bullets should never have a period of the right. No periods at the end of the bullets. That's number one. Number two. When you have a bullet, maximum length of a bullet should not be more than two lines, right? Anything that's longer than two lines is too long of a bullet, and we'll get deeper into the bullets in a bid as well. But just make sure no bullets have a period at the end and noble longer than two. Finally, the entire document is reverse chronological order. So the most recent stuff shows up first, and then you go holder and over and over. So the highest stock highest piece of content in your resume is gonna be more recent than the old stuff. And then the old stuff. And in terms of you know, what's too old to put on a resident. Remember this a resident that's representing you, and not just any you you from today or recent you, right, because that's the most relevant experience. Anything that's older than five years or probably maximum 7 to 8 years is probably too old Now. I'm not saying if you're a seasoned professional, that's a different thing. We'll get deeper to that. Who's coming out of college or business school. The most recent experience, 5 to 7 years is relevant. Everything else we can leave. All right. Next. That would dig deep into a resume. We're gonna actually build it together. I'm gonna show you line by line. How to do it. Stick with me. Here we go deep into this beautiful piece of document and you crush it. 4. Header: welcome back. So it's time to build that awesome. So I would love to get to do is open up myself word if you're on a PC or pages using Mac and also the same time have a piece of paper buyer side with a pen because I'm gonna be going line by line, word by word and talking about a lot of strategies, a lot of tips and tricks, and I want you to take great notes. And right now, I don't want to build the reason I want to just absorb all the stuff that I'm teaching you . All right, so sit tight with building the perfect resume d best resume. So let's do this. No, right. Welcome to my resident format, and we're gonna dig deep in. So the first thing is, remember like like I mentioned before, a lot of you might be like, Oh, my God, this form, it just looks like mine. It doesn't. And I'll tell you why. Remember, there's a lot of these little tips and tricks that are actually very, very important to get him right. And if you make those little mistakes, that's an easy rejection. And remember, these are very, very competitive industries. And I want to make sure that you guys avoid getting into those mistakes and making those errors those unforced errors and avoiding them is very, very important. So I'm gonna go line by line, fought by font, you know, literally letter by letter to make sure you get this right. It wouldn't go deep into each section. It's an overview of this is you know, the top section is the header. This is the header section of the document. Then we have the education. Then we have experience right here. And then we have some other stuff in the late in the later sections. Now, remember, we can move some of these sections around. We'll get back to it in a second. But key part is starts with a header than some main content. And then the last pieces. Now start with the resume. Before we even put any text on this resume, I want to make sure that we set the real estate right. So real sure, right, Means is margins. Remember, this is a one page document and wanna make sure looks beautiful and big part of making anything look beautiful. I remember I told you guys, this recruiting is just like dating and in dating looks matter and recruiting your looks or your are your resume. So we want to make sure we get this done right. The first thing I want to do is go to documents. If you're on a Mac, which I am here, I go to document, I go to the bottom and a seat document margins. Doctrine margins basically allows me to set the spacing that's available to me on this piece of paper. So the left and right, I've said, as your 0.5 inches and 0.5 inches thes margins air basically whatever is dictating from the edge of the piece of paper to when the text starts. So this little area right here is what this margin is. Now. The reason for 0.5 inches on either side is a document is health. A piece of paper's held from the left and right, right, So someone's gonna put their thumb on the left, and it's not gonna cover the text if it's half an inch now for the top and bottom, I'm using 0.2 inches and 0.2 inches. Reason for that is, nobody holds a doctrine from the top and bottom, but again, it makes it look beautiful. It doesn't look like it's coming too close to the edge of the document, All right, now that we have the margins set up, let's go back into format here. And let's start with a piece of header that tough. The first thing, which is your name. So your names and my name is right Here it is. Let me just actually select is perfectly here, so it's sure John Hussaini, right? You guys can add me on linked in or find me on the Internet. But that's my name. And the format for this first line is bold. It's all uppercase, and it's fun. Size 12. So remember on that piece of paper that I told you to have on your side, please make make a note of this. The first line in the document is bold, all uppercase, and it's fun size 12 and that's your name now. A lot of people would they do is you know, they say, you know what? I want to stand out. I don't want to be just any sure John was any I want actually stand out. So I'm gonna actually, you know, increase this font and really, you know, make sure people know who I am, what I am. I'm a really cool shirt understanding. No, that's wrong. Nobody cares about your name. All right? So that's the big lesson I want everybody to understand. Here is a lot of times people think there's value in your name or in my name or anybody's name. It doesn't is just a night into fire. Your name could be dif e you know, skuh ski. Let's just say that could be your name, right? It doesn't have any value, but the problem is people think there's value there and they want to stand out. Don't. You're basically taking up too much space. And that space is not giving you anything in return. So do not do this. I'm just gonna bring it back to font size 12 which is perfect fun for you to have not remember. This is the only the line in the entire doctrine, which is fun size 12. All right, now, let's go to the next line. Next line is your identifier, which you know the way people can connect with you, and it includes a couple of things. It includes an address. It includes a phone number, and it includes an email address. Now, as you can see here, I've put them on either side. So there's an address on the left. There's an email Anderson the ride, the phone numbers in the middle and the whole line looks race symmetrical. Right? Looks beautiful. And that's the whole point. Getting the format done right so that it looks beautiful is very important. But remember, if something like, for example, your address and let's just focus on the address for a second is extending too long. Try to shorten it. So if you have long words like street making shorter but at the same time, remember, after says no value, Actually, especially in current times, Goldman Sachs McKinsey is not going to show up to your door and be like, Hey, Jenny, it's Goldman Sachs. You have an interview with us. It just doesn't happen. And if they do show up, run away from that company, that's that's weird. So don't put your address to be super super long, and if it is super long, try to shorten that if you can. If you can't shorten it, it's OK to kind of just commit some information, like I just removed Michael from it because nobody's gonna meal you anything. Once you do get the job and I hope you do get the job, let them know your real address and they'll meal you the documents there now the same time , you know what's important is I would recommend that your address should not take more than 1/3 of that line. So here you can see I'm basically around 1/3 of the page and I'm not taking any more space now. One final thing I just want to mention on the address is if you have a job that requires you to travel to that job every day, obviously you don't want to have put your address, which is too far away. So let's say your men just making an assumption here. Let's assume, for example, you live with your parents and parents live in the suburbs, and parents live in the suburbs, your two hours away from the from the actual job. What you don't want is you don't put any information on your document that self eliminates you. And that's the whole concept. Gonna be teaching throughout this piece of document that never self eliminate yourself by putting some information that someone else on the other side who's reading your resume is gonna then bucket you with. They're gonna put you in a little box and be like, Hey, you know what? This person's too far. This person is not smart because they have a low G p a. Or this person just hasn't gone the right skills because of X y Z reason. So I want to make sure we eliminate any of those unforced errors. And one of those unforced errors is putting in an address that is too far away. I'm not saying change the city If you don't even live in that city or near that city life, you live in Singapore and you say that you're living in New York. That's wrong. That's a lie. I don't do that. But if you let's say, living in New Jersey and it's two hours away suburban area, where it's hard to get a job in Manhattan, for example. Just put a Manhattan address for now so you don't get self eliminated. All right, moving on to the phone number. The phone number is the next most important piece of information on this document, and what you see here is I've used a simple format with dashes in the middle. But if you are an international student or you're someone who's applying internationally, make sure to put in your country code. So that's plus six five for Singapore, for example, plus eight five to four Hong Kong. Now, if you want to be consistent, you can also do plus one if you want to put it. And if you're applying for international job so they know you're in the US or Canada. But if you are in US and Canada and applying to jobs in US and Canada, you don't need to put the plus one all right. Moving on to the right side. The right side of the document has the most important information here. This is your email address. Now. A lot of people have email addresses that are G mail's outlooks. You know, different kinds, hot meals, Yahoo mail's whatever. But when you're applying for a job, remember, you want to make sure you build enough bonds with the person who is on the other side, and there's always a chance that someone on the other side of that document whose reading your document review in your document would look at your email address and may have gone to the same school, and that automatically puts you one edge one degree closer to them. So if you can, I would highly recommend you use your school email address. You know your undergrad email or grad school email address, because that automatically puts you one step one and you know inch closer to them. Now. On top of that, if let's just say you've gone to a Canadian school and the person interviewing you is also Canadian again, that can also help you. So these little things subliminally help people get a little bit closer to their interviewer and improve their chance of getting selected as someone they want to chat with . Because remember, they have been in your shoes and the reason you've connected with them? Just three email address. Let's just say and I'm not saying literally like emailing that, but just connecting to them by saying that, Hey, I've been I am where you were many, many years ago, it is a little thing that can actually work in your favor. Now, if you don't have a school email address or you graduated and it is a long time ago, just use a Gmail, but making sure it's professional, so make sure it's the first dot last for some, some combination of that that can help you. Now, the last pieces, the format of this entire line, this header line. Now remember, in this entire document, most of the text is gonna be like this. It's gonna be times new Roman. It's gonna be just font size 10. It's not gonna be bold. It's not gonna be a tallix. It's just regular font font size 10. That's the business font size that everybody uses. And I want you all to use the same fun. And when you're done, just make sure the phone numbers centered as much as possible under the name that the last piece of the header is this little spacer at the end Spacers air Very, very important because they evenly spaced as sections in your document and it makes the entire document look beautiful. Look, need a spacer is again font size 10 right and There's nothing in it. There's no bold. There's nothing else in. It is just there to give space to the document and make it look clean. And again. Just one final thing. The entire document that I'm building here is times new Roman font times New Roman, as you see here is the fine. All right, Next up wouldn't discuss education. 5. Education: all right, So it's time for education. Education is one of the most important sections. All of us probably have gone underground, are in done undergrad, or maybe going to grad school right now. And we can't just just write the name of the university energy. That's not enough anymore. We need to actually really explain all the amazing things that we've done. And how have we pushed? Yeah, show you that. All right. So welcome to education section before we started the education section. It's important to get ahead or done right so that there's always a section header For a lot of these major sections, education has one as well. Now, the main thing here is this is bold. This is upper case, and this is font size 11. Right, So you see over here, font size 11. That's important. I remember only the section headers, Air font, size 11. So if you see experience on the bottom here also font size 11 bold uppercase. Other than these section headers and your name, everything else in this document is font size 10. All right, so when you look at the actual content of this document like here, it's all fun Size 10. All right, So once we have the education label done, you can put a bottom border. You can get to the bottom border from here. So if you go to lay out and you go to borders and rules on the bottom, you can put one at the bottom, right? So again, a bottom border, you can also put it in my word And my word. Actually, the icon for bottom borders on the top and you can put a bottom border. Now, what it does is basically separates the section and makes it look beautiful. And that's the whole reason for having after the section header, we're gonna go into putting a spacer, and I'm gonna go back to format here and spacer again has to be fun sized tents. And make sure you have that. This is font size 10 and a space is just an empty line. There's nothing more to after that. We're gonna get into the actual content now. The first thing I'm gonna put is your most recent education. So most likely let's assume you're going to a university right now. I've put immunity trauma here, but I can also put in. Let's just say University of California com A Los Angeles, right? Let's just say U C L. A is one example. But here what you're doing is first, let's figure out the font. So this is upper case bold and font size 10. This is entirely uppercase. Bold font size 10. This is the name of the university, All right. Now, if you've gone to likes to say a business school, you can put the business school after a dash. So, for example, Anderson cool of match, right? So obviously, that's a pretty long name I would actually recommend if you were actually u C l A. I would just put you sell a Anderson School of Management. Anyways, this first part is your university name. And if you have a business school that is part of that, just put it after the dash in a short Met. For now, all right, on the right side is actually where the school or your university is located. So I put in the name of the city and after a comma, I've put in the state. Now, remember, this is just not bold, is not uppercase is just regular font size 10 fund the recent four. Putting it regular and not actually making it bold or italicize or anything like that is what you'll notice in this entire document is all the all the main points in this document have been on the left and they're highlighted on the left. And remember what I said earlier. A document is read top to bottom and red on the left side, not on the right side. So what you want to do is the person who is reviewing your document. You want to make sure that there basically being directed to the left edge of the piece of paper so they'll see, for example, share John. Then they'll see. Okay? He went to U C L. A. Then they'll see. Okay, he went to this high school. Then he went to Goldman. Stanley was an analyst, and and so on and so forth. The eyes were being directed to the left, not towards the right. It's on the right side of the document. We don't have highlight anything. We don't bold anything. We keep it simple, keep it basically pretty pure. Pure 10 font size text said he was That's the city that the state Now, if you're lusciously international, you can also change this to actually the countries of Leslie from Singapore. You can make that SG but any this I'm just gonna make an example of the city comma the state and always make the state to be a abbreviation because we want to make sure his mom a lot of text on the right side of the page. The next thing is the degrees. The next line is the degree you have Now this is bold and this is the first thing that is at italicized right again. It's font size 10. I'm not gonna discuss. The fund says again, this is purely the arrest of documents Font size 10 in terms of the content. So this is bold. This is italicized. And this is your degree name. A lot of degree names could be very lengthy. Like, for example, my degree name is actually bachelor of Applied Science in Engineering Science Aerospace Engineering. Now, trust me on this one, nobody really cares what the exact name of your degree is, right? Like the exact specific name. Nobody cares. You can always format it to be a little bit smaller if you have to, because once someone sees you've done engineering and you've done aerospace, that's it. You're not trying to lie, just trying to make it look beautiful. So if your degree name is going beyond half a page, it's going beyond that. Try to shortness that we have. Shorten is, obviously is. Instead of saying engineering science here, I just said, Bachelor of Science and Engineering Aerospace. Or I could have even done better of science in aerospace engineering if I wanted to even make a shorter. So it's all up to you what you want to do now. If you actually have done a minor, you can always put a comma here and put a minor in. Whatever you've done this is you've done a minor in economics. That's totally fine. The key thing here is if your degree name is going beyond 2/3 of that line, that's just pour formatting, so make sure you can get it less than that, and that's the right way to do it so that your degree name, maybe you're a minor. That's about it now. On the right side is a is the date of the month and the year when you will graduate or when you have graduated. Okay, so this is it's most likely a date in the future for most of us who are getting into these industries. And that's okay, because remember what this does is it basically puts down a peg in your career. What says, you know, to the interviewer that hate this is where this person is gonna graduate or is in his in his or her stage in life. So make sure you put that there. Put a short for months O J U N for June. The reason for that is, if you put like, longer format for some of the months like December September, it can be very, very lengthy, and you don't want to attract attention. You want to make it short, make it concise and make it look beautiful. So here I've said that I'm gonna graduate in June of 2020. All right, so now most people would they do is you know, if you look at most resident formats will stop here, they'll talk about their university. They'll talk about you know what degree they're getting when they're graduating, where the school list, but The truth is, this is not enough and is the whole concept of pushing the platform. No, The platform that's provided to you in this situation is your school. But this is a university or business school is not just there to educate you write or teacher courses. Yes, that's one purpose of it and used to be good enough for getting a job. If you went to Harvard, that would be good enough to getting the next job. But now the problem is, there's so much competition. Everybody in your school is going to the same school and is most likely applying to the same best jobs. And I want to make sure that we can differentiate you and make sure that people see you that you've not only gone to the school. You've done some amazing things at the school that the school provides. So these platforms provide a lot of cool things for you to do and want to make sure how you can use that and actually represent that in your resume. So let's move on to the bullets, and we'll discuss about how to push the platform in the bullet. The first thing with the bullets is there regular font size 10. But the key thing here is if you look at the spacing, if you see where this B is from the B to the part where the bullet starts, it's 1/4 of an inch 0.25 inches. And then when the bullet is to where this academic starts, that's another 0.25 inches. So what a hat! What is happening here is from the edge of the page to the time, or to the part where you get to academic. It's a full one inch distance, and that's consistent throughout the entire document. So make sure you set your bullets right so that they're very equally space. And don't screw this up because these bullets sizes and these spacing is what's used in the in the world of business. I want to make sure your document looks as similar as possible to all right, so moving forward, we're going to start using some of these tags. So this is the first tag. It's at talus eyes. It's called academics, right? This is related to your education and there's no bowl. There's no upper case, just regular fund, but italicize. But the key thing here is that the colon after that is not a tallis eyes. You can see that here. So the word academics is italicized with the colon after that is not italicized. This is proper formatting these air the small, unforced errors that people will see and notice if you make him. And remember, I told you, these jobs are very competitive, highly competitive and hard to get into and what they're looking for, someone who has attention to detail. And if you can't really show attention to detail by writing it on your resume, you have gestures showed by actually doing attention to detail related stuff. And this is one of those things. So make sure that your colon are on tele size. And there, you know, you follow that rule across the entire document because I've been in this industry and I have seen hundreds and hundreds and thousands of these documents. If somehow I see a document which has this mistake, I can pick it up automatically, and I don't want someone else to pick that up against you. All right, so let's get into this. Does get into the g p. A Now I have a whole section on GP Adele get into right after this. But right now, just a high level of mention is that if your GP is lower than 3.4, you should not put it. So we'll come back to this in a second. But for now, while we cover the education section, let's make sure we get this done right. So you put your GP down here, it's usually out of four point. Oh, and I would recommend you putting in the community GP and not your like, you know, you know, just the course sheep here, Program GP A. Just put your full community GPS, but after the GPU should not just end here, you should actually showcase that look. I've done all these courses that are relevant to this industry relevant to this job. And I've done well it because for a lot of us, what happens is there's a lot, Of course, is that we take and some of the course of we're not good at. But some of the course that were very passionate about that are actually relevant. We might have gotten in a and a plus in it. Those courses. Definitely, definitely. Take your time to say, Hey, look, I've received in a and this an A plus in that even a B plus in some of the courses that are gonna be relevant to the job and some of those courses that you can imagine if you're getting a job in investment banking would be courses relating to finance. Anything related to economics is fair. Game accounting is fair game. If you're applying for jobs and in consulting anything, religious strategy would be helpful. Any sort of case courses where you've actually done the course and the whole class is taught in a case format that would be helpful, obviously, for accounting jobs. You want to have as much accounting courses and do great in them. So those some of the courses you want to have, all right, moving on to the next bullet. The next bullet is honors same format, right? Make sure this is italicize and the colon is not. And this is what you want to put in all of your award that you have received. Now, this is kind of a gray area. You should you can put an award that you received in high school to get to university. So, for example, you receive some grad school scholarships. Right when you were graduating high school and there were four year university, you can put that in here If you were part of Dean's list and what is Dean's list means that here I'm showing them that, Hey, it means top 10%. And what years did I get it? For example, You can put that in here. Any other awards and scholarships that you received, you can put them in here and anything is fair game. And I remember you don't have to put in the entire name of the scholarship. You can always like, shorten it if you're running out of space. But the key thing here is like I mentioned before. No bullet should be longer than two lines. Write two lines is the maximum for any bullet. All right, so moving on the next one is leadership. You can also replace this with teamwork and is the whole concept. All of these universities only provide your education, but they provide all of these other avenues where you conjoined clubs. You can start clubs, you can be on sports teams all of those great things. And I would highly recommend to you that if you are currently in college or university, your grad school or in one of those platforms, you should definitely definitely push beyond it and push, push, push the platform to join as many things as possible and make your whole persona your whole brand super super interesting. Because remember this. I can have some a candidate who's applying to Goldman Sachs with a 4.0 GP and from Harvard . Or I can have a candidate who has a 3.5 g p a. From Harvard. But she also plays the violin. She's amazing in sports he plays, you know she is on the rowing team. She's on a lot of cool things. She's the captain of the chess team, that person who has a 3.5 g p from Harvard, but but has all of these amazing things is a lot more interesting than a person who has a 4.0, from Harvard and nothing else besides it. So be interesting. Add more things to your resume into your persona and your brand, and they don't have to be all related to the industry you want to get into. It should always be related to your passion. If you're passionate about, for example, dancing great, become a dance instructor or start a dance club. I don't care anything that you're passionate about. Make sure you find that in the plot from you have in the university, you have and go be part of us. In this situation you can talk about like some of the clubs. You've been part of, some of the projects you've led some of the design competitions. Whatever you've done, some case competitions, you can put them over here. Finally, one of the few things that you can actually also talk about is the study abroad. Study abroad. Exchange programs are amazing. When I was actually in undergrad, always thought there were a bad idea because you would go and you would hash tag waste time . But actually that that was the wrong strategy. I think you should always take some of these programs, exchange programs and only expands your network, but actually makes you more interesting. Makes you more exciting. And you see the world. You see the world from a different lens from a different so definitely when you get a chance and there's some exchange programs, definitely. You can put them in here and you can, you know, talk about now. One thing I want to mention this last bullet is and obviously this bullets not related to the exchange program. But if you wanted to, you can talk about the exchange, but that's an example. One of the things I want I want to mention here is this bullet is formatted poorly because if you look at the second word months, this is basically overflowing and taking that entire line here, right? One word or a couple of words similarly here, you can see, you know, on the bottom, the chemistry competition 2007 is taking the entire line. That is bad formatting. And if you run into bullets like this, I would highly recommend either you shorten them to pull this word back up in here or you add more content to this so that it actually fills in. And I try my bullets to actually take the entire 22 lines because everything in our document is left justified, right? You're not gonna justify you're gonna be basically a line text left And when is the line text left? You know, sometimes it's gonna end up showing like that. So try your best to get it as much as possible so that it reaches the edge of the papers of the whole document. Looks like a block of tech. All right, so finally, university is important. If you're in grad school, obviously grasping comes first and university, your undergrad will come second. But sometimes what happens is you're very early on in your career and you want to use your high school. It's okay to use your high school. I would recommend against it if you can. If you have other things you can put in, I would put that there are just permit high school. Totally. But if let's just say you're fairly young candidate you're in year one of college or your to college and you still don't have enough, like, you know, cool things that you've done, it's okay to put a section on high school. But remember, for high school, don't put more than two bullets. I think two bullets is more than enough. Maybe you know, a bullet on honors or academics, maybe a bullet on awards or maybe an extracurricular, but that's about it. Don't put anything else. The format remains the same. If you're in grad school, I would put grad school first, right? And then I would put your undergrad degree here. All right, so that's the education section and, you know, spend some time making sure these bullets, you know, showcase that you've actually pushed the platform and and, you know, showcase the best of your abilities. Now, one piece that we have to come back to the G p a. And that's a whole new chapter. So next lesson, I'm gonna talk in detail about how to get the right GP on your resume. 6. GPA: all right, So one of the education section and one of the most important part in section is your GPS. I know BP is one of those annoying numbers that we all struggle with. We're all trying to get it to be as high as possible. Importante sometimes and most of time for a lot of it's harder. But remember like a GP is still important. I know a lot of companies still were moving away from it, but majority of companies, they're still using it and still kind of, you know, deciding who to bring into an interview or not based on that one decimal or two decimal. Now, all of you know my my GP with 3.3 point 02 to be exact. But that doesn't mean that I put it on my resume. So one of the things I want to mention this little site segment really figure out how to get your GP to be higher. Why isn't low if it is low and if it is low now? The first thing I wanted to do is if your GP a, you know, as part of your life right now under grass, a meeting you can change, you can affect it. I would have high hiding. Recommend that you go for easier courses, right? Go for easier courses that allow you to get a higher GPS. Now let's say you're in a program where you can take a man's caplis or just regular take regular man. Nobody gives you credit for taking tougher courses or more like hard and advanced courses. The only people who love that you took tougher forces or your mom, and that that's pretty much it. Everybody else doesn't care. Employers don't care that, you know Advanced Cap unless you're becoming a mathematician or some hardcore engineer in the world. Business. Accounting, finance, consulting, messing, banking, these industries, tech industry it does not matter. So if you can do not, do not take forces, take easier courses so that you can actually get a higher GPS on top of that can try to take even easier courses, courses that you know you'd be great at, right. Remember, I always say this. You don't go to school to learn you go to school to earn what that means. You need to go through those four years or two years for an M B A. For example, and get that dream job after. That's the key here, so make sure you get your Jeep highest possible. And if you have to take some easy, super super easy courses like for example, let's say you're an advanced speaker of Mandarin, right? I want you to go take Mandarin 11 one. I want the first beginner's course of Mandarin and crush it. Just get 99% great. Who cares? Point is you're only gonna have that degree that says, you know, bachelors in economics, reduction of arts and accounting or whatever. That's right. You're all going to see that and have that and employers to locate this person has an accounting degree. They're not. Dig deep and see how you got your GP to be high. That's the key thing. If those numbers are basically pigeon holding, you and employers are like, you know what? Here's a person, and this is the bucket that fit. Just make sure you fit in, right get your GP to be as high as possible. Second thing is, you know, why is your g p. L o. Remember noting plans to have a low GPS, the same way that nobody plans to lose Every wants to win. Everybody wants to come first in class and get plus in class. The reason GP is low is because there's a high chance that you're not passionate about that course you're not taking it seriously. It might be too challenging. So my recommendation to you, especially for early on in her career when I was, for example, in my first year of aerospace engineering okay to quit. And I mentioned this in the last march, okay, to move on from it and actually choose would actually enjoy you actually learn, and you actually apply in your life. My biggest regret in life is that been to school for five years, four years and under graph for aerospace engineering, one year for financial engineering and to this date, I still haven't used anything that I've learned in those degrees. I spent hundreds of thousands of dollars paying off student loans, but I've not used even a single thing. I remember recently had to calculate the angle of a triangle for a personal project at home , and I still couldn't figure it out, which is such a simple thing. Someone who has to injuring degrees should be able to do so. I don't want you to fall in the same trap. You're lucky person that you're going to an amazing school right now. Use it to your advantage to learn something you love and you would use in the future. So please, please, if you're in a program which is making you get a lower G p passion, just not interested. And someone else said, You know, you should take it. Try to challenge yourself. Get out of that program. Choose approach. You should be more excited. Finally comes to what GP Should I put it First, you have to put in your cumulative GP not your program. GPR Semester GP companies Look, If your GP is lower than 3.4, how would high recommend not putting it on your wrist? The reason. I say that anybody who's being your resident think about who they are, right? These are folks were coming from from the top schools most likely have some of the highest GPS in their class, 3.83 point 94 point. Oh, and when they see someone who is 3.23 point three or lower they would like. This person is definitely not smart. Very easy assumption to make. What they don't know is the entire story. Right now. For some of us, there is no entire story. That is the story. We were just lazy, didn't work hard. And we have a low GPS. But I'm assuming you're not one of those folks. You have a low GP for a lot of other reasons. That could be some family pressures. You're helping your parents would work. You're helping your siblings when they could be a lot of different things, like mentioned earlier. How do you fix my recommendation to you? Is if you have a GP that's lower than 3.4? Don't put it. But at the same time, I want you to put a lot of other cool things on your resume that you've done that you started from scratch that you've actually participated in. That's the whole concept of pushing the platform. So someone who looks at that resume notices that there's no GP on it season. Wow. Jenny has started an amazing company on the site. Jenny actually has his online blogger talked about travel. Jenny actually has traveled to like 40 countries so far. So find other avenues that you'd be so passionate about that you have built you built from scratch. And you're part of that. Someone looks at you like you know what? Yes, the GPs missing. It could be low, but we don't know how low it is. But look at all these other cool things, this person. And as long as I see that, let's bring her in for an interview. So that's your national your goal getting that interview. So make sure you don't self eliminate yourself. Putting the low GPS. Anything more than 3.4 is bad. Don't put it. I still don't put my undergrad, but I have a lot of other things that started that. All right, let one of the next 7. Relevant Experience: alright teams. We've actually done the section now and it's time you want to be experienced. Section Experience is where you're gonna add all of your internship experiences. Your career experiences, all the cool things you've done outside of school. Now some of you might have extracurricular stuff as well. That's gonna come later. Right now it's time for experience. Come on. All right, team. So we've done education. We've covered that now. Time for experience. So first part of the experience is let's again put the hetero right. So this is the same as education. I would just copy this part here. I would bring it down and just call it experience again. This is bold. This is upper case, as you can see bold upper case and it's font size 11. Put the bottom border underneath it the same way. Keep and put the space or the facer just to make sure is fun size 11. So make sure you get that done right. All right, so we have a spacer above the experience. We have a space for below the experience line again, evenly spacing out our new section, which is the experience now. Some people's right professional experience here, I would recommend against it again. Remember, being concise is clean. Think about Apple's design language that's very clean. It's very modern, and you want to, you know, kind of mimic that. So less is more so in this situation. Don't put professional experience. We assume it's gonna be professional. All right, So let's start the first section. Remember everything in here? This entire section is fond sized 10 as you can see over here, Font size 10. Now we'll start with the first thing, and the foreman kind of uses the same concept as a Z education section. The 1st 1 is the name of the company that you worked at, and this is the most recent company you worked at or you're currently working at the upper case bold. And it's font size 10 and I'm using the name Goldman. Stanley. Here on the right side, is the same thing we're putting in when and where to be. Works is in Los Angeles, in California, and here on the second line, where we used to have the education degree before in education, we're actually gonna use it for a few other things. The first thing is your title. So what is your title? Are your summer analyst? Are you an intern? Are you an associate or your vice president? That goes in here? And this? All of this stuff is bold. It is italicized, but it is. You know, it's not upper case, and it's fun Size 10. Then you have a dash. And after the dash, it's the divisions. A lot of these big companies from McKinsey's to Goldman, Sachs of the World. They have all of these different divisions, from sales and trading and consulting and and research investment banking. In here, I put an investment banking division than have another dash. And after the dash, I have the sector because a lot of times it's not just investing banking division. It's actually the, you know, a different sector within those divisions. So make sure you put in that so that you differentiate yourself not on. If you guys noticed a little mistake that I have here, you can see there there. This dash is actually shorter than this dash right here, so make sure you are consistent across the entire document, and you're not like, you know, using one thing at one place and something else somewhere else. And make sure you keep it consistent. What you've seen here is I've made both of these dashes now the same left. So make sure that on the right side is a little bit different. But again, it's the month when you start it and the year with a long dash. And then the month in the year when you finished. If you're already and still working there, you can use present or you can use current up to you is totally fine. Now again, Nothing on the right said his boat or italicize. All right, so let's get into the content of this. Now that we have one explained the experience section ist using three different jobs. The 1st 1 is going to be a job that is relevant to the industry you're applying for. And I'm gonna show you how to use the you know, the content to work in your advantage that I'm gonna talk about a job example, which is gonna be not so relevant. It's gonna be, you know, different and probably not in the same sector. But I'm gonna show you how to use the relevant and transferrable skills and showcase them as a as an advantage. And finally, this last one, I'm gonna show you guys as a za concept of pushing the platform beyond the platform. So getting out of the platform and doing something on your own. All right. So starting with the 1st 1 again, the bullets are 1/4 of an inch from the beginning of the text. Half an inch. Is the margin here another quarter of an inch over here so that the word actually starts a full inch away from the edge of the page. All right. The first thing I want you realize is here in all of these bullets, a lot of people get confused. Hey, what should I put in the content? What should be the format of it? The basic idea here Is this the first bullet that you have? It's always kind of an overview of what you did in that job. All right, so this is kind of like a high level, 30,000 foot view of what you did that summer. Or that you know, in that job in that role, then the next few bullets, for example, here, all the way down to say the second last bullet, these air specific projects you worked on, all right. And finally, the last bullet is a conclusion. This is a place where you can put in the end the final statement from that in trim shape or current situation at that job. And it summarizes the entire experience. And we'll go through this together in a second now before we actually go deeper into each bullet. What I want you to notice is this. Remember how I mentioned that resumes air red from top to bottom, but mostly on the left side of the page. So again, going back up my name where I went to school than coming down was the company I worked at was my role. But similarly in bullets there also read only on the left side. Nobody reads everything in the middle here because, remember, it's the five second rule. We don't have that much time. So what? We need to make sure that someone who reads my resume on the left can also get the same picture. So if you see here, I say, lead liaised Now what does that mean? Analyzed, calculated successfully, basically, what's what. It's saying is the story it's telling is that, Hey, this person is a leader has been part of the leadership role liaised. Basically, this guy is a team player. This person has worked with multiple people in his life, analyze and calculators shows that I am a numbers person. I'm good at an analysis. I've done something in a real world situation, which requires analysis, which requires calculations. Finally, I'm successful that what I do, right? So again, thinking about someone who's reading it pretty quickly on the left side, let's make sure we show them that that hey, they don't need to read the entire thing. They can get the idea about what this person is all about, what this candidate is all about. All right, so let's dig deeper into each one of these bullets. The first bullet that I have here is lead equity analysis team to benchmark broker trading trends with life market data. Basically, what I'm trying to do is giving an overview of what I did in that internship. This is an actual bullet from one of my older resumes when I was in the sales and trading team at RBC, but what's interesting here is after the comma. I have a full, uh, a couple of words here which are actually a result and not just any result. It has a result with numbers. The numbers are very, very important and come back to it in a second. But the basic idea this here is that every bullet of yours if you don't put a result, then it's hard to believe it because anybody can just say that I did this or I did that. But when you actually put a result and especially if it's a numerical results, it actually automatically becomes really people are gonna be like, Oh, this person actually did it because there's a rial number associate with a real result associative. So make sure for all of your bullets as a result at the end, and I'm gonna come back to numbers in a second. Next thing I did was liaise with multiple teams. Now, remember, it's important to show a key number of like, you know, foundational characteristics. For example, I'm great analysis or I'm a team player. I'm a leader all those things. But instead of just putting them on the bottom of your resume, saying that Hey, and my skills include teamwork. I would embed all of your skills inside your resume inside the content so that people know that you've actually used those skills in real world situations. So here, I'm saying, liaise with multiple teams again, all these industries from banking, consulting, accounting, it's all teamwork. So you want to show that you're not just a solo person who is, you know, sitting behind a computer all day and just does your own think you love working with teams . So saying that you work with teams is a great thing here. Similarly, after this, you know, comma, I'm showing that there was a result and results could be all sorts of things right, from numbers from percentages to simple things like saying to fold, that's all. Fine. But make sure to try to implement a result that you confined in there. Next up is analysed, optimal exchange routes using valuation models in excel again. This is the whole concept of I'm actually talking about a single project that I did in this entire bullet. But I'm embedding a skill which is using Microsoft Excel and learning and implementing valuation models. So instead of putting it on the bottom of your resume that your great excel and you know how to use Excel actually show to the person who's ravine your resume that you've actually used it in a really work environment, real world environment, the value creation model in Excel, and only that in the brackets actually put a couple of like key, you know, functions that I used from Excel that helped ultimately produce this result. All right, finally calculated market closed client orders using another, you know, key skill that it was important and a result. And the last one is the successful. It is the conclusion, and hopefully most of your final bullets air conclusions that are successful It could be as simple as successfully received an offer to come back to that Internet to that company successfully was promoted to vice president, you know, successfully launched and did 12 deals within two years. Most of them Eman and I pose. So whatever it is, show some sort of positive end to that segment. So someone reading it's sees that you know, not only did you do a great job embedded all the skills, you had results, but all of them had a positive. All right, so So that's the first section, which is, you know, related to a company or a job or industry where you have done something relevance if you're going to investment, banking or consulting or accounting. This is using all the key things, because in all these industries, you're gonna be using Excel. You'll be working with teams you know you'll be working with some sort of financial analysis or something like that, and your it's easy to do in your display and describe these jobs. It's gonna be harder or some of the other ones. And in the next section, in the next few sections, I'm gonna actually get into the other parts of this document now. One point I want to mention is that in the experience section the job that is most recent in this situation like, for example, the Goldman Stanley job, this one has the most bullet. As you get further back in your history, older, older jobs you should reduce the number of bullets that you're using for them because they're less relevant again. The most relevant stuff in your life is the most recent 5 to 7 years anything before that is less relevant in this situation. I'm using Goldman Stanley. It has five bullets, but rest of the, you know sections have less and less bullets. 8. Numbers and Not Lies: Welcome back in the last section, we talked about a relevant job experience. Examples. Golden Stanley is something that's related to an industry you want to be in, and we basically used that as an example. One of the key things I talked about was numbers and results. I want to pause there and take a little Segway and actually go double down. Numbers are very, very important in your doctor, specially applying for jobs, investment banking, consulting county, any of these industries. Thes industries revolve around numbers. Numbers are the key thing that you'll be working on a daily basis in Excel spreadsheets, where documents power point doesn't matter where everything is gonna be all about numbers. So having more numbers in your doc is a good thing. It shows your analytical. You work with numbers. Before now, many of us probably haven't worked with numbers in a primary sense. For example, let's say your first job was as a cashier. That's right, or your nurse at a hospital. You'll be like I have any numbers in my environment. That's not true. Very, very important. Find those numbers because they do exist. Everything around us is numbers. I'll give an example, your cashier dolls and you know before you started there every hour. Bergdahl's with service about this is a 20 customers, but when you join right now, you can service about 25 customers because you're faster, you're more efficient. You're better with the cash. Register your faster with the customers, all those things, or you implemented some procedures that made it faster. Automatically. You found an increase right? Whatever. That number is 25% increase in the number of customers that can. The numbers are in what I want you do when you're building your resume for every bullet for every job that you have. I want to pause and think of what numbers exist. And there's all source of numbers that can exist. It could be like, you know, increasing revenue. It could be decreasing costs. It could be increasing members. It could be increasing fans on your instagram if that's what it takes or you're flogging whatever you do. All sorts of numbers and they could be percentages that could be dollars. We just need to four threefold increases or decreases. All of those things are going, and like I said, number is important because they make things really right. If you put a number down, it automatically becomes real. I'll give you an example. Let's say you're a friend who loves your show off. Let's call him. Jimmy comes to you, and Jimmy's like his shirt. I've been on hundreds of hundreds of dates last month, and you what? I don't believe that. But what if he comes back and says his shirt? I've been on 21 dates right now. He has a specific number that makes it a lot more real. So having numbers specificity in your document in your like, beautiful con is important. It makes things real. Now what types of numbers to use the biggest issue every time I tell us to do just like yourself. Hey, put a number on your resume gets what they do. They put the number 10% on there. Everything that they do apparently happens to be 10%. The increased revenue by 10% increase costs by 10%. The increased number of members in their club by 10%. The truth is nothing in real. Let ever actually happens to be 10%. Never ever. Right now, if it does happen to be 10%. I want you to change it. Now. You be like what? Sure, why? And this is where I tell you about a new concept. 50% of resin are you? The other 50% are not allies. This is very interesting concept. I'm not asking you lie on, resident. I'm asking you to use a constant call that not and a improved her modifying truth. For example, let me explain to you in detail. Let's say you ran the numbers on something, and it ends up coming out to be 10%. Now that 10% number is not believable. Nobody is gonna see that. Okay, You know, whatever this person saying on this resume happened to be 10% not the case, they're basically gonna eliminate you, and they're gonna be like, this person's line. But you know what's better than 10%? 9%? 9% is not a lot, because you get to 10%. You probably went through 9% but the truth is 9%. Much more believable number now asking you over, increase your accomplishments. So let's just say you actually did 10% increase in revenue, but you put it 11% because it becomes more believable. No, that's a lie. You're seeing that 11% you did, which is wrong, because you never did 11%. That's a lot. I'm not lying. Is reducing it, reducing your accomplishment, but making it more believable, right? Which works to your advantage. So take that 10% and lowered to nine per se. So your entire document used this concept of not look at each bullet point C Is this believable? Does this makes that doesn't look good even if you crushed it, right? Even if you have 8000% increase in your trading account look believable, right? Making look believable. Use numbers that make it look believe. So what are those numbers that make a look believable if you look at the resume that I'm showing you right here, but you'll notice a key thing about these numbers is what you know, couple of in three numbers. What is unique about these three Some of you might have. They are prime numbers right now. I don't want you to go and take all your numbers in your document to be prime numbers. Remember the rarest numbers that exists of prime numbers. But if you can't have a prime member, so let's just say you increase revenue 10% you reduce it and if you can bring it to 7% of close to 7% awesome. Great number. It's too far from primers. Too far using on number and odd numbers. Also very rare, right? Also very ready to use that, if not an odd number, use an even number. That's not like a full round number, like a 10 or 20%. Right? So that's kind of the hierarchy. Prime number, then on Remember, then an even number like 22 24 26 28 or death. You still can't do it, then maybe go use 10 20%. But I would highly recommend against the full you know, tens and twenties of the world stick two odd numbers. Those your best friends are prime numbers of you. Get to that and that's gonna help you make a resident look. No. Any more believable is gonna make it look right 9. Transferable Skills: what now that we know how to use numbers and lots of them in our rest, especially if they make us look good, we're gonna run the next thing. How do you use the jobs that you have on your resume and make them related to the job that you really, really want? Now, for most of us are early jobs are not gonna be as related to the to shoot want to get into . Unfortunately, everybody is lucky enough to get their first job at Goldman Sachs, McKinsey, Bain or Google. A lot of the startling jobs that are odd jobs, not industry. Like for myself. My first job when I was in college was actually a chicken restaurant, and it wasn't a bulge back breath, a chicken restaurant, KFC or Popeye's. It was actually a boutique chicken restaurant, and my next job in calling the security guard right and and then moving on. Then I got a job in a nuclear plan. Then I got a job at Accenture. Finally, after a few different jobs, then I got a drop in the world of business. But the first few jobs were totally not relevant, but they had transferrable skills. They had things that I could convert and market the right way. And if I marketed those right way and made them look like that. Hey, look, I have the foundation. I have the foundational skills in the core talent to do this next job to do this, you know, business related job. Then I could be a good employee. Sorry for next section. For this lesson. We're gonna go deep into how to do that. How to take a job that is totally not relevant or related to the industry. Want to be in, but we convert. All right, come on in. That's not focused on the job. That is not as relevant. So I'm gonna take this example right here. I'm gonna help you convert it into a job that show that you have relevant skills, transferrable skills, transferable assets that can help. You remember? Like I said before, these companies were looking for good people who've done great things. They know you can do the job, but they want to know. Are you Do you have that foundation to do this job? You may not have the right skill. That's super specific, but are you smart? enough to learn it. Have you been in environments that actually showcase those skills? That's where we're gonna do here, says an example here, when I mentioned to you that I used to work at a summer intern at a nuclear power plant in Ontario, which is in Canada, and this job that I had a second year of my university, it was very simple job booze, comparing drawings of various nuclear reactor parts and kind in trying to ensure if those parts needed replacement so you would have a brand new drawing of a new part, and then you would have a scan of a part that's already in the nuclear reactor. And as an intern, you would compare to those two parts. See which ones you know, need a replacement or needs some work, and then you would highlight them. And then, you know, senior management or other engineering teams would then handle it. It's a very, very simple job, but here what I want to show you is that I use that experience, converted it to make it more relevant to the world of business. So here we go. The first thing you'll notice here is that Obviously you have the name of the company, The same stuff. The place where you work. From which time to which time And then at the same time, you have your title and the group you worked for analysis to dig deep into the content. The first thing I want you to do is realize the same for Messi. Make sure format consistency remains. Now, let's get into the first bullet. And remember the first portion of the overview of that internship. So in here, what I've done is that said four Cassidy. What if analysis again? I'm bringing a business concept into the job that I did. Now what is the what if analysis? What if analysis basically looks at different paths? Right. Okay, If this happens, what's gonna happen if this happens? What's gonna happen if some other thing happens? You know what is gonna be the result of that? Now? Words like forecasted basically show that it's an analytical role. It's something related to analysis. And what if announces more but consulting term birds a business trip. Now, basically, I combined those two trips to show that you know my work, which was basically a what if analysis and forecasting that, Hey, which parts need to be replaced? And then what I did was I said, for the reactor shutdown event, right, right here. But the key part here is there's no such thing as a reactor shutdown event at that company . Yes, they shut the reactor down every few years so they can make you do the maintenance and whatnot. But what I did was immediate sound cooler than it is, right? I made it sound like it was a really event. And not only that, I actually give it an acronym. Any time you give anything an acronym, it automatically becomes cool. And last thing that I did it basically made it concise instead of me, using a long sentence like, Oh, you know, had this event which happens every few years, and they shut the reactor down and take along a lot of space on my resume. What I've done here is I've basically made a shortened, made it look cooler, sound cooler, and everybody gets the idea Reactor shutdown event. What else could it be? Right And then help identify the lowest cost approach again in the world of business showing that U f have actually worked with numbers analysis. Anything related to finance or budget or costs is a good thing, so you could be actually helping your parents. Let's just say they have a grocery store and you help them reduce budget. Great. That's a good thing to pet. Let's just say you are working at a McDonald's and you found out that, hey, if I give out only one napkin or two napkins versus five napkins, we can actually improve our margins again. You're bringing in these concepts that are related to the business world and showing that you have the mindset for next thing I said in short analysis was accurate. Sure, you know what? What do you showing here? You're basically saying that Hey, look, I'm ready to work in an environment where I need to be accurate every time. And these industries like banking, consulting, accounting. That's what they're paying you the high dollars for. They want you to be the person responsible for all of this analysis, all the modeling, all the power point presentation, and you need to be accurate. So I use the word analysis. I use the word accurate with showcases that I've been in these shoes before. Next thing I said zero room for error due to high stress environment. Now again, obviously, I'm a nuclear plant. I'm at a nuclear plant. Yes, it zero room for error environment and its high stress. But has it related? Remember, these industries of banking, consulting and counting are also zero room for error and super high stress. You're working late nights. You're working 18 19 hours a day. You know, people are always on edge because clients air chasing deadlines and all that good stuff. So because of that, you want to show that you've been in these situations and I can give you another example again. Let's just say your drive your the person who's managing the Starbucks drive thru zero room for error. Super high stress customers air coming in. Going out there ordering you need to get every order perfect, right? So similarly, for example, let's say your nurse at a hospital you cannot make a mistake. Every person's life is in your hands in a way so all of these environments can be converted and shown that. Look, I've been in these shoes before so I can handle whatever your new company. Let's say you're arresting banker, consultant company who's hiring me can handle, you know, would want to hire someone like myself next one I said, coordinated with the recovery team from General Electric. Basically, what I'm saying is I've worked with other teams, right? This is the whole concept of bringing in the team concept, right? Multiple teams working with multiple people, different groups within the organization and just showing that hey, I can do that at teamwork is something that I have it in my core and my core DNA and my foundation. And finally, as you can see here, I referenced the RSC, which is the acronym that I used up here make making sound, even memorial. And finally, a successful result analysis resulted in potential repairs about reducing potential repairs by 89%. I'm using a number like I mentioned the last episode and then acquiring funding for the project. Now, for numbers that are large like this, obviously don't convert them to odd numbers or anything like that. These air riel numbers just keep him to be as real as possible. Whatever the real case, the point of this little section is I want you guys to know that anything that you've done , if it's working at a chicken restaurant, fast food to work in a hotel or airline or you're a security guard or you were at some engineering company or you are a, you know, assistant to your professor for a summer project. Any and every job can be converted and found relevant skills. And so if you have those jobs, I want you to really sit down and spend a couple of hours really thinking about all the work that you've done and see what was relevant, what was related and what can be transferred into my new job. All right, next up, we're gonna talk about how do you actually go beyond the plan? 10. Beyond the Platform: All right, Welcome back. So, you know, we've talked about a little bit about the experiences We've talked about education, and now I want to take a pause and actually take a break and talk about something that's super important. And this is the whole concept of going beyond the platform. Now, I have a whole Ted X talk on this, right? But I want to mention to you guys and kind of one on one on this in all of our lives since we were kids with important platforms. And I mentioned this a little bit before where you're part of the high school you're competing with. When you're part of a university, you're competing with people in your course in your program, and then at the same time when you're apart of a brand, this is a McKinsey or Goldman Sachs or one of these bigger companies what you're working at , you're competing with people that are around, and what happens is automatically we started realizing that, Hey, you know, either we're good or not based on a very limited data set. But what happens is, after that, let's just say you're working at Goldman Sachs and you're amongst 10 other analysts and Goldman Sachs. Your line kind of switches to basically trying to come number for Number one in that, and that's a role mentality because competition is actually global. It's not limited to your group at Goldman Sachs for your bunch of friends or fellow students at Harvard or whatever school you go to. It's actually bigger than that, much more broader than that. So it's important to know that look, you know, competitions going beyond it. So why am I competing with just the limited set that's around? And if I am, how can I differentiate myself beyond the folks that are in my competitions? So let's take an example from here. Let's say you're applying to Harvard business. Think about who was gonna be your competition. Everybody from you know, someone who's worked at McKinsey to someone who's worked at Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. To Google to the White House is gonna be your competition thes the people that are gonna be competing against you right now. All of these people will have amazing brands on their rest. Just saying you're Goldman Sachs analyst is not good enough. So this is where I want you to pause and really think about this. The person who actually gets hired is not the person who is from Goldman Sachs and a 4.0 GP or from Goldman Sachs and the number one analyst at Goldman Sachs. The person who actually gets higher but gets accepted into Harvard business school issues said, is a person who is from Goldman Sachs but is also doing these. Also, other things may be playing the violin. Maybe amazing at soccer, maybe has an all night store where they sell T shirts around the world or maybe start a charity where they're helping someone else. Just going to Goldman Sachs and being the number one analyst in that limited competition set is not good enough. At least not get enough anymore. You need to go beyond and beyond. The platform means, yes, be a great analyst at Goldman Sachs. You don't have to be the top analyst. Golden sex. Just be a good enough one, but then find other avenues, other things that you started from scratch on your own that are defined by you. They are you through and through, and those become things that basically defined you that people notice you and then they forget about the golden sex everybody else had. The Goldman Sachs on everybody else has McKinsey all that everybody else has Google on their resume or harbored on their resume. And you have basically built something from nothing from scratch from a clean piece of paper. And that's called Going Beyond the platform Now, all of my life. Even when I was an undergrad, I started something from scratch. My first business that I started, it was starving company, and I mentioned that before. Then I started this workshop, Siri's that's been running for about 11 years now, or 10 years, more than 10 years now and then. There's other things that I've started along the way. These are the things, and you'll be surprised. These are the things that actually get asked of me in my interviews and not my other brand names that you know, I hope, like nobody asks me about my Morgan Stanley. People ask me about this stuff, these workshops that teach, you know, these coaching blessings that I do thes mentees that I have around. That's what people are more excited about because those things are rare. So I want you to find something that's rare, and that's interesting about you that you loved. Some of you were like, Oh, you know, you have to start the next Facebook with the next big idea. Whatever. I don't have any ideas. You always have ideas. Those ideas come from the heart, not from the brain. And what of those does that? Things that you just love doing. For example, if you love cooking, that's an idea. Started coding. Champ as simple is that if you love fashion, start a T shirt or start a line that makes cool looking socks. I don't care if you're great at dancing. For example. You love dancing, start a little local route where you teach dancing to other folks so it doesn't have to be big. It actually must and should start small. So start small step by step. Not with the idea that hey, one day there's gonna be a big thing. When I started this workshop series, I started small. The first lecture that Todd was just 30 kids, right? I never thought I was teaching at Harvard or 20,000 plus students or sitting here across from you right now I never thought about that was never the plan. The plan was focus. Let's start small. Let's just teach a few people and see what happens. So I want you all to start small, start thinking about things that you naturally just love doing. You wake up happy and you would never be pissed about doing and add them to your life making official Get a license for doing it started business where you start earning a little bit of money and I will teach you lessons. On top of that, what it does is because you do it all yourself. And this is your baby in a way, you know everything about it. So when it shows up in an interview, normally isn't rare in differentiates you from all of your competition because you did this . Nobody told you. You built this from nothing. It basically is something that you know everything about. So you never have to prepare an answer for this question. Hey, how did you start this workshop? Tell me. I know the answer. I never have to prepare and it's so natural. So based on that, let me show you in the resume. Actually, how I did that. And I'll use the example of starting that, starting a business come to me. All right. So let's talk about how do we go beyond the platform? So I'm gonna use an example of from my own resume, actually, And I told you guys this that I started a photography business when I was an undergrad. So I'm gonna use some of the examples from it on and show you what it means. And also, a lot of the numbers have been changed, but it'll give you an idea. So again, name me or put the name of the business here. You know, you're the owner, you're the founder. That's a great thing. You have a license for it, for example. You know where it Woz and went to when you have it. And the good thing about this is like the things that you can run on the side on the weekend. So you never have to, you know, end them so they can always be current or present because you're always managing them on the side now again, the same bullet format. But because this is older, this is in a little bit in the in the past, I've only used four bullets here, but I'll show you some of the advantages of doing something on your own. The first thing is, you get to hire people now. Doesn't mean you're hiring through some professional HR. You're basically the solo show here. The benefit here is you can actually show that hit. Look, I've hired folks. Maybe there's some interns. Maybe they're just your friends, right? And it shows you managed a team at a very early age. You've learned these basic principles of running a business on, and obviously you're showing an overview provided academic tutoring services for me was providing photography services to X number of high schools and universities. Now, this number is actually really At one point I had 13% market share of high schools. So point is when you run any sort of business, you started getting these numbers automatically started getting market share, start getting results and you use them next up, you know, experienced deal dynamics. Now again, this is you know, especially if you're doing a sales business. I was doing a photography business was required. Selling it allows you to actually connect with clients interact with clients and and hone in on basically improving your sales pitch and winning deals. And at some point, you know, I reached out to turn 50 clients, and when I say clients for me was high schools trying to go photograph their their events. But, you know, ultimately made me a better business professional, because I use this to learn how to make deals, how to negotiate all of those core foundational skills you'll need when you're in banking, consulting, accounting. Next thing you'll become better operations. Remember operations a big part of business. But in this situation, you know, I said, outsource offsite tutoring to students. Now what I'm actually doing what I actually did was instead of printing the photos for my students on site meeting at home actually used Costco. And because of using Costco, which is ah, you know, a big box retailer of sorts in the U. S. And Canada. It allowed me to print for very, very cheap, and that helped me improve my margins on reduced fixed costs. So again, bringing numbers into my thing bringing like, you know, business related terms like profit margin fixed costs, those kind of things into my resume shows that, hey, look, I understand how to kind of manage a small business, even, and it doesn't matter if it's small. By the way, I think it's a good thing that it's small because manageable that way, you don't need to start baked. Sometimes it does become big. The small businesses do become big, and that's great. But don't make it a goal. Your goal should be. Let's run an amazing little company that's it. Finally director of growing company and successfully generate revenue Now again. You know, I ran that business for almost three years and made enough money to pay a big chunk of my signal loans. So there's a lot of these secondary benefits that come from it. So use this to your advantage. That's just one of the examples. And the best thing about this is that look, a lot of us, you know, may not be lucky to get a job. There might be a recession that's, you know happening, or it might be a downturn of the economy or something related to that. And if you can't find a job, my best recommendation to you would be to create a job. The best way to create a job is to go beyond the platform and build it yourself these days with the Internet and what's offered to Shopify and Google and Facebook, it's so easy to start a small business, right, teaching online whatever you are. Good at whatever you're passionate about, figure out what it is and I challenge you. And I basically want you to go out there and spend some time thinking about it. Any time you're free, think about it and create something of your own. Not only is gonna differentiate you is gonna make even more successful, and it's gonna bring good luck and prosperity and all the good things that you need to get to your dream career dream goals in life. 11. Extracurricular: looking back. So we've done the experience section. Now we've done the education section. Now there's a couple of sections that are left now the one section that I do want to mention. I'll just do it on video instead of showing you here the extra curricular section. Now long. You may not have a lot of extra trippers, but I want you to go and find those. That's the whole concept that I mentioned the education section about pushing the platform , using everything that's around you and using a cheered. So when you were in school and if you are in school, that's the university college undergrad business school. Whatever fine clubs that you can join fine sports leagues that you conjoined and spend more than three months in each one of those things because that differentiates you. And if you have done that you have spent more than three months in any of them, Then I would recommend treating a new section under experience after experience, who had a new section called Extracurricular, where you can actually name the group, as you know, volleyball team for U. C. L. A. And talk about what you did there. These things are great things to have on your resume to different ship, but also filling the empty space you may have. So sports leagues is a great place to start. You know, Music Clubs is a great place to start any sort of educational or business related clubs. A great place to start. Finance clubs, accounting clubs, consulting clubs, even cultural clubs. A great place to be be there, get their become a member, rise up, become a senior member, become part of the executive leadership team. All those great things to have in your extra Cooper section. Now, if you are already an employee, listen, you're already working somewhere your full time employees. You can still have an extracurricular perception. There's community sports teams that exists in your neighborhood, Let's say, or even there's teams within your company that exists. I remember when I was a Morgan Stanley and home home, we had a Dragon Boat team that was part of so being part of those things is important because again friendship you they make you cooler than and more interesting than someone who's just a great analyst at Morgan Stanley. So become a good Alison. Morning, Sally with all of these other cool things and Adam ensure extra corrector because people are more interested to work with people that are different and cool and exciting versus just someone who just does their job work or just has a 4.0 GPA. 12. Additional: all right, So our residents almost done use a few more sections left. This last section is the additional section and the addition Second is important because it's kind of a catchall. Everything that doesn't fit anywhere else comes into the additional section. It's a great place to put things like, for example, any key skills that you have. You could bet into the into the actual contents lesson. Say you know how to use capital like you use some sort of research. This is the place where you want to put that. Or, for example, you've got some certifications that you've done some a couple of months courses that you don't. You can put this here. Let's hear in the middle of taking the CF A. You still haven't fully completed. This is the perfect place for you. Put that CF so all of those things can come in here. On top of that, there's also things like interest you can put in interesting many Was that instead of me telling you on this video, let me show you a couple of things that you do in the additional section. So this is a place where you can put things that don't belong anywhere else. Like I said now, one of the few things that are I think it's important is and memory. When you're applying to these industries, sometimes your resume actually gets reviewed by, you know, quotations. Ai right, some sort of like online resume collection system. Now, remember these air, not super technical systems. They're basically looking for key words. My tip to you to you, for this would be if you have a job they're applying to, and you have the job description available so that's usually available on the career side of that company. Find some the keywords that they're looking for. So, for example, in this situation, let's you're applying for investment banking. So there's no everything's like valuations. Discounted cash flow, public comparables, precedent transaction analysis. These are just things that you know are helpful when you do the job. Now you may not have done it, but you may have taken a course for it, even at school, or maybe on your own on YouTube, or doesn't matter where, maybe through me or whatever point is all of those things. If you just put it in a couple of bullets, then When that algorithm checks your resume later on, it will automatically give you a check mark because you'll be like you know what? This person has that on their resume. So they must have done so. It's a great place to cash things like that. Finally, any sort of databases researched out of basis, you know, like Bloomberg Capital like you, Dun and Bradstreet Thompson Reuters. Any of those things that you use. It's a great thing to put it in here and finally interest if you have interest. For example, you love public speaking. You know you love traveling. Be specific about it, right and on. Obviously, I have hunting pigeons in there, and I Hopefully you don't hunt pitches on in your street. But, you know, have fun things in here that you actually do. Like, for example, I run five miles every day. So from my resume, it says that or if you've traveled specifically put in that you know, you've traveled to 29 countries, that's a great thing. Or if you've done the Himalayan track or Trans Siberian railway, put interesting things because when people look at interest, it's always seen because kind of usually the last line in the resume. So it's a great place to, you know, put things that you can't fit anywhere else that resume in terms of what you want to put in . And I just want to make sure that you have one more thing. So right now, this is obviously a template, So don't use it as an example of what they should finally look like. I'm just using as an example to show you different things. The resume. Remember, all this empty space that I have on the bottom there shouldn't exist. This is just in my template right now because I'm just giving you examples. But for you, that should be full to the team. And later on, I'm gonna show you my resume and you'll see that how it looks like and how the for my looks clean, remember, put in things don't change the line spacing by the illogical. What they do is open your increased line spacing to like, you know, 1.21 point 25 So that if fills up the space, no line spacing has to be one point. Oh so fine. Additional things to put in, maybe join clubs talk about other things. And Philip the page with that, when you're finally done the resume, I want you to save that resume as this file always always PDF and we'll come back to this. But basically the file name should be resume dash your first name, last name dot pdf, But in the next lesson, I'm specifically talk about why that matters. 13. What Not to Put: all right. So residents always done a few things that we're gonna make sure that we don't a lot of time mistakes on their resumes and errors and typos, and that's okay. Hopefully, the foreman helps you remove those airs. Also tell you what, not to put on your trust. Me. So many people self eliminate themselves by putting some of these things. The first thing is on the top of the residents. Sometimes people put objective. It said You're trying to get a job in investment banking or in a similar industry or something along those lines. It's a bad idea. No objective on a resident. Please, please do not put that because the objective is clear. You want a job in the industry. We know that's why you're submitting your resume. So don't put the second thing you will put on their resume, especially on the bottom of the If they'll say references available upon request again, that's a bad Do not put that. Obviously they are available if we want it right. If I'm an employer and I want you to send me some references, you will make them available, so don't put that on your resume. That's a waste of space as well. Finally told her anything that I can actually can make people biased against you. Obviously, we don't want people to be biased. You want to level playing field, but unfortunately in the world there are some bias people and they can see something, and that can trigger them the wrong way. Anything related to immigration, anything related to politics. Anything related to you know, things that people can be biased against you for trying to avoid those things, right? So let's say you have an affiliation of the political party. I would try not to put it there because you never know who's gonna be reading your and it means they may take it negatively. They may take it positive. We don't know why. Take that risk so definitely avoid things like that. And finally don't put things related to Hey, I would need sponsorship for immigration sponsorship or Visa sponsorship if I have to work there right? Don't need to disclose that information right now. Later on in the process. If they ask, you definitely tell them intelligent truth. But right now, on a resume whose intent, like whole job, is to get you an interview, don't put things like that. We can sometimes self eliminating 14. Final Check: all right, so the recipe is almost done. Basically, it's done, and we need to make sure it's perfect now because it's almost done. But we're still not sure there's some Arizonans typos on it. We need to double check, triple check. This is what I would recommend to you if you are building your resume. First of all, when you start your resume when you started a piece of paper, don't start on a computer, right? There's bigger reasons why? Because you could make Arizona's you can be like blinded by a lot of notifications and social media popping up. Focus and build a resident a piece of paper. First, get all the wordings in the sentences. The bullets, right? First, cause that's the content creation piece. Really think about job. Really Think about all the results you want to put it all the numbers you want in your resume and your content. Once you have that, that's when I want you to transition that resume into a word processor so myself, word or pages on Mac Those are the best ones that I would recommend what you're in there. I want you to build your resume and make sure that all the formatting is right. Double check and triple. Check it on the computer. Once you're done, I want you actually go to sleep. Now, this is important. I want you to actually take a day off from your rest. The reason is when you've been looking at your resume for hours at a time, hours at a time, all those minor mistakes that actually I can cash because I've been an investment banker or someone else and catching the been an accountant or consultant banker you won't be able to see because your brain has those imprinted imprinted on there and you won't really notice them. You go take a nap, wake up the next day and have a fresh memory. Right. Cleans clean brain, clean, clean memory and not have any stress or visual references. Julia, by those things, you'll notice those things in the second day when you notice those things. Fix them right. Make sure of all the years. Make sure four minutes consistent across the board. Make sure there's no errors around it. There's no type spelling mistakes, grammatical mistakes once you have that done, that's what I want you to save. That document as a PdF. Remember the only way to share a resume as a PdF. It's not a word document. It's not a paint document. It is a pdf. The reason for that is you work so hard on building this beautiful document. All this formatting many, many hours, weeks of work. This is your brand, right? And you don't want this brand to change when someone opens it on a different device. When someone opens it on their laptop iPad or iPhone more than microwave. I don't know how people are opening these documents. He stays. That is what I want to make sure, though, is that your format that you built so hard on such a beautiful weight stays consistent and nobody can change it, regardless of how they view. Pdf is one of the best ways to do that. To make sure residents always saved as a PdF, the second piece is when you do have that resume, I want you to print it, don't share it, print that document and review it on a piece of paper look at and visually hold it. When you hold a document, it actually somehow very weirdly, you can notice mistakes. You can see errors. You can see missile line. You can see there might be an extra space somewhere. Those are the key things to make sure your print it and double check in there Once that is done, that's what I want. When I want you share with your insights instead, circular friends, your family members, people that you trust Let them review it. Let them see it right And what they see it. They're gonna have a lot of feedback on it. Don't take any feedback related to format because remember the four months that I'm teaching you that I have taught you it has work. It works already. It works in all the best banks consulting firms, accounting firm, business school, tech firms, private equity. Yeah, work. It has placed people there. It has gotten them in the interviews that you are seeking. Don't change the format. Keep the former consistent, which you should be able to get feedback from our typos and the errors dramatically errors and your wording. That's off. Maybe some stuff on the content. That's fair. Take that. Incorporate that feedback double check the resume again and guess what? You have the perfect resume in the world 15. Conclusion: So there you have. You're one step closer to one of the best resumes in the world. But remember, the journey's not over. I've only taught you having yet You have to take all these lessons. And after you craft your perfect resume yourself. So as an assignment as the end of this course, I want you to take all the lessons learned from this course that tactics, strategies all of that and craft your perfect rest. Then, once you've crafted your resume, remember, don't let it go stale, right? Every few weeks or a few months. Go updated. Cool, refreshing, making 1% better. Remember, this is a living. And remember, the goal of a resume is to help you get closer to your dream job and help you get the Don't take this lightly. Make sure you put the effort in getting yourself to be closer to your dream job. I hope this is really helped you. I've added a couple of templates as downloads that you can use. One is a resident format template then you can use, but I would actually recommend you not using at first building from scratch, using techniques that taught you cause it's gonna make you better and using the word processing software. Number two have also actually included a copy of my own personal reasons So you can see that what a shirt don't actually use for his own hiring for his own recruiting. I've used that. Use it as a zone example. Use that as a template to just get ideas from, and hopefully that helps you. Finally, I just want to say thank you from the bottom, my heart for taking my course.
