Make Sure Your Resume Tells a Story

Just saw this great comment on a blog post about storytelling as it relates to marketing:

Twenty years ago, a used car salesman said to me, “Facts tell, stories sell.”

This is just as true of your resume as it is of a product. If you’re not getting a great response, look at your resume again and ask yourself if it tells the story of your career or simply recites a bunch of facts.
