Want to make sure your resume communicates the type of role you’re ready to assume?

Give yourself a title at the top of the resume. For example:

Mary Smith     |    111 Main St.   |    Boston, MA 02108   |    617.555.5555

________________________________________________

PROGRAM/ PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR

_________________________________________________

Then go right into your summary section:

Seasoned program development strategist… etc.

Or, if you don’t want to use a title like Director or Manager, use descriptive nouns instead (nonprofit…. management, development, professional, strategy development, etc.)

 

Mary Smith     |    111 Main St.   |    Boston, MA 02108   |    617.555.5555

_______________________________________________

STRATEGIC PROGRAM/ PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

_______________________________________________

By giving yourself a title, you’re enhancing your brand and helping companies quickly understand where you can add value. Make sure, of course, that the title is appropriate for whatever job you’re applying to!
