Do you have a marketing plan?

Set your résumé to the side. I know it seems a strange thing to ask. Everyone tends to start by adding past experience to an existing résumé. The résumé gets longer, the font is smaller, and the relevant information that shows you would be great in this new role gets buried in the detail. The résumé is overlooked by the recruiter, and you rewrite your résumé multiple times hoping for a better outcome.  Sound familiar?

Instead, formulate a plan — a goal, a targeted message, identify the audience and start by tailoring every action to your goal.  Learn more about how to create the plan and position yourself for success in your job search.
