Is the glass half empty or half full? The same principle applies to careers scattered over industries, functions, and job levels, plus volunteer experiences, languages, licenses, and memberships. How can you pull the pieces together to make a positive impression on a resume? First, consider the elements that compose your resume as bits to be combined in a mosaic. The resulting resume, and cover letter, too, applying this approach can provide a composite impression of you as a person who has a rich palette of experience with each piece contributing to the whole. One way to start is to label subsections within the experience section, such as (a) Corporate and Entrepreneurial, (b) Core Care and Previous Experience, (c) Launch and Develop, and (d) Law and Nonprofit Leadership. You will need to create your own subsection headings to fit your experience. The point is that we need to take what we have, consider each element to be an asset, and shape the result into a strong, positive resume.
