Something to say

You're needing to write your resume and you are sitting in front of a computer monitor. A blank page is staring back at you as you begin to think about what to write. A number of ideas begin to circulate in your head as you think of your accomplishments. I'm sure there have been many over the years as you've worked. Don't be afraid to write out every success that pertains to a position either. Your new employer really does want to see that, they want to know you'll be a success with them.

While accomplishments need to be listed I would recommend that you don't get too wordy. Short and to the point works much better when it comes to resumes. Managers are rather busy and they would like to read the important stuff quickly. Because of this I recommend making your resume to be read in 10 seconds or less for most people. Management positions however they do expect to get a longer resume for the submission. Two and three pages are quite common for management positions.
