The Office has kind of lost its shine for me post-Michael Scott. But I did catch the recent episode wherein Pam heads off to a job interview with a resume that, as she says, could fit on a post-it note.
Oh Pam, you ninny! You should have come to RedRocketResume! There are several great pieces of information Pam should have used to beef up her resume.
Help to Improve Pam’s Resume
Didn’t she land herself a promotion and create the office’s first-ever Office Manager position? That’s great resume material.
Casting my mind back through past episodes, I think she could add items regarding event planning, company morale, process improvement, executive support…
Though her artwork isn’t directly relevant to her current job target, she could mention her side-business painting murals, her art exhibits, and her recent commission to add interest to her resume.
I encounter many people who, like Pam, chronically sell themselves short and shy away from opportunities because of fear of the unknown. Creating a strong resume is a great morale booster and a great way to remind yourself of all you’ve accomplished.
Now I wonder what I’d write for Dwight’s resume…
