Walk Me Through Your Resume

In recent months several clients have asked me what they should do when an interviewer asks to be “walked” through a resume.  There are two ways to address this request.  The worst strategy is to start with your current job and go backward.  This takes you away from recent experience or education that qualifies you for the position you are seeking.  It is better to move from least recent to most recent experiences.  The strongest type of response would not end with your current job or most recent degree.  Instead, you would show how you are prepared to do the job you are interviewing for.  Walk the interviewer into a place where she will want to offer you a job.
