Models have portfolios, writers have writing samples and babysitters have references. As a business owner are you aware of your business resume? The business resume illustrates to potential clients the ability of your product, brand and you. Certainly, you can make promises of service and product but clients are smothered in competitive brands offering the same thing. Clients have a slew of business cards with no clear distinction.
A resume is a building block to your business. If you are a graphic artist let your resume shine through an example of that. Are you an architect or in construction? Allow your service levels to top the list. A business resume does not follow the chronological steps of a personal resume, it is more illustrative of your company's skills and reviews.
A great resume example was found from the Mojave Masonry company: http://www.mojavemasonry.com/gpage8.html The resume is illustrated online for all clients and I am sure they have a print out available. It lists the company's review and then the accomplishments with reference numbers. This gives a sense of credibility to the client, and many times the references are not called but it's an offer that is nice to see.
Here was another business branded resume: http://www.staffingera.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/job-resume-domestic-agency-resume-with-photo-job-searching-job-wanted-employer-employee-free-jobs-classifieds-.jpg Christopher, the photographer notifies clients not only is he educated in his field, he is experienced and carries skill qualifications.
Objective not needed, the intended aspect of your business resume is to flaunt your brand, your reviews and skill levels. Business cards are a fun way to share information but a mini-sample of your personal touch on paper gives a firm reminder.
Are you more apt to remember a business card lost in a networking shuffle or this in your e-mail your next day as a follow-up hello: http://goodmajn.files.wordpress.com/2010/09/goodmanflyer.jpg
