When seeking guidance in evaluating the quality of a targeted resume, remember that it can only be judged with reference to the position for which it was written.

Dave: “Rod, I just re-worked my resume and I’m getting ready to submit it to one of my targeted positions. I’d like to have you take a look at it and give me some feedback.”

Rod: “Hey, Dave … that’s terrific. It looks like a very professional piece of work.”

Dave: “Thanks Rod, but what I really need you to do is to evaluate how well I’ve built my case. I need you to focus on the writing, not the layout.”

Rod: “Gee, Dave … I’d love to help, but aren’t we missing something here? How can I evaluate anything? I can only judge your words based on the specific job description to which you’re responding. How can I judge whether this resume is good or bad if I don’t even know what the goal is?”

“Show me the job description you’re responding to, THEN I’ll give you the feedback!!”
