If you’re considering our proposal resume review services, it’s likely you are responding to a solicitation for service instead of one for products. The solicitation may or may not specify the resume format.
If you think you shouldn’t attach canned, personal resumes, you’re right. A proposal resume is not the same thing as a personal resume.
Proposal Resumes Are Different
For starters, the format of a proposal resume is different. Even where the format is specified in the solicitation, proposal resumes are typically branded to fit the overall design of the proposal document. They have unique layouts and headshots are often included. Though several resumes might be submitted with the proposal, they all appear to belong together. They are consistently designed and written.
From a content perspective, proposal resumes are customer-focused. They clearly address and highlight customer requirements and exclude irrelevant data. Proposal resumes are compelling and should be easy to evaluate. This is true, even if the curriculum vitae format is required.
