Before you submit your consulting resume, be sure that the resume includes previous consulting results, your travel preferences, and your publications. By doing so, you'll be well on your way to crafting a consulting resume that will land you your dream consulting job.

If you only had 10 seconds to ''wow'' a consultant with your resume, what would you include? In this article, you’ll find a list of the top three things you won’t want your resume to be without. By including everything from past results and your travel preferences to a list of your publications, your resume will not only gain a potential employer’s attention but will get you that interview you’ve been looking for.

Tip #1: Consulting Resumes Should Show Results



As a consultant, your job description includes offering advice to and/or fixing problems for clients and companies that ask for your help. In short, your main objective is to get results. So, be sure to show how you improved your past clients’ businesses, how you made them money, how you helped them save on costs, etc. Whatever it is you did successfully for your past clients, be sure to list it in your ''Accomplishments'' section. These kinds of results will automatically catch the attention of anyone interested in hiring you.

Tip #2: Consulting Resumes Should Include Your Travel Preferences

If you are willing to relocate and/or travel extensively, be sure to state this at the bottom of your resume. Many consulting resumes also include a list of the different places the consultant has relocated to. This allows a firm to know whether or not you’d be available to travel several times a month. As a consultant, you never know where your next client might be located: in-state, out-of-state, overseas, etc. Wherever it might be, you may need to travel there. If you’re willing to move around a lot or relocate all together, be sure to make that clear.

Tip #3: If You Have Been Quoted or Published, Say So!

If you have been quoted by noteworthy publications such as the New York Times, USA Today, or the Los Angeles Times, ensure to list the articles in which your quotes appear under a ''Publications'' section of your consulting resume. To make it easier for someone looking over your resume to find these publications online, include the relevant URLs alongside the titles of the articles.

Make sure, however, that your Publications section includes articles that are relevant to your career. Someone looking to hire you as a consultant might not care if you’ve been quoted on the importance of going green, even if it is in the New York Times.

Conclusion

Showing your results, travel preferences, and publications on your resume will not only help you create a well-crafted consulting resume but will help you land your dream consultant job.
