The Must-Have Resume Companion. The SoloSheet

 

networking biography, networking biography sampleThis post is about creating and using a networking biography. And includes a template.

Everybody looking for a job has a professional resume. Great. You are now equal with everyone else in the world.

Looking at your professional resume, some are better than others and it’s important that yours clearly outlines the value that a company can expect to find in you. And one that excites an HR or hiring manager about the fit and promise your background suggests.

But how do you begin to differentiate yourself while providing a tangible tool for others to truly know how they can help you?

The answer is a relative of the “one-sheet“. A term that originated in the movie business, a “one-sheet” is a single page document used to sell an idea, a concept or in your case, yourself.  The key is that everything you need to know is right there on one page.  A movie poster is the quintessential one-sheet.  What else do you need to know?

So the idea of one piece of paper to sell something isn’t new.  And, to be honest, the idea of a networking biography to present your candidacy for jobs isn’t new either.  There are a number of good templates out there.

What amazes me is why so few people that I meet have a good networking biography.  Is it an awareness issue?  Are job seekers stuck in the past?  Is it laziness?

Perhaps it is a mix of all these issues.  Regardless, I have a networking biography template that I adjusted for my own use during a 2007 search that I wanted to share today.

It is a free job search tool.  Available now on the career downloads page.

I call this a “resume companion”.  Why?  Because it includes many of the key pieces of information from the resume without the burden of too much data and with the addition of very tangible and actionable data.

So who wins when a job seeker has a networking biography like the SoloSheet™ ?

  • Job seekers have a focused and very tangible pitch sheet or networking biography – perfect for the quick exchanges common at many structured networking events.
  • Recruiters have a simpler format from which to make quick decisions as to the fit with their client listings.
  • Fellow job seekers can now better help those they network with based on the additional data. Data that makes lining up new friends with new jobs much easier!

Now, let’s go through each section of the SoloSheet™ to describe how it is built differently from a professional resume.

 

NAME AND POSITIONING STATEMENT

The key difference on this networking biography is the positioning statement.  Whether you have this on your professional resume or not, it is critical to quickly and well position yourself in a crowded market.  Keep it short and make sure it says key things that make you unique.

CAREER SUMMARY

The summary is a short written paragraph that tells the story of your positioning statement.  It can prove your position by providing credible evidence along with a solid reason why (or two).

WORK PHILOSOPHY

This statement is one that I added.  It tells how I approach my work to achieve the desired results.  If you have built up a structured thought process or methodology to achieve success, introduce it here.  What is your work philosophy?

WORK HISTORY

Unlike your professional resume where the details of each position provide more granular evidence of your skill and experience, here you are simply providing a chronological history.  One that tracks company (industry), title (promotions), and dates (loyal vs. opportunistic).

CAREER OBJECTIVE

Here’s another difference from the professional resume (at least mine).  The SoloSheet includes a career objective because it is critical that your network know what you are looking for in your next role.  It should include title, industry, geography, company size and any other data that would help people assist you. The more specific the better on a networking biography.

NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENTS

These are critical.  Think of the top 4 or 5 accomplishments from your professional resume for your past 2-3 jobs.  The ones that, when combined, show the breadth and impact that you have on an organization.  Here you can learn how to write a great accomplishment statement.

KEY COMPETENCIES

This can be a bulleted list or a written list separated by commas.  These are 8-10 specific skills that allow someone to line you up with specific job descriptions.  Also called key strengths.

TARGET COMPANIES AND GEOGRAPHY

This is perhaps the most important aspect of the SoloSheet networking biography when used at a career networking event.  When fellow job seekers know target companies , it is much easier for them to help.  You may be remembered as “the marketing person looking at Pepsi and Heinz”.  Here’s how to choose your target companies and how to penetrate your target companies.

So . . .

In an ideal world, there are 10 people walking out of a career networking event with your SoloSheet.  It is marked up, key words are circled and a few stars are drawn next to a few of your target companies.

So with this networking biography, your career network now has a solid method to keep track of you, a tangible way to remember who you are and, importantly, has an actionable list of organizations where you’d like to work.

Easy for your career network = results for you.

If you’d like to see a finished example, write a comment below and I’ll send you mine in word format.  Be sure to leave your e-mail address in the form!

  • Yo Tim,
    I like the idea,especially as a tool to let your network know.
    Many friends are emailing me their CVs, and in some cases it’s clear what their objective is. Yet many CVs are a lot stronger on record (i.e. past) than objective (i.e. current interests).Thank you!
    Thank you & I’d like to see the 2007 one…and the 2009 one should you plan to update it 🙂

  • Seems like the old resume formats are based on ways people used to read, consume and file information. We all get afraid to vary from the norm and so we sacrifice our ability to communicate clearly and position with strength. I have used some aspects of your thinking in my current resume. It’s the old form vs. function debate …
    Send me your filled-out template?

    Thanks for providing the template and the great ideas, Tim! I think this looks to be a tool that helps to get down all the details in a good format. I’d sure be interested in taking a look at one that is filled out. Thanks again for the tips and strategy!

  • Hi Tim, I heard the mentioning of a solosheet before, but honestly, did not pay too much attention to it.
    The amount of diferent things you hear that you “must” have for a successful job search these days can be overwhelming. I paid attention now (to you), and agree that I probably need to have one.
    Would love to see yours.
    Thank you.

    Thanks for sharing. You identified a lot of great tips for the resume and how job searching and networking is taking place.

  • Rodrigo Marques Barbosa

    Hi Tim,
    Great article! A proof that less is more.
    I had two experiences in the past that endorse your post: a seasoned headhunter back in 1997 was surprised and questioned me about why I had’n sent him a one-page resume. Since then I always kept that concept in mind. Secondly, I learned a lot about one-page reports and so during the time I was with Honda Motor in Brazil. It is quite an experience to observe and learn from the nipponic way of doing things. They have an amazing capacity of being concise yet very profound in their presentations. It is all about selling an idea in one page only as a result of deep researches and analysis.
    By the way, please send me your template. I will work on getting mine ready right away.
    Thank you!

  • Lainie G.

    The concept is similar to the verbal 90-second elevator speech except this is a snapshot on paper . . . I’m interested, would you please send The Solo Sheet to me. Thank you.

  • @Lainie – Your is on the way. Yes, could also be used for your elevator outline.
    @Rodrigo – Yes, as the resumes come pouring in to a recruiter they would appreciate a quicker look at you – especially if it is your best examples. Then you can follow up with a more complete history as necessary.
    @Shona – Need your e-mail address . . . happy to send mine! You can send me an e-mail direct vis my “about page” on the blog.
    So glad that everyone is finding this tool helpful!

  • Hi Tim-
    Wayne John here from our old Indian Guides group.
    I like your idea of the solo sheet. Where would you suggest placing the education information-near the top as some do or after the work history?
    I’m trying to determine the value of placing specific target/dream companies there at the bottom. I would agree with placing the dream areas for possible relocation is good, but what value do you believe in placing company names on the actual resume? Truth be told, I have never seen that, but am open to the idea.
    Being a solo recruiter, I see many resumes every day and few jump out. Some I see have a body where the total word count is twenty and others six pages long.
    Perhaps it’s time to rethink resume writing. Thanks for your ideas, Tim.

  • Wayne –
    Great to hear from you!
    Since the SoloSheet is primarily a networking tool, I did not include education. For most people I know, education is on the resume for hiring credibility more than immediate fit with a job. Because it is a “one-sheet” some things need to be sacrificed. I chose education. Others may choose something else . . .
    Again, since this is not a resume replacement (more of a companion), the target companies are there to tell your network how to remember you and to provide them with more data so they can send you jobs that fit your objectives.

  • Terrie – Great question. If you are new to town, it is still important to have very clear job objectives (perception is as important as reality sometimes). Even if you are not 100% sure, find a few local companies in your industry and include them on the target list. Worst case, you look prepared and by having a target list, make it easy for people to help you. Over the next few weeks, you can add or update your list. How to find companies? One of my old-fashioned favorites is to go for a drive or ride your bike (the green/healthy option) around town – it’s amazing the brand names you see. Get a list from your local Chamber of Commerce or network with others – many have a company list by key city.

  • Hi Mindy – Thanks for your feedback. Again, the objective is mainly there for networking and i think it’s crucial that your network know what you are targeting. I agree it is less valuable when using it with companies and do not have an objective on my regular resume for just the reason you stated. Thanks!

    Thank you for sharing your valuable insights and tools. I like the concept of including current objectives and not just focusing on past achievements.

    Interesting, my “short sheet” looks much like your SoloSheet minus the Work Philosophy section. The last time I used it, nearly 10 years ago, it was a hit and Work Philosophy was not real an in vogue idea, but sure seems to be a good idea now, and something I will include.
    I have been hired twice since the last time I used the short sheet without ever having to deliver paper…
    thanx for the thoughts

    @Jerry – Short, sweet and to the point is correct! Especially as folks are competing with so many others. You have to stand out and be uniquely interesting to your target companies . . .

  • @Gloria – I’m not a big promoter of markedly different versions. For me, the real value here is in telling your network about your specific job objectives. If you have more than one industry, you can include a second one on the same SoloSheet. Beyond that, the risk is you look unsure and can potentially confuse your network over time. But, at the end of the day, create what you feel comfortable with!

  • Amy – I have not yet written about Visual CV (but it is on my list!). Overall, I think that any online tools you can use to help recruiters find you and quickly learn your strengths are worthwhile. Visual CV can be especially helpful if it allows you to better illustrate your achievements and skills (with images, pictures or other visual aids). There are some careers and industries where that can mean a lot to someone reviewing your abilities.

  • Hi Tim,
    I’m very interested in the Solo Sheet – could you please send me your 2007 version?
    It seems that this market demands great flexibility in terms of target companies – and I’ve expanded my search significantly. Do you think it’s limiting to have a relatively small, finite list of target companies?
    Thanks for this – and all the info on your site.

  • Hi Susan – Happy to send it – just need an e-mail! Concerning your question, I recommend a shorter, focused list of companies for networking. Easier for people to remember and it provides good sample companies for people to use when looking at jobs. For example, you can say “Technology companies like Microsoft” instead of naming every one in the industry. Have a longer list, yes, but on your FlashCard, SoloSheet and in your 30/60 second intro speech, I recommend keeping your list shorter for more impact.

    Hi Tim,
    Great idea! Can I get a copy of the one you put together in 2007? Years ago I put together a matrix with topics across the top (e.g., Project Management, Training, Leadership, Process Management, etc.) and companies/dates down the left side. In the cells you can jot the names of the relevant work project so you can quickly look down the Training column and see all the work projects you did related to training — a quick way to study before an interview. I only have a hard copy or I would share with you, but you probably get the idea.

  • Hi Lori – The SoloSheet is on the way! In terms of your positioning statement, I like the energy but would like to it be more specific to what you do. It sounds a little generic (champion, change, improvement). You want the reader to see where you fit vs. this one which is a bit of a catch-all. Good luck!

    I would appreciate it if you share your solosheet and I am particularly interested in the positioning statement.
    thanks again,

    Hi Tim,
    Often I left a networking group meet with so many cards and don’t remember which person is looking for what. Recently I came across a position that would be perfect for a fellow I met a year ago at a networking meet and I didn’t remember the name although I have a lot of cards. This is really a good idea for the SoloSheet. Please email me your 2007 because I am networking actively. Thanks, Julie

    Reading this is very timely for me. I was just working on something similar in a powerpoint template with my picture as well. I was thinking of using it in my personal marketing brochure that I’m thinking of creating. Having the one page on the front, 2 page resume inside and perhaps a cover letter type of note on the back. Let me know what you think of this. I also see the value of using just the 1-pager for networking events. Please send me yours. thanks! Denise

    @Denise – I think the SoloSheet is more powerful as a networking and introductory tool than simlpy adding to a personal portfolio that also includes your resume. However, if it gets people to read on, then OK!

  • Hi Tracy – Just sent it off to you. Good luck!

  • Great post. It should be noted that many professional resume writers and career centers, including Harvard Business School, does not recommend placing a Career Objective within the resume, but rather within the cover letter. As your intent may be slightly different from a traditional resume, it could work here. No recruiter or HR pro is the same, so no approach is absolute.

  • Thanks for your thoughts James. I agree that a career objective does not belong in a resume. However, I think it belongs nicely in a networking bio. Since you are needing to share your specific job search objectives with your network (the main purpose for the SoloSheet), it provides tangible data to those looking to help . . .

    Great idea in general.

    Suggestion for a little refine – change the sequence of the information flow as the follows.

    Name – 4-6 word positioning statement
    contact info following name
    Objective (what you are after)
    including career, organization, geography all in one place
    Competencies (what you are offering)
    bullets, keywords catching eyes and hearts
    Accomplishments (optional)
    quantitative and action verbs
    Experience (where you acquired the declared competencies and accomplishment)
    list of date-position-employer
    Education and Training
    list of designations, degrees, relevant courses, and other professional activities

  • Hi Claudia – Thank you for your suggestions. Does your version still fit on one page. That was my biggest challenge (i.e. what stays and what goes)! Appreciate your comment.

My email address is dgerm002@odu.edu.

  • Just sent you a copy. The SoloSheet was created primarily as a networking tool. A way to establish or reinforce your value with those who may help you find a lead or contact at a target company. So while there may be cases where a recruiter would appreciate a shorter version of your story, that is usually not what they want from you. It is called “resume companion” because it is a tool to support your pitch. It does not replace a resume.

    This is a great idea… While I am a firm believer of networking for my next position, it hadn’t occurred to me that a separate, specially tailored sheet specific designed for those with whom one would network would be necessary! But I see its worth! Please send your SoloSheet! Thank you!
