I was recently asked why I did not include a date of availability as a “title” line on a resume. In response, I needed to explain that this data did not define the applicant’s candidacy.

Rather, his credentials, areas of strongest expertise, desired job objective, and skill did…therefore, these items took up the most valuable “resume real estate” on his documents.

Success tip: data that strengthens your case belongs in the most prominent position. It’s all about career marketing strategy!
