Do I Need a Resume for an Internal Interview?
As someone looking for internal advancement, you’re definitely in a position of power compared to the outside candidates: you are familiar with the structure of the company and its values, and you’ve had a chance to prove yourself already.
You would still need to write a resume (and possibly even a cover letter for the internal promotion)—just a slightly different one than usual. Here's how to do it:
- Focus on your professional accomplishments within the company and your growth.
- Craft a personal mission statement showing what you have in mind for your new role.
- Tailor your resume to the new responsibilities, showing how your previous experience makes a logical stepping stone for the future role.
