The Truth about Your Resume

Thursday, February 09, 2006

I have a sneaky feeling not everyone could pass the quiz: "How good-or-bad-is your resume?" At the risk of using a very complex and uncommon quote, I must say, "Sometimes the truth hurts." But often, we need the truth to inspire and move us to action.
The truth is: A Recruiting Director typically spends only 15 seconds looking at a resume! The truth is: A Recruiting Director may think your current resume is best served as a lightweight basketball that she shoots into the trash can. I know it hurts to hear that, but check out the next resume makeover tip that will help you win points with any Recruiting Director.

Resume Makeover Tip #2: Drop the excess weight! Unless you have over 10 years experience, your resume should only be ONE page. Maximize your space and use a professional format to present your "15 seconds of life" on ONE page. Don't use long sentences and paragraphs. Recruiting Directors like it simple: bullets.
