Your resume needs to pass the skim test. Dust off your resume and ask yourself:
- Can a hiring manager see my main accomplishments within 10 to 15 seconds?
- Does critical information jump off the page?
- Is my resume concise in 2 pages or less?
KEEP YOUR RESUME BRIEF:
- Objective: List the Job Post title just as it’s written, tell employers what you can do for them, not what you want from them
- Limit History: Keep your job history within the last 10 years, include month/year
- Customize: Only include information relevant to your goal. Target the resume to fit each job description (Yes, this means a new resume for each new job)
- Paraphrase: Select only key accomplishments with each job listed in your history
- References? Have current reference list with phone number ready for the interview. Don’t submit unless asked.
- Edit, Edit, Edit! Remove unneeded phrases like “responsible for” or “duties include” this doesn’t tell them what you actually did, just what was expected of you
- Proof Read: Have someone else proofread your resume, spell check doesn’t catch everything!
