Event Details

We will talk through the basic principles of writing resumes which are easy for recruiters to read. We will be teaching you from our perspective as professional recruiters, who as part of our careers, have looked at far more resumes than human beings should have to endure.

As a generalization, when we have looked at resumes from job fairs, from 30% down to 2% of the resumes are easy for recruiters to read.

The rest, which are not easy to read, often don’t get read.

While resumes are just 2% of your job search, they are often essential for getting that first interview. We will discuss what recruiters are looking for, why they are looking for it and how to make sure they see it on your resume.

1. We will laugh at some of the exceptions to the general principles of resume writing.
2. We will explain why you can get various differing advice on your resume. If you understand where the advice is coming from, you will realize that there is not much difference in the advice.
3. We will spend time talking about Applicant Tracking Systems and how they change the way you do your resume.

If you are willing to have your resume critiqued as part of this seminar, please email it to [masked]

From time to time we have attendees make the changes we recommend and immediately get unstuck in their job search.
