"Send me your resume"

Golden words you hope to hear, but are you ready?

""No problem“, I said. Truth be told, my resume was one year old and needed some updating. But, that’s OK, given the changes were quite minor as I’ve been with the same firm for awhile now. It never hurts to keep employment dialogues open, even if you don’t currently plan on leaving your company. It’s a courtesy to them, and you never know when someone wants to pay you big bucks for a guaranteed length of time to join their organization! It’s generally I who evaluate resumes, so it was kind of exciting to update my own to send to someone else..


7 Second Rule

The average amount of time a reviewer spends on your resume is 7 seconds!

It’s because there are so many resumes to look at due to overwhelming competition, and also because HR staff are very very busy. The top half of your resume must attract attention and clearly stated.


One Page Resume

A resume longer than one page, tends to get tossed in the trash 400%

Having a one page resume shows that you are concise, clear, and to the point. With only 7 seconds spent on a resume, employers do not want irrelevant data. Focus upon what you have done recently, your relevant education, and an interesting fact about you. You will be asked more during the interview, so wait until then. The goal is to 'get' an interview.


Don't Get Fancy

Unless you are an artist or graphic designer, there’s no need to worry about design

Unless you are an artist or graphic designer, there’s no need to overdo the design of a resume. The basics of contact info, the recent two or three jobs, your responsibilities, education, and hobbies. for example. Using titles and bullet points can make a one page resume very easy to read and navigate (in those precious 7 seconds). The type of font you are using, or the type of paper have little, if any, impact. Content is significant.
