Your resume is one of the most important documents you own. It is the tool that helps pave your future. It needs to contain the right mix of information to sell you to potential employers in the most effective and appropriate way.
Research shows that potential employers give less than 10 seconds to deciding whether they will read your resume in detail or whether your resume goes into the ‘NO’ pile.
Resumes need to be more than a typed list of your employment history. In a highly competitive job market, employers make recruitment decisions on more than just skills and experience. They want to know how candidates will add value to their organization and fit into their team and culture.
A Successful Resume blends your professional profile with your unique abilities. Your resume clearly and concisely details who you are and what you have to offer. Most importantly, it needs to be keyword rich and meets the requirements of any applicant tracking software.
