Actionable advice - a good read.
This is incredibly on point.
This is great advice but leans more towards a CV rather than a resume. Also the advice about listing all jobs is good policy but I differ about listing jobs that shows strength; never leave gaps in the time line.
Great article. Very concise and gives hoo advise. Remember, it only works if you follow the advise.
Very insightful tips! Especially in a market where hundreds may apply; you’re sometimes only given one shot—the resume—to grab their attention enough to obtain an actual interview!
Extremely good reference!
This is a truly helpful and concise article. I’ve assisted clients with resumes for years and had responsibility for final reviews of others, and this article presents its advice incredibly well. If you’re looking for a new job, overlay the author’s advice on your resume and see how it stacks up. I find the worst thing about resumes is how outdated and stale they become; a little freshening can make all the difference to a jaded hiring manager or CEO who’s seen far too many cookie-cutter resumes for a position.
#2 especially caught my attention. Granted that I nearing a measly five years in the professional workforce, I feel that expressing achievements as opposed to responsibilities was not particularly encouraged in resumes until recently. Perhaps I am just beginning to embark on the job roles which give me the opportunity to truly shine as an individual — I am grateful for this fact!
Great read, even as a reminder.
