6 Seconds

Click here for article – Is Your Resume 6-Second Worthy?

I will admit it.  Recruiters really do spend only seconds on your resume.  It’s not you.  It’s your resume.  We scan for pertinent skills, expertise, and related industry exposure.  Make your resume easy to read, easy to grab information from, and draw my eyes to something I want to see.

Entice me.

It’s really like dating.  How much time do you spend gazing at someone before you determine s/he is worth a conversation with?  Not long.  In that conversation, how quickly do you determine if you continue talking to this person?  Fairly quickly.

Make your resume intriguing.  Make it your own.  Cookie cutter resumes are boring and a dime-a-dozen.  

Now… tell me about yourself.
