How To Make a Resume
Good resume writing (and proper resume format) is an art form and can make the difference between getting lost in the pile and being invited in for an interview.
(Here’s the good news. We’ve dedicated an entire blog article just to resume format and the best practices for 2017 and beyond! Click here to head over to that article now!)
The problem is, a lot of people don’t see it as an art form…rather an obligation. Most people look at writing a resume as just something you have to do to get a job.
There’s no time put into it. No thought. And certainly no enthusiasm.
Just a bunch of stuff thrown on a page with the expectation that if the company really want to hire you, they should be able to look at that mess and pull what they need out of it and bring you in based off of that.
Research has proven that hiring managers only bring in about 1 person per 200 resumes received.
Those are some pretty miserable odds!
Time to step up your game and go from one of the 200 to that one out of 200!
