Writing Resumes Recruiters Want to Read

Recruiters get thousands of resumes. Typically a recruiter spends about 3 seconds per resume.

Unless your resume is written so that it is easy for a recruiter to read, it could easily be overlooked.

This session will show you what an easy to read resume looks like to increase the likelihood of your resume getting read thoroughly by recruiters.

We will also spend some time looking at each person’s resume and giving some specific advice so that recruiters will be more likely to read your resume.

Please bring multiple copies of your resume with you.

If you bring your resume on a flash drive, we can put it on the computer and give more detailed comments.

Rev Up Your Resume

with Rebecca Page

Your resume is the most essential marketing document for your job search. Yes, as a job seeker, you’re not a marketer and sales person. YOU are your product.

Recruiters score professionally written resumes 60% higher and agree they are 40% more organized and readable. Let’s Rev Up Your Resume, so you get those interviews.

We’ll review:

-Your Value Proposition: What makes you stand out from the pack? How to keep the hiring manager’s attention with dynamic, focused achievement statements.

-Relevant Experience: Not every job or skill applies to the new career you’re seeking.

-Design and Format: Specific structures are better than others.

-Situational Strategies: Do you have a gap between jobs? Are you switching professions? Are you just starting your career? These all require unique strategies.

This session will be interactive, so please bring your resume. Some time will be spent for 1-on-1 resume review.
