5 Top Resume Suggestions Made to Job-Seekers

On June 28th I participated in the Northern California Silicon Valley Career Strategies Forum event as a résumé reviewer; we had over 200 job-seekers in attendance.  After reviewing many résumés that day, I  want to share with you the top five résumé suggestions I made to various attendees.

You can  take a look at my youtube video to hear the details, and I will also list them briefly below.

FIVE Top Suggestions in a Nutshell

  1. Don’t try to make one résumé fit all jobs.
  2. Make sure you use the first page of your résumé most effectively.
  3. Let go of the objective statement, and use a career profile or a summary of qualifications instead.
  4. Be more compelling in describing work experience .
  5. Format your text so it is easy  for the reader to view; this pertains to font sizes, line spaces, margin size, etc.

I hope you take time to watch the video.  I believe you will find the information to be useful. Feel free to ask questions or leave feedback below.

~ Blessings!
