The Anatomy of a Great Resume

THE ANATOMY OF

A Great Resume

DOES YOUR RESUME GET HIT ON ALL THE TIME?



You've Got Some Competition Honey!



1 in 4 HR managers receive 50 resumes per job listing



1 in 10 receive 100 resumes per job listing





WHAT ARE HR MANAGERS LOOKING FOR IN CANDIDATES?



77% say relevant experience

48% say specific accomplishments

41% say whether or not the resume was

customized to the open position





HR MANAGERS ALSO LOOK FOR KEYWORDS IN RESUMES:



Problem solving - - -56%

Leadership-----44%

Oral/written

communication------40%

Team building -------33%

Performance and

productivity

improvement -----------31%





Writing a great

resume does not

mean you should

follow all the

rules you hear



Every resume is

a one-of-a-kind

marketing

communication



It should be

appropriate to

your situation

and do exactly

what you want

it to do



Pump up that Resume



3 TIPS TO MAKE IT SEXY



1. SUMMARIZE!

(BABBLING IS NOT HOT)

Begin with a summary on your unique value

Tell employers who you are

Talk about your skills and quallメᄆcatlons

A good summary can be used as the basis for this interviewer favorite: ハラモTell me about yourselfハラン



2. CONFIDENCE!

(EVERYONE IS ATTRACTED TO CONFIDENCE!)

Talk about your accomplishments

Tell employers how you���ve made a difference in

current/previous roles

This is not the time for humility.



3. WATCH YOUR LANGUAGE!

(SO SELF ABSORBED_NO THANKS)

Don���t start sentences with I, We or Our

Don���t even use full sentences

Bullet points with strong actions verbs have more

impact



4. KEYWORDS ARE KEY

(TALK NERDY TO ME)

Awful truth: often, resumes are nor even read

Resumes are often scanned either by a person or a machine

They are looking for keywords that match their hiring criteria

Use keywords from the job listing



That's such a turn off



COMMON

RESUME

MISTAKES



Ima Loser - - - Unprofessional title & email address

2hot2handle@cantgetajob.com



Website: ilovedrugs.com- - - - Links to inappropriate content

Recruiters will check your online profiles, so keep it clean or don���t add the link



Obejective: I want a fun job where I don���t actually have to work at all. - - -> Objectives tend to focus too much on what you want rather than what you can offer



Experience: Pubic Financial Advisor ----->Poofread! ...Proofread again!



TMI

What you exclude is just as

important as what you include <--------- Intramurial Poop Champion ���08-���09



Do NOT rely of spellcheck <- - - - see?

Spellcheck doesn���t always get it right. Have a second set of eyes read your resume







Sales Ass.���09-���11 -----> Improper Abbreviations

Don���t embarrass yourself



Education: Party University Hairy Pitt High School

- - -> Why list high school? If you have any college education, don���t list high school



Stay grounded

Make sure items are relevant to the position





AIN���T GOT NO GAME..RESUME BLOOPERS I



ハラモCareer break in 1999 to renovate my horseハラン



Hobbies: ハラモenjoy cooking Chinese and Italiansハラン



2001 summer Voluntary work for taking care of the elderly and vegetable peopleハラン



���I���m intrested to here more about that. I���m working

today in a furniture factory as a drawerハラン



ハラモI am about to enrol on a Business and Finance Degree with the Open University. I feel that this qualification will prove detrimental to me for future success.ハラン
