Are You Ready for a Resume Refresh? Read This First!

Did you know? You have 6 seconds to make an impression with a recruiter. It’s true, the average amount of time a recruiter spends on your resume is S-I-X seconds. Let’s make it count!

Throughout my 15+ years as an HR leader, I can tell you first-hand that these stats are accurate; recruiters and hiring leaders will skim your resume — if it doesn’t make an impression, you will get passed over. The goal of your resume is to make it as easy as possible for the reader to know you’re the BEST person for the job. Articulating your experience and career aspirations on one piece of paper is both an art and a science. It’s especially challenging when you’re in your own head all.the.time. Outlined below are FOUR guidelines to refresh your resume, stand out, and grab that recruiter’s attention.
