Refresh Your Resume: A Crash Course! 


Throughout my 15+ years as an HR leader, I can tell you first-hand that the stats are accurate: ​​​​​​​​
Recruiters and hiring leaders will skim your resume for 6-ish seconds. ​​​​​​​​
If it doesn’t make an impression, you will get passed over. Unless, of course, strategic relationship building is the focus of your job search (which I highly recommend) 😉

So, how do you make a lasting impression?

Today, I’m going to walk you through: 

+The goal of your resume 
+When it’s time to update your resume 
+The two main components I focus on when helping others with their resumes
+The major sections of your resume
+And then, we will wrap up with a handful of resources to help you stand out!

Key Takeaways From Today’s Episode

  • The goal of your resume is to make it as easy as possible for the reader to know who you are, what you do, and what you’re looking for 
  • The best time to update your resume is after you’re crystal clear on what you want to do next: the role, industry, and you’re top companies  
  • The two main components when updating your resume are Design and Content 
  • In terms of content, think about skills and experiences related to where you want to go and pack them with accomplishments
  • When it comes to resume design, consider the personality of the companies you’re applying to and keep it sharp + easy to read
