Are you ready to learn valuable tips and take action in crafting your resume? Whether your resume needs to be built from scratch or it simply just needs a refresh, this is the guide for you! L&I’s “Ultimate Guide to Crafting Your Resume” guide aims to help you get one step closer to succeeding in your job interview process.
DID YOU KNOW THAT EMPLOYERS ONLY SPEND ABOUT SIX SECONDS READING A RESUME? THAT’S RIGHT – SIX SECONDS.
If this tells you anything, you need to grab a recruiter’s attention the very second he or she begins looking at your resume. And more importantly, you want to keep those eyes on your resume! In this guide, I share tips I’ve learned over the years as to what makes a resume impressive enough to land interviews and get hired for that dream job.
I’ve reviewed hundreds of resumes over the years. I’ve taken part in critiquing resumes at numerous professional events, evaluating resumes prior to interviewing potential candidates at the companies I’ve worked for, and reviewing resumes of people who trusted and valued my feedback.
I’ve also attended events and workshops myself where I’ve gained key learnings about resume building to ultimately land reputable jobs at Fortune 500 companies in my career. One of those companies was named the #1 World’s Best Workplace in 2018, according to Fortune. I haven’t been hired to work for companies such as these simply by chance. It was my resume first and foremost that helped to open doors and land interviews.
In this resume guide, you will find:
- A four-chapter resume guide full of credible tips
- A list of impactful action verbs to take advantage of in your resume
- A compilation of resources for additional career-specific advice and information
