4 Reasons Recruiters Choose YOUR Resume



How Does Your Resume Stand Out? (in a good way)?  (No, really, we want to know!)

1.      Clean format with ONE FONT.

2.      List any awards, quotas, and metrics (to set yourself apart from others).

3.      No need for UNNECESSARY info. (No one gives a Sh%t, Helen, that you know CPR.)

4.      A Driver’s License is NOT a professional license.                                 

                                                                                                            –   Stephanie

1.      The resume shows and lines up exactly for what we are looking for (in a candidate).

2.     Has keywords that our system picks up in our search.

3.     Has a Statement/Objective section that shows what the candidate is looking for.

                                                                                                            –   Rob 

1.     Organization- Can I easily read through the resume? Does it look organized and follow a format all throughout? 

2.   Easily Recognizable Figures – The resume would have numbers, keywords, and examples outlining their success. I like to see your LinkedIn Profile URL, as well, it helps put a face to the name and verify their connections.

3.   Education/Certification – At the end of the day, you have to be able to fulfill the role. It helps if your resume is tailored to the basic requirements of the position. (You can have more than one resume for different roles you are applying for.)

4.     Evidence of Suitability to the Work Environment – I like to see some reference to your personality type, and how they have used that to their advantage in past roles.

                                                                                                          –   Catherine

1.     Neat and organized.

2.    (Show) Job Stability 

3.    Descriptive- I like to see what you actually did at your job, not just that you worked there. The more in-depth the better.

4.     Fit the job description of the position you are applying for.

                                                                                                           –  Jenn

1.      Easily read, one focus, one goal, and keep it simple.

2.     Use job titles that make sense: We know you think of yourself as a sandwich artist, which makes you feel more important, but if you are selling sandwiches, we aren’t buying.

3.      Your Objective/Summary should match what job you are applying for. “Help me, help you!” (I can’t help you apply for a sales position if your objective is to sell Miniature Crochet Turtle Hats on Etsy.)

4.      Don’t lie on your resume. We are like your mom, we always know.

                                                                                                          –   Christine
