|Presenting an Outstanding Resume|
IS YOUR RESUME BEING READ
or is it being put aside on indefinite hold? Why are some resumes more effective than others? As strange as this sounds, most resumes are written without a clear understanding of their true purpose. Simply put, a good resume should motivate management to interview you. An effective resume will generate interest, not just provide information.
Hiring managers and recruiters are inundated by resumes. One ad can yield 1,000 responses within a week. Your resume may only get a quick review before a decision is made whether to consider you for the job and to read further. For this reason, how your resume is presented can be just as vital as what your resume says.
