Studies have shown that the average recruiter scans a resume for 6 seconds before deciding if the applicant is a good fit for the role.
Are you making the right first impression with a prospective employer?
I’m sharing with you my 1-2-3 approach on how I help my clients STAND OUT against the intense competition and ensure they land an interview.
#1: Expertise is clearly defined by X, Y and Z and is in bold.
#2: Unique value proposition is condensed and quickly summarizes the strengths of the candidate. The reality is that the readers eyes gravitate to the bold titles.
#3: Key highlights celebrate the exceptional results that the client delivered; quantified real-world results with strong verb tenses. This is where you ‘hook’ them!
