What Your Resume Says - Chapter 1
We take 20 example resumes and give you our analysis of what they say to a recruiter.
This cast started as a question: how could we help people understand how their resume is read by a recruiter. We know what you want to say – and we know how that’s interpreted. We needed some examples, so we put out a request. Over 100 listeners volunteered to have their resume critiqued.
For this cast, we picked 2. We’ve anonymised the resumes by giving them names from characters from The Walton’s and by removing phone numbers and addresses. Otherwise, they’re just as we received them.
We’re not going to go over the format of resumes in this cast. You know our recommendations there (and if you don’t, you can find them in ‘Your Resume Stinks’). For these casts, we’re just looking at the content.
