Executive Resume Review
A good resume is more than a word template and a handful of bullet points; it’s your first opportunity to state your case and sell your skills. It’s the last thing many candidates consider, but it’s the first thing a prospective employer (or recruiter) sees. Our executive resume review is based on our experience sorting through thousands of resumes and will help your resume perform better in a few keys areas.
Getting To The Point
The reality is, most people (your Recruiter included) don’t read resumes. They scan them, looking for nuggets such as dollar signs, percentages, references to club trips or over achiever awards, names of large customer deals won or strategic partners signed.
Selling Your Accomplishments
A common mistake occurs when too much of a resume’s content details job responsibilities. Examine your resume. Does it describe what you are responsible for doing, or does it describe what you have done?
Staying On Message
People tend to forget that a resume is a document with a very specific purpose; to give whoever is reading it the key points of your employment history as efficiently as possible. Design elements or extraneous content just make it harder for the reader to find the information that actually matters.
