Resume Advice

Have you ever been to a recruiter who told you that your resume needed revamping and gave you some pointers you thought were helpful?  To their suggestion, you go ahead and make the recommended changes.  As a good job searcher, you  register with other staffing firms and other recruiters tell you that your resume needs a facelift as well.  The problem is, they tell you something completely different than recruiter #1.  Now you're really confused and don't know whose advice to take.

Truth be told, there are no right or wrong ways to write a resume, but there are better ways.  If you've been given contradictory resume advice, use your judgement and go with what feels comfortable and makes sense.  Remember, your resume should highlight your accomplishments and grab the attention of the reader within 30 seconds.

Stay tuned for my upcoming posts on resume tips including objective vs. summary, format, length, content, accomplishments.
