Polish up your #Resume in less than 15 minutes

Polish up your #Resume in less than 15 minutes | Effective Resumes | Scoop.it
Cruise Line Class's insight:

Two quick ways to amplify your resume, and to improve your chances of your resume being seen by a human is:

 

1.  Include the job title of the position you are applying for in your resume.  If at all possible that means that the target position you are applying for should be strategically placed in your resume.  You can accommodate as part of your summary position statement at the top of your resume or place as part of the job experience. 

 

Hint:  I am not suggesting that you include an objective at the top of your resume or to include a title of a position that you do not have any experience with.  I assume if you are applying for the position, that you would have experience with the job responsibilities:)

 

2.  Don't just tell me what you did, show me the results!

 

Action verbs, measures, and numbers are important…so make sure that your resume doesn’t just state what you did – share the results you achieved while in the role!

 

PS – Live on Purpose!

Mirko D'Isidoro - FreelanceWebDesigner.it's curator insight, February 27, 2013 4:15 AM

Il nuovo LinkedIN Resume Builder è una fantastica web app che ti permette con un account LinkedIn di creare curriculum dall'aspetto professionale, scegliendo tra una serie di modelli già pronti.
 

Quest'applicazione prende i dati dal tuo account LinkedIn per estrarre e classificare tutte le informazioni del profilo.

 

Quando inizi ad usarlo, hai la possibilità di editare e modificare uno qualsiasi dei dati che appariranno nel curriculum finale e puoi personalizzare anche i campi pre-impostati che verrano visualizzati.
 

Ci sono circa una dozzina di modelli diversi tra cui scegliere, e la mia prima impressione è che sembrano tutti abbastanza buoni.
 

Il tuo nuovo curriculum può essere condiviso su tutti i principali media sociali e tramite un URL diretto, e può anche essere salvato ed esportato in formato PDF.
 

Trovo Resume Builder di LinkedIn un ottimo strumento per creare un curriculum aggiornato e dall'aspetto professionale, in una manciata di secondi.
 

PS: Ci possono essere alcuni problemi d'impaginazione, come vedrai durante l'esportazione in PDF, ma questi possono essere aggirati facilmente.

Sono sicuro che ci saranno miglioramenti con aggiornamenti futuri.
 

Gratis da usare. Voto: 9.

The Best And Worst Words To Use On Your #Résumé

The Best And Worst Words To Use On Your #Résumé | Effective Resumes | Scoop.it
One recent study showed that recruiters spend all of 6.25 seconds looking at a candidate’s résumé before deciding whether he or she is fit for a job. A new survey of 2,200 hiring managers and human resource staffers by jobs website CareerBuilder shows that your résumé may get a bit [...]
Cruise Line Class's insight:

Please do take a minute to read the study!


I love that the article stated that the average time recruiters spend looking at resumes is 6.25 seconds.  I would always tell those who I was helping that if your resume is lucky enough to get past the systems and make it to a human...your resume has 6 seconds to catch the attention of the recruiter.


What does that mean to you?  Review your resume and make sure that the most important information is front and center.  Tweak your resume to ensure that a quick glance it is evident that you meet the qualifications of the position, and are a fit for the position, and the company.


Remember the job of your resume is to set you apart from the hundreds of other candidates to land you an interview on the first round.  Review your resume, would it past the 6 second test?


Hope the article and the tips help.  Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!

Replace Career Objectives With Qualifications for a Better #Resume

Replace Career Objectives With Qualifications for a Better #Resume | Effective Resumes | Scoop.it
The "career objectives" statement is dead so don't waste a recruiter's time by listing it at the start, says Ruben Quintero, Medicare Broker Relations Manager. Instead, state the most pertinent qualifications for the job.
Cruise Line Class's insight:

People often ask me why are career objectives out?

 

If you look at this way:  Career objectives are all about you -- what you want out of your career. 

 

A resume should be written to get the attention of the employer and hiring manager.  That means it needs to be all about them -- what you can do for their department and company.

 

So replace the career objective with a qualifications paragraph.  The paragraph should concisely summarize and package your experience, qualifications, and skills to fit the requirements of the job posting.

 

Hope this helps you land that job!  Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!
