Many employers or recruiters have a checklist if you will of what the position requires and the competencies for the ideal candidate.  Resist the urge to make yourself look like a CEO when you are applying for an entry level position.

 

My tips: Dummy proof your resume!

 

1.  Target your summary and competencies at the top of your resume to reflect the experience the employer is seeking

2.  Highlight the experience and skills that are relevant to the position you are applying for.  (make them top and center)

3.  If possible, re-purpose your accomplishments with language that is industry language

This is such a super article!

 

I can share with our readers until I am blue in the face how imporant it is to target and fine tune a resume; if you resume is seen at all -- only seconds are spent. 

 

That means that a decision is made in seconds whether you are a fit or not.  The first page of your resume is vital.  That is why the summary needs to showcase the experience that is relevant to the position in the words and phrases that mirror the industry and position.

 

What they found from the study of recruiters:

In the short time that they spend with your resume, the study showed recruiters will look at your name, current title and company, current position start and end dates, previous title and company, previous position start and end dates, and education.
