YOU are a Product Too!
Your Resume should be a Simple Sales Sheet that helps create desire to hire that product.
Will your resume pass the '3 Second' resume test? And will it show your true value and get you noticed?
That may be the difference in being considered for your next career opportunity and getting that next interview -or going unnoticed.
The right attention to detail in the formatting of your most valuable accomplishments will help make you the standout that gets noticed.
The Secret that You May Not Like
As hiring managers and HR professionals get busier and busier with more being added to their plates every day, the time allotted to looking at a resume and making a value judgement during the 'sorting process' gets very, very short.
It can be just 3 to 5 seconds.
Right or wrong, correctly or incorrectly, value judgements about you are being made that will effect your ability to effectively compete to get that next interview.
Don't leave it to chance. Be sure to work through your Resume Renovation and focus your value –then, be sure that your formatting also frames your value so that it's easily absorbed at first glance.
