Common (But Important) Resume Questions Answered

 

I get it. You haven't needed a resume for most of your career. 

You have been recruited, sought after, promoted or your friend recommended you for your current job.

But now you find the promotions harder to get.

There is more competition for the interviews - even if you are recommended to the company by your buddy.

Interviews are not as automatic.

And your resume is now more important.

But you never really had to do one, or if you do have one, you never really had to depend on it.

Until now.

And now you have questions.

Questions like: 

  • How should a resume in 2018 differ from a resume from 2008 (which may be the last time you needed one)?
  • What are some common major mistakes you see people make on their resumes?
  • When you first glance at a resume, what makes a good impression and what makes a bad impression? 
  • How important is formatting/visuals versus the actual information on your resume? What's the best way to format and still make it past the applicant tracking systems?
  • How many years should someone go back on their resume? How many pages should it be? 
  • How creative should you get with your resume, in terms of font, formatting, etc? Should this be based on what job/industry you're in?
