In today’s resume tip, I talk about what to do when you’ve got a ton of experience and why. Reality is that your resume has about 30 seconds to impress me enough that I want to spend more time researching you.
Yesterday a friend asked about the relationship between their resume and their LinkedIn profile. I thought I’d cover that off here in a resume tip.
I believe that LinkedIn is an extension of your resume. Your resume is the condensed view of you, the marketing brochure tailored to the job you are applying for whereas LinkedIn can be much deeper and broader.
In today’s resume tip, I talk about the importance of an old concept on your resume. That old concept is “Above the Fold”. The short version, don’t make the person reading your resume go hunt for the reason to hire you.
My big caveat with this series is that I’m not in HR, I’m not a professional recruiter, I’m just a manager who has read a bunch of resumes. The tips are my perspective on things.
