Did you know the average recruiter spends less than 10 seconds scanning a resume?
A well-designed resume is like a VIP pass to the front of the line with recruiters and hiring managers. Make sure your resume makes it to the "yes" pile with our professionally designed Microsoft Word and Canva resume templates, step-by-step instructions, and downloadable resources filled with interactive and guided exercises that will improve your resume in just 24 hours.
+ Having a resume filled with typos and grammatical mistakes
+ Not quantifying your accomplishments
+ Including outdated or irrelevant information
+ Not customizing the resume for the job you’re applying to
+ Having distracting or busy formatting that is hard to read
Do any of these sound familiar? If so, watch the video below.
We don’t need to tell you how imperative it is that you have a strong resume when job searching.
A resume is often your first impression on a hiring manager. You want to make it count. It’s a space for you to showcase your accomplishments and personality in the best way possible.
However, if you want to stand out from the crowd, you’re going to need a pretty perfect resume. But figuring out how to create this perfect resume can be a challenge if you have no direction.
How do you showcase a gap in your work history? How do I format my resume if I want to change job industries? Does a resume really have to be just one page?
All of these questions and more will be answered in The 24-Hour Resume Makeover. You’ll walk away with a professional resume that sells you and your uniqueness to any hiring manager.
