**Resume Tips Alert**

Continuing to share - I was recently on a “Job Hunting During a Pandemic” panel sharing tips on resumes and interviewing based on my experience of reviewing thousands of resumes and conducting hundreds of interviews over my career. Here are 3 additional Resume Tips:

1. File Name

  • Oh, my goodness, this may be the easiest thing to change and you wouldn’t believe the number of folks who don’t pay attention to this.

  • Make sure your resume’s file name includes your full name and do not include any nicknames/cutesy terms.

  • While we are on this theme, you may want to consider updating your email address. The goal (for most fields/positions) is to come across as professional as possible.

2. Magic Verbs

  • Your resume should be filled with powerful verbs.

  • The days of having boring terms like “responsible for…” or “completed…” are over.

  • I have a list of many examples to help, please reach out to me!

3. Numbers

  • Fill your resume with numbers to show how/what you’ve improved/changed/grown/saved the company.

  • It’s all about showing how you’ve improved the company so someone can imagine you doing something similar at the company you are interviewing for.
