Read this well, it’s the thing I see EVERY day and it’s not good…
I know you are flooded with advice on how to write your resume, how to make it ATS-compliant, how to format it, what to include, what to exclude…
It’s overwhelming…and you end up having a patched CV that looks resurrected, but not quite alive. 🙁
Updating your resume based on a hundred tips (often unprofessional) will not get your foot in the hiring manager’s door, and here is why:
🆘 It’s bursting with phrases and overused words.
🆘 The mix of resume writing styles is visible, and it looks messy and confusing.
🆘 The "one–size–fits–all" resume approach is doomed to failure.
🆘 It does not reflect you, your experience, and expertise.
What to do instead:
✍️ Keep in mind: your resume is ALL about what you can add to the company.
✍️ Avoid explanations, keep it simple, precise, to the point, factual.
✍️ Include quantified proof of your accomplishment wherever possible.
✍️ Your resume is YOUR career passport, it must reflect YOU.
So, if you are not getting interviews - it’s because of your resume. Work smarter, not harder, and ask for help when you need it.
