3 Tips for an Outstanding Resume

3 Tips for an Outstanding Resume

Just how important is a resume? A corporate job opening attracts an average of 250 resumes, according to an ERE Survey of 2013. Of these hopefuls, only 4 to 6 candidates will get an interview, and only one of these candidates will get the job. It seems the odds are stacked against you, and those odds are pretty darned staggering. Some applicants have unparalleled credentials, amazing connections or even perfect timing which gives then a chance at the job even WITHOUT a polished resume. However, if you're like most people, that 1 to 2-pager in that heaping pile of hundreds may be the only chance you'll get at landing an interview for your ideal job. In other words, that resume better sing!
