Chances are if you’re working right now, it’s safe to say you had to more than likely send out a resume in order to get hired. Even if you didn’t, there could come that time in the future where you may have to. Regardless of if you’re planning on applying for a new job, it’s always great to have some resume tips in the back of your head for future reference.
To let you know a bit about myself, I worked in human resources for a pretty large company for close to 10 years. Thankfully, I was able to escape the rat race and start a side project while enjoying my family. While the corporate atmosphere wasn’t too bad, I wanted to share with everyone what you can do to make your resume stand out above the rest because you’d be amazed at how much garbage (I’m saying that nicely) we’d get. In fact, it wouldn’t be uncommon to get 500 resumes within 48 hours for ONE job position. Out of those, however, we would maybe like 20.
