A recent job hunter sent her resume around to all her friends and relations asking for advice. A fellow job seeker argued against including so much information. A former co-worker suggested expanding to two pages. One friend said, “You should center your education section.” Another friend said, “Get rid of all the centering.” An aunt recommended removing information about specific college courses. An uncle praised the details about her college career.
The job hunter froze. How could she consider applying for a job when she couldn’t even get the resume right?
Like many job seekers, she suffered from too much advice from amateur resume writers. I recommend that you limit the number of your reviewers. There are a dozen ways to write a resume. In truth, great resumes vary a lot both in format and content. What is perfect for one job applicant may not serve another one at all. At Robin’s Resumes® we customize each resume to you—your experience, your achievements, your industry and your expectations.
If you are frozen by conflicting advice, give Robin’s Resumes® a call. I will set you firmly on the path to the job you want. Remember, the only resume that succeeds in getting you a job is the one you send out.
