One thing that is an absolute nightmare for employers tasked with trawling through resumes by the bucketload is encountering resumes that are more than one page long. Sure, you might want to go into detail about that part-time training course you took seven years ago, but, frankly, all your future employer wants to know is how that qualification is relevant to the job you’re applying for.
The top one-third of your resume is what a recruiter or hiring manager scans to determine if they will read the rest … and they only give it three seconds,” says career coach Jennifer Braganza. Make yours an attention grabber: Point the reader to places where you have samples of your work product — LinkedIn, a personal website — and add your phone and email address. Bonus tip: If you’re still using a Hotmail or Yahoo account, now’s the time to get a Gmail address — or, if applicable, an email tied to your website. “Having a Yahoo, AOL, or education-based email address makes you look like you’re living in the past,” says Christy Hopkins, human resources consultant at Fit Small Business.
If you are hunting for that dream role at a creative company you are going to want to dust off your old resume and give it a modern refresh. But how can you make sure that—out of all the applicants—its your resume that catches your future employer’s eye?
