Resume Advice

When a potential employer views your resume, what will they notice first? Your education? The introduction or statement before your work history? Your hobbies? The truth is, each employer is looking at different things on your resume. If there’s a HR person involved, they may see the resumes before the hiring manager does, and they could be looking at something completely different! Regardless of who is looking at your resume, you want to “WOW” them. Give them no choice but to bring you in so they can meet you face-to-face and offer you the job.

Some people go out on a limb to make themselves memorable. Creative resumes are great if you are going to be face-to-face with your potential employer, otherwise it may take a bit more planning to make a memorable digital resume. Design is key. Add elements that you enjoy and show your personality through your CV.
