Applying for a Job? 4 Lies That They’re Telling You

Some people lie on their resumes. When they get caught (and they frequently do get caught), they have squandered whatever opportunity they might have had with that company. What is not as widely known is the fact that employers also lie when talking to candidates for employment. In an outcome that some cynics might point to as proof that life isn’t fair, they don’t get punished for it. C’est la vie.

Writing a World Class Resume (part 1)

When writing a World Class Resume throw almost everything you know about the length of a resume out the door. Some people will tell you to keep your resume under 1 or 2 pages. I say “forget that”! If you are straight out of school or only have a couple years of professional experience a short resume will do the job. However you if you have a few years under your belt like I do. 1 or 2 pages are not going to tell the whole story.
The first thing you want to start with is a good font. I recommend a Times Roman or Ariel either a 11 or 12; don’t use anything crazy . The reason you want to use one of those is because it will be easily imported by a Vendor Managed Systems (VMS) or by a majority of the Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) that are in use by most recruiters today.
In writing a World Class Resume the first thing that you will want to do is; center your contact information. An example would be:
John Smith
1212 High Street
Roscoe, IL 60173
(815)555-1212
jsmith@mymail.com
Again, the reason that you want to do it this way is because of the VMS or ATS that are in use out there. In order for your resume to fully searchable in a company’s database. You want to make sure that your contact info gets ported correctly. After all if you are a fit for the position but they have no way to contact you because your contact info was in some funky format; You might as well kiss that opportunity good bye!
The second part of your resume should include Education but only if you have a degree. If you do not have a degree move this to the last part of your resume. Why highlight what you don’t have. I will say this over and over again. Your resume is a selling document and you never have a second chance to make a good first impression. If you don’t have a degree; why highlight what you don’t have right out of the gate. Remember sell yourself first! ( I know I said the same thing twice but if you are like me you need to hear things over and over again.)
