Episode 35 – Resume Folderol

This episode’s question:

Can you please discuss your thoughts on what constitutes a good resume and, more importantly, what constitutes a terrible resume? As a hiring manager, I’m subjected to a wide range of resume formatting, some of which is clearly performed by the recruiter or agency presenting the candidate. A recent trend separates a candidates job history from their skills or accomplishments, making it impossible to determine the candidate’s career growth, for example.

Can you discuss what an individual can do to clearly present themselves in writing to clear HR hurdles for a phone screen or in-person interview? Also, please share your all-time “worst resume” stories.
