Who says that resumes have to fit onto one page? The concept of the one page resume is a myth that has been around seemingly forever and has almost no validity. Those who dissent the most? Tech recruiters! Which makes no sense to me when it’s critical for IT candidates to list their programming languages,… Read More The post The Myth of the One Page Resume appeared first on Rising Star Resumes ..read more

I have whiplash. The job market went – in no time – from months of employers bemoaning the paucity of qualified candidates for critical positions to a real hesitation around hiring due to predictions of a looming recession.

Are you including a header & footer in your resume? Well, don’t. I don’t know how or why this became a thing, but it’s not only pointless, but dangerous. I’m not aware of any ATS software that can read headers and footers, but since that’s where you’re putting your name and contact information, you’re basically… Read More The post Headers & Footers are a Huge Mistake! appeared first on Rising Star Resumes ..read more

You want feedback on your new resume before starting your job search. But who gives the best resume advice? Who among your family, friends or colleagues should you turn to to get constructive feedback? Probably none of them. Occasionally when I’m working with a client, they report feedback from “my brother-in-law,” “my manager,” or “the… Read More The post The Best Resume Advice appeared first on Rising Star Resumes ..read more

When clients send me their resumes in a template that they downloaded from the Internet, I immediately copy and paste the information into a Word document, and work on the resume in Word.

You have to stop sending out meaningless resumes. Hard stop. What makes a resume meaningless? Listing responsibilities without context. A section devoted to keywords (I see you, ATS slaves) without context. Details so outdated that they do you more harm than good. Let me explain, one point at a time.

If you want to connect with your target employers, stop thinking of your resume as a history of your work life. It’s not.
