For recruiters and hiring managers, a great resume is one that tells them what they want to know fast. They review hundreds of resumes for every job opening. They lack the time to hunt for the qualifications, experience, achievements and attitudes they want in the perfect candidate. So your resume has to fulfill their wish for quick and thorough information.
Your resume is a marketing document. It is marketing you. With the holidays approaching, your mailbox is full of brochures. Consider what the best marketing pieces have in common: The contact information is easy to find and read; a bold statement up front makes that company stand out from the crowd; and the detailed information gives the facts that any consumer wants before deciding to buy.
Your resume must do the same thing: make it easy for recruiters to contact you, start with a strong statement of your outstanding skills and accomplishments and cover the details that recruiters and marketing managers are looking for. And it has to do all without wasting their time.
