The truth is, your resume is going to be centered around your core skills, and these skills define who you are.
The great thing is we will teach you how to hack this whole system, then find what skills companies are looking for.
So, you can design your resumé strategy a way that helps you win.
Do you know?
The HR department is looking at resumes for only 6 seconds, before they decide to put your resumé in the interested area or in a garbage can.
The problem is that an HR department does not have enough time to review all applicants thoroughly and are often busy reviewing other applicants.
Most companies get about 250 applicants for every job opening.
Imagine somebody sitting there looking at a mountain of resumes.
The people who are checking your resume are attracted to certain areas of your application.
So, these are the areas in a document where your resume needs to stand out:
” I have the skills that your company need to thrive.”
The design template you pick is important because it is tailored towards a specific purpose,
that’s why the templates are designed the way it is.
All right. Let’s take Bob for example.
Bob is a Data Analyst.
So typically, he goes on google.com and searches up data analysis job description.
Then, he finds multiple keywords in the job description that are listed in the ‘ideal candidate’ paragraph section.
It will show skills that are necessary for this role posted by this company.
The skills that are listed higher on those job descriptions are higher priority skills for the company.
Bob does not need to put these all skills on his résumé, but some high-frequency keywords are worth considering.
To make Bob one of the best candidates he will need to mix required skills that are listed on the job descriptions with Bob’s other talents.
The person who is scanning the resumé is thinking highly of Bob who is extremely qualified for this role.
If you have the skills that are required for the job, then you will likely get an interview!!!
