Yesterday, I was sitting in a café enjoying my soy flat white and taking a few moments for myself.
But I couldn’t help but notice the two girls sitting at the table next to me.
They were both dressed quite nicely and they had a rather large pile of white paper sitting between them.
I soon realized what that pile of paper was.
It was a pile of resumes. Yes. A real pile of real resumes for real jobs.
And all only a table away from me!
These two girls, who obviously worked together, were sitting down over a coffee to discuss potential candidates for the job they were currently advertising.
Little did those girls realise, but I was listening to every word they were saying and not only was it eye-opening, but it confirmed a bunch of stuff I already know about writing resumes.
And not just writing your resume, but writing it in such a way that it ACTUALLY GETS READ.
No, it’s not rocket science, but you do need to know stuff. You need to know how formal language has changed. You do need to know whether you should include a photo or not. And you most certainly need to know about The-7-Second-Flick.
All this and more will be discussed in detail in this week’s Resume Writing Webinar.
