If you need tips on interviewing, I can help with that as well!
As an HR Recruiter, I spend most of my work day reviewing resumes and if it checks off all the boxes, I then conduct a phone screen.
You definitely want to limit your resume to no more than 2 pages; if you are able to limit it to 1 page, even better. This also means that you should only highlight certain job duties for each employer; you do not want it to be too lengthy. Job history length is something that’s definitely looked at as well. I wouldn’t list any employers that you have been with for less than 1 year. If you have an ongoing pattern of job hopping on your resume, I would at least state the reason for leaving that employer so the time company you are applying for does not get the wrong impression. Also, let’s say you have a total of 3 employers you have worked at: 1st one= 2 years, 2nd= 5 months, and 3rd= 3 years, I would not add that second employer onto your resume since it does not show longevity. I could go on about this, but these are some of the main points.
I don’t mind learning to write a resume. I do have a new job. In spare time learning to write a resume doesn’t hurt
Check out the blog Ask A Manager, she has so much great info about resumes, cover letters, interviewing, and anything else you can think of.
One of the most important things I learned was rather than listing all your job duties at previous jobs, instead list your accomplishments at that job.
If you or anyone need resume help I have a skeleton of a resume I would be glad to send
