There is so much information on resumes, that if you read 30 different sources, you'll probably discover 30 different opinions. It's frustrating and aggravating to most job searchers. Still, if you want to compete in the job market, one thing is for certain: you need a dynamite resume.

Hiring sources today will not even speak with you without having a resume for them to review. Even if you are the BEST candidate for the position, hiring authorities will not bring you in for the interview if your resume does not grab their attention. Should You Write Your Own Resume?

In short, the answer is "no." Why?

  • For one thing, you are not familiar with the current buzz words, trends and preferences
  • It is hard to maintain objectivity about yourself; you may have slaved on a project and think it is a very important point, yet, in reality, it doesn't even belong on your resume
  • You may select a format for all the wrong reasons (you like the way it looks, your brother-in-law used it, or you saw it in a "how-to" book)
  • You have only one chance to capture the reader's attention - and you don't get a second chance to make a first impression

(We've been working with online resumes since 1995)

If you're competing in the job search of TODAY, you'd better get wired or you're going to get whacked. You can no longer get by the way you once did -- just using paper resumes to answer ads, contact executive search firms, etc. Electronic forms of your resume (e-resumes) must meet standards that have been necessitated by various databases and Internet sites, or else it will be rejected. It's more than just eliminating bold and underlining on the resume, and it isn't about loading the resume with html. The greatest opportunity in job search right now is on the Internet, through both companies' and recruiters' sites and databases. If you're merely a and not competing with a sophisticated e-resume -- you're dead.

The electronic form of your resume must meet some standards that have been necessitated by the various databases and email systems. It must be a plain text document and all formatting such as bolding, tabs, underling, italicizing, etc. that you cherish in your traditional resume must be removed. Also many hidden commands that are entered into the document created using word processing programs must be removed so that they do not corrupt or distort the resume when it is received by a hiring agent's database or email. You can try to beat the system by entering a resume loaded with html, or other formatting commands, and sometimes you will get away with it, temporarily. Sooner or later, your resume will be corrupted - guaranteed! Don't fight the system! Do it right the first time!
