- Hey there welcome back.
It's JT from Work It Daily.
And today I'm gonna be sharing with you
the five things you must have on your resume
to get more job interviews.
But before I do that I wanna remind you
to hit the subscribe button,
especially that little bell which will notify you
every time we share brand new career advice with you.
Okay, let's get started.
So I was in HR and recruiting for many years.
I work with thousands of recruiters here at Work It Daily
and I'm here to tell you
what they're looking for in a resume.
What I want you to think about is their job
because they get hundreds sometimes thousands
or resumes for one position
which means they have have to skim them.
They do not read every single resume.
They have about six seconds,
studies show literally six seconds on average.
The other thing you need that you need to know
is that their eye works in a Z pattern.
Within six seconds they go left to right
across the top of the page
down across it and back over.
So knowing that information, the secret to a great resume
is leveraging that and optimizing how you design this resume
so that they absorb the most amount of information
about you in the shortest amount of time.
Does that make sense?
So before I go any further I want you to share with me
in the comments, be honest, how good is your resume?
Do you think your resume is really ready
for primetime?
Do you think it meets these qualifications?
Is your resume six second worthy?
Does it absorb what they need to absorb in six seconds?
Share with me in the comments below.
I wanna get your feedback.
But now I'm gonna move on to give you tips
about what you can do to make that even better.
Okay, number one, first thing you must have on this resume
is a headline.
Not an objective statement, not a professional summary.
These long winded paragraphs that people
are putting at the top of their resumes are a no go.
Recruiters do not read them, I can tell you right now.
They go right over them.
What you need is a simple two or three word sentence
or summary about your skills as a professional.
Let me give you an example, if you work in digital marketing
and you've got a lot of specialty in that area
you might label yourself as a Digital Marketing Specialist.
It's clean, it's easy and just within a second
I'm already starting to understand what your specialty is
and that's important because recruiters are hiring
for specific things.
Number two, make sure that you've got white space
on your resume.
So what is white space?
Well it's all that white space in between all of the words.
Now I know that might sound silly but hear me out.
When there is too much text on a page
it is impossible to read,
and recruiters will not bother to read your resume.
What you have to do is create wider margins,
both on the sides, tops and bottoms,
and plenty of space in between things
like your work history.
The reason for that is that the eye is drawn in
to what it sees around the white space.
In fact, all good marketers know this.
I would tell you that it's better to have a resume
that's two or three pages long
and be full of white space and easy to read,
than trying to cram it all on one page
and overwhelming the reader.
So make sure that you create proper white space
so that I can read everything on the page.
Okay, number three, it's all about key skill sets
in the top fold of your resume.
So what's the top fold of your resume?
It's the top third of the resume
and if you think about it,
if I'm online and I'm a recruiter
and I open your resume up,
that's the first thing I'm gonna see.
So besides that headline that I want in there
I want two columns, your top eight to ten key skill sets
listed right there.
Now what are your key skill sets?
Those are the things you most want to leverage
about yourself.
They're the things that we can measure.
They're the things you do for a company.
It's how you save or make them money.
What are the tasks that you complete?
These are the key skill sets and you often find these
in the bottom of your LinkedIn profiles.
So that can be a good place to look for them.
But you wanna put those front and center
just underneath your headline
so that very quickly, I can read through them
as a recruiter and go check, check, check, check, check.
Here she has everything that I was told that I need
in order to share that with the Hiring Manager.
This is gonna make it really easy for them to start
to form an impression about you as a professional.
So with that in mind I'm gonna challenge everyone,
do you have key skill sets on your resume?
Share with me in the comments below.
I wanna know how many of you understand this concept
and also any feedback on that.
If you need more information, let us know.
So, number four is all about your work history
and specifically leading with your job titles
in your work history.
Now I mentioned in the beginning of this
that our eye works in a Z pattern on a resume.
Well when we go down the cross of that Z
what we're looking for is your work history,
your chronological work history.
That's all the jobs that you've held.
And as a recruiter I've been trained
to look at your job titles.
I wanna see progression in your career
and that you've grown with each and every job.
So by listing your job title first and bolding that,
it's gonna make my eye quickly look at that
and be able to analyze and see your job history progression.
It's less important about where you worked
and more important about what you did.
So make sure in your work history
you're always leading with your job title
and that those are bolded so that I, the recruiter,
can easily skim them.
Okay, last but not least, number five.
This is all about the size of the font.
So similar to white space you have to make this readable
and having a large enough font is key.
Nothing smaller than an 11 point font
should ever be on your resume.
So often I've seen resumes where everybody's trying to cram
it on one page so they make the font a seven,
eight, nine point font.
Nobody is gonna read that, it's impossible to read.
If you make me squint, I'm tossing your resume.
An 11 point font is gonna make sure that it's large enough
for everyone to read, and read quickly.
Like I said, I'd rather see it be two,
sometimes three pages long,
but if I have that white space
and that font at the right size
I'm gonna be able to easily read your resume faster
and absorb who you are as a professional.
So there you have it team,
the five things you need on your resume
in order to get more job interviews.
To recap, let's make sure that we've got a killer headline.
Let's make sure that we have plenty of white space.
Be sure to have those key skill sets in the top fold.
Always have your job titles bolded
and leading in your work history.
And make sure that you don't have anything less
than an 11 point font.
These five tips are gonna help
make sure that your resume stands out,
that it's six second worthy,
and that you get more phone calls from recruiters.
All right so listen, I wanna hear from you.
