1. Basic job search toolsResume – Here’s the thing I’ve found about resumes: sometimes you can’t accurately evaluate your own resume. You may look right at it and see how perfect it is, but I might get it as a resume screener and within a few seconds put it in the “no” pile. And you may never know why.So if your job search has not been getting you to interviews, the first place to check would be your resume.
- Is it attractive, easy to read and free of typos and grammatical errors?
- Can the reader easily focus on resume elements that point directly to the new job?
- Does it paint a picture of where you want to go and not just where you’ve been?
