As the labor market is getting more competitive, the importance of resume is clearer than ever before. It is significant to learn how to build a good resume in order to get an ideal job. Therefore, in 2019, AllSumJobs interviewed two experts in the field of recruiting and human resources as part of our Professional Tips series. These experts are Angela Efros, Vice President of Business Development and Sales at HG Plus Consulting; and Andrew Ko, Senior Partner, and recruiter at the Lucas Group. We’ve repackaged these interviews into a series of courses to help you build your resume, master your interview, and settle in well at your new workplace.
This is the first of these three courses, centered around resume building. Resume building is more than just getting a written record about your career— it’s about building your own brand through various outlets like LinkedIn or your own website. It’s also about how best to present yourself, as resumes are often only reviewed in a matter of seconds. Getting the attention of your future employer is more essential today than ever before.
- How to write a better resume. We go beyond just formatting and word choice, diving deep into how to best present yourself on paper in a way that grabs attention.
- What are qualities that HR care about? We ask the experts what soft skills stand out the most, and what is best left unmentioned.
- What experiences can you talk about? As you write a resume, you need to think about what to bring up and how. Even people straight out of school need something to talk about!
This course is also great with our other resume-building content, so be sure to check it out!
