Did you know your resume is more likely to be reviewed by an AI algorithm first before ever being reviewed by a person? These algorithms scan for key words and phrases according to the job posting and then put you in the ‘move forward’ stack to be reviewed by a recruiter or well, the other stack.
So, are you optimizing the content in your resume? Let’s make sure of it. We sat down with Tea Cooper, Career Strategist and Founder of Cooper Squared Career Services, to talk through the formula of what goes into your resume and what does not.
From top to bottom, we discuss the flow and what key elements should be included for each section in your resume from contact information to your summary to your skills, experience, and education. Tea provides a solid checklist and blueprint to make resume writing actually fun. (Yes, we said fun – you saw that right!)
Whether you are going for your first job or making a career change, this episode will serve you. Listen for yourself and share with your friends to make sure they’re maximizing their potential to be seen not only by a robot but a person to have a fair chance at the job of their dreams too.
