My #Resume, Come Judge Me

So I thought this was a strange idea but I’ve seen it done on other blogs and mentioned on social media outlets so I figured what the hell, why not. I’m going to open myself to criticism and critique on this post.

I’m going to post my resume and I want to know, would you hire me? What you change about my resume? What are my strengths and weaknesses? Am I downplaying myself too much or making myself seem more than I am? You be the judge.

DISCLOSURE: Formatting is not working with me in regards to the dates but I assure you the actually document is formatted correctly.

Ambitious and responsible worker eager to begin an entry level position where I can utilize my organizational and time-management skills to help the company meet and exceed goals.

  1. I think it’s risky to do this because the only opinions that should be actionable are by people who hire now or who have ever hired more than once in organizations. Everyone has an opinion but not everyone’s opinion is going to be helpful, as I learned years ago as a corporate writer. Having said that, I’ll respond–As a former high tech exec who has hired way too many people in her life I saw two things that you might want to look at. It’s helpful to have a one line description of what each company does so they know your industry experience. Also you use a lot of lingo and acronyms that people might not understand. If you can clarify so someone unfamiliar with the organization has a better idea of what the task was, better. Also, if there are any accomplishments you can quantify–increased something by x percent, those are always good. Best of luck!

  2. Liz,
    Having read and helped the Hub s on his resume for the last few years here are some pointers.

    One page only. Show how you increased profit/ time saved/ met a company goal. Taking to others to communicate effectively can be changed to read maintained effective interdepartmental communications.
    Spell out your acronyms.

      1. I took the hubs and changed his full sentences to succinct descriptions. He has 35 yrs worth of work and loads of degrees and certifications down to two pages. I can email you one so you can see it.

  3. I think the one-page mandate for resumes is a little outdated and sometimes unnecessary. About the acronyms, I *kind of* agree but then I don’t. With the prevalence of internet search-engines and almost everyone and their grandmother tinkering around online, anyone with an ounce of curiosity about something can Google an acronym and, more often than not, find a viable answer.

    Good luck in your search! 🙂
