Fun fact – did you know that a hiring manager will look at your resume for no more than six seconds before they decide if you are a suitable candidate for the role?
So, question- in those six seconds, what is the first part of the resume the hiring manager sees? Answer: the first 3/4 of page one, of course.
So what does this mean? It means the first half of page one in your resume needs to ‘wow’ the hiring manager within seconds in order to persuade them to continue reading it. But how do you do that?
Find out the first three things you need to do in order in make sure your resume is getting the extra minutes it deserves.

Whilst a resume should follow a certain formula, it does not mean you cannot personalise it to make it unique to you and your personality. In fact, you should. This is what will make it stand out more and for all the right reasons. So use language that you are comfortable with – avoid generic buzz words. Use a font that you feel reads best. Create a layout that meets your personal design taste. It does not all have to be blocky, dry and uniform.
