If you have solidskills and work experience but your resume isn’t getting any bites, you might need a resume makeover.     

如果你有很强的实力,丰富的工作经验,但是你的简历没有任何优势的话,你可能就需要装饰装饰你的简历 了。

1.In:A professional summary at the top of your resume. This sells you like nothing else on your resume does.     


Out:An objective statement at the top of your resume. Nothing says "outdated" like an objective.     



"Ditch it immediately," advises Jack Williams, vice president of national sales and recruiting for Staffing Technologies, in Atlanta. Employers don’t care what a potential hire wants to do. "They care whether they can do what the employer needs them to do," he says.

Jack Williams是亚特兰大Staffing Technologies公司的国际销售和 招聘 副总裁,他建议说:“马上删除掉。雇主不会关心一位候选人想要做什么。他们关心的是该候选人能否按照他们的需求去做。  

2.In:Resumes that are easy on the eyes.     


"I don’t have time to read through each resume and search for the important points. They need to jump out at me," says Mike Earley, vice president of resource management at MyWire, a media aggregation site. Earley says hot resumes are organized with bullet points, not paragraphs, and have enough white space to look clean and visually interesting.     

My Wire是一个综合媒体网站,其人力资源副总Mike Earley说:“我没时间去看每一份简历,然后找出其中的重点部分。它们需要马上跳入我的眼帘。”Earley说好的简历都是非常有条理地列出要点,而不是一段一段,并且空出很多空白的地方看起来很干净、有视觉冲击效果。

Out:Resumes that are "grey," with large chunks of unbroken text that require recruiters to slow down. Chances are they won’t take the time.

错误的做法:不起眼的简历,一大段文字还不分段, 招聘 人员要慢慢去看。很可能他们不会浪费这个时间。     

3.In:A customized resume. Tailor every resume you send out for the job you’re seeking


Out:A cookie-cutter approach: same resume for every job. These were from the days before home computers, when changing a resume was a really big deal.


4.In:A two-to-three-page resume when you really need the space.    


Out:A one-page resume when you really need two or three pages.
