Not Feeling the Love from Recruiters? 5 ways to Spruce Up Your Resume

  1. Organize. Recruiters spend about 15-30 seconds reading resumes, use bold and italics to highlight important parts of your resume
  2. Action Words. Use action verbs to describe what you achieved at previous jobs or school
  3. Keep It To The Point: Remove old experience that is unrelated to the job you are applying for. Keep the recruiter interested by keeping experiences that are applicable to the job.
  4. Use Color: Use color to make your resume interesting and stand out. Don’t go too crazy with the color, a little goes a long way
  5. Spell Check: A recruiter will look no further if there is a spelling mistake on your resume, double check spelling
