Writing Resumes which Recruiters Want to Read

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recruiters get inundated with resumes. Typically a recruiter spends about 3 seconds per resume. Unless your resume is written so that it is easy for a recruiter to read, your resume could easily be overlooked.

There is a methodology which you can follow which will increase the likelihood of your resume getting read thoroughly by recruiters. The BJSP leaders know of situations where this methodology actually was responsible for a candidate getting a great job offer.

We will be teaching this resume writing methodology. If you bring your resume on a flashdrive, we should be able to it up on the computer screen and look at it in detail.

Events at the Microsoft Store's Training Center require business causal attire. However, many people do dress up as if they are headed to a professional job interview.

Often, BJSP attendees meet at 7:00 AM at Panera Bread in Tyson's Mall prior to this event.

All BJSP seminars are presented free to job seekers.

    I appreciated that the discussion was about readability over "writing the resume." It was refreshing that we didn't get into font types discussion but were able to understand which one eased readability.

    This meeting emphasized that common sense is not always so common. Robert identified several points on resumes that I will implement and greatly increase the odds for my resume to distinguish itself from the other applicants.

    Robert offered some very good content relevant to my resume. In fact, I revised mine a bit before I went to a job interview. Over the past two weeks since my layoff, I have met some fabulous people. I am in good company. Best wishes to all and to Beltway Job Search Recruiters for caring. This is a wonderful initiative! Thank you

    A very interesting meetup. I learn so much about my resume and how I could make it one which "Recruiters would want to Read" Robert Brandau, the BJSP co-founder and facilitator, empathized with the participants, he was well informed about this topic. Robert shared ground-breaking techniques to improve our resume. I recommend this to all who are between opportunity and job seeking. It is Budget-friendly.

    Wonderful program! Robert Brandau is an excellent facilitator - knowledgeable and engaging. It was reassuring to be part of such a warm and welcoming group of participants - I even made a few networking connections. I would highly recommend BJSP to my job-seeking friends. It's a valuable resource, the timing was convenient, the location was easy to find, and the price (FREE) was just right for the budget-conscious!

    Mr. Brandau is a very knowledgeable recruiter. What puts him above others is the sympathy that he feels for job seekers. I am in a career transition and after attending the BJSP's resume seminar, I feel rejuvenated and optimistic about my resume and the ability to attain employment in my chosen field of CyberSecurity/Computer Forensic Analyst. It speaks volumes about Mr. Brandau's character to want to help job seekers put their best foot forward in a tough and competitive job market. Kudos to you, sir, and the BJSP's endeavors.
