We will talk through the basic principles of writing resumes which are easy for recruiters to read. We will be teaching you from our perspective as professional recruiters, who as part of our careers, have looked at far more resumes than human beings should have to endure.

As a generalization, when we have looked at resumes from job fairs, from 30% down to 2% of the resumes are easy for recruiters to read.

The rest which are not easy to read often don’t get read.

While resumes are just 2% of your job search, they are often essential for getting that first interview. We will discuss what recruiters are looking for, why they are looking for it and how to make sure they see it on your resume.

1. We will laugh at some of the exceptions to the general principles of resume writing.
2. We will explain why you can get various differing advice on your resume. If you understand where the advice is coming from, you will realize that there is not much difference in the advice.

If you are willing to have your resume critiqued as part of this seminar, we will give you the opportunity to send it to us beforehand.

From time to time we have attendees make the changes we recommend and immediately get unstuck in their job search. provides FREE job search educational services. At the end of this seminar there will be an 8-minute Christian story.
