A resume is essential when looking for a job. If you don't believe me, try conducting your job search without one. Even if your lucky enough get an interview without a resume, you will be faced with explaining why you do not have one when someone ask you for your resume at the interview. More than ever before, employers require resumes. And, more than ever before, employers will use your resume to determine whether not to grant you an interview.
Even before the current recession began, Human Resources experts told us that most people are so nervous in job interviews that are too nervous to make a good impression in their first interview, and land a job on their second or third attempts. Another point the HR people reiterated is that the average resume ends up in the dont call pile somewhere from 90-95% of the time. Taken together, these points mean that if you use an average resume to apply for 10 jobs each week, the odds are that you that you wont get an interview until your ninth week, by which point you are so anxious and nervous that talk yourself out of a job, leading to another nine week wait for your next interview, at which you are more relaxed and might impress your interviewer and win the job. So it was no surprise when one study showed that the average executive or professional should expect their job hunt to take between 18 to 27 weeks. On one occasion in my own pre-resume writing business career, I found out by painful personal experience that these studies results were indeed accurate. Remember too, that both studies were done before the recession. The average job hunt nowadays, when even janitorial openings are getting 300 or more applicants, will likely take longer.
8. Too much information. I know, I know, you dont want to leave anything out that might be important to a hiring manager. However, too much information creates the eyes glazed over effect with readers. Focus on whats most important. The interview can flush out additional details.
