Septemeber 13, 2010 – NEW! Job Opportunities

As the recruiter for APG, I spend the majority of my time weeding through resumes and trying to find “the Rockstar” for the job opening at hand. Consequently, I’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to resume quality. To assist our blog readers who are considering applying for one of our job opportunities, I’ve put together a list of my top three recommendations for improving your resume.   

1)      Explain your experience:  “If it’s not on your resume, it doesn’t exist.” Don’t assume that a company knows everything you’ve done at previous jobs. The best way for them to know about your work history is to spell it out for them on your resume.  Highlight what you do best.

2)      Keep in simple:  The average time a hiring manager or recruiter looks at a resume is 15 seconds.  Make sure you are able to grab their attention within those first crucial 15 seconds.  Emphasize with relevant examples, and customize your resume to the specific job.

3)      Search Optimization:  Since most resumes are pre screened through a database, focus on including pertinent words or phrases that you want to have noticed related to what you can do.  Pick no more than 10 keywords or phrases and make them bulleted and relevant to the job you are looking for. 

We’ve got three new job opportunities, since my last posting in August. If you know someone who may be interested, please have them send their resume to
