  • Some would say it's all about mind games.

  • I want you to take this resume.

  • This is a real person.

  • We're calling her Jane Doe to protect her privacy.

  • What's the first thing when you're looking at this?

  • That you would immediately change That jumps out at you.

  • First things first is the seven seconds.

  • The first seven seconds when someone is gonna read your resume will actually influence their opinion.

  • So if you have all of these different fonts and lines and things happening there, you're just getting too distracted.

  • So like you're gonna be pulling in that direction and then this direction and then change the font change of front again.

  • Uh, the location is unnecessary.

  • What?

  • I would center all of this information.

  • There should be, obviously her name, her phone number, her email and then a little blurb that basically summarizes you or Jane in this case and her career.

  • So the goal of this blurb is for you, in a nutshell.

  • To tell these people why you're such a good fit in a way that you're influencing their behavior.

  • You're not telling them I'm awesome, X.

  • I'm an expert.

  • You're leaving the information there for them to jump to that conclusion.

  • I was taught to not let your resume go on to a second page, but here we have two pages.

  • What do you say at Jane's career level and your career level?

  • Like if you've been out of college for a few years, you can go with more pages.

  • What would you say to her to maximize her incredible experience of Wow, what is this?

  • Almost 17 years at Cedars Sinai right here.

  • There's just way too much information too much going on.

  • You need to be very succinct into the point, the way our brain internalizes information, you need to tell them what you did, how you did it.

  • And then I recommend you put in a couple of key accomplishments that numerically give the reader on understanding of the scope of what you did.

  • How did we end it?

  • I usually ended with my education.

  • You're sparking wise.

  • That is, that lame.

  • Is that lame?

  • Nowadays, it really is about the experience when someone's reading through your resume.

  • So you close with with education, they'll probably get that Oh, you went to so and so school or you know, Okay, on to the next.

  • However, if you throw in what we usually do is put in an about me section.

  • You're gonna throw your reader totally off guard and you're gonna tell them something like, what's an example?

  • How far could you go with that?

  • This woman was applying for a job at Google and when she was hired, the interviewer, the hiring manager, goes to her and says, You know what?

  • You were Neck and neck was someone else.

  • But what really kind of was the deciding factor was the fact that you are into Roller Derby and you play the accordion like that, completely seal the deal.

  • And they only knew that because of her about me section, Yeah, because it was completely different.
