Why is a resume important in your job search?
Your resume is your opportunity to immediately make an impression to the Hiring Manager by demonstrating your experience, achievements, skills and relevant qualifications.
On average, you only have six seconds to grab the attention of Hiring Managers. This means that your resume content needs to be organised in a way that it’s easy for the human reader to immediately see the main parts.
Your resume also needs to be on a design that’s scannable and readable by the Applicant Tracking System (ATS). This means your resume should not contain any text boxes, columns, graphics and other components that are not able to parse by the ATS.
