In the last few years, the economy, the job market, what companies look for in leadership, how we absorb information, how we search for what we want to have all changed drastically. As a result, what makes a great resume has changed.
What is a great resume?
It will be seen. If the keywords are not present in the resume, it WILL NOT BE SEEN. Also, now it is more than just keywords. Applicant Tracking Systems, the software that parses your resume into their proprietary database from the posting response, are now starting to be equipped with AI so now a resume needs to be more inclusive then in years past. Nevertheless, all information is viewed via search returns or alerts from the company’s database.
It is easy to follow and understand. In our ever-changing economy, any experience prior to five years ago is most likely irrelevant to a potential employer. Any interest in your legacy experience is more to understand your career path, choices, and environments to which you have been exposed. Don’t under estimate the power of the story. The legacy experience does build a powerful story that your resume review absorbs in 5-10 seconds, so it is best to include but no need to go into details on the content.
