This CV Saviour hybrid style of resume (international A4 paper size) works really well for anyone really, but in particular for those with challenging career histories, career changers, job hoppers, those who have juggled multiple concurrent jobs, those with little work experience or job seekers who want to take the focus off their past job titles or the fact that they have very little paid work experience, so they can emphasise the value they bring to their next role. The style aims to capture 70% of the key information about a candidate on the front page. Where colour has been used in blocks, it is shading only, so it won not cause issues for ATS, and the Key Skills section uses ATS-friendly hard set tabs. For those with very little experience, but heaps of knowledge on a subject, they should use the heading Areas of Knowledge and Understanding instead of Key Skills, if they do not yet have the hands-on experience in a skill.
Stop fiddling with the margins. Lees says the days of a one-page resume are over: It used to be that you used a tiny font size and crammed in the information to make it fit. Nowadays, two or three pages is fine, but that is the limit: Any more than three and it shows that you can not edit. Heifetz agrees: I have never met a resume that fit on one page, even for a recent graduate. If you are going to tell a compelling story, you need more space. You can supplement what is on the page with links to your work but you have to motivate the hiring manager to take the extra step required. Tell them in a brief, one-line phrase what is so important about the work you are providing, says Heifetz. And stick to the most common fonts. It is not how fancy it is. It is how clear, clean, and elegant it is in its simplicity, says Heifetz. Vary the line length and avoid crammed text or paragraphs that look identical. The goal is to include enough white space so that a hiring manager wants to keep reading. For example, the opening summary could be three or four lines of text or two or three bullet points. It does not matter as long as it is easy to read, says Heifetz. It can be hard to be objective about your own experience and accomplishments. Many people overstate — or understate — their achievements or struggle to find the right words. Consider working with a resume writer, mentor, or a friend who can help you steer away from questions like, Am I good enough for this position? and focus on Am I the right person for the job? At a minimum, have someone else check your resume for logic, grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
For Loretta Danielson, we have used a three-line headline. The first line, Human Resources Director, positions her for the level of job she is targeting: the second line communicates the breadth of her experience, from startups to high-growth organizations: and the third line, Positioning HR as a Business Partner for Excellence, is what we refer to as a branding statement, her unique value proposition. One word of caution about headlines—and, in fact, about everything that you include in your resume. Be certain that what you are highlighting matches not only what you have done in the past but also what you want to do in the future. This is extremely important because you want readers to perceive you as a qualified and experienced candidate for the positions you are currently targeting. If you have extensive experience managing compensation and benefits, for example, but you do not want that to be a major part of your next job, do not highlight it with a headline. You can mention it as appropriate in the experience section, but do not make the mistake of drawing attention to something you do not want readers to focus on. Be selective and be strategic.
