Don’t believe me? I’m sharing my personal experience (more on this in a minute), but a number of job sites such as The Ladders (check out their eye-tracking story on how recruiters review resumes) indicate their survey says employers review your resume in six seconds. Ouch. How do you review the resume? Click. Open. Big Thunderbolt Mac Screen! Eye-Glance 1: Name please! My eyes go right for the top center. I want to see your name. Just your name and geography. Eye-Glance 2: Then I look at the entire top half of the first of page of your resume—all at once. Eye-Glance 3: Then I scramble down the left column of the first page. I’m looking for the companies you worked for. I’m much more interested in which companies you worked for than the positions you held. Eye-Glance 4: Then I look at the entire second page all at once. This entire eye-glancing escapade takes me no longer than six seconds. How do you decide to keep reviewing the resume? Now, I need to decide whether to delete the resume or whether to review it. I stress the word review because anyone who has time to read your entire resume has too much time on his or her hands. Want to know what I’m looking for? What’s the 5-second magic pill?! Why did you open this post? It was one of two reasons. You either know and love me and thought omigawd, Andy has another amazing post and I just have to watch (listen or read). Otherwise, you had no clue who I was, but saw the headline telling you some dude promises you resume glory in five seconds. I’m guessing the latter. Regardless of your reason, you need to interrupt the recruiter’s mind-numbing review process by giving her something she’ll love—right away. It’ll be your analogous “headline.” She wants to know you’ll bring value to her organization. The easiest way to do this is by encapsulating who you are professionally—in aggregate—and also highlighting your (likely three most) valuable contributions. I suggest doing this in a Career Profile section at the very top followed immediately by a Career Highlights section immediately underneath. I’ve already given you the exact formula and language in How to Build the Ultimate Professional Resume (http://milewalk.com/mwblog/build-ultimate-professional-resume-andrew-lacivita/). I’ve also given you the templates whether you need a professional or collegiate resume.

10 Tips to Make Your Resume Fit 2 Pages

Length matters.

This is a long-debated topic amongst us resume writers and I’m expecting I’m going to take some heat for this video.

I believe in page parameters and limitations.

Not because of some arbitrary rule. Not that 2 pages is better than 1 is better than 3 is better than 5.

It’s because page parameters are there to provide structure, and help you as the job seeker to list the important things, not ALL the things.

This video will cover:

1. Margins

2. Font Size

3. Indents

4. Whitespace

5. Bullets

6. Not using your resume as a diary

7. Consolidate Short-Term Contracts

8. Using accomplishments as a Highlights Reel

9. What to do with old or singular volunteer experience

10. Education

Where are you struggling with getting your resume to fit page parameters? Comment below and we’ll see if we can help.
