A wonderful resume in the eyes of the hiring manager




The verb list is a project retained in the resume writing guide. The survey also found that the resume is as full of verbs, adjectives and adverbs as possible. Almost all personnel managers like to choose effective words, not a resume with a lot of words.

A few words in the resume will also annoy the HR manager and refuse to continue reading the resume. There are quite a few hiring managers and recruiters who admit that they have a list in their minds that lists the words that make them disgusted.

Although they all said that they were not likely to completely reject the candidates because of these words, they believed that the resumes that used these words to boast were not as impressive as those without them. I have summarized some examples in this column.

For example, an IT company's personnel manager once said that she never likes to see the words Assist or Assisted on her resume. What I want to know is what the candidates (specific) did, not how they helped. If they are familiar enough with a task and want to put it in their resume, they should use better than 'assisting. Word," she explained.

A commentary on employment suggests changing any expression of assistanceto a very specific content, indicating what the candidate did when he assisted. For example, if you help the marketing director study which personal digital assistants (PDAs) can meet the department's needs, then you can write this in your resume: "Researching PDAs for the marketing department." This revision explains the specifics.

For the same reasons as "assistance", the hiring manager does not like the word "experimental". No one wants to hear what you tried to do - just want to hear what you have done. You should not write "Try a new local area network (LAN) management software", but rather "evaluate the LAN management software."

Most hiring managers don't like to hear any words that describe how well someone has done a task. They said that they want to understand the skills associated with this person, and hope that they are the judges of the work effect of this person. Therefore, words like Skillfully, Effectively, Carefully, Quickly, Expert, Mastered, and the like are all self-defeating.

In the middle of all the words mentioned above, any word derived from a skillespecially Skillfullywill only cause more ridicule than a (hearted) laugh. Employers and recruiters prefer to see modesty rather than bragging in the candidate's resume.

"If you are not very good at it, why do you put it in your resume?" one recruiter said.
