4 signs your resume needs work

I'll be honest with you, 99% of resumes that I see are pretty terrible.


Even when a prospective client tells me they think their resume is good, it usually is far from it!


So how about your resume? Is it any good? Not sure?

4 signs your resume needs work

Here are 4 signs that your resume might need some work


#1: You are embarrassed to show it to anyone.

When a recruiter asks to see it, you fob them off and decide that you don't mind your current role and are happy staying where you are. Even though you actually hate it!


A resume should showcase who you are and sell your top skills, achievements and unique selling points. You should feel proud of who you are and what you've achieved in your career - and your resume should reflect this.


#2: It's in the same format and font that you used when you finished uni.

You've just added more and more to it over the years. It doesn't look nice and doesn't include any achievements or mention your skills. It's probably in Times New Roman font and the entire thing is in a table with weird formatting. It's really long and detailed. It doesn't sell you.


#3: It includes any of the following:

  • Your address

  • Your date of birth

  • Your marital status

  • A cover page

  • The words 'resume' or 'curriculum vitae'

  • Your interests

Your resume does not require any of the above items. The first three dot points might cause bias in the application process. The second three are just not required.


#4: You aren't getting interviews

This one is self explanatory, and is probably because it isn't in the modern expected format, doesn't sell you, and doesn't include any keywords related to the jobs you are applying for.


If any of the above points resonates with you, it might be time to get some professional help!


There are 2 main ways you can work with me on your resume:

  1. Not Just a Resume Template Program ($127 or $347 with an editing consult)

  2. Next Level Career Package ($1497, or $1997 with interview coaching)
