Comparing 25 IT CVs in 1990 to 25 in 2014

This infographic – comparing the differences in CVs/résumés across 25 years in the IT industy in the UK – is no ordinary infographic. You’ll see that the main infographic itself is really text-light- this was done on purpose, as we wanted to try something different… What we also did was to ‘dissect’ the infographic, i.e. publishing each section as a standalone image with supporting text underneath each image/section, giving our findings. The ‘dissected’ version can be seen by visiting the source URL.

How to Write a Rockin’ Resume

Hello,

I just wanted to submit an infographic for you to consider publishing on your website. It’s all about writing a resume.

Here is some helpful information about it. Please feel free to change the description if you wish.

Title: How to Write A Rockin’ Resume

Description:

When it comes to finding a job, your resume is arguably one of the most important components to impressing future employers.

From the type of font you use to your email address – details both big and small help shape an employer’s first impression.

CollegeAtlas.org’s newest infographic provides tips for crafting a resume that’s sure to impress.

For example, job seekers are encouraged to use tailed keywords more than once in a resume. That’s because 53% of hiring managers say that it is of utmost importance that a candidate tailor the resume to the specific job.

You should also delete that objective section. It has no bearing on whether or not a resume is considered.

So, break out your resume and see if it’s up to employers’ standards. One little tweak could help you land that coveted interview.

The one page resume you put together in high school might have landed you a lifeguarding job, but it will not get that $80,000 plus executive position today. It’ll sink right to the bottom of the hiring manager’s recycling bin.
If you’re trying to move up the corporate ladder, it’s time to give your resume a professional makeover.

The Dishonest Tradition of Fudging the Facts on a Resume

We all fudge the facts sometimes; from how big the fish we
caught was to how old we are. Sometimes we do it to impress somebody, sometimes
we do it to make ourselves look better, whatever the reason sometimes our fact
fudging has consequences. One incident that our fact fudging could have serious
consequences is on a resume.  Fudging the
facts on a resume is one of the most common ways people stretch the truth. However,
before you stretch the truth, fudge some facts, or down right lie on the next
resume you submit keep in mind that many employers are starting to spend more
time looking, researching, and reviewing resumes. For more information on
fudging the facts on a resume check out the attached infographic.
