I was reminded this week by a friend who is currently interviewing Salesforce candidates for his company.
“Chris, what’s up with all grammatical errors, poor formatting, randomness, and overall low quality of the resumes I’m reviewing?”
Unfortunately, I’ve become partially numb to this after so many years.
Are we in a time, where the demand for our skills and experience are so strong that we can let the “little” things of a professional, well thought out, and grammatical free resume be a low priority?
While I don’t think resumes tell the complete story of someone, it is a critical element in the evaluation process.
The good news is: if you have a good resume put together, you’re miles ahead of your competition.
