What is focus in a resume and why should mine be sharp?
- It is imperative that you catch a prospective employer’s attention within the first few seconds of reading your resume.
- People today are busy and often don’t spend more than a minute or two scanning resumes, so you have to sell yourself quickly and concisely.
- Be sure when you are crafting your Summary of Qualifications / Profile area to highlight those skills that apply to your job objective.
- Remember that your objective is your "thesis statement" – proceed from there.
