More on Bad Resumes

Kent Nolen

Last week, I talked a bit about what a specific corporate client shared about a specific candidate. I've spent part of this last week consulting with another corporate client on an executive search that their senior team is conducting. Doing so reminded be of an even better answer to the question posed last week.

What do I hear companies complain about (in terms of talent acquisition)?

Resumes that read like a series of job descriptions.

My message this week is short.

Do not submit a resume that reads like a series of mini-job-descriptions outlining your previous work experience.
