For many, the new year is the perfect time to rethink your career. With that in mind, Bradford Goodwin, Chief Content Strategist at job board Lensa shared his top tips for job seekers in 2022:
Cut out the boilerplate - “I am a hard-working individual who wants to work in X industry” - takes up valuable real estate in your resume and says nothing about you.
Unless you’re a recent graduate, move your education below your employment experience.
Go over any acronyms and write out the full title - this will help applicant tracking systems pick it up.
Swap out generic, overused adjectives like “detail-oriented” for more specific language that has your authentic voice.
Make your resume skimmable by breaking it into sections.
Ready to put that advice to the test? I received an email this week from Darlene Liebman, founder of Creative Humans, who asked that I share these opportunities:
