The resumé—so much rests on a sheet or two of paper. Knowing that yours might end up in a big stack (or a crowded email inbox) how do you help it stand out? We asked a team of professionals to share their best advice. Here’s what they had to say:
Philip Ruffini is currently a Product Manager at Microsoft and the founder of hackingpm.com. He is a graduate from the University of Michigan where he studied business and computer science. He is formally a Product Manager at ZX-Ventures.
Don’t include everything
My #1 resume tip that I think most people mess up is don’t include everything. It is only going to be two to three really impressive things that land you an interview, not all of the small things that you have done over the years.
A recruiter will only read your resume for five to 10 seconds and you want them to read the impressive content right away, not have to find it in the crowd of bullets. Be short, concise, and to the point.
