Update: Merry Christmas everyone! I will be pumping through as many of these as I can this week until the first 2 weeks of the new year.
Update: some people cannot be sent messages due to your settings, please check them before posting a request
After having reviewed resumes for 100s of friends, colleagues, and students I have a knack for reviewing them As such I want to offer to review your resume as a freebie.
After working in both a university careers service as well as having hired multiple interns, volunteers, and staff members across various organisations I know that resumes are a challenge for many.
I am doing this because I have been inspired by my friend @epicsaletime who is helping out 30 OzBargan users in reviewing their LinkedIn profiles. We are having a friendly challenge between us because we want to see how we can potentially make this service commercially viable and we want to to help as many people as possible in the process
I can send you an example of my resume on request and my LinkedIn is also viewable at the link below
Important Guidelines: Replace any personal details that you would like as follows: [mobile] etc or use a pseudonym (fictional details)
The following things should also never be on your resume, please take them out before you send your resume:
- Date of Birth
- Home Address
These things cannot be part of any hiring decision but avoiding any subconscious bias is in your best interest. It can be tough to mask things like gender and ethnicity if it shows through your name but these do not have to be listed as information dot points at all.
To redeem: please comment below, I cannot yet PM you as I am a new member but I will do so as soon as I can in the order of comments below.
