Next Steps
The State of the Job Market
2024 Continues
to be Uncertain
 Interest rates won’t fall until later this year,
which means hiring is on pause.
 AI continues to be remain a hot field, and
threatens employment.
 Job hunting will remain competitive.
What is a Resume?
The Hiring Hierarchy
The Hiring Hierarchy
What is a
Resume?
 A marketing document that showcases your
capabilities.
 A proof-of-concept asset that guides the hiring
process
 A conversation starter that enables the right
interview questions.
 A relevant history of what you’ve done that
proves you can do it again.
It doesn’t need to be any more complicated than
this.
JOB SEARCH PROCESS
RECRUITER SCREEN
• Shows that your resume passes
the initial screening
INITIAL CANDIDATE SCREEN
• Shows that you know your resume
• Shows that you know how your resume relates
to the role
• Provides guidance for the interview
TEAM MEMBER SCREENS
• Shows that you know how your
resume applies to the job
PROJECT ROUND
• Shows that you know what to do
on your resume
REFERENCE ROUND
• Confirms that your resume
is correct
Telling a Story With Your Resume
• Recruiters only read resumes for 6 seconds
on average, at the top left-hand corner.
• It’s important to showcase the most
important items in that area, including:
• Your role
• Summary or highlights of what you
have accomplished
• Skills
• Immediate professional experience
• Don’t make it hard to read your
resume.
• Two-column resumes are distracting;
recruiters don’t know where to look.
• Put the important content at the front.
The Best
Way to Tell
Your
Resume
Story
Name and other identifiers
Summary / Highlights
Skills – categorized and comma separated
Experience – bulleted
Education / certifications
Other Notes
Regarding the
Resume
If you are a new graduate, place
your education between your
summary/highlights and your skills.
The preference is to leave hobbies
off, unless relevant to role.
Leave off “References Upon
Request”
Telling a Story With Your Resume: Impact
GROWTH PRESERVATION INNOVATION
The resume should reflect this
VERB + What the duty was + HOW IT
IMPACTED THE COMPANY + QUANTIFY
THE IMPACT
Connecting Your Resume to the
Interview
An Interview is Two Things
CREATING
EXCITEMENT
REDUCING CONCERN
Your Resume
Needs to
Create Softball
Pitches
The bullets you tell should
accentuate your capabilities.
The stories you tell should
lead you to the right
conversations.
Write the strongest bullets,
get the question you want to
answer.
“How did you do that?”
“What is your process for
driving revenue?”
“What does your program look like?”
“How would you develop something like this for us?”
“How did you do that?”
“How did this impact revenue?”
“How did you do that and what
processes did you use?”
“What tools did you use
to make this happen?”
“What were the
productivity hacks?”
“What strategies did you employ to make this happen?”
