Keep it simple, smartie

The word on the street these days (Alexandrea Cass) is to keep the resume basic—even though technology and video and Skype interviews swarm around the scene.

One page. Summing up your experience. Go easy on the wild fonts and colors.

Too original means flaky. Toss.

The one thing you need to do is key each res to the opening. Have more than one version or fine-tune it.

Play back keywords the company used in the opening notice.

Then—in your cover letter—send the resume to a specific person.

Don’t say things like “experienced” this or that…show it.

And proof it!
