Can anyone tell me what you are actually looking for when a resume comes across your desk?
First off I’d like to say that I feel the whole process can be a bit subjective depending on who’s reading a resume and even what time of the day they pick up that packet of papers.

I feel this year my resume was the best it’s ever been, I tailored it to the exact positions, I included all pertinent information, and I feel it shows my 15 years of experience rather well. My supervisors have even told others to have me help with their resumes.

The only reason I ask is because I’ve talked with people who say to write it all out, all the way back to S-130 and taking out the trash. I’ve also talked to people who say to only show your most recent accomplishments, but I’ve never heard it from you guys.

I like many others have once again been passed over for jobs that were offered to people at a much lower level, I’m just trying to figure out how I can do better next time, only because quitting before I get a pension just doesn’t make sense.
