Writing your own résumé and need a bit of help!
Seconds matter when a recruiter reviews your résumé and decides to call you for an interview or look at someone else. I don't have to tell you that you need to make those seconds count, especially if you're at a (traditional) director level or earlier in your career.
There's also the widespread and non-standardized use of applicant tracking systems (ATS) to consider and plan your document around. Pro tip: In my experience, many of the same hiring entities who create and use ATS systems, don't understand ATS themselves! I've worked with ATS developers, heads of HR, and consultants who recommend ATS for Fortune 100 human resources teams—and to a head, each has asked for my advice about optimizing their own résumé for ATS.
If you're writing your own résumé, make those recruiter review seconds count, and do your best to understand how applicant tracking systems work, as well as how to anticipate and design / write for their use.
