American Resume: A Requirement for a US Job SearchTweet
Hiring managers and human resource departments look at a lot of resumes. They might receive dozens — even hundreds — of resumes for a single position. If they don’t immediately see what they’re looking for on your resume, chances are they’ll skip immediately to the next resume in their pile.
What makes an American resume different? An American resume is:
- Short. Most resumes, especially for students and recent graduates, are less than one page long.
- Easy-to-Read. American resumes include many bullet points and keywords that allow employers to quickly scan the document.
- Specific. There are unwritten rules not only about what you should include (skills, experience, academic achievements), but also about what you should not include (your age, race, religion and more).
University Language’s new resume writing service for current students and recent graduates provides you with an American resume in a matter of days — or even hours.
Believe me. I know that searching for a job is stressful. It’s even more stressful if you aren’t sure if your resume is the right length or includes the right information.
You can spend hours writing and rewriting your own American resume. Or you can spend that time looking for a job and leave the resume writing to University Language.
