My advice for your resume

Here are two ways we can help you keep your resume polished this year: Ladders Resume Guide 2020 and our extensive set of resume templates for 73 different specialties, including yours.

Ladders Resume Guide

I released this book on Amazon a month ago and it’s still the #1 best seller in the Resumes category.

There are a few reasons why.

It’s designed to be read in about 90 minutes. I know you’re busy. So I cover everything you need to know in an hour-and-a-half. I figured that’s about the length of a typical plane ride, so this book will help you make good use of that down time in the sky.

The advice is based on our 15+ years of experience here at Ladders seeing what works in the $100K – $500K professional job search. Remember, HR professionals and recruiters are very busy people. So a resume needs to be the right length, with the right emphasis on your past performance, and the best statement of what you’re looking for next.

I address these topics in detail:

  • The 25 specific verbs to power your bullet points. No more thesaurus, no more guessing.
  • Precisely how long your resume should be at 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30 years of experience.
  • Which email provider to use so you stand out… for the right reasons.
  • How to pack your professional summary with desired job titles, accomplishments and skills to attract attention from your future boss.
  • A correct definition of what a resume is — and isn’t — to keep your efforts focused on doing things that matter.
  • Specific examples of how to organize and craft your resume.

…and much, much more. You can buy Resume Guide, and its companion Ladders Interviews Guide, on Amazon now.
