The Scientific Version of your resume getting a interview - Laura Hoff

The Scientific Version of your resume getting a interview - Laura Hoff, Scientific Recruiter at VERUM Staffing

Order of your Resume:

The order in which you lay out your resume can also affect your chances. In our prior resume articles we went over the basic parts of the resume, but we will give a basic “order of go” here. The order you should place your resume in is as follows: Heading/Contact Info, Objective (if you choose to include it), Education, Relevant Skills/Coursework, Employment/Research/Other Employment, and “Filler” (fillers include professional memberships/certifications, awards, and relevant presentations/publications, patents). Keeping your resume in this order gives the company or recruiter the best chance to find the important information quickly and easily. If you have held a position in industry, your experience may be included before the skills section. For a recent college graduate, the skills section should generally come first, unless you have held a full or part time relevant job or internship while attending school.

No of Pages in a Resume:

A standard rule for resume length is as follows: for 1-3 years of experience use one page, for 3-5 years use two pages, and for 5+ years it’s ok to use three pages. As we stated in our previous article, if you have information you feel is critical for the company to know…include it. But be sure that the information is relevant and highlights only the major skills or duties of that position.

Spelling and Grammar:

Another very common reason resumes may get thrown out is if they contain too many grammar or spelling errors. There are few things more damaging than mentioning that you “have strong attention to detail,” only to have multiple errors in your resume. Most scientific positions will involve state or federal regulations that must be followed to a T. If you can’t or won’t double check your own work in your resume, it doesn’t leave the employer with a great impression of how well you would pay attention to small details on the job!

Dates of Employment:

The final piece of the puzzle we’ll discuss in this article are the dates of employment on your resume. Dates that are missing, unclear, or out of date entirely will look at best like messy work on your part, and at worst like you are trying to hide something. Your dates of employment should be clear (month and year), and any large gaps between employment should be addressed (ie. If you were not working for a few months in order to travel, or tend to a family emergency, a short sentence on your resume can explain this). 

Updated Resume:

Remember to keep your resume updated not only on your computer, but any job boards you may have your resume on as well. For example, if you have your resume on a job board, but do not update it in a year, it sends a few messages to recruiters or companies looking at your resume. First, you may have missed some new role or job you have recently assumed, so they have no idea if you are still at the company listed as your most recent employer. And second, if you are not updating on a regular basis you may look like an uninterested job seeker who can’t be bothered too much with the search.

The most important piece of advice to take away from this article, is that your resume is a reflection of you as a candidate. Whether your resume if professional, up-to-date, and relevant leaves a recruiter or company with a much more positive view of you as a candidate. A resume that is colorful, outdated, and generic won’t leave nearly such a good impression. Remember that as a job seeker, your primary job is getting the job! Let recruiters and companies see you as a quality candidate by putting effort and polish into your resume. Good luck!

Appearance in your Profile

Appearance in your Profile

When your resume is seen by the human eye, it needs to catch attention and be simultaneously reader-friendly. Research indicates that employers rank easy readability as the most important resume point in terms of first impressions.

Avoid instantly recognizable Microsoft Word resume templates. Employers have seen a million of them, so they don't stand out. They are also somewhat inflexible and contain problematic formatting. "Using a template or any kind of boilerplate to demonstrate your value to a company is the worst thing you can do to yourself when job hunting," says Nick Corcodilos of Ask The Headhunter. 

Ensure that the appearance of your resume holds up when you transmit it electronically. If you are regularly sending your resume as an e-mail attachment, you may want to experiment with sending it to friends' computers to ensure that the formatting appears consistently from computer to computer, however using Resume Blaster you don't need to worry about the formatting as what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) and we highly recommend the profile owners to visit and provide us with valuable feedback

Display your name boldly and in a large font at the top of your resume to project confidence; a small name makes the job-seeker look timid.

We recommend a resume body font no smaller than 10.5 points and no larger than 12 points. Type at 11 points is often the best choice for resumes. Don't use justified text blocks; they put odd little spaces between words. Instead, make your type flush left. Employ some typographic variety -- judicious use of bold and italics. You can use up to two different fonts on your resume, and make sure they are readable. Avoid underlining because it adds clutter to your resume.

Include pleasing white space on your resume, but don't go overboard. The default margin setting in Microsoft Word is 1.25", but you'll have an easier time fitting everything in if you set your margins at .75" to 1".

For a "print" resume -- used for networking, career fairs, taking to the interview, and mailing to the employer -- include some design elements, such as rule lines, to give your resume graphic interest. We also strongly recommend a bulleted style to make your resume more reader-friendly. Most employers prefer bullets and dislike the density of type seen in a paragraph format.

Be sure your headings and sections are clearly marked and information can be located easily.

Some job-seekers damage the appearance of their resumes by trying to squeeze a lot of information onto one page. Don't be afraid to go to a two-page resume. Two pages is totally acceptable and even expected for those with higher levels of experience.

Biggest Mistakes in Resume


Biggest Mistakes in Resume, 

Laszlo BockSVP, People Operations at Google

This post originally appeared at LinkedIn. 

I have seen a lot of resumes. Some are brilliant, most are just ok, many are disasters. The toughest part is that for 15 years, I've continued to see the same mistakes made again and again by candidates, any one of which can eliminate them from consideration for a job. What’s most depressing is that I can tell from the resumes that many of these are good, even great, people. But in a fiercely competitive labor market, hiring managers don't need to compromise on quality. All it takes is one small mistake and a manager will reject an otherwise interesting candidate.

Mistake 1: Typos

This one seems obvious, but it happens again and again. A 2013 CareerBuilder survey found that 58% of resumes have typos. In fact, people who tweak their resumes the most carefully can be especially vulnerable to this kind of error, because they often result from going back again and again to fine tune your resume just one last time. And in doing so, a subject and verb suddenly don't match up, or a period is left in the wrong place, or a set of dates gets knocked out of alignment. I see this in MBA resumes all the time. Typos are deadly because employers interpret them as a lack of detail-orientation, as a failure to care about quality. 

The fix? 

Read your resume from bottom to top: reversing the normal order helps you focus on each line in isolation. Or have someone else proofread closely for you.

Mistake 2: Length

A good rule of thumb is one page of resume for every 10 years of work experience. Hard to fit it all in, right? But a three or four or 10-page resume simply won't get read closely. As Blaise Pascal wrote, “I would have written you a shorter letter, but I did not have the time.” A crisp, focused resume demonstrates an ability to synthesize, prioritize, and convey the most important information about you. Think about it this way: the sole purpose of a resume is to get you an interview. That’s it. It’s not to convince a hiring manager to say “yes” to you (that’s what the interview is for) or to tell your life’s story (that’s what a patient spouse is for). Your resume is a tool that gets you to that first interview. Once you're in the room, the resume doesn't matter much. So cut back your resume. It’s too long.

Mistake 3: Formatting

Unless you're applying for a job such as a designer or artist, your focus should be on making your resume clean and legible. At least 10-point font. At least half-inch margins. White paper, black ink. Consistent spacing between lines, columns aligned, your name and contact information on every page. If you can, look at it in both Google Docs and Word, and then attach it to an email and open it as a preview. Formatting can get garbled when moving across platforms. Saving it as a PDF is a good way to go.

Mistake 4: Confidential information

I once received a resume from an applicant working at a top-three consulting firm. This firm had a strict confidentiality policy: client names were never to be shared. On the resume, the candidate wrote: “Consulted to a major software company in Redmond, Washington.” Rejected! There’s an inherent conflict between your employer’s needs (keep business secrets confidential) and your needs (show how awesome I am so I can get a better job). So candidates often find ways to honor the letter of their confidentiality agreements but not the spirit. It’s a mistake. While this candidate didn’t mention Microsoft specifically, any reviewer knew that’s what he meant. In a very rough audit, we found that at least 5-10% of resumes reveal confidential information. Which tells me, as an employer, that I should never hire those candidates…unless I want my own trade secrets emailed to my competitors.

The New York Times test is helpful here: if you wouldn't want to see it on the homepage of the NYT with your name attached (or if your boss wouldn't!), don’t put it on your resume.

Mistake 5: Lies

This breaks my heart. Putting a lie on your resume is never, ever, ever, worth it. Everyone, up to and including CEOs, get fired for this. (Google “CEO fired for lying on resumes” and see.) People lie about their degrees (three credits shy of a college degree is not a degree), GPAs (I’ve seen hundreds of people “accidentally” round their GPAs up, but never have I seen one accidentally rounded down—never), and where they went to school (sorry, but employers don’t view a degree granted online for “life experience” as the same as UCLA or Seton Hall). People lie about how long they were at companies, how big their teams were, and their sales results, always goofing in their favor.

There are three big problems with lying:

  • You can easily get busted. 
  • The internet, reference checks, and people who worked at your company in the past can all reveal your fraud.
  • Lies follow you forever.

Successful Resume - A Key

Regardless of the content one thing that we cannot stand and the one thing I think most recruiters can agree upon is the FORMATTING! This is the KEY to your Resume. It can truly be the one thing that will make or break your resume when it hits my desk for viewing. Here are a few reasons as to why the formatting is so important:

Easy Eye Flow

6 Seconds! If you do not have simple, easy to follow, formatting then you will simply be placed aside. We need to have a style or some type of format to follow that can lead the interviewer eyes to the key points on your resume. Otherwise, it will get lost.

Easy to Read

Along with eye flow people have to READ your resume. There could be situation where we cannot read your resume because of the style of text you choose. DO NOT lose out on a job because you want to get creative on the text style. Keep it simple. Times is classic.

Pin-pointing to your skills

This comes into play with the combination of points 1 & 2. When you have an easy flow with your format and a good, easy to read, text then point 3 takes care of itself. With the right format and simple text then everything should lead me to your key points. Make your name bigger than the rest of the text up top. Have some type of contact info. List your education and dates of completion. List your professional experience that is relevant to the position and dates of work. Tailor your skills/experience from a job to fit the job description you are applying to but only if you have/used the skills. DO NOT LIE on a resume!

It is simple to keep the attention for more than 6 seconds if you have the right skills for a job. However, if you do not FORMAT your resume for be able to read it then, people will not waste more than 3 seconds on your resume. Make sure to use Resume Blaster resources to build a resume. Keep it simple but to the point. You can add flare but in a noninvasive way on the information. We are not saying that having a poor format will not get you a job, as many have found jobs with poor formatting - if any at all. We are saying that in an overcrowded market of candidates it doesn't hurt to stand out in a good way.

LinkedIn Vs Profile - Comparison

Things Employers Look For In LinkedIn And Resume Comparison

1. Expertise.

Anyone can write on their resume that they have over 10 years of experience in the field of XYZ, but does that really mean you have expertise and knowledge of the practice? Employers will be looking at recommendations received, endorsements to specific skills, groups you’ve joined and even links to any published content you have. In particular, someone with a lot of recommendations and skills endorsements will be contacted first.

2. People in common.

When someone finds you on LinkedIn, they will also see if you know anyone in common. This lets them check references and see the kinds of relationships you have.

3. Employment.

Did you work for the companies you indicated on your resume? Are the dates of employment the same? Did you hold the title of the position stated on your resume? Anything verging from what you have are your resume is a red flag to the prospective employer.

4. Education.

Employers will look at the educational institution attended, areas of study, and if you have indicated receiving a degree on your resume that that information would also appear on your LinkedIn profile. If such information is missing, it would hint at some sketchiness on your resume.

In today’s job market, just about anyone who’s serious about job searching will have a LinkedIn profile. To not have one is telling prospective employers you are not up with the modern age. So, before you apply to any other job openings, make sure your LinkedIn profile is updated to reflect information you have on your resume. It doesn't need to be the same word-for-word, but the basic gist of the information must come off the same. Employers will be looking!

Resume Blaster will help you to create and maintain LinkedIn profile, email us at for more information.

Focus on your Profile

Focus on your Profile

A sharp focus is an extremely important resume element. Given that employers screen resumes for as few as 6 seconds, a resume should show the employer at a glance what you want to do and what you're good at. Studies have shown that employers wanted resumes to show a clear match between the applicant and a particular job's requirements. A "general" resume that is not focused on a specific job's requirements is seen as not competitive. 

One way to sharpen your focus is through verbiage at the top of your resume that instantly catches the reader's eye and identifies the area(s) in which you can make a contribution.

This verbiage can take one of several -- or a combination -- of forms:

A "headline," usually simply the title of the position you're applying for, which can be adjusted for every job you apply for.

A branding statement, a punchy "ad-like" statement that tells immediately what you can bring to an employer.

The headline and branding statement are often used in combination. 

Specialize in raising the bar, creating strategy, managing risk, and improving the quality and calibre of operations.

Specific verbiage at the top of your resume is always better than a vague or general wording.

Note that objective statements have long been used -- with varying degrees of success -- to sharpen the focus of resumes, but they are currently out of fashion with employers.

To sharpen your focus, consider a section such as a "Summary of Qualifications," "Profile," or the like. Such a section, in a reader-friendly bulleted format can contribute to powerful resume opener that draws the reader in; it can be part of the top third of resume that showcases your best selling points, catches the prospective employer's attention, and immediately demonstrates your value as a candidate.

A Summary/Profile section can contain:

  • Title/functional area/level of your current position and/or position you seek.
  • Number of years of experience (which, for age-discrimination reasons, should not exceed 15-20; "15+" is a good guideline for mature workers)
  • Industry you're in or seeking to be in.
  • Core competencies/areas of expertise/strengths/specialization for that field.
  • Highlights of representative accomplishments, especially used to demonstrate skills and competencies you've used throughout your career.
  • Top business, leadership, craft-related skills, both "hard skills" and "soft skills" (such as communication, interpersonal, teamwork).
  • "Value-added" information: Skills/accomplishments/experience that add to your value because they are not necessarily expected of someone with your background (e.g., operations manager with deep knowledge of IT).
  • Any advanced degrees, certifications, or licenses that are integral to the type of job you seek.
  • Language and international business skills, if relevant.
  • Technical/computer skills, instead of burying them at the bottom of your resume (Exception: IT professionals, who should place IT skills in a separate section).
  • Personality /management style: Open a little window into your personality with your Summary/Profile (e.g., mention sense of humor)
  • Affiliations if integral to the job, otherwise in a separate section.
  • Any extremely prestigious colleges, employers, or clients.
  • Quantification whenever possible, using numbers for, e.g., revenue generated, size of accounts, typical budgets, money saved, etc.
  • Positive quotes, testimonials from supervisors, clients, taken from memos, letters, performance evaluations.
  • Awards you've earned, such as Employee of the Month and President's Club, can also be listed in the Summary/Profile section to give them more up-front attention than if they were listed in their own section.
  • Keywords/buzzwords from ads or job postings you're responding to.

Your Profile section should not be anywhere nearly that long. Choose 3-4 of your top selling points and craft them into bullets for your Profile section.

Objective Can Kill A Resume - Greg Lachs

Objectives in Resume

Most of the objectives we write in the resume and vague, and virtually meaningless. None of them are helpful.

Below are some sample objective

“To grow and be happy.”
“To have an exciting opportunity with XYZ Industries, or any other great job at another company.”
“To obtain a challenging position that utilizes my strengths and skills and offers potential.”
“To pursue employment with a reputable company that will enable me to learn skills in the workplace.”

In a resume, employers look for what you offer – not what you want. An objective is an “I want” statement that doesn’t help.

A recruiter has up to 15 seconds to look through your resume, sometimes half that much time.  The first “real” writing they see is an objective. 

That objective is about what you want, not the employer. Strike One. Usually very vaguely written. Strike Two. Finally, it is the first real impression your resume has made – and it’s not a good one. Strike Three. First impressions can only be made once. Not a great start, is it?

However, you can fix this with a very simple alternative. Take sentence or two and let them know what you specifically have to offer them:

Effective Objectives:

“10 year IT Systems Administrator with Management Experience and Budgeting. Cut Technical Purchase budget by 25% and increased productivity.”

“Sales Professional who has met or exceeded quota over the last five years and has $750,000 in Office Supply Sales in the last 2 years.”

“Administrative Recruiter with 5 years of experience placing talent in Fortune 500 companies.”

The formula:

Your Title/Profession + experience + accomplishment

New to the field? Substitute your education or training for experience. For an accomplishment, that can be from a previous job in another field – or through your volunteer work. Something that anyone might appreciate.

“Business Analyst with MBA and 5 years Volunteer Experience with 211.”

“Technical Support Professional with A+ Certification and Customer Service Experience.”

“Accountant with BA in Business Management and Quickbooks Experience.”

“Electrical Engineer with BSEE and Winner of Sr. Technical Project Award from Syracuse University.”

The short “Summary” you have provided is much more likely to get positive attention at the first glance. The recruiter is likely to read it a bit more carefully; you’ve given her a good reason to.

Just put “Summary” where “Objective” would have been and then use the formula.

Bring your resume “back to life” so you can showcase the talent, experience and education you offer in a way that gets the interest you deserve.

Resume Tips

  • Resume doesn't get you the job. It gets you the interview.
  • People are busy. Your resume will be skimmed.
  • Lose the objective. We know you want the job.
  • Education: Don’t include anything before college. Only include GPA if it’s impressive.
  • Move education to the end.
  • It’s not what you know. It’s what you’ve done with what you know.
  • Highlight your accomplishments, not your job duties.
  • Use past tense. Coordinated vs Coordinate. Designed vs Design. Planned vs Plan.
  • Relevant Experience
    • Internships, summer jobs, Volunteer work, Research projects, Clubs/orgs.
  • Customize your resume to the job. Pull words from the job description and use them in your resume.
  • Review all of the experiences on your resume. Think of 3-5 accomplishments per experience.
  • Accomplishments don’t have to be groundbreaking.
  • Make/save money for the company?
  • Increase productivity or save time for the company?
  • Events, activities, and projects you planned and implemented? Their Results?
  • Involved in notable projects? Notable clients? Results of the team?
  • Did you get to use your writing skills? Purpose of writing?
  • Action/Benefit Statements
    • Action = Responsibility
    • Benefit = Results
  • Quantify your statements.
    • BEFORE: Supervised staff of retail employees and planned promotions to grow profits.
    • AFTER: Managed 20 employees, planned and executed 30 promotions, consistently generating 30-35% gross profit.
  • Legibility is your goal. Don’t over stylize. No more than two fonts. Avoid ALL CAPS. Minimize underlining.
  • Have somebody else read your resume and proof it.
  • Narrow down the contact info. You don’t need address, email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, blog, website, cell phone, mom’s phone…
  • “ The only people who get paid enough, get paid what they're worth, are people who don't follow the instruction book, who create art, who are innovative, who work without a map.” - Seth Godin

A potential employer may indicate their desire for candidates with SWOT experience in a job posting. However, simply stating you have experience with SWOT analysis won't work on a resume. Demonstrate your understanding of the process and prior success to stand out to a hiring manager reading your resume.

Tips for Instantly Improving your job search


Tips for Instantly Improving your job search

Profile Are Not Read On Paper Anymore

Most organizations are not receiving paper resumes and when they get them via email or their application system, they don’t print them. So, expect your profile to be read on a computer screen. This means you have to format your documents in a way that makes screen-scanning easy.  By using Resume Blaster you will have a standard format which is uniform and a readable format.

Web & Social Networking Has Replaced the Resume

Recruiters are now using web and networking sites to searches to find talent, instead of paying for a talent databases like they used to do. In fact, many companies wants new application go through a Google screening process. That means the first page of your Google results matter much more than they ever did before during a job search and by using Resume Blaster and RBID Link you will be the first one in the results.

Summary Is Enough

Profile is used mostly in the screening process while actual decisions are made after interviews. There are so many candidates competing for each job, HR people or hiring managers often scan resumes very briefly. Researchers say that the average time on a resume is 30 seconds.

Social Profile Is a Must

Social profile, testimonials, or recommendations seriously reduce the perceived risk of you as a candidate.

Relationships First, Profile Second

Profiles are not used as introductory documents much these days. In fact, “Send me your profile” is often an afterthought after an introduction is made. And if an introduction is made online, then your online profile offers much more information than a resume.

What They Want

In years past, a profile or job application was focused on what the job seeker wanted. This is not true anymore. Now an application, profile or cover letter must speak to what value the seeker can bring to the organization. How can you bring value to the company and how soon can the company realize that value.
