Brian had also presented two potentially disqualifying factors on his original résumé: (1) his age and (2) his lack of a college education. To overcome these factors, we presented information only back to 1985 on his new résumé—appropriate for a senior manager who is expected to possess a certain amount of experience in order to qualify for the role—and omitted his Education section, entirely replacing it with a much more impressive Professional Development section.
Brian’s new résumé, through the new formatting and content approach, was just 2 pages in length with 1,100 words as opposed to his original résumé of 3 pages and 935 words, demonstrating the much more effective utilization of spacing, language, keywords, and prioritization.
Brian’s success… Brian emailed us to communicate how pleased he was with his new image, stating, “I could not have been happier with my experience and end product!”
