Every day I get dozens of resumes from people who want me to critique their resume. And in most cases, they all have the same problem. They are written from their point of view, listing the roles and responsibilities they have had over the years. They assume that someone will read their resume and then figure out how they can be used in their company. You have all probably heard that someone will spend 7-10 seconds scanning your resume So that means that the only people who will read your resume is usually you, your spouse and maybe your mother.
