Almagreta just released Resume Myths vs. Facts infographic which highlights resume writing misconceptions and provide hard facts from HR officers, recruiters and career coaches to help job seekers land the job.
April 22, 2014 (Newswire) - Almagreta today announced the release of Resume Myths vs. Facts, the infographic that brings to light what HR officers and recruiters are looking for in a resume. It sums up the makings of a successful resume which will allow applicants, whether fresh graduates or professionals, to get closer to landing the job they are aiming for, and clarifies some misconceptions or outdated views on the recruitment and selection process.
Resume Myths vs. Facts reveals that job seekers who usually condense their qualifications into a single page are not offering enough information to employers. One-paged resumes may be acceptable for fresh graduates but not for professionals. Moreover, it notes that PDFs can make an applicant invisible amid hundreds of resumes that are normally submitted for a particular job opening. According to the infographic, a resume prepared in Microsoft Word can do a better job of getting the applicant noticed especially if imbued with colors that represent one's personality or career background.
"We want to give job seekers a quick rundown of the key considerations for employment to help increase their chances of getting to the interview phase. As the initial step to recruitment, submitting a visually-impressive and well-organized resume is crucial to move ahead of the rest," related Kay Ravier, Marketing VP of Almagreta. "Creating this infographic has been enlightening and fun. We are very excited to share it to job applicants everywhere and help them start updating their resumes to achieve the best possible results."
"The contents captured in the infographic not only address common mistakes made by job applicants but also help bridge the gap between the employers' expectations in a strong candidate for a certain position and how applicants should present their credentials to meet the job's qualifications upon first glance. Resume Myths vs. Facts is a simple yet informative resource for anyone who plans to upgrade his resume in order to move up the organizational chart," said Gabriel Kelly, HR analytics manager at a Fortune 500 company.
"Applying for a job post, especially one that I have set my sights on, is never easy. I know I'm competing with several other applicants so how do I grab the recruiter's attention? Whenever I get rejected right away, without even having a shot at an interview, I often wonder what I did wrong. I'm glad I found Resume Myths vs. Facts because it helped set me in the right direction. The infographic gives a gist of what works and why a resume fails making it a must-read before doing an overhaul on a resume," recounted Ann Wong, a senior accountant.
