Submitted by user DinahP, long time recruiter for IT placement cloudgrad has quickly become one of the more popular choice for jobs requiring functional AND core-functional formatting due to its clever section placement within the body.
- Your opening statement should be one of the first things someone reads when they pick up your resume. Since your this is basically a headline at the top of your profile, it is one of the first things a potential employer will read. If your headline is impressive and provides useful information about you, consider using a title that reflects the position you are applying for.
- For example, if you are applying for a copywriter position, you might use a headline such as Copywriter.” If you are applying for a marketing director position, you might use a headline such as “Marketing director.”
- You can use this section to highlight your experience and skill set as they relate to the role youƒ??re applying for. Include previous positions youƒ??ve held, the company youƒ??ve worked for, your job title, years of employment, and any notable achievements. If youƒ??re applying for a role in a company, you can also include any leadership roles youƒ??ve held, such as a deputy director or president.
- You might have wondered whether you should use an objective statement or a career summary. Both options are acceptable and it will depend on your experience, career goals and what you want the employer to know about you.

Your input is very much appreciated .
It’s so easy to use, and comes with a hilarious video that shows you how to use it. If you’re serious about getting a job, this is the resume project that you do. I bet you guys never thought about how you’re going to get a job, until it actually starts to look like hard work.
It’s simple, straightforward, to the point, and easy to navigate (and easy to make). You have so much more room to create amazing, amazing content. You have the entire story. You have highlights. You have details. You have passion. You have energy.
It’s so simple and yet it packs a punch. It’s the resume that got me my dream job as a sophomore at a top school in New York. I can’t tell you how many people reach out to me saying that my resume was the best they’ve seen or that they were impressed with my resume.
Without it, I would be working a job that is against my morals, my values, and my interests. It would be a very poor decision to make. But that is exactly what I did. I made the best decision I could with the information I had at the time. And now I am here, applying for the position of my dreams.
I’m 48 years old and have put in over 25,000 hours in my career. I’ve worked in TV, Film, and late in my career I picked up a Associate Producer credit. I’ve also worked for a small production company, and have done some QA testing. The thing is, I’ve taken a. . . I don’t know. . .
I know it’s not perfect, and there are at least a few people out there who would love to have a crack at it, but I’m just not good at life and I don’t think I can be motivated to change what I have into something that is good enough to keep me from getting more rejection mixed into the pile.
I had a bit of trouble coming up with the objective because I have been unemployed for so long (I have a weirdly specific surname that doesn’t lend itself to easy self-identification, nor does it lend itself to “I’m looking for a new job” language). I’m not sure if I should make it more general or specific, and I’m definitely not sure if I should include a cover letter.
I know you’re working on a tough resume, and I know you’re probably freaking out that your already limited time is dwindling, but hold on just a second. I’m going to tell you a little trick that will save you a lot of time.
I know it’s not perfect, and you’re going to piss some people off who have never used a resume before, but it works for me and I’m going to make it work for everybody else. It’s simple, it’s easy to read, and it’s guaranteed to make you look like an asshole in 2 seconds. CHECK IT OUT! . . .
I know it’s not for everyone, and I’m sorry. But I am so damn proud of our community for coming up with something this perfect. I hope it helps you all figure out how to write that perfect resume. Happy job hunting!
