How many readers here are currently looking for jobs? Unless you are able to call on the resources of savvy IT technicians, no one knows for certain. But to make a guestimate, thousands of online visitors are currently going through online resume samples to see how they could apply a single sample to just one (of many) job applications, now mostly done online. If such figures seem ludicrously ambitious, then at least dozens, never mind hundreds, of would-be job applicants are looking for the right resume fit.
So, what have you noticed so far? Not much if you are still new to this. But you will kick yourself otherwise. That is to say that from high school to college, and from college into the job hunting pool, you have already spent thousands of hours surfing the internet. Perhaps you have not spent all that time looking for a job. Not even one hundred hours yet? At least a dozen by now, surely. And so far so good, what you have just witnessed is the familiar online reading and research trick of narrowing down your choices or options.
You probably did this already when sampling the colleges that gave you the green light to submit an application. You do not need a green light to apply for a job. Everyone has that right. It is just a question of time. It is just a matter of being able to find the right fit and then making it stick. Do make sure that you study your potential employer’s online job application submissions guidelines carefully.
You can use that criteria to lift a resume sample that comes close to the format being sought after. Finally, always note that your resume is never going to be longer than two pages.
