30 Second Test

Veteran

KAT KALISKI Temple, TX

Hello:

Looking for some feedback on my resume. Ultimately, specifically, does it pass the 30 second test? Is the language strong enough to convey a message of results/accomplishments (versus unsubstantiated actions)?

I am keeping my resume at a single page, so it is short and sweet. If you have a few minutes to spare, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

I'd be happy to look at it for you with a quick turn around, but the best advice I can give is to make sure you include accomplishments/results with your responsibilites. Did you meet schedules on time or early 90% of the time, did you come in under budget, did you create a process that provided specific efficiencies. List what you did/do but also how well you did/do it. You want your resume to show what you bring to the table.
