When I graduated college, I had interviews at Google, Dropbox, Goldman Sachs, and others because of my resume, despite a 2.2 GPA. Now we've build a software to make the same resume for free. AMA!
Hey guys, I'll keep this short and sweet, and hopefully many of you find this useful. I'd like to spend some time to answer any questions you may have about your resume.
Google receives more than two million job applications each year. Based on the number of applicants compared to hires, landing a job at Google is more competitive than getting into Harvard. If you want to stand a chance at a company like Google, your resume must pass their hiring systems (Applicant Tracking System aka ATS).
That was the secret to my success. I am Jacob Jacquet, CEO at Rezi, and I've spent the last 4 years building a free resume software to recreate that exact resume.
Actually, making a perfect resume to pass an ATS is easy when you have relevant accomplishments and experiences to the job description you're applying to. Yet, it is difficult to explain these experiences and recognize your achievements.
Here was an actual bullet point from my resume:
"Organized and implemented Google Analytics data tracking campaigns to maximize the effectiveness of email remarking initiatives that were deployed using Salesforce's marketing cloud software."
Most job seekers would end the bullet at "Organized and implemented Google Analytics data tracking campaigns". However, this leaves out hirable information which gives the hiring manager a complete picture - the key to writing winning resume content is simply adding detail.
If you're struggling to add detail to your resume content - try to answer these questions.
- What did you do?
- Why did you do it?
- How did you do it?
**Edit: The resume linked to the wrong resume image - that has been fixed. There were many comments about poor grammar and spelling that were not in the original resume. This is an image of the wrong image for those curious - this image is an example of the resume created on the software based on the original resume (so ignore the content).
** Edit 2: Here is an example of a better resume than mine - https://www.rezi.io/blog/famous-resumes/kim-jong-un-resume/
