The Authentic Resume: How to tell a good story that resonates with recruiters and hiring managers. 50+ tips to make your resume look genuine and interesting.


A recent study found that on average, recruiters spend 6 seconds on a resume. There's so many 'fluffy' resumes out there that after a point, all resumes look the same. So no matter how hard you try to 'impress' them, your probability of success is very low.

Most of the conventional resume 'advice' doesn't apply anymore. You can't win by doing the same thing that most people do, i.e look for 'good resume examples' and adopting them to your needs. Let's face it: less than 3% of job applicants are qualified. With more than 100 equally, if not better, qualified applicants for a given job, how do you stand out?

You stand out by telling a good story. A story that is genuine, passionate, and resonates with recruiters and hiring managers. The most effective way to beat the competition is to out-do them by doing something different: by being genuine, passionate, and authentic.

That's what this book is about. It gives you insights into how recruiters and hiring managers think, what really matters, and how to craft a unique and compelling story that resonates. It provides strategies and tactics to understand their language and tune your resume accordingly. It has more than 50 tactical ideas to make every section of your resume matter. Even if you are 'unqualified' for a job, this book shows you how you can change their mind with a compelling story that shows passion and potential.

Recruiting is a very subjective process, and nothing is set in stone. The reason why most people aren't successful is because they use the same 'selling' approaches that never worked. You can grab a recruiter's attention. You can get any job you want. You need to be creative and show them what they want to see. This book helps you do that.
