Career Connections: Recruiter vs. Resume Writer

Thursday, 19 January 2023 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Is a one-page résumé better than two pages? Are objective statements still relevant? Should I use one of those cool résumé templates I found on Etsy?

If your goal is to land a new job in 2023, then you’re in the right place. There is so much advice about what to do and not to do with your résumé, it can be overwhelming. Join us to find out what will bring your résumé to the top of the pile.

A résumé writer generally works for job candidates and recruiters work for the employer. The nature of these relationships sometimes lends its way to different approaches for a successful job search.

Resume writer Dawn Rasmussen and recruiter Elizabeth Balder will discuss and debate their different views on résumé strategies and answer audience questions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Common résumé mistakes to avoid
  • The ins and outs of applicant tracking software (aka “the résumé black hole”)
  • What to put on your résumé so it lands in the “yes” pile
