Many of our clients have been working for more than three years and are in Manager-level or Director-level positions. Their résumé ends up in a “stack” of résumés, so the reader likely spends 8 – 10 seconds in the initial review of the résumé. The key here is to define your objective simply, but not too narrowly. (We don’t want to eliminate the positions for which you may also qualify.) In addition we use buzzwords to catch the reader’s attention in 10 seconds, so the reader will spend 3-5 minutes reading your résumé.
