Get Feedback on Your Resume

Get Feedback on Your Resume

By Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter

LinkedIn wrote, “Another way to evaluate your resume writing is to get feedback from others who can offer you a different perspective and insight. You can ask for feedback from friends, family, mentors, colleagues, or professionals who work in your field or industry. You can also use online platforms, such as Reddit, LinkedIn, or CareerVillage, where you can post your resume and get feedback from strangers, experts, or recruiters. When you ask for feedback, be specific about what you want to know and improve. For example, you can ask about your resume layout, wording, length, relevance, or impact. You should also be open-minded and respectful of the feedback you receive, and use it to refine your resume writing.”

Putting Your Resume Together

I commented, “My opinion is that you should limit your use of people to those who understand what it is you do in order to avoid nonsense suggestions that won’t result in more interviews but “dumbing down” your resume. This limits the field to knowledgeable friends and family, former colleagues (I’ve known too many instances of current colleagues sabotaging someone to get their job), professionals in your field, recruiters, resume writers, and career coaches who will critique it, even if you have to pay for the service.”
