Jeff at Repatriate posted an entry reflecting on his experience reviewing resumes and put together some practical advice for those people looking to get an interview. Here's an example of one complaint.
This is another one of my pet peeves. So I'm reading a resume' - "hmm, looks good so far, experience mhmm, college grad, mhmm, unexplained six-year gap in work history from 1997 to NOW." Don't make me have to guess which state prison or mental institution you were just released from to make the puzzle complete. Don't worry, we have a BIG shredder.
Anyone who has had to wade through stacks of resumes knows what a tedious and frustrating task it can be. Jeff has a colorful way of explaining some of the problems he sees. Read the rest here.
