I really enjoyed spending an hour in my corner office at Hinge HQ (yep, a sweet little nook in my home 😉) chatting with Clemson University graduate students about modern resume writing principles for their upcoming job search.
⭐︎A few takeaways⭐︎
📌 Your resume is a marketing document, not an obituary. No need to include all your work history and details about your life. Include what is relevant to your job target.
📌 Ditch the old school objective statement at the top of your resume and instead, replace with a branded statement.
📌 Articulate your accomplishments to indicate your future value.
