They say first impressions are critical because they can make or break an opportunity. While this is true for job interviews, it’s also applicable when creating your resume. At first glance, your resume should be impactful, especially because recruiters are said to spend an average of only seven seconds reviewing a candidate’s resume before deciding if he/she is suitable for the job.
For job applicants who are planning to pursue work abroad, TrueProfile.io, the platform that provides Filipino (plus any other nationality) healthcare professionals around the world with the tools they need to secure a lucrative career abroad, shares these valuable tips to make your resume stand out, and consequently, increase your chances of landing your dream job overseas:
