Jeff Gordon is my guest for this episode. He shares with you the most common mistakes he continually sees on resumes. Before you hit delete and go to another show I encourage you to take a few minutes to listen to this episode. The information that Jeff shares is insider information. Jeff was a corporate recruiter for Experian for four years and has been involved in over 1000 job interviews. He is currently the owner of Interactive99 where he continues to review resumes and he also maintains a career blog. Jeff tells you exactly what hiring managers want to see and where they are focusing their attention. This is different than what is taught at various resume writing classes.
