- Rob Cancilla is an executive recruiter and résumé writer who reviews hundreds of résumés each week.
- Job seekers should switch from an activity-based résumé to a results-driven résumé.
- Doing so shows hiring managers that you drove impact, results, or improvements in your former roles.
As an executive recruiter and résumé writer, I review hundreds of résumés a week. The number one tip that I give to almost everyone on how to improve their résumé is switching from an activity-based résumé to a results-driven résumé.
This simple but impactful principle can be applied to any résumé and at any level, from student résumé to executive résumé.
My clients consistently get more interviews when they switch to a results-driven résumé. I recently had a client get six interviews in one week from making this change to her résumé, and another client just secured her first full-time role after job searching for over a year.
