Last summer I organized a résumé marathon where I reviewed 587 résumés in 49 hours to help people in my network who were negatively impacted by the pandemic. The idea came to my mind when I asked myself what I could do as an individual to support my followers on LinkedIn and TikTok.
I’ve personally created more than 480 versions of my own résumé for tech and management consulting companies. I learned many lessons and was able to secure offers from Google, KPMG, and Boston Consulting Group.
For this second marathon, I reviewed 800 résumés and it took me two weeks (65 hours) to finish going through every single one.
