    While I wouldn’t necessarily post a public resume on Indeed even if there is a private posting option. It is still a great aggregating website that in essence pulls in from all other job advertisements on the web. You can go to industry career website for a more in depth look, but for a significant online curation of most of the job ads out there, I would suggest using Indeed and setting up weekly digest email alerts. This is not meant to have you sending out 300 resumes. But to identify where there might be a few advertised openings. If it’s a company you want to work for then contact us at for further tips on how to reach the decision makers at that specific company. You need to be able to cut ahead in front of the line a bit with an advertised job.

The Most Important Sections In Your Resume


The 6 Most Important Sections in Your Resume

For those of you out of work out there you may be wondering how best to frame or write your résumé to highlight the most important parts of your career.  If you’re a 40-something out of work in this job market you may be growing discouraged at the many resumes you send out and hear nothing back.  By reading this you’re on the right track to help yourself so chin up!

By educating yourself online with reliable market information and new digital tactics you increase your chances of being found online, and being called for the interview.  Besides the daily recruitment of candidates that is done online by recruiters, which will lead them to your LinkedIn profile or other bios you may have set up through the years; you must be ready with a compelling resume when you do get the call.  If it’s a professionally written resume that’s even better, as industry professionals stay abreast of best practices when it comes to recruiting, hiring, and selling yourself.  Whether you decide to use a professional resume writing agency like or you do it yourself with online resume builders or templates, you should follow the following rules to keep your audience’s attention.

There is recent research that has found that recruiters and hiring managers while scanning and skimming through tons of resumes follow a consistent visual path.  (see image) The same applies when they review your online profiles.  So sticking to an organized layout is critical. *“Because professionally written resumes have a clear visual hierarchy and present relevant information where recruiters expect it, these documents quickly guide recruiters to a yes/no decision.” *

The study also found that professionally written resumes scored better in terms of organization and visual hierarchy, as measured by ground breaking eye-tracking technology.  Professional resumes that had less data, and were evenly formatted were described as being much “clearer/cleaner to read.”

The study showed that recruiters spent almost 80% of their résumé review time on the following data points: (1) job titles, 2) companies you worked at, 3) start/end dates and 4) education (5) accomplishments quantified at top (6) keywords to match the open position.  Anything else is filler and likely has little impact on the first round of decision-making done at the recruiter level these days.

Therefore we recommend that while building your résumé you concentrate on an organized layout with a strong visual hierarchy; make sure online profiles are easy-to-read without too many distracting visuals.

Here’s a free resume builder for those that cannot afford the professional help.  Sometimes you have to quantify even that.  “Is it worth it to spend $300-600 on a professional resume writers fee if I get hired faster at my $45,000 a year salary?”  The longer you stay out of work the harder it is to find work and you are losing about $900 or so a week.  Just something else to consider.  Best of luck to all in your job searches!
