11 Surprising Resume Secrets of a Google Recruiter (Google Reviews 50,000 Resumes a Week)

Does your résumé have what it takes to stand out?

If you’re applying for a competitive job or position, you know the highly sought-after employer you have your eyes on is not going to accept just anyone. Hiring managers want the best of the best, and that means all application materials you submit should be free of errors and perfectly crafted. That’s a given.

But what else can you do to make your résumé stand out in a good way?

In a Google video, recruiter Rebecca and software engineer Kendall have all the secrets. And since Google fields more than 50,000 applicants a week, I suspect they know what they’re talking about.

Here are 11 résumé secrets from these two Google hiring experts.

1. Be concise and don’t be afraid to brag. Be precise in the description of your job experience, but don’t be shy when it comes to describing the selective process you went through in order to be selected for a role or project.

2. Keep your résumé to just one or two pages. Include relevant information only, and edit, edit, edit.

3. Use action-oriented language. Use verbs such as “negotiated,” “developed,” “managed,” “led,” and so forth.

4. Write the résumé for the job description. Read the job description and study how it’s written. Then, write the résumé specifically for that job description–tailoring it to the duties and requirements.

5. Use data and examples. You should be able to highlight your accomplishments in current and past positions with data and examples that support them.

6. Make pertinent information quick and easy to find. Avoid the fluff–get right to the good stuff.
