Ok guys. I seem to be having a difficult time having recruiters to take my resume seriously. Are there any recruiter in this forum who could give me some tips? I know I have good experience but not getting any bites.

yeah either what m1 said, or having it professionally rewritten


With the caveat that I now work at Microsoft, I found the Resume Assistant tool in Microsoft Word to be very helpful while I was recruiting. You can search for the role you are interested in and it will give examples of key skills and example resume bullets from LinkedIn. This was very helpful in helping me tailor my resume when I was shifting from data analytics to product marketing.

More info below:


Optimize as suggested above, but referrals are better than the best resume. Ask former classmates and coworkers if their current employer has any openings that you might be a good fit for. Have informal chats with the hiring manager whenever possible.


I had good results with Your Next Jump, if you're looking for a resume editing service.


Have you thought about using one of those optimizer services online? Some of them look pretty solid and if it can land your more interviews, it'll be worth the expense.

Hi all,
Actually I applied to CGI twice with in the same month.
In the first try, I was rejected in the second round. And in the next try I was interviewed and confused whether they will take me into consideration as my pan card is already given as a proof to them in first try.
Is there cool off period for CGI?
Your answers are greatly appreciated.


I’m currently an AE and was offered a promotion to sales manager. I’ve been waiting for this next step but the offer only provides a 5% raise over what I currently make. We had several manger seats open and I know external people we hired received an offer atleast 20-30% more than I did.
I’m currently trying to negotiate but there doesn’t seem like there’s willingness to do so from our hiring team. Should I decline? Should I leave? Should I accept and start looking elsewhere?


If there is a case that we have to quarantine again. Do you all think it is possible for store associates to work remotely? If so, what are some ways this could work? I fear another pandemic or outbreak and so many people being out of work again. I can't even fathom those that had jobs in retail that had little to no choice to not be remote.

Hello, anyone who worked or who's working at hashicorp in sales/presales. How is it ?

You know what amazes me...so many of us in tech demonize Amazon and yet...all of us will continue to order from Amazon because convenience is not cheap. But Amazon has figured out a way (albeit evil) to do that. So we publically criticize the company while privately doing all of our Xmas, birthdays, weddings, housewarming, etc., shopping on Amazon. I'm speaking to myself but is anyone else conflicted...


And update to a previous post.
I got some advice and I worked on them and I would like to know if I got it right this time.
