If there's one thing clear in the field of career advice, it's the plethora of recommendations and “tips" on how to craft an effective resume. And the complexity of what I'll label “resume wisdom" has escalated in recent years from the impact of technology and the emergence of some new, and very different, resume formats. Related: Hiring Problem: The Lack Of Specificity In The Hiring Process On the technology side, job seekers confront the need to make their resumes “search friendly" or directly entering a “resume" to a job site. Different formats, from “visual resumes" to “career letters," offer what certainly appear to be dramatically different presentations. Fortunately, there is fairly strong agreement on some aspects of resume content. A quick scan of “resume tips" shows strong support for “accomplishments" versus “duties." Yet, there are still 100's if not 1000's of resumes that are produced by job seekers daily that contain boring lists of duties, often taken from equally boring organizational job descriptions. Perhaps the results of an experiment involving variations on resume content can help job seekers see more clearly on at least one of the key elements.
