What Recruiters and Hiring Managers Want in a Resume
Recruiters want to fill a job opening as quickly
as possible and get on to the next assignment.
Hiring managers similarly want to hire someone as
quickly as possible and get back to their work. Your
resume is the tool that gets you in the door.
What recruiters and hiring managers despise is an
overabundance of self-praising descriptors: superior,
excellent, team player, detail-oriented, thought leader,
self-motivated, hard worker, and the like.
When recruiters see a resume filled with adjectives
unsupported by skills and achievements, they read
a phrase like, "Excellent Accounts Receivable skills;
detail-oriented" and mutter, "I'll be the judge of that!"
Understand Why Jobs Exist
What recruiters and hiring managers want to see
are resumes that show relevant skills and how you
applied them on the job. How do you do that?
No job gets added to the payroll unless it helps
the employer make money, save money, or increase
productivity. This holds true for all jobs, at all levels
and in all professions.
Consequently, jobs exist to identify, anticipate,
prevent, and solve the problems that prevent the
company from making money, saving money, or
Put another way, every job exists to prevent and
solve problems within its area of expertise and thereby
contribute to company profitability.
Consider the deliverables of an Accounts Receiva-
ble (A/R) job - perhaps boring, until you realize that
unless the people in Accounts Receivable do their job,
the company won't be able to pay its bills and your
paycheck will bounce. Thought about this way, A/R
jobs are not about tabulating the income derived from
trouble-free paying customers, they are focused on
actively bringing in revenue.
This means that an A/R candidate is hired be-
cause she knows the professional landscape of the
job well enough to identify, anticipate, prevent, and
solve problems by bringing in the receivables, and
in the process effectively dealing with late-paying
customers, and so contributing to profitability.
Why Skills and Achievements Rule
Regardless of profession or title, employers want to
see a resume with skills applied to the identification,
anticipation, prevention, and solution of the typical
problems that crop up every day of the week in that
job - and they want to see the results of these efforts.
So, in a resume, our A/R specialist will talk about
skills and the results of their application:
4 years' A/R experience: Excel, Quickbooks,
• Reduced 30 day+ payables by 20%
• Reduced 45 day+ payables by 18%
In 19 words, we know the candidate has experience,
understands the job's deliverables, has the tools to do
the job, and can point to the results (achievements)
of their application. Much more powerful than, "Ex-
cellent Accounts Receivable skills; detail-oriented"!
Sell to the Customer's Needs
The first lesson learned in our professional lives
is: The customer is always right. The second lesson
is: Find out what the customer wants and sell it to
them. Combined, these lessons tell you that you need
a template for the story your resume must tell.
Here's what you do: Collect a half dozen job postings
and pull them apart to find the common experience
requirements and skills employers seek when hiring
someone like you. This is called Target Job Decon-
structionTM (TJDTM). Once you know what potential
employers want, you can determine skills and accom-
plishments you need to show yourself in the best light.
How to Identify Your Achievements
Employers look to what you have achieved in your
work as an indication of what you are likely to achieve.
It might help you recall relevant skills and contribu-
tions using CAR:
• C = Challenge (Think of a challenge
you faced or problem you had to re-
• A = Action (What actions did you
• R = Results (What was the result of
these actions? What was the value
to your employer?)
You can apply CAR to the following ques-
tions. When you think about results, try to
think in terms of percentages and amounts:
• What gives you pride in your work?
• How does this relate to the success
of your job?
• Did you increase sales, save money,
or otherwise increase productivity?
• Did you meet an impossible dead-
line through extra effort? What was
the benefit to your company?
• Did you conceive, design or (help)
launch a new product or program?
• Did you assume new responsibili-
ties that weren't part of your job?
• Have you completed any special
• Did you introduce any new or more
effective systems, processes, or
techniques for increasing produc-
Once you know what
want, you can determine skills
and accomplishments you need to
show yourself in the best light."
Tying It All Together
Recruiters and hiring managers' needs are
simple - they want to fill a job opening as
quickly as possible with someone who will
do the job well. A resume that replaces emp-
ty adjectives with skills and achievements
will get you interviews and immediately set
your candidacy apart.
