Resume Tips

Design Purpose

A resume is a self-marketing tool, designed with the goal of obtaining a job interview. Resume information is targeted succinctly to a career field and addresses the needs of a specific employer. Your resume should market your relevant skills, knowledge, and accomplishments.

Preparation

It will be difficult to begin the process of writing your resume unless you identify the career field and types of employers that will be the focus of your job search. When you know how you will use the resume, then you will be able to write an effective, targeted resume that gets results. You will likely spend a considerable amount of time developing your resume, choosing the right words and phrases to describe your marketable skills and experiences. It is not uncommon to write several revisions before arriving at the final version.

One-page resumes are preferred for most entry-level positions. Two-page resumes are acceptable if the information on both pages demonstrates the skills and/or experience relevant to your profession. Resumes should highlight skills and accomplishments that meet employer qualifications, excluding irrelevant information and experiences. Well-designed resumes will be visually appealing and free from any spelling, typographical, punctuation, or grammatical errors. All resumes should be written concisely in an organized format that presents the most important information first. You can check the Resume Checklist for the most important points.

Employers who read individual resumes spend very little time on each resume-in most cases, only twenty to thirty seconds. Many large restaurant and hospitality employers are now using optical scanning machines and various software programs to assist them with this initial review.

Since 2014 I have had the pleasure of working with Rob Dallaire C.P.C., Southern California Market Partner with Gecko Hospitality. At the time our collaboration began, Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop maintained 4 existing establishments in the Los Angeles and Orange County Markets. With expansive growth on the horizon, Greenleaf partnered with Rob to recruit key candidates to build our restaurant leadership team. Over the years, Rob has placed General Managers, Managers, and Chefs within the Greenleaf Organization, helping to support our growth to 9 locations. Each time we were presented with talented candidates who matched our specific criteria and needs. Rob's personalized services seek to know and understand your business to ensure that all candidates presented will be a true fit within the organization. He has a natural ability to identify and attract high caliber candidates. Paired with Rob's outgoing, professional, and reliable traits, we could not ask for more qualified individual to partner with for our recruitment needs. Rob Dallaire is an integral part for any company looking to source the best talent for their hospitality needs.
