Sorry if this title was misleading, I’m not hiring… anymore. I actually just filled a vacancy on my staff this last week. Almost 2 months ago I let go of my Elementary Coordinator and I had been looking to fill that full time position. During those 8 weeks, I received over 40 resumes. Interestingly enough, but the person I hired I actually found before I even posted for the position. In the past 18 months I have hired 3 full time people and 4 part time people. In this process I have learned a lot about resume’s, interviews and other job seeking tactics.

This next week I will share my thoughts on this topic. I am sure that I am biased by my own preferences, but I do have a few ideas that others should find helpful. At least I’ll tell you what made some resumes stand out where others went to the bottom of the stack.
