But that’s just a one piece of the job search puzzle. Attracting the right attention from hiring manager in this highly technical and impersonal employment community also takes some careful strategizing.
Demonstrating too much career experience today, for example, can place you right out of contention for a job someone with your work background is well suited to manage. Don’t get me wrong… all your years of experience and accomplishments are Fantastic but the automated selection process, (Application Tracking System, ATS), employers use to filter qualified candidates from their online application pools will instantly give you an overqualified rating is you show more skills and qualifications than the one’s specifically required by employers on the job description; weird right!

What type of resume format are you using ? You might want to try a Functional resume to highlight your special skills, experience, and personal traits first. What you can do or what makes stand out among the other applicants is more important than where you where you accomplished those career landmarks.
The application tracking systems will pick up foreign locations and/or organizations outside the US and immediately disqualify you from consideration. There’s also a high probability that local hiring managers won’t recognize those Hotels and Spas and raise questions or concerns around your qualifications. You also might want to cut down the work history information to only show the last 10 years of work experience. Stephanie K post Tips on refreshing your resume and cover letter
