How to put your Retail experience on your resume

Maybe you're working in retail or have worked retail in the past and now you're applying for a new job in a different industry. I found this video really helpful in using impactful language to describe the experience, skills and knowledge you acquired while working your retail position. What other resume help would be helpful for you during your job search?

You only get 6 seconds with your resume

The average interviewer or recruiter spends 6 seconds to review each resume. Watch this video from jonathanwordsofwisdom about three ways to get past six seconds. #resume #jobsearch

Resume

The most common question, I receive is "I thought that resumes were not supposed to be over 1 page long". The short answer is although that thinking was the norm 20 years ago, it is no longer applicable to most candidates. Resume length is a function of number of accomplishments, education, training, leadership, technology skills and career length. In most cases recent college graduates should limit their resumes to 1 page for obvious reasons, but there are also situations where seasoned professionals also should have one page resumes because they have held the same job for the past 20 years. However for most early/mid/late career levels, a 2 page (max) resume is more appropriate. If someone has had multiple valuable roles over the past 10 years for example, it is important to build out that section in more detail to showcase all your accomplishments. Although it is important to be concise and targeted, it is nearly impossible to summarize ones contribution in 1 or 2 bullets. You will be selling yourself way short and a hiring manager will not be able to fully appreciate your career. In most cases 3-7 bullets make sense, but always make sure the content is quality, engaging and targeted!

I'm more interested in what cost he is trying to recoup. If the person has 40 yrs. of experience, they need very little training. Their work ethic is probably good as is their attendance and dependability. Also, I doubt they need much supervision.

That is discrimination! I'm 58, and I know after investing my own self in a time frame where I would feel this uncomfortable from their ethics...should WASTE NO MORE! GET OUT, Apply yourself where You Can FEEL THAT YOU ARE A TOOL, A POWERFUL RESOURCE GAINING more VALUE in the company and expanding another star for the HONOR ROLL (DEPENDABLE, RELIABLE & RESPECTED) PROMOTING PRIDE & STABILTY -IN GROWTH of dedication in each year.
