Resume Critique Checklist

Resume Critique Checklist

By Kim Isaacs | Monster Contributing Writer

Resumes normally get less than a 15-second glance at the first screening. If someone has asked you to review his resume and you want to help him ensure it gets read – or want to know if your own is up to par – be sure you can answer yes to the following questions:







First Impression

Does the resume look original and not based on a template?

Is the resume inviting to read, with clear sections and ample white space?

Does the design look professional rather than like a simple typing job?

Is a qualifications summary included so the reader immediately knows the applicant’s value proposition?

Is the length and overall appearance of the resume appropriate given the career level and objective?
