Formatting Your Resume to Be Read!

Chronological vs. Functional.  Objective vs. Summary Statement.  Paragraphs vs. Bullets.  Although debates will always rage on regarding the ideal resume format, I can tell you what I like to see (and my clients).  Fellow recruiter Peggy McKee and I discuss these topics in a video recently produced by her recruiting firm.  If you have your own view on these topics, feel free to share them in the comment section for this post.
