Resume Feedback from peers

Recently, I updated my resume for a class which required us to present one yesterday. It was for Prof. James Crane’s MGT Communication: Written class.

After a brief opening, James delved into the intricacies of ‘what hiring authorities want to see’ on resume. He had us break the class into smaller groups and exchange resumes among each other and provide some constructive feedback (not necessarily criticism).

This was not only fun and insightful, but also informative and eye-opening. I am an international student and had to give SAT. plus TOEFL & IELTS to qualify and secure my position as a student in the USA. Since I had this detail on the resume, my fellow members asked me about it. I was more than happy to explain. However, our cross-majors and different perspectives surfaced a lot of blindspots. Right from formatting to spelling errors, from verb usage to margins; we hit on almost all aspects.

Besides, it was really enjoyable for me to see people’s ideas and their experiences’ at various work settings. Sydney, one of classmates, had impressive background and activities to support her work in the area of Computer Sciences. Just a little formatting and she would be nailing it! I was genuinely excited to see and hear everyone’s stories.

Jeremy, another classmate, had a great format and impressive structure. However, he simply omitted putting some of his major extra curricular activities directly associated to his field of work. Adding that and utilizing impactful verbs would level him up and bring to where he needs to be.

I thoroughly enjoyed sharing and receiving suggestions and corrections. They helped me see what people (hirers’) would catch and point out the strengths as well as weaknesses. Hope you all run your resumes under more than just your own pair of eyes before hitting ‘submit’.
