You submitted your resume and received a call back from your dream employer! Making a great first impression is critical in making it to the next stage of interviews, but can be especially challenging when it’s through phone or video. Let’s examine how you can make a great first impression over the phone or on video call.
As a former recruiter and professional resume reviewer, I’ve seen the gamut of how many different ways a resume can be written. The good, the bad, the wordy, the ambiguous, and the ineffective. With all the misinformation out there and with EVERYONE having an opinion on what makes a resume “POP”, it’s no wonder someone can be left scratching their head with their resume no better off then where they started.
During an interview you can assume you are being evaluated immediately on your appearance alone; this means those first 7 seconds in an interview are crucial. It’s just human nature.
