Anatomy of a Winning Resume

Anatomy of a Winning Resume

Searching for jobs is a daunting task for many, so it’s imperative your resume is in tip-top shape.

With 25% of human-resources managers receiving 50 resumes per job listing, competition is fierce, according to an infographic developed by NowSourcing, an Internet-marketing services firm.

Called “The Anatomy of a Great Resume,” it dissects the components of a first-class CV. The infographic encourages job-seekers to concisely summarize work experience, emphasize accomplishments and include key words such as “problem solving,” “leadership” and team building.” On the other hand, the infographic counsels against making spelling and grammatical errors.

Indeed, it says 77% of HR managers search for candidates with relevant experience, while 48% want information on specific accomplishments, and 41% look to see whether a resume is customized to an available position.

Bo Obama has certainly received his share of media coverage, but he's actually just the latest in a long line of critters who’ve called the White House home. While 68 percent of our presidents have owned dogs, and 20 percent of them have had cats, other animals have also lived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue — like canaries, goats, horses and even cows. Exotic animals have also played a part in White House history, including President Theodore Roosevelt’s menagerie of lions, zebras and bears. President James Buchanan was gifted a herd of elephants from the King of Siam, but the pachyderms never roamed the South Lawn. There are, however, more than 70,000 bees currently taking up residence in a hive on the storied lawn. Source: Presidents' Pets: An Infographic History Of Animals In The White H ouse
