Welcome to the Resume Pilots blog!

At Resume Pilots, we understand the challenges of writing an effective resume, preparing a convincing cover letter, or ensuring that your LinkedIn profile is fully optimized so that it appears when recruiters search for potential candidates for a role they are looking to fill.

As we address such concerns with our clients on a daily basis, we created a blog where you can pick up practical tips and advice - whether you are a seasoned executive or applying for your first position out of college.

In the coming days and weeks, you can expect to see thoughtfully curated and relevant content on topics including:

  • Which resume formats to use
  • Most common resume mistakes
  • Cover letter dos and don’ts
  • How to be strategic when looking for a new job
  • Leveraging your LinkedIn profile effectively
  • Being ATS and ‘auto-recruiting’ savvy

We look forward to sharing our expertise with you!
