Resume advice

Posted

In need of some advice on whether to add description under my job title or simply just list my job title on my resume. What do you all think? I have a skills portion on my resume that lists general skills such as excellent communicator, etc. I thought I read somewhere that employers don't want a job description. Thoughts?

IMO and from what I've seen, I think you definitely should put a brief description for each job title listing what you did in that role. Make it short and get to the point right away (no fluff) but I think it's necessary. Recruiters will just skim over your resume since they are reading so many, but if something catches their eye then they can read the description and ask more about it in the interview.
