A resume that is directed to a recruiter will likely get better results if it is shorter and more specific than a more detailed resume, which is designed to appeal to an individual employer. A recruiter will scan a resume to determine if there’s a match with a position that he has available. Your resume should not exceed two pages.
The basic layout to follow is:
Heading: Name, address, phone, (fax and email where available)
Objective: Essentially, what you want to do. If you are interested in a rather unusual or unique position, say it. If not, be general, but clear. If you have a geographic preference, state that here.
Job History: Only include up to the last 6 positions you held, beginning with the most recent. Provide company names, positions held, short description of job performed and key business accomplishments. Include the dates employed (use months and years only, never days) and try not to leave any open time periods.
Skills/training: Use only where appropriate to the desired position or cite skills/experience/training a future employer would value.
