Did you know the average manager spends less than 1 minute reviewing your resume? What can you do to get your resume to stand out from the crowd? This week’s podcast is with Dave Drummond an award-winning Canadian book designer. Dave helps his authors sell more books through his creative designs. In our conversation he shares some simple ideas that you and I can use to strengthen our professional packaging, I can contribute the idea of interviewing a book designer by a question that my daughter asked recently “Dad, which book do you think is a better book?” She was asking the age old question, can you judge a book by it’s cover? In this particular case, the book with poorly designed cover was the better book. Rightly or wrongly, we judge a book by it’s cover, that is why publishers hire Dave. Dave shared “Great covers are all about getting noticed” Packaging matters, we all have a story to tell employers. From your resume to linkedin, twitter and facebook, employers do judge you by your cover. This week, take time to update your resume, you never know when opportunity will knock!
