How long does it take you to make a resume?
I know this guy, and we had the task of hiring someone. Anyway, as the process went on, we got to talking about resumes. I made a comment about how long could it take to make a resume. This man, who is an eye doctor, said it would take him about three evenings to make one. I was stunned silent, really. He asked me how long I would take, and said about 10 minutes or so. Clearly out of the range of error there.
Also, was reading this book called Pounding the Pavement, which was very good. Was about this gal who was looking for a job despite she had one. In the book, it showed her resume three or four times. One part in the book, she took a whole evening, worked late into the night, and made alterations to her resume. Actually, she made one change, just a minor little thing that it would seem nobody would even notice. Even in the context of the book, she noted that the change was so small it may have went unnoticed and seemed proud of that accomplishment. That 6 hour accomplishment.
So the question goes, just how long could it possibly take? And if it takes more than a half an hour, please explain how? This is so baffling you can’t imagine.
