Michigan Job Seekers Use 10-Word Resume To Get Hired

Detroit, Michigan - All job seekers struggle with writing a winning resume to grab the attention of hiring employers. What to say? What not to say? What is relevant information about your jobs? It is never easy, especially when all career coaching experts have a different viewpoint on hiring, and it is just a confusing mess of information to regular people just trying to get hired. has relaunched a solution to help bridge the hiring gap between employers and job seekers. If the phrase “actions speak louder than words” is true, Michigan job seekers should use ten powerful words to highlight their skills and experience. 

There are thousands of high-paying jobs in Michigan in November 2021; with excellent incentives, benefits, and perks for suitable candidates, many employers will accept inexperienced candidates if they are willing to be trained. Human resource professionals forage through dozens of faceless resumes with the same ole jargon as a mundane task. Understandably, both sides are exhausted by the pandemic job market; candidates have lost their drive to get hired, and no-show interview appointments ruin the recruiters' optimism. 

I have read thousands of resumes; the average is not written well, the format does not compliment their experience, grammar and punctuation are a big issue, and under-explained job descriptions plague most resumes. I would be more than happy to accept a 10-WORD RESUME from a potential candidate; assuming you used ten perfectly selected words to explain your skills and experience; that might save me two minutes of browsing the wrong resumes. Nothing is more frustrating to a recruiter than receiving a resume for a General Labor position only to read the entire resume to discover the candidate is a mechanical engineer – well, I will just be donuts. – said CJ Eason,, Community Outreach Director

What Is a 10-WORD Resume?

The ten-word resume is a solid introduction to hiring employers. The purpose is to use ten powerful words and spark attention about your Career Field, Experience, and Skills - tell hiring employers WHO you are, WHAT you can do, WHY you are qualified. The 10-WORD Resume can be included in an e-mail subject heading, social media introduction with recruiters, or the header of a cover letter to ensure the candidate is not overlooked. Unfortunately, it takes recruiters 60-seconds to toss a resume in the trash that does not match the experience and skills of the desired position. Potential candidates should take every opportunity to tell hiring employers just who they are fast; before they are excluded. If the job description asks for years of experience, education, or special skills, announce this upfront and set yourself apart from other candidates. That is how you get a job interview in 2021.
