…is that nobody reads them. Not in detail. Based on all my personal experience, that of the hundreds of job seekers I’ve helped, and interviews with many HR professionals, and having been a hiring manager myself, I can tell you that employers do not read your resume.

For the straight goods about what to put in that small space to generate immediate callbacks, stay tuned for the e-book Get Hired FAST! or send me a note.

Hi. I’m Jason Kanigan, consultative sales trainer, persuasive writer and jobsearch expert based in North Vancouver, BC, and this is my Web presence. It’s going to change often, so make sure you come back to check out the new and cool stuff.
I’m a guy who has worked in a number of different fields, from construction to engineering to factory management, and so I generally know what I’m looking at when I walk into a new situation.
