The RezScore Playlist: 4 Resume Tips from A Few Of Our Favorite Songs

It’s a given that everyone at RezScore is pretty hip to the resume game. After all, who else would give job seekers a resume grader, skills explorer, and this amazing blog?


However, did you know that we’re also big music fans too? From time to time, you can catch RezScore team members singing in the car, boogying in the kitchen, and getting down with our bad selves on the dance floor.

So, in an effort to combine our love of resume and music, we bring to you the RezScore playlist (a.k.a. That’s What I Call Resu-Jams). Check out these four hits that also offer some interesting (albeit a stretch) resume advice:

Dog Days Are Over
Florence + The Machine

Maybe you’ve been unemployed for a long time, maybe you just got fired, or maybe you simply haven’t had any luck in your career. The most important thing you can do for your job search is to get past the mess and focus on the future, whatever that might be.

Your poker face is an incredibly useful tool throughout your job search. In your cover letter, resume, and interview, you need to strike the right chord with the potential employer. You need to show them exactly what kind of employee you will be, free of nerves and/or desperation. We don’t want you to act fake, rather, embrace a professional attitude.

If you were an employer, what sounds more attractive? Someone who “sold a lot of units” at their last job or someone who “increased sales by 15% in a four-month period”?

Numbers are a valuable and often ignored part of your job search. From your application to your interview, use numbers to show off accomplishments and experience to potential employers.

Think about your resume. If it feels like just another piece of paper, you need to do some work. Your resume is one of the most vital parts of your job search, so it needs to be strong and do some heavy-lifting, so to speak. Tailor your resume and pick powerful language to strengthen your resume.
