The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

How to Write About Personal Things in Your Resume

with 2 comments

Don’t.  According to another great post from one of my favourite recruiter bloggers Mint Resumes.  This goes back to my post on tips for submitting resumes.

Basically, keep it simple!  Employers/recruiters, especially Korean hagwon directors, could care less about your coin collection or Dungeons and Dragons fetish.  Perhaps these candidates are trying to make their resume longer, but in reality it just makes it harder to read.  For me, I only look at 1) Education, 2) relevant work experience, 3) photo (well, we have to).

I’d much rather read a short, concise, ‘to-the-point’ resume than something that goes on and on for pages.  With regards to even relevant work experience and education, very short points will do the trick.  You don’t have to go into detail over every aspect.

  1. Keeping it simple and clear really pays – recruiters are too busy to have to dig through a resume to make a case for matching a candidate to a job. Thanks for the pick up!
