Recruiter In Korea

The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

10 phrases you should ban from your resume

with 2 comments

I gave tips on writing resumes for Korean employers before here and here.  I found this interesting article on Yahoo regarding resumes that should extend my previous advice.

If a Korean director of an English academy reads a resume, they won’t give a rat’s ass about anything else besides your education and experience.  For a native-speaking recruiter like myself, I could honestly care less about the same.  Don’t add general cliches to your resume just for the sake of doing so or even worse, to make it longer.  As we recruiters are dealing in mass quantity, the last thing  we want to do with out days is read a novel (the same one over and over again).

Everything should be to the point but if there are significant aspects of your life that you feel are worthy for an employer, keep it short and to the point.  Most importantly, PROVE IT!

  1. Great post.

    I take it you are a recruiter living in Korea. Do you have a website, other than this blog?

    Great blog though, anyway.
