A: I have done a number of searches for HR directors and I’ve been surprised at how many of them neglected specifics on their resumes. Terms such as “staffing” or “recruiting” were not included, so I had no idea what experience they had in this area. On the other hand, I have also experienced some very technical resumes, listing every project they’ve worked on, but they didn’t say what their positions were. Were they the managers? Do they have any management experience? Those are the kinds of questions a recruiter asks when reading a resume for a managerial position.
