How to make your resume impactful enough to land your next dream job

Mandi Woodruff-Santos, Yahoo Finance contributor and Co-Host of the Brown Ambition Podcast joined Yahoo Finance Live on July 5 to discuss designing and making your resume stand out from the competition.

Video Transcript

MANDI WOODRUFF-SANTOS: I actually have a small group coaching program that I host. And I had a very special guest at a recent VIP session that I held with them, a recruiter from Meta. I'm not going to reveal their name, but they gave us a lot of tea.

And one of the key ingredients to that tea, especially for recruiters these days, is, how is this candidate not just telling you what they've done, but what is the impact of what they've done? This, I promise you, is how you're going to stand out on that high stack of applicants because despite the recession that we are potentially heading towards, job postings are still up 54% compared to the recession, right?

So there's still jobs out there. 4 million are still quitting their jobs, and there's still millions more jobs that are open. So although we are heading into recession territory, perhaps-- I'm not here to fearmonger, but perhaps we're heading there-- there's still a lot of signs that people are able to make really juicy, meaningful career moves and get new opportunities.
