Top 9 Resume Trends 2019 [Infographic]

Six seconds. That's how long you have to impress the hiring manager, make it to the yes pile, land the job of your dreams and live happily ever after.

Glassdoor talked with top talent acquisition specialists to learn how to write a resume that passes the six-second test. Formatting, relevancy and proof of impact were key. Your resume should be easily scannable and tailored to the role you're applying for. Use numbers where you can, and don't be afraid to show-off personality or white space.

If you're starting from scratch or need fresh formatting ideas, find free resume builders online with websites like Canva or resume.com. Job Nexus let's you download free CV and resume templates straight to Word or Google Drive, and after you've picked your style, connect with recruiters in your industry for even faster entry.
