    The Position You Want, for the Salary You Want

 

 

 

One of the major mistakes made by serious job hunters is the whole meaning of the word 'Resume.' The word ‘Resume’ means summary. Summaries will not get you the edge you deserve to get the job you want. You physically do not have enough room to explain your story. Resumes, in their present format, are one to three pages.

When you work from 9 am to 5 pm, you spend a total of 2,000 hours per year working. If you stay with a company for 2 years, that's 4,000 hours. Your boss might want more than a 2-page summary about what you did for the last 5, 10, 15...years. 4Minutes CVs give the full story in addition to providing you with a powerful short resume.
