14 seconds reading time

How long will an employer read my resume? The employer will read your resume for 14 seconds and at that point will decide to continue reading or throw it away.  If she or he goes past the 14th second, and the material continues to be interesting, the employer will read a 100 page biography.  If s/he decides no at the 14th second, the employer will not bother even to read a 2 page resume!  It is not about length, it is about quality and readability, and value to the employer.  We'll show you how.

Most People Have the Wrong Resume

95% of available jobs are hidden – not advertised anywhere. Typical resumes are designed for ads in newspapers and public postings – which only represents 5% of available jobs. So 95% of job hunters are going around with the wrong resume! No wonder they are so unhappy! No wonder they’re not rich and successful! We have the RIGHT ONE !!!!!

If you get your reader to go beyond the 14th second, s/he will stay with you for pages! 

The key in resume presentation is the look and the feel of the first page encourage the reader to go further than 14 seconds.  This is done with color, feel of the paper, graphic layout, pictures.  The 4Minutes CV resume has a unique format that has been copied and adapted by thousands of professionals in the past 30 years. It is designed to be an easy-to-read list thus avoiding dragging readers into writing style. It uses two to three colors: with a 40% additional 'pick up' chance for each color. It uses photos to announce who your are. It uses high quality materials to communicate your sense of value - when the target person holds the CV-Resume.
