Avoid being a restaurant without a menu (don’t send a resume)

Imagine there’s a new restaurant in town.

You’re checking out their website, but it’s a little empty. In fact, it only has one page, featuring only this one line:

“We’re certified by the Food Safety Administration”.

That’s it.

No menu
No photos
No reviews
Nothing

Don’t be boring. Don’t send a resume

Would you go eat at that restaurant?

Unlikely.

Now consider that this is exactly what it’s like when you’re applying for a job when you send a resume!

After all, your resume is just a list of degrees, and certifications. There’s no product, no value proposition, no social proof, nothing.

How is a company supposed to know you’re going to be valuable?

They can’t—unless you show something better.

So go do that.

(Don’t send a resume).

Start the Job Hunt Crash Course

Looking to take action? Remember, resumes have a response rate under 1%.

Video pitches have a response rate over 80%.

Stop sending paper resumes. Start sending video pitches.

To learn the mindset and tools of this revolutionary approach, you can take the Job Hunt Crash Course.

We’ll take you step-by-step from zero to hired.

For months I was struggling to fit my non-traditional experiences into a resume and it simply didn’t work. With Crash, I was able to go from pitch to interview to offer within 24 hours. It felt like magic.
