In the context.
Of the future.
Now I have to ask you Steve do you really think that employers care worried that you want to be as a future prospective employee or do they really just care about where they need you to be.
I think they cared deeply about it and if you think about it this way and I asked my clients to think about what's the problem or issue.
That the employer hasn't right now that would require even higher for this position.
So you can anticipate the well -- is they need then you can say here's what they've done in the past that we'll tell you -- that problem.
So it really does play to their best interest -- be more effective as an employer.
Okay and then you also -- use clear focused and behavioral language can you give us some examples.
Slowly I I think people ready to be alienated and -- is broad sweeping turns the best hitters if you imagine them having.
-- drop down menu under -- and immediate and easy at all these creators.
But they use things like organized.
And organized doesn't tell you -- enough so if you didn't talk about what it will look like.
When you're organizing.
And think about things how many how long.
So you can.
Do you writing to a point where is the reader you can actually see what that were -- Look -- contents and I can imagine that other words that you should not use our let's say affect did and perhaps create -- -- -- some of the banned words on resonates.

And it's bad becomes critical piece is the next job -- -- -- one standalone.
-- you think of you're not ready just about when you get the most in your past position but uranium.
What you're going to do most and so you may in fact in personal experiences you have -- pass to focus on things.
Most important to your next employer.

Fewer -- -- better.
How -- right.
How long does and it an employer look at that resonate for is -- six seconds.

You know -- six seconds actually looks like it is not very long and so what I tell people is.
Hold that -- out of harm's -- Look at -- you should be able to see fewer than twenty words is that you highlight ahead.
And you shouldn't make a decision whether or not you wanna talk about persons are usually in your your -- resonating.
Be very careful when you highlight where you put it remembering we read left to right top Obama.
And they hit an easy and accessible.
And so many people want -- show that they do have a lot of experience -- perhaps they use a smaller font and they get a lot in -- pack it all in and it's really beautiful resume.
But you got to remember that the person looking at it is looking at thousands of -- just like it and like you said giving -- six and seconds.
With their eyeballs so you might want -- a little simpler and much more jumpy on the case.

And so all points becoming more and the accessibility of white space yet.
Make it look like it's readable.
