Top Ten Things Interviewers Want to See in a Resume

Want to know what interviewers are thinking when they're reviewing your resume? Here's what recruiting insiders told us they want to see reflected in a resume:

10. A well-rounded candidate

9. Something that makes you stand out from all the other Stanford/Harvard/Wharton graduates.

8. A balance of work (or academic)/life experiences-as if we bankers really know what that means!

7. Experience in my current client's industry and immediate availability.

6. You're assuming I actually get a chance to read resumes.

5. Someone who went to my alma mater. Not that I'm biased.

4. I'll know it when I see it.

3. An indication that the person is breathing.

2. Evidence that you'll be willing to spend every weekend in the office (without complaining).

1. A typo—so I can throw it out.
