Celebrating 25 Years of Business

We sincerely thank those that have made a significant impact on our journey of 25 years.

AP Professionals is proud to be celebrating 25 years of business! We sincerely thank those that have made a significant impact on our journey of 25 years.

A word from our President:

AP Professionals was founded in Scottsdale, AZ in August of 1998 with our first placement being an SAP consultant on September 1st, 1998. It is incredible for me think back on those days and marvel that we have placed thousands of technical associates since our inception 25 years ago. Our growth has been organic, and we now have opened offices in Portland, OR; Las Vegas, NV; Seattle, WA and Baltimore, MD. I am most proud that we have lived up to our Mission Statement “Building Relationships That Last a Lifetime”. My thanks to all of you that believed in us and trusted us throughout our journey.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Resumes

Tips for what our experienced recruiters are looking for on a daily basis.

With so many resume tips out there, it can be hard to weed out the ones that actually are helpful for job seekers. We will be discussing things candidates should & shouldn’t do on their resumes according to our experienced recruiting team. With an average of 12 years of experience across our recruiting team, they are ready to spill all that they have learned! After looking over thousands of resumes over the years, they know exactly what stands out and what it is an automatic turn off. 

The 1st place tip that our recruiters could easily agree on was…

Personalize your resume for the job. Customizing your resume is key to getting an interview. This means curating your bullet points to include only qualifications and experiences that are most relevant to the position. Be sure to remove anything that does not directly relate to the job. Be sure that you will be able to speak to these items in an interview setting.

The tip that came in 2nd place was…

Keep it concise. Your resume should be no longer than 2 pages. The average person spends less than 2 minutes reading your resume so many won’t make it past the second page. To go hand-in-hand with this tip, use the space you have efficiently but keep it readable. If your sections are crammed together and not visually appealing, the recruiter or hiring manager won’t spend time deciphering it.

Finally, the 3rd place tip came to…

Include a summary paragraph at the top of your resume. You want to tell the reader exactly who you are, what you have to offer and why they should keep reading your resume. Hook their attention at the beginning! A summary paragraph is more beneficial than including an objective statement or a cover letter. This summary should highlight your most relevant qualifications and achievements.

Bonus Tip: If you want to make your resume stand out visually as well, highlight or bold the skills that the role requires. Highlighting/bolding your skills that are specifically relevant to the job, is a great way to catch the managers attention! Especially if they are going through a lot of submissions. You want yours to stand out!

If you want some extra help, we love this article (Linked: 43 Resume Tips) because it breaks down resume tips into specific areas that you might need assistance with. This will give you tips on how to show off your skills, how to best navigate employment gaps, how to show your personality and more.
