6 things I loved about the most impressive resume I’ve ever seen—based on 20 years of hiring

Thank you Gary Burnison.

Hopefully it helps you if stumbled across my blog and you find yourself like me today, looking to get hired.


I can’t live up to all of this, though it’s good enough advice I remembered and was able to dig it up, and will apply what I can.

I most loved the bit about the convicted felon, wonderful to hear of someone willing to be honest, admit their past mistakes, and most importantly pick themselves up and make it clear they’re willing and able to get hired.

For me, that was I think a little simpler, like quitting the best job I’d ever had with MongoDB with no plan after the 2018 Robocup World Championship, having seen the (metaphorical) handwriting on the wall as per Daniel 5:5 and praise God having the grace to hire and train my replacement.

Where to?

God knows, I’m eager to find out!
