While researching a recent story on long-term IT careers, we talked to a guy who had been suddenly laid off, after decades of success at several large tech companies.
When he shared his resume with us, it looked like it came from another era.
We wondered, what should he be doing differently?
So we contacted Volen Vulkov, co-founder of EnhanceCV, a startup that automatically analyses your resume mistakes and helps you redesign a new one. (These are the folks that turned Mark Zuckerberg’s life into a cool resume.)
This time, we wanted them to take someone’s actual resume, modernize it, and offer pointers on how anyone could do the same. And they went all out.
The resumes below are real, although the person’s name, companies’ names, and some details have been changed to protect his identity.
