How to Prepare a Good Resume by Jeff Moore


Introduction:This Week  Jeff Moore, a lead engineering recruiter for Google shares  tips for preparing a good resume.

The fall college recruiting season is upon us…..yikes, what happened to the summer??? Soon your campus will be visited by armies of recruiters looking for the next great employee to join their team. Will you be ready? Are you that person? Well, you might be…but you need to have a stand-out resume to get the conversation started. Before we begin, one thing to remember: A good resume will not get you a job. A good resume will get you the interview and the rest is up to you. With that in mind, here are a few tried and true tips for drafting an awesome resume.

Show off your strengths – Makes sense, right? You want your resume to show off what makes you special and give recruiters a reason to interview you. The big things on your resume should make employers say, “wow!” It doesn’t really matter if it’s your education, internships or special awards, just make sure to show off your skills/experience and try to impress because (cliché alert!) you never get a second chance to make a first impression.

The devil is in the details – A detailed resume is a good resume. The more info you share, the more a recruiter or hiring manager can look at your accomplishments and determine if you are a good fit for their team. For example, which one of these candidates would you want to talk to?

Candidate A – Wrote several applications to improve efficiency within the finance group.

Candidate B – Used Java and PHP to write financial accounting application that saved the company over 25 hours a week of productivity resulting in over $100K in savings.

Remember, your resume is your message to the hiring team—tell them as much as you can so they can make the most informed decision.

Keep it short – Huh? Didn’t he just say, “tell them as much as you can”? I did, but that doesn’t mean you should write a 15 page resume. What you want is a clear, concise resume that accurately describes your accomplishments. Assuming you are a new college grad, you probably want to stick to one page. However, if you have significant accomplishments (publications, open source contributions, startups, awards, etc.) it is acceptable to go on to a second page. Lots of career services folks will tell you “one page only.” I don’t subscribe to that, as long as the content of your resume is relevant.

Spelling and grammar – I don’t even need to mention this…you get it right? We have spell check for a reason. You’d be shocked at how many resumes I see with spelling errors. Grammar and spelling mistakes look sloppy. Don’t be careless, and don’t depend on spell check. Proof read your resume and have others proof it as well.

Know your target – Make sure your resume is targeted to the right audience. I’d recommend you add an “Objective” at the top of your resume (below your name!) that clearly states what your want to accomplish. Think of the objective as your “elevator pitch”, a concise statement to convince the hiring manager or recruiter that you are worth an initial conversation. Your objective and the meat of your resume should portray someone who is a fit for the job and company. For example, if you want a job at a specific company write an objective like this:

Objective – To obtain a fast-paced and exciting role within the Google Staffing team.

As opposed to this….

Objective – To get a job at Google.

Again, this stuff isn’t rocket science, you just have to be thoughtful and thorough to make sure you sound like someone worth interviewing.

Ok, good luck out there! Get those resumes polished and start talking to people. A great job is out there for you and it all starts with that great resume!

How to talk with recruiters


Introduction: Jeff Moore,a lead engineering recruiter for Google,  gives  his advice on speaking with recruiters just like him Jeff has over 10 years of recruiting experience in the high tech and software industries and is currently responsible for recruiting world class engineers to join Google’s offices in Atlanta, Cambridge, Chicago, Montreal, Pittsburgh, Waterloo and Washington DC.

Recruiters tend to be pretty unique folks. We’re generally outgoing and can usually have a conversation with anyone about most anything. That being said, talking to recruiters is a bit of an art form. Let me explain a few thoughts on how best to work with a recruiter.

Do’s – Tell us what you are looking for in a job. Being confident and assertive in your goals is like music to our ears and helps us figure out if we have a role for you.

Don’t – Say things like “I’m not sure,” “I’m up for anything,” “I don’t care what I do.” These phrases are a turn-off for recruiters. We want to hire you, tell me why we should!

Do ‘s– Show some personality and sense of humor. Depending on the day, that friendly recruiter you’re talking to may have spoken with several hundred people by the time you get to them. We appreciate a good joke or funny personal story, and it helps make an impression.

Don’t – Be unprofessional. Recruiters talk to people for a living, it’s our job. No matter how friendly the tone, remember the conversation is strictly professional. Never ask a recruiter out on a date or put them in an uncomfortable situation. Recruiters want to see if you’re a fit for their organization and that’s it. All business.

Dos– Ask questions. Recruiters don’t expect you to know everything there is to know about our organizations. We are more than happy to answer questions and help you learn about the company. I love it when a candidate asks me, “What do you like best at Google?” and then follows up with, “and what do you like least?” Recruiters like thoughtful and interesting discussions. Engage us.

Don’t – Make assumptions about what you think we’ll want to hear. Nothing will drive a recruiter crazy faster than when someone drops a bunch of cliché, elevator pitch lingo into a conversation. Be thoughtful and genuine and recruiters will return the favor.

Don’t – Stress. Recruiters don’t care if you stumble over your words or forget our names or confuse us with other companies. We get it. Looking for a job is stressful and sometimes stress causes us to do funny things. Take a deep breath, it will all be fine.

I hope these tips help. Good recruiters will talk to anyone about anything in an effort to find the best talent on the planet. Good luck!

7 Top Reasons for getting Hacked


A few weeks ago, I  attended a Workshop on “Ethical Hacking” with the recommendation of my senior. It was Two days Workshop.It was about   Why we get hacked by hackers?How to prevent  from being hacked?How to get back the hacked account? etc…From that workshop I learned lots of  facts about Hacking.Based on Survey report 85% of Systems are already hacked by Hackers like our Facebook accounts,twitter and other social networks websites.Still,many of the users don’t have knowledge about the hacking.From the lessons I learned I  give you some Reasons why our accounts getting hacked. Make Use of it to Save your Accounts from Hackers…

1) Make a strong password:

          most of the folks Password  are easily crackable by Hackers.  So,Don’t use your name, mobile number or anything else.  A strong password should consists  alphabets, numbers and special characters. A password of 10 words is good. Don’t use the same password for number of accounts so that we can protect your account from being hacked.

2) Change your passwords regularly.

                        Don’t use the same password for a long period of time. Change your Password for all your accounts in a particular interval of time.

3) Make strong privacy settings

                            Add mobile number and secondary  email id in privacy settings. Mobile number will help you to easily recover your password.  Don’t click on suspicious links which are displayed anywhere on the browser. For Secure Privacy setting  Always use custom privacy setting.

4. Links, messages, posts:

Don’t click on the  Suspicious links which are displayed anywhere on the sites. If you got any message which consists of suspicious links then immediately delete them. Don’t believe on the advertisements which are displayed saying that you earn this much and Dont Believe on the unwanted posts on the sites.

5) Always Check the  login page 

Always check the URL on the address bar. Those pages will never have same addresses. If you enter your email id & password in those pages then hacker will come to know about your email id & password. Then hacker will login & cause trouble. Immediately change password.

6) Social Engineering:

          Social Engineering means The Person who wants to hack Your accounts act like your pal and  gain basic information about you like name, mobile number, place you live, postal code, birth date etc..  Then they sent mail to the account company with all the details and claiming that the ownership. Today many people also use Security question for hacking accounts. So never share your security question with anyone.

7)  Keylogging, Key Stroking:

              Keylogging, KeyStroking are more dangerous.  They send you photo, file or anything else. So the programs automatically get installed in your computer.If you have saved your password in your browser then password automatically goes to attacker or hack.
