Lol. Did you actually go interview at Google? That proof of interview offer is pretty weak. Recruiters will often get your information and then ghost you if they don't think you'll pass.

They are re-requesting my resume after the original submission of my resume weeks previous. The other proof shows a more traditional invitation to schedule an interview. In both cases, submitting my resume online resulted in the interview.

This is such bullshit.

As someone who heads up a lot of professional development programs at my school and has interviewed countless times, your resume is the least of your worries in getting an interview with a company like Goldman/Google/etc. There is no magic bullet format where you can fool anyone into letting you interview because these companies aren't stupid.

The way you get interviews with companies that don't recruit at your school is networking, plain and simple. The best way of making it past a resume screen (both automated and human, by the way) is by finding a referrer willing to endorse you at your company at choice. There is no shortcut, and to imply so would be ridiculous.

So my question for you is, how many different contacts did your mommy and daddy have to reach out to for you to get your interviews - that you failed! And then at what point did you decide to milk your interviews for all they were worth so you could be the world's trendiest snake oil salesman?

"To drove" should be "to drive" but to be honest I stopped reading it right there.

Yes we get that using buzzwords are important and some words should be avoided altogether. Personally with the hiring I have done a typo automatically puts you in the "probably will not hire" category because you're showing poor attention to detail, especially on an important document. Resumes should be personalized and the creator should take pride in them.

It is just a formatting that allows job seekers to add as much content to their resume as possible without going wild.

The Rezi Score is a measure of completeness for each resume in a user’s dashboard. Simply put, the Rezi Score considers the amount of resume content, compares it to a target, and translates the difference into an index measured from 1 to 100.

Yes exactly right - it is a normal resume - It makes a perfectly formatted resume for large companies without any prior knowledge of how to make a resume before hand. It makes it impossible to incorrectly format a resume.

And that was the problem to fix - even though the resume is normal - the majority of people don't understand how to make a normal resume. The software has a ton of other features too.

For the fake upvotes, there are not any - This entire post blew up for some reason I don't understand.

Oh and the avoidance of the point blank question "do you sell user's data" that had to be made even more blunt and obvious makes it clear as day you have no qualms with doing so in the future if need want be.

Going to just put this out to the universe and hope my luck turns because I really need it and my souls been hurting from carrying it maybe I’m just slowly losing my mind over it too which sucks

I am really passionate and try hard to reach my best potential, make good things other people enjoy, and my own personal projects bring my satisfaction but it’s miserable to cope with this 750 denials later all entry roles and 6 resume rewrites over it it’s like is there really nothing I can do? At this point I’ve put more than a job into my projects and my stuff even helps more people than live in my entire town every single month and I want to just show I am competent to help and quick to adapt so it really hurts me that I can’t even get a chance when I’ve spent all this time offering a lot of my best building up and it makes me worried that if I never find this job maybe I won’t be able to pursue it forever and this makes me upset when it’s my first real passion I’ve felt driven to do I don’t want this spark to die and wish I didn’t feel like I was failing to build it into anything.
