Spotlight on: Montreal

Montreal, home to one of Canada’s largest economies, is a hub for technology, commerce, industry, and culture. 2017 marks the 375th anniversary of the founding of this historic city, which will be celebrated with a variety of events, tournaments, exhibitions, concerts, and more. Montreal is among the most bilingual cities in Canada, with 56% of inhabitants able to speak both French and English.

While it is known best for its key role in the finance industry, Montreal is also a major player in the software, aerospace, pharmaceutical, telecommunication, manufacturing, and education industries. Because of its strategic location – and the fact that it has one of the largest inland ports in the world – Montreal is a central location for the transportation of goods by rail, air, and water. Many major Canadian corporations and institutions have their headquarters in Montreal, including Air Canada, Bell Canada, Pratt and Whitney, and Via Rail.

Montreal is also a cultural hotspot. A multitude music and film festivals take place here each year, drawing people from across the nation to take part. Additionally, Montreal is home to the Cirque du Soleil and the Opéra de Montréal. Sports fans can rejoice too – Montreal proudly supports several pro and semi-pro teams, including the Montreal Canadiens (hockey), the Alouettes (Canadian football), and the Impact (soccer). Montreal also hosts the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix.

With such a wide variety of leisure activities, events, and career opportunities, Montreal is just the place to find that perfect work/life balance. Think we’re on to something?

Recruiter Report on…Resumes

We sit down with three of BBG’s recruiting specialists, Kanupriya Jagdev, Sam Xie, and Lem Jopio to get their thoughts on resume-writing and the selection process.

Q: What makes for a positive first impression with a resume?

Kanupriya: A well-organized resume with correct formatting, no punctuation errors, having page numbers and correct grammar. Sometimes, the candidates have the knowledge and experience we are looking for, but it is not mentioned on the resume, so a tailor-made resume for the job helps a lot! Many candidates use pictorial/graphical/diagram representations of their experience, which catches attention. For example, providing samples of system set-ups by a systems administrator.

Sam: Having a well-done layout and appropriate font and font size.

Lem: Effective use of white space.


Q: Resume-reading pet peeve?

Kanupriya: Very long resumes with irrelevant information.

Sam: Not providing contact information on the resume.

Lem: Spelling mistakes and poor language proficiency.


Q: Biggest red flag/deal breaker?

Kanupriya: ‘Job hoppers’, aka someone who changes jobs as frequently as a couple of months and has had a lot of jobs throughout their career.

Sam: Spelling and grammar mistakes, using the exact same wording for different job applications, employment gaps and frequently changing jobs.

Lem: Lack of relevant work experience and significant gaps with work dates.


Q: Best resume-writing advice:

Kanupriya: Have your resume reviewed before sending it across, maybe by a professor, recruiter, or someone in the field. Skim through it for 20 seconds and decide if you could see yourself being a good fit considering the requirements on the job description.

Sam: Summary sections with skills and experience highlighted will be super eye-catching, as they will raise our interests to continue reading your profile. Also, include your coding sample or portfolio links in the resume if applicable for the position.

Lem: My ideal resume is one that’s less than 2 pages long, aesthetically pleasing, and easy on the eyes.  It shows a considerable amount of effort was accomplished to help land a future position.

Tailor-Made for Success: Revamping Your Resume

After scrolling through seemingly endless pages of job postings, you’ve finally struck gold – BBG Management has the perfect opportunity for you! You’ve got your resume uploaded, ready to submit for review… but wait! Before you send it in, you’ll need to make some changes to make it clear that you’re the right person for this specific job.

Tailoring your resume may be time-consuming, but it’s worth it. First of all, it demonstrates to recruiters that you’re really invested in this opportunity – you’ve taken the time to fine-tune and customize your resume, something that not all job seekers are willing to do. Second, it gives them key relevant information at a glance, saving them time and energy investigating your qualifications. After all, it’s easier for them to see how well you match up for the role if you’ve already highlighted it for them.

So how do you go about tweaking things?

  • Start out by reading the job description in detail. Look at the requirements and responsibilities, cross-referencing them with your listed skills, experience, and education. If you’ve forgotten or omitted anything relevant listed in the job posting, go ahead and add it to your resume. Do not fabricate or exaggerate skills in your resume, though – it will do more harm than good in the long run!
  • Once you’ve added in any additional qualifications and/or skills, remember to remove irrelevant information that isn’t directly related to the position. Ensure that your resume is concise and flows well.
  • Tailor your vocabulary to the job you are applying for. Demonstrate that you’re knowledgeable about your field by using keywords and specific language (use the job description to help you if you’re having trouble). It’s important to remember that recruiters are often not experts in the fields they are recruiting for, so avoid excessively technical jargon or acronyms.
  • Ensure that all changes have been proofread and edited and that everything is still formatted properly. Once you’ve finalized your newly-customized resume, it’s ready to send in.

Congratulations! You have just significantly improved your chances of landing an interview. Why? By tailoring your resume, you’ve proven that you really are invested and interested in this specific opportunity.

While constantly editing and revising your resume may get tiring, remember this: it’s always better to submit 10 well-written, nicely tailored resumes than to fire off 100 generic ones without a second thought. Your motto here should always be quality over quantity!
