He appealed to the students to make their resumes such that they would be easy to read—to summarize their accomplishments and skills and highlight relevant experience. Moreover, he geared the focus of participants towards the statistical figures, such that he mentioned that an average job opening receives 250 resumes, and up to 88% of them are considered unqualified.
