First impressions in the hiring process start with a resume (or CV, curriculum vitae). When screening any candidate, be wary of the multiple-page, here-is-everything-I-have-done-since-birth resume. In my experience, there is an inverse correlation between the length of a person’s resume and their accomplishments. People with one-page resumes tend to have accomplished more than people with three-page resumes. Big accomplishments are easy to state concisely and require little explanation.
