When asking for feedback, include a job posting as well for them to review so they know what job you’re applying for, or at least to get a general idea of the type of job you’re applying for.
Good spelling and grammar is crucial on a resume.
How do you ask someone to look at your resume?
Emphasize that you’re looking for advice—not for a job. Hold back from attaching your resume for now. If the person’s interested, he or she will ask. Feel free to follow-up with a quick email if you don’t hear back within a week or so—but don’t be pushy.
Would you mind taking a look at my resume?
Although the interviewer should not inquire about a job, it is okay to look over his or her resume and offer recommendations on improvements. This way, their resume will be much better if they actually apply for a job in the future.
