Dear HR Manager / Headhunter / Recruitment Consultant :

One recent survey showed that nearly 25%of the resumes are faked / fudged. Some blatantly, some in a subtle manner. In most cases , such mis-information related to past / current work experience (Employers – Position / Designation – years worked – salary drawn etc).
Now he is a rare candidate who organizes his “Career History” in an easy – to read tabulation , in a reverse chronological order , with current job , right at the top. And even that rare jobseeker’s resume does not voluntarily answer , your following questions :

What is his total experience? Does this match with the experience required for our position/vacancy?
  During this “total experience”, how many jobs has he changed ?
Does he seem to be a “job-jumper” ?
Does he seem to have stuck to the same organization for a long time? What could be the reason?
Does he seem to have stuck at the same “Designation – Level “ for a long time ? Was he “un-promotable” ?
He seems to have got very frequent promotions /salary-raise. Does he come through as a “Fast Track” candidate?
Given his “Average/Longest/Minimum” tenure with the companies where he worked, how long can we expect him to stay with us?
He is in his current job for less than a year. Why is he keen to quit within such a short period?
Is he platueing? i.e. rose very rapidly in early years but now seems to have slowed down.

In terms of the size/turnover/reputation of the companies where he has worked, does he seem to have steadily “progressed”? Are there any reversals? i.e. leaving a large/organized company to join a small/family owned company.

Has he spent his entire career in one city or is he mobile?

Does his “Total Years of Experience” tally with his current age ? If not, does he seem to have “inflated” his experience ? Or, he should have got 20 years of experience by now, but graph shows only 12 years ! Has he failed to “list” some “unfavorable” tenures? e.g.: where his services were terminated or where the service was “temporary/contractual” ?

Did any of the companies that he worked for, belong to his father/relative? If so, what was his designation/salary during such tenure? Was that commensurate with his qualifications/experience?

During his career, were there any periods of “self-employment” ? If so, has he listed those in his “Career History” section? What factors made him “start/give-up” such self employment?

Not only Career Profile answer those questions (or , at least raise those questions), it dose it graphically !
