Resume Writing Tip

Here are some tips to help you write a winning resume.

Determine your objective. Determined your objective then structure the content of your resume around that objective. Without a clear objective in mind your resume will likely be unfocused to those that read it.

A resume gets you an interview. There is no need to get into extreme detail about everything you have done. Be clear and concise and use the resume to generate enough interest in you to have an employer contact you for to set up an interview. You can provide more detailed descriptions of your experience at the interview to land a job offer.

Use bullet points. Use bullets with short sentences rather than long blocks of text in paragraph format. Resumes are typically skimmed through and bullets are easier for someone to scan your resume and pick out key points.

Use action verbs. Use bulleted sentences that begin with action verbs.

Prioritize your points. Since resumes are typically skimmed over quickly at first make sure strong points stand out.

Include buzzwords. Include relevant keywords in your resume.

Highlight what you know. Give enough info to show what you know but dont go into minute detail. You can go over the detail during an interview.

Make your resume easy to skim through. Leave enough white space, use an appropriate font size, etc.. Help the reader to pick out key info easily.

Start sending your resume to potential employers. Your odds of landing a job increase with every resume you submit.
