Steps to Writing a Resume

Although most professionals hire a professional resume writer, some do it themselves. People whose job is writing (i.e novelists, tech writers, some marketing people, editors, etc) have a better chance at putting together a decent presentation but anyone can learn aat least the basic steps to writing a resume.

First important step to writing a resume: Format and Presentation is Important
The average resume is quickly skimmed through. A good presentation will make it easy for the reader to quickly pick out the most important points.

If you are an experienced professional, use a chronological resume. If not then consider a functional/combination resume with key skills at the beginning and a short chronological work history afterwards.

- Include your contact info
- Make sure there are no errors - use a spell check and also have someone review your resume for mistakes
- Use a consistent format

More steps to writing a resume: Avoid these common errors
- Try not to use "I", "me" or "my" statements; drop the pronoun to make it more active
- Avoid unnecessary phrases like "responsible for..." and "duties included..."
- Do not include personal info, birth date, marriage and family status
- Do not include a photograph
- Do not include your salary or expectations
