Write a Resume that Gets Noticed
The thought of writing a resume intimidates almost everyone. It is difficult to know where to start or what to include, so we have provided some tips below to help you write a resume that will get noticed.
Determine Your Objective –
In your objective statement, clearly and briefly state the position you are applying for and your qualifications. It should be no longer than 1-3 lines of text. Once your objective is developed, you can then structure the rest of your resume around that objective.
Market Yourself – You have one chance to impress the hiring manager, use your resume as an opportunity to sell yourself. Be sure to list your skills and accomplishments. Remember, your resume is a tool used to obtain the interview, not the job. So, you don’t need to go into extensive detail about every accomplishment.
Use Action Words – Using action words will make your resume stand out. Words like prepared, developed, attained or managed will grab the hiring manager’s attention.
Utilize Key Words – Incorporate industry specific words into your resume. For example, if you are interviewing for a marketing position, you might include words and phrases like: strategy, return on investment, competitive analysis and positioning. Also, pull key words from the job description and incorporate them into your resume.
Tweak Your Resume – Your resume shouldn’t remain a static piece. You should review and customize it for each position that you apply for. This is easy to do, simply incorporate key words from the position’s job description.
Details, Details – Take the time to make sure that your resume is correct and free of any errors. Also, be sure to follow any instructions the hiring company provides regarding your resume. Once you have looked over your resume, send it to a friend for review.
