Your resume is one of the first things a potential employer notices about you. Your resume is your advertisement/marketing tool to reach your goal. So how can you ensure that your resume reflects you in the most professional and attention-grabbing way?
By adding a little extra effort, you can create a resume that makes you stand out as a superior candidate for the job you are seeking. Your resume should highlight your skills, strengths, and volunteering and/or affiliations.
Your Objective should highlight a clear concise view of your overall career goals. In your objective be sure to put in a brief description of how an employer can benefit from hiring you and add how your skills can be an asset to the company.
For example: “To provide administrative support with a law firm that can benefit from my 15 years of direct experience as a legal secretary…” will definitely hook an employer.
Below are 4 tips to help you brush up your resume for your next job opportunity.
Analyze your work history:
Sometimes it’s not “what is presented, but how it’s presented” that matters. Check out your work history and how these skills are beneficial to the position in which you are applying. Individualizing your resume for each job shows dedication to the employer and also helps show your qualifications to that specific position.
List relevant work history first:
Employers are not interested in what you did in the past if it doesn’t pertain to what you will be doing in the position that you are applying to. Remember that many applicants are also applying for the same position. If you don’t want your resume at the bottom of the pile be sure to let your qualifications to jump off the page.
Short and to the point:
Make sure that each sentence is short and to the point. Many employers are busy and pressed for time; unfortunately, they don’t have time to read a long-winded paper. Your resume should be no longer than a page to a page and a half. This will allow you adequate space to state your qualifications as they pertain to the position in question.
Clean and Neat:
Be sure that your resume is typed, properly spaced, and that it is written on adequate paper. Also, be sure there are no stains, marks, or creases on the resume before you turn it in. Take the time to keep it looking professional when handing it to the employer or place of business.
