Having a good resume is an important part of landing the right job! Here are some tips we’ve compiled from our experience:
- Use action words such as “created”, “managed”, “initiated.”
- Be sure to proofread your resume carefully for spelling and grammatical errors.
- Don’t use the first person singular (“I” or “me”).
- Where possible, state how the results of your accomplishments benefited your department or company.
- Quantify as much as possible: how many dollars you saved the company, how many people you managed, etc.
- Emphasize your experience and skills that are relevant to the position you are looking for.
- Highlight your most important responsibilities, even if they weren’t your primary job responsibilities.
- List the most relevant and important points first; don’t make the reader wade through half your resume before coming across your most impressive skills.
- Gear your resume towards the position you are looking for.
- Your resume should be clear and concise.
- Include your dates of employment.
- Be truthful as to your skills and experience; you can expect to have both assessed aside from your resume claims.
