Resume Tips

Tips for writing a great resume

Determine your job search objective prior to writing the resume. Once you have determined an objective you can structure your resume around that objective.

  1. Think of your resume as a marketing tool. Market yourself through your resume. Why should a company hire you?
  2. Use your resume to obtain an interview, not a job. You want to generate enough interest to be called in for an interview. Use the interview to provide a more detailed explanation of your accomplishments.
  3. Use bulleted sentences. Resumes are read quickly. Bullets make it easier for someone to quickly scan your resume and still absorb it.
  4. Lead with your strengths. Put strengths first where they are more apt to be read.
  5. Accent the positives. Focus on job duties that support your objective.
  6. Use action words. Action words cause your resume to pop. For example, prepared, developed, monitored, and presented.
  7. Use #'s, $'s and %'s. Numbers, dollars, and percentages stand out in the body of a resume.
  8. Construct your resume to read easily. Remember, resumes are reviewed quickly. Help the reader to scan your resume efficiently and effectively.
  9. Have someone else read your resume. They may help you discover items you left off your resume.
