A WELL WRITTEN RESUME WILL RESULT IN:
RESUMES MUST BE ALL OF THIS:
1. BE TAILORED TO THE JOB YOU ARE APPLYING FOR
Hiring managers won’t try and see if you are a fit. You need to show you are a fit. Include information that the hiring manager wants to see. LinkedIn is where you tell your WHOLE story. The resume is your hook.
2. LOOK GOOD – CLEAN, ORGANIZED, AND MODERN
Use a template. Hiring managers want to look at good-looking resumes. So, they can find what they need easily. You need to make your resume look good – so they want to look at it. This doesn’t mean graphics and pictures but it does mean correct spelling and easy to read.
3. SHOW QUALIFIED ACCOMPLISHMENTS
It’s not JUST about your responsibilities. What you did + how you did it + results = accomplishment bullet points to put on your resume.
4. BE ON ONE PAGE
One page is the best way to get a hiring manager to quickly see you have the right experience. If you have 10 plus years of experience, two pages are fine but NO more than 2 pages.
Font Size: 9-10 font / Margin Size: 1 Inch
5. BE CONSISTENT
If you add a period at the end of each sentence, do it on ALL of them. Consistency communicates quality and gets you in the YES pile.
6. BE FREE OF GRAMMATICAL AND SPELLING ERRORS
