- Understand the purpose of a resume.
This will help you to identify what is really important to focus on
when putting yours together. Basically, a résumé is a brief overview of
your experience and credentials put together in such a way as to sell
you as one of the best choices for a prospective employer to interview.
It initiates the process of introducing yourself to the employer.
Therefore, given that a résumé is both introductory and a personal
sales presentation, a good résumé will be concise, easy to read,
positive, and interesting.
- A résumé is not a mere summary of
what you've done – a résumé needs to be focused on the job targeted,
making the content relevant to the hiring team's viewpoint. An often-made mistake is to develop a "one-size-fits-all" résumé without tailoring it to the specifics of the job.
- Look at existing résumé examples to get a good feel for putting
together a good résumé. Borrow books on résumé writing from the local
library, or get online and check out résumés uploaded by various
people. Within your industry, it's often possible to get a search
return for people who have submitted résumés that have been made public
and stored electronically, and this gives you a great opportunity to
see how the top people in your industry prepare their résumés.
- Know what the reader will be looking to get out of a résumé. Key
professional behaviors that a reader will want to see leap out from
reading your resume include communication and listening skills, ability
to be a team player, goal orientation, analytical skills, motivation
and initiative, reliability and dedication, determination, confidence,
pride and integrity, efficiency, and the ability to follow directions.
2Make it easy to read.
The manner of presentation will impact how easy it is to read the
résumé. Use good taste when developing a résumé and forget gimmicks; in
general, recruiters approach resumes conservatively and do not like or
trust being presented with resumes printed on color paper, in 3D, with
unusual fonts, or shaped like whatever product the company's trying to
sell. Stay with what is
tried and trusted because recruiters like the familiar, and anything
that bucks that trend risks a negative reaction.
