Your resume is the first thing an employer sees before they call you in for an interview. If it’s not appealing, you will never get that call.
1. Make sure your resume is focused on the positions you are applying for. A good resume should clearly present the skills and experiences you have that are most relevant to the job for which you are applying. You may have to draft several resumes for different skill sets and focuses.
2. Focus on achievements. Explain what you did that really benefited your former employer to maintain business success.
3. Make sure there aren’t any grammar or spelling errors on your resume.
4. Use an active voice to describe your achievements by using action words.
5. Do not be repetitive. Use a thesaurus to describe the same skills differently.
