By On Sep 29, 2018 Resume Template
Resumes in today job market are no longer mere summaries of one’s work experience (as they were thirty years ago). Rather, they are self-marketing documents that, ideally, demonstrate how your qualifications align perfectly with those requested in a job advertisement. Highlighting qualifications is particularly important because many employers use automated applicant tracking systems that are programmed to search for keyword phrases related to their desired qualifications in their candidates. Here’s how to make your qualifications “pop” on your resume.
To help you do this, we’ve written easy-to-follow steps on how to write a resume. Before we get into the steps it should be noted that there is no certified way to write one. There are some who insist otherwise, but even certified professional resume writers will admit that, “a guiding principle of the résumé writing profession is that there are no hard and fast rules.” With that being said, below are some tips and guidelines to help you write one that best presents your career goals.
The section is the core of your resume, where you are tasked with proving the skills you have listed in the qualifications summary or career objective. When it comes to labeling this section some use “Relevant Experience,” or “Work Experience” as an alternative to “Professional Experience.” Remember to list your work experiences in reverse chronological order and only list experience that is relevant to the job you are applying for. For each company create a heading including the company’s name, city & state, your title, and the dates of employment (month and year). If you are still currently working at a company, you can simply write “month, year-Present” for the employment dates.
