Your professional Resume is a key part of your search success. It’s more than a piece of paper. It’s your work history, organized in chronological (or functional) order highlighting your skill sets, accomplishments, and successes.
It is important to always remember that a resume is not an end in itself, but rather a means to gain an interview.
The Hallmarks of a Good Resume
- Create a well constructed and accurate account of your professional experience and expertise.
- Focus on accomplishments and results (numbers can add proof), not just job duties
- Utilize proper spelling, grammar, syntax, and punctuation
- Include the right keywords for search engines and job boards matched to the specific position
- Stimulate, through content and format, an interest on the part of the reader to secure an interview
