Resume Tips

Are you struggling with how to compose your resume? Do you have trouble featuring your experience and accomplishments in the best way? The following points will help you get started and keep going until you reach your goal, the job you are seeking.

  1. Start with the end result in mind. Your goal should be to get an interview with one of the companies you would like to work for. During that first interview your resume will be the beginning and focus of the discussion.

  2. Be aware of the processes involved in today’s recruiting environment. The traditional paper resume is now often handled electronically and pre-screened by a computer program. E-mails with attachments are rapidly replacing the phone and fax routine.

  3. Brush up on current resume trends. Lots of books and software, such as Resume Maker, are available at bookstores and from the library.

  4. Keep in mind that the resume, cover letter, broadcast letter, etc. are all marketing tools. You are advertising a commodity which is you. Your training, abilities, skills and experience are what the employers are shopping for. Employers base decision upon intuition and emotion as well as facts and figures. They need to be sold.

  5. Start with an outline, based upon the resume format which suits your situation best, if you are stuck and writer’s block is keeping you from getting the words on paper. Work on the easiest parts first such as previous employment information. Momentum will build as the resume begins to come together. Before you know it you will be checking for typos and sentence structure.

  6. Begin sending resumes to the companies highest on your list of places you would like to work. If they are currently advertising an opening- great. If not, still let them know that you are qualified, interested and available.

  7. Keep a routine going, whether you are between jobs or just exploring other employment opportunities. Record your progress. It may seem like nothing is being accomplished but when you check your progress you will see that you have effectively marketed yourself to a number of companies.

  8. Don’t get discouraged. Keep in mind it doesn’t matter how many no thank you responses you get. You only need one yes that says, welcome aboard. Having two or three interested employers gives you the luxury of being selective.

  9. Keep a balanced perspective. A job search can be a frustrating and time consuming routine. A little diversion keeps the spirits up. Rent a movie, visit with friends, walk the dog. Staying fresh and optimistic improves your chances for success.

  10. Maintain contact with the companies you are pursuing. The hiring process may take the company many weeks or more to complete. They may not have had an opening when you first sent out your resume, but now a position has opened up and they have a need to fill it quickly.
