Here are several Resume Writing
Tips to help you get started.
Choosing A Proper Resume Format -
The two most common resume formats are the
Chronological Resume format and Functional Resume format with the former
favored by most employers.
Chronological Resume format is ideal for job seekers staying in
the same career field and/or do not have a break in their
employment history. In contrast, the Functional Resume
format is better suited to people intent on changing career
fields, transitioning from the military to the private sector,
having breaks in employment, etc.
A Perfect Resume
Objective Statement -
not overlook the Resume Objective Statement section. A
poorly written Resume Objective Statement is a recipe for resume
and job search failure.
conceived, properly written Resume Objective Statements are
short, to the point, and include a specific job title.
Here are two examples of a Resume Objective Statement:
- Resume Objective
- A challenging Customer
Service Representative position
- Resume Objective
- A position where I can
share my experience and help the Company grow
Image yourself as a Recruiter or
Employer. Which of the above Resume Objective Statements
would tell you more about the job seeker's interests?
Clearly, the answer is Resume Objective Statement #1.
Here's why ... it is short and to the point. Importantly, it immediately tells employers the exact position
(Customer Service Representative) being sought by the job
Conversely, Resume Objective Statement #2 reveals
nothing of real value to the employer. The reader has no idea
what position the job seeker is seeking. All that the
reader knows is that the job seeker wants to share his or her
experience and help the company grow. But in what
capacity? Does the job seeker want to be the President of
the Company? An Engineer, Customer Service
Representative, etc? Don't leave recruiters and employers
wondering. Reveal your objective in a short, very
matter-of-fact Resume Objective Statement.
