No matter when you’re about to go on a job hunt, it’s always best to have an updated resume ready to go. While how we go about interviews has changed a lot through the last few years, the foundations of writing a resume have stayed along the same path. Let us cover the basics to get you started!
Be strategic on what you put on your resume. You don’t want to write down every accomplishment and award you’ve ever gotten. It’s best to research the company and take a good look at the job description and base your skills/qualifications on what you found. If your skills match what the company is looking for, you should be able to whip up a strong resume.
Keep your format and font the same throughout the resume. There is no need for anything flashy with different colors and highlighting. You don’t want to distract your potential employer with something unnecessary on your resume. Keep it clean and simple.
And finally, be sure to include different types of experiences. You want to show that you have experienced different things that make you a well-rounded employee. There is more than just doing the work in a job, as we all know. In the professional world, you need to be able to problem-solve, be creative and think outside the box. Plus, experiencing a whole bunch of things is exciting and makes life interesting.
Writing a resume can be a daunting task but taking it one step at a time will help!
