Make A Strong Resume

Have you ever thought of your resume as a personal marketing tool? If not, maybe it's time you do. Your resume should be designed to electrify potential employers by highlighting your most valuable skills and achievements. Get started by using our sure-fire tips.

Use Numbers

  • Quantify your achievements by using facts and figures that demonstrate results, such as dollars saved or number of people supervised.
  • Spell out numbers under and including "ten" and use the numerical form for 100 and beyond.

Keep It Simple

  • Make certain the job title you use is easily understandable by your reader (ie: Tax Accountant vs. Accounting Specialist II )
  • Don't bother using obscure vocabulary, select familiar words.
  • Utilize bullet points with short phrases.

Follow the Right Form

  • Instead of complete sentences, use short action phrases to list your accomplishments.
  • Avoid repeating the same action verb.
  • When describing a current position, use the present tense and vise versa when describing a past one.
  • Keep the length to one or two pages.

Update It

  • Update your resume every six months, even if you aren't actively looking for a job.
  • Show your work experience for the last 10-15 years.

Make It Look Good

  • Use standard 8-1/2 x 11 inch paper.
  • Soft colors such as white or beige are recommended, especially for scanning and copying purposes.
  • Don't forget to include matching envelopes.
  • Typeface should be easy-to-read (Courier, Times New Roman or Arial), so avoid the fancy script-like fonts. Stick to black ink.
  • Font size should be between 10-12 pts.
  • Highlight section headers with boldface type.
  • Be consistent by single spacing for individual sentences and double spacing between sections and paragraphs.
  • Make sure your margins have at least one inch of white space on the top and no less than one half-inch on the other three sides.
  • When printing your resume, look for a watermark. Hold your paper up to the light and you'll typically see the brand of the paper. Make sure the mark is right side up when you print.
  • Consider sending your resume in a 9x12 inch envelope so it doesn't have to be folded.

Choose Your Resume Style

Most suitable when:

  • Successful work record.
  • Patterns of accomplishments and skills.
  • Changing jobs in a related career field.
  • Worked in the same position for many years.
  • Trying to de-emphasize work history and spotlight transferable skills.

Least suitable when:

  • Lack of established work history.
  • No track record of career achievements.
  • New to the workforce.
Your Curriculum Vitae (CV) is the primary medium of presenting yourself as a candidate for a job to a prospective employer. But many of the job seekers do not give proper attention and care in preparing their CVs accurately. As a result, many potential job seekers do not get calls for job interviews to get the opportunity to present and prove their potential.

Interview Tips

TIPS FOR INTERVIEW:

Here are a few suggestions on how to approach the interview process:

  • Research the company. It is good to become familiar with the organization, the position and the person who may be your boss. Try to match your skills and experience to the position you are seeking.
  • Look good. First impressions are lasting, so make it count. Projecting a confident and professional image is essential. Dress professionally, but don't overdo it with jewelry or excessive perfume or cologne.
  • Know the location of the interview. Consider driving/ arriving at the location in advance. Rushing around trying to find the facility can add to your nervousness.
  • Know your resume. Be prepared to discuss and defend every aspect of your education and career experience.
  • Focus more on the interview, less on the job. There's time to evaluate the job and whether you want it after the interviewer has learned about you. For now, your goal is to get invited back for a second interview or an offer. Then you can decide if the job is just what you want.
  • Talk about your previous contributions. Prospective employers are interested in knowing how you made a difference in your previous job. In a way, you need to convince the interviewer that you're the answer to the company's needs.
  • Look for ways to sell yourself. Seize opportunities to tell the prospective employer how good you are. Be careful not to boast, but speak confidently about your skills.
  • Don't overdo it. Choose your words carefully and don't talk too much. Most people only retain 20 percent of what they hear. Select your words, speak clearly and get to the point.
  • Avoid fear by visualizing the interview. It's just an interview, not the gallows, so imagine the experience in advance. Try to visualize various things like your clothing, items to bring, physical presentation, eye contact, body language, etc.
  • Listen carefully. Pause briefly after each question before you respond to be sure the interviewer has finished speaking. Answer questions directly and concisely. If you don't understand, ask for clarification.
  • Bring your questions. You also are interviewing the company, too. Start with questions about the organization and move to career growth, working conditions, etc. Save benefits and compensation for last.
  • Write down important data. Get the names and titles of the people with whom you interview. Be sure the spelling is correct, as you may need the information later.
  • Don't run away. After the interview, don't just hop up and head down the hall. Try to leave a good final impression by letting the interviewer know you really want the job and that you're ready to move to the next step in the employment process. If that doesn't feel right, simply ask about the next step in the process.
  • Obtain resources. Grab an annual report, product information or other data that will give you a better picture of the company and the kind of work you might be doing.
  • Don't become invisible. Following the interview there is a way in which you can be contacted, even if you are out of town.
