YOUR resume is unique to you. It relates your professional history in an enticing way that employers must find irresistible. You have to make your qualifications sound so awesome that the employer will not WANT to call anyone else. You will be a perfect match for the employer and the vacant position. To understand what makes a resume accomplish this feat, you have to look at what is allowed and what is not in today’s competitive marketplace. Read the list of Do’s and Don’ts below and ensure your marketing materials are top notch.
You can’t proofread too much!
Use quantifiable accomplishments wherever possible. What did you do to help make money for the organization? Were you responsible for saving the organization money?
Quantifiable results can be expressed as:
Use good quality paper. Keep the color neutral, such as white or ivory. Linen paper, paper with watermarks and those with heavier weight (at least 24lb or higher) are great choices.
Just tell the truth. By all means, present your achievements in the best possible light, but be careful about stretching the truth. If you don’t tell the truth, it will likely come back to haunt you. You may not be able to perform the functions of the job very well and get yourself fired. The truth may come out at some point and according to company regulations, you guessed it, you get yourself fired. It’s not worth it.
