A resume can be the one thing that stands in the doorway for your dream job. Polishing off your resume every few weeks will increase the chances of a solid piece of document.
1. Qualifications Profile:
The qualifications profile will outline what your ambitions are and how you want to pursue them. Write the purpose of your resume, what you are seeking in a position or career goal.
Seeking a professional and challenging position to utilize my highly creative and multitalented social media marketing tactics, exceptional leadership abilities, well-developed written and verbal communication abilities, and project management experience to benefit the organization within a diverse and team environment.
2. Keyword Optimization
Include skills or qualities that demonstrate your expertise in the industry. Use the right keywords, “communication, effective motivator, project management” or bullet point a few of your specialities. I snapped a screenshot of what skills were displayed on my resume:
3. Education is important
Educational credentials will assist to create a strong resume. Higher education demonstrates your self-power to continue education to learn and grow your mind. Include vocational and technical experience such as career center or dual-enrollment. If you have certifications, study abroad or graduate school.
4. Check your references
Before filling in references from your past work experience, reach out to each individual for permission. When asking permission, you are not only connecting with that person again; but you are giving notice that a company may contact them.
5. Proofread before printing
Ask a colleague, professor or business professional to constructively critique your resume before submitting to a business. I find it helpful to ask more than one person for advice.
