Our hope is that once you read through this blog post, you have the knowledge you need to create the perfect resume.
Without further delay, let’s dive right into this week’s blog post! Oh, and when you’re done reading through it, please be sure to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at your community of apartments on Almeda Rd.
Do the hiring manager’s work for them.
Put yourself in the shoes of a hiring manager. They’re looking through dozens of resumes every day, trying to find one that has all the qualifications they’re looking for. You can make their life easier – and give yourself a better chance at the job — by putting the relevant info up near the top. Not only will this help the hiring manager identify your skills as they relate to the job, but it will make their job easier. This can go a long way towards convincing the hiring manager to give you a call.
Don’t write an objective — write a career summary.
When you first got out of college, you were probably told to write and objective up near the top of your resume. An objective is a one or two sentence description of your career goals as they pertain to the role you’re applying for. Now that you have a career, it’s probably a good idea to replace that objective statement with a career summary. Tell a short story about where you’ve been, and explain the job you’re applying for is the logical next step in your career.
This doesn’t apply to all jobs, but it does apply to most. The more you can quantify your accomplishments, the more success you’ll have when applying to jobs. Don’t just say that you, “managed a marketing team.” Talk about how many people you managed, how many clients you served, and how many projects you worked on every month.
