How to Craft A Resume That Stands Out

With the current health crisis in the world and the volatile economy that has ensued because of that, there have been many changes in people’s jobs. Are you one of the thousands of people that is looking for work? Here are some helpful tips on how to craft a resume that stands out from the crowd and helps you land the job of your dreams.

Tip #1: Create a resume that fits the job.

Narrow down a few of the jobs that you think are the best fit for your skills and experience. Then, adjust and update your resume accordingly. Use keywords in the job description on your resume. For example, if there are some specific qualifications listed in the job, highlight them on your resume in a special section. Customizing your resume will make it stand out from other more generic resumes.

Tip #2: Simplify it.

Keeping your resume simple is important. Keep in mind that the person hiring for the position is probably very busy and is sifting through a lot of different resumes. They don’t want to read resumes that are too wordy or pages long. So, keep sections short with bullet points. Keep the most relevant information at the top and if possible, keep the resume two pages or less.

Tip #3: Check for errors.

There’s nothing worse than having a glaring typo or mistake on your resume. Think of your resume as a first glance at who you are as a person. You want to appear polished and show that you have taken the time to read through the resume in every detail. So, proofread it and ask a friend or family member to read it, too. An extra set of eyes will help you spot any mistakes. In addition, it will also open a line of communication for suggestions to make the resume better.

A great resume is a great first impression for a potential employer. In a time where there are a lot of people looking and applying for jobs, you will need to do what you can to stand out in the crowd. Employers can spot a well-crafted resume. The more time you put into it, the more likelihood you must get an interview and ultimately, a job offer.
