Make Your Resume Stand Out - More Numbers, Fewer Words
Are you sick of not landing job interviews? Are you applying for jobs you feel you are more than qualified for, but not having any success? More than likely, the problem has more to do with the way your resume is written than not having the right skill sets for the job. Resume writing is an art form and in order to be successful your resume needs to pass four major rules:
1. Skills and qualifications are highlighted in order to make your resume instantly stand out. Reports suggest once a hiring manager or recruiter opens your resume you have between 10-20 seconds to make an impact. No impact, no interview, no job!
2. Strategic keywords to highlight your achievements and pass online screening software tools that are used to reduce the amount of candidate resumes that a business may receive for a certain role.
3. Formatted, structured and presented specifically to target your experience and industry
4. Presented in a professional manner using the correct font, bullet points, headings, length, and most importantly error-free!
