Resume Tips

6. Use bullet points

No employer will have the time or patience to read long paragraphs of text. Make sure to use bullet points and short sentences to describe your experiences, educational background and professional objectives. This can’t be overstated.

7. Attention to typography

First of all make sure that your fonts are big enough - 12 is preferable and Times and Arial are good, clean choices. Your goal is to communicate a message as quickly  and as clearly as possible.

8. Where are you going?

Including professional goals can help you by giving employers an idea of where you are going, and how you want to arrive there. State clearly in your Objective what your career goal is and reinforce that in the body of your resume.

9. Do not include overly obvious information

Too many resumes include statements like “Available for interview” or “References available upon request.” If you are sending a resume to a company, it is given that you are available for an interview and that you will provide references if requested.

10. Explain the benefits of your skills

Simply stating that you can do something will not catch the attention of the employer. If you can briefly explain how it will benefit his company, and to connect it to real results, then you will greatly improve your chances of obtaining an interveiw.
