Write Great Resumes, Get Noticed, Get Interviewed,

How To Write a Great Resume - Instructions

Resume writing requires conveying several key points to your potential employer, your name, address, and contact information, your job history and education. It can be very dull. Great resume writing conveys this same information with flair, showcasing your strengths and accomplishments, highlighting the crowning achievements of your career and turning a dull read into a compelling story about you that leaves the employer wanting to meet you. That is the purpose of a resume; getting the interview, you have to take it from there.

The modern resume looks different from the resume of twenty years ago, the layout itself has changed. The most radical difference is right after the name, address and contact information. In the past what followed was often a statement of goals like, “Obtain a management position with a leading bank.” There are a few styles that can replace this. One is a more dynamic two-part description of your career highlights. The first line is a few well-chosen words that best describe your strengths and please, use your thesaurus or dictionary. These words must be bold, exciting and appropriate to a work environment.

The second part is a description of your career titled “Executive Summary” or similarly, depending upon your position. These two to four sentences, actually sentence fragments, should use action words for example, “Passionate about quality and customer service.”
Some resumes pair the executive summary with a section titled “Core Competencies”. This section can be bulleted and states your greatest strengths such as “strategic planning”, “quality control”, or “marketing analysis”. The reason these new styles have become popular is that they read as a mini resume, giving the employer a quick overview of you and avoiding the inevitable eye glazing that takes place after skimming dozens of resumes.

There are many other tricks as well. A great resume is your foot in the door, your first impression. You won't get a second chance, make it count!
