Importance of Resume

Many recruiters spend only 10 seconds reviewing each resume they receive from job applicants.

The world of Business is constantly moving. Time is extremely valuable to recruiters who need to fill open positions and maintain human capital with limited resources in record time.

In addition, competition for the best jobs in today’s employment market is tremendous. Recruiters oftentimes receive hundreds or even thousands of resumes for an open position.

Your resume is an important marketing tool designed to help you grab a recruiter’s attention and make that crucial first impression needed to convince the reader that you should be considered for getting an interview.

Without an effective resume, employers won’t be able to see how you (your strengths, skills, accomplishments, and background) can be an asset to their company or a “perfect fit” for an open position. As a result, many qualified candidates lose tremendous opportunities.

Don’t let that be you!

Resume Tips

  1. Remember that your resume is a marketing tool designed to get you an interview. Therefore, it is important to determine your job objective when writing your resume.
  2. All of your duties and responsibilities obtained during your work experience should not be included in the resume. The purpose of the resume is to highlight your key skill sets, strengths, and accomplishments that directly apply to the position you are targeting.
  3. Resumes should be clear and concise. Majority of business resumes are one page and two pages if an individual has significant (10+ years) work experience. However, senior level managers or executives can exceed this amount. Be sure to use good judgment.
  4. Use action-oriented words in the present (current position) or past tense (previous positions). In addition, do not continue to use the same action words repeatedly throughout the resume.
  5. Ensure the format used (Bullet Style, Paragraph Style, or Combination) is consistent throughout the resume. Also, each completed phrase in a resume should end in a period.
  1. Spell check and proofread your resume before submitting to your potential employer. Misspelled words, typos, and poor grammar are seen as unprofessional and can be costly.
  2. Do not use jargon or acronyms that are not defined in the resume.
  3. Use numbers or amounts to highlight your accomplishments. For example, “Saved company $20,000.”
  4. Ensure that contact information and correct dates are included in your resume. Do not make it difficult for the recruiter. Remember, they only take 10 seconds. Recruiters will move on to the next candidate if they cannot contact you or follow your resume.
  5. Do not include personal information (i.e. marital status) on your resume.
