    Default How to Write a Resume

    When you are searching for a job, the one thing that can distinguish you is a quality resume. Writing a quality resume is the critical first step to getting in the door of a company and landing the job. Follow the steps below to write a good resume.



    Step 1

    At the beginning of your resume at the top of the page, center your full name in big type-face, and be sure to include your contact information underneath.

    Step 2

    Then, make a section entitled "Education" and list your educational background, which can include any graduate degrees, college degrees, and/or high school education. You should list your GPA, activities and highlights of things you participated in or accomplished in your education.

    Step 3

    Next, make a section called "Employment" and list your prior work or employment. Be sure to include job titles and also describe briefly the duties you had in your positions. You can also describe any achievements or successes from your prior work experience.

    Step 4

    In addition, depending upon your industry and the type of job you are looking for, you may want to make a section called "Special Skills." Another option is to list some more personal information that is unique to you so that you stand out - such as your hobbies or interests.

    Step 1
    Provide all your contact details in your resume. How is your future employer to find you if you do not have any of that information?
    Include: Telephone number, address, email.


    Make sure this is always up to date.


    Step 2
    Company names with clear dates and absolutely no gaps. If you took some time off, explain what it was, but do not leave any dates missing. It goes against you having gaps in your resume.


    Step 3
    Keep it short and simple! Maximum 2 pages. Recruiters do not have much time for reading resumes. Keep only the important information and leave the rest for the interview. Put one line job descriptions for work that is over 10 years old.


    Step 4
    This is the one place where you can include acronyms. The manager reading your resume will know exactly what they mean, and it keeps things easy. Many hiring managers actually scan your resume for these acronyms, so make their jobs easier.


    Step 5
    Always include hobbies and interests at the bottom of your resume. Employers want to know what else besides work you find interesting. Do you play an instrument? Practice a sport? Are you part of a charity? These will help the employer see you as more dynamic, rather than just another applicant.


    Step 6
    Include your skills at the bottom of your resume as well. Do you speak any foreign languages? Do you use any specific computer software? How proficient are you in those?

    Default How to Write a Job-Getting Resume

    Step 1) Getting a job these days is a difficult endeavor so you need to write a great resume to land a job interview. The first step in resume writing is making an EYE-CATCHING HEADER. Use a different font than most people use. In your header to your resume should be the following: Name, Address, phone number, and email address.


    Step 2) The second step in writing a job-getting resume is to have a clearly-defined OBJECTIVE section. The objective of each resume should be tailored to the job for which you are applying. For example, if you are applying for a sales manager position, your resume objective section should say something like "to use my experience in sales for the sales manager position at the widget company".


    Step 3) The third step in resume writing is the WORK EXPERIENCE SECTION. This is the most crucial section of the resume. List the company(s) you previously worked for, the dates you worked for them, your position, and the features as well as BENEFITS of your tenure there. In resume writing, it's pivotal to sell BENEFITS not features.


    Step 4) The fourth step in writing your resume is the EDUCATION section. List where you graduated from college, your major, your minor, and any awards or distinctions you had from there.


    Step 5) Decide whether you want to add an ADDITIONAL INFORMATION section to your resume. If you're a new graduate with limited work experience, an extracurricular activities might be perfect for you.

    Step 6) Remember to keep your resume to approximately 1 page in length. Anything over 1 page in length will annoy the employer.


    Step 7) Remember to proofread your resume and provide REFERENCES at the bottom. Do not write "References available upon request!" at the bottom of your resume--employers hate that.


    Step 8) I hope this has been a helpful guide on resume writing. Look over the internet to find a plethora of resume examples and sample resumes. Good luck!
