If you’ve just finished school, want to get another job or transition into another career, then you will need to work on your resume. Unfortunately, when it comes to getting a good job, there will always be tens and even hundreds of applicants. As a result, it is essential that you make your resume stand out from the rest. So, in this article, we will look at how you can do just that.
First of all, if your resume is several pages long, then you need to cut it down significantly. Your resume should only be one or two pages long, which means that you should summarize it or only include information that is highly relevant to the job or company you’re applying to. More is not better and the easier that you can make the job of the recruiter or hiring manager, the higher chance you have of being selected for an interview.
Next, another good idea is to go the unconventional route for delivering your resume, depending on the job. For example, if you’re trying to get a job at a technology based company or a web design company, then you can create a website resume or do a video based resume. Many people have implemented these strategies successfully since it makes them stand out from the crowd. In most cases, it will at least get you an interview, where you have a higher chance of getting the job.
Lastly, if you’re not confident enough to write your own resume then you can consider hiring a resume writer. There are many companies and individuals that offer this service, so be sure to do a thorough Google search to find the best one.
In closing, we have just looked at a few tips that will help you to improve your resume and make it stand out. Be sure to implement at least one of the above and you will certainly improve your odds.
