Quick Resume Tips
Make sure to proof read – When crafting your resume you need to be sure to avoid spelling/grammar errors. These errors give the impression of carelessness and laziness which is not the idea that you want to give to a potential employer. A good tip is to have someone else proof read your resume for you so that they can point out any mistakes you may have overlooked.
Quality over quantity – With resume building you are better off having a shorter, but very concise, resume that is well written and free of any spelling errors. This gives the employer an easy to read document that they can use to quickly see important information about you.
Don’t lie – It may seem like lying on your resume will get you further in the job market, but employers check resumes for lies very often. Even if it doesn’t get caught sending an untrue resume will be a black mark against your name with future employers.
Customize – Make sure your resume is customized to each job you are applying for this shows the employer that not only do you want the job, but also that you have taken time to show them how capable you are at performing the tasks that may be specific to that particular job.
Avoid non essential information – Exclude personal information such as your weight, height, marriage status etc. Your resume should focus on being to the point so as to avoid being too long, so stay focused on the important points.
Sign it – Do sign your resume to show the employer that you are serious about this position, and that you want to take on any challenges that may come with it.
Format for readability– Make sure that the formatting of your resume is clean and easy to navigate so as not to discourage the employer from reading it further.
