Proofreading seems like a given, but hiring managers still receive plenty of resumes with embarrassing typos and other errors. Do not just dash off your resume and send it. Once you are finished, step away from it for at least a few minutes and then come back and give it a thorough read for mistakes. Better yet – have someone else take a look. Fresh eyes are more likely to find errors.
Your resume is much more than a compilation of your work history; it is a tool that lets hiring managers know that you are the candidate they have been hoping for. Recruiters and hiring managers have seen every type of resume format imaginable. For maximum wow-factor, you must build a resume that highlights your industry-specific experience, accomplishments, and credentials, as well as important skills.
Resumes and cover letters go hand in hand. In fact, it is the job of a cover letter to get an employer interested enough in you as a candidate to take the time to look at your resume. Your cover letter should focus on just a few skills and accomplishments that are the most relevant to your target job. It should be succinct, include easy to scan bullet points to call out information and should always be customized to the specific job posting you are responding to.
