A well-crafted resume is the foundation of a successful job search. It is through your resume, after all, that you make your first impression with a prospective employer. And if it is a good first impression (and if you are a fit for the job), chances are good that you will be called in for an interview. So what makes for a good resume? The answer to that question may vary based on your particular career situation. But in general, effective resumes are succinct and easy to skim. The should include a professional summary that highlights your skills at top, followed by sections that touch on work experience, relevant skills and education.
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.
Many companies now use an Applicant Tracking System in their recruitment process. Some of these systems cannot read graphics, tables, symbols, or charts. If you want to ensure that an ATS does not lose information in your resume, then plain text format is the safest choice. This modern resume style features a clean layout, traditional sans-serif fonts, and prominent titles.
