By On Jan 05, 2018 Resume
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.
Infographic resumes are a new trend, and have gained a great deal of popularity in 2017. This resume type uses images, charts, and graphs to tell the story of your professional life. Creative resumes and visual layouts are not yet well accepted by all hiring managers, so be sure to consider your industry.
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.
