By On Dec 26, 2017 Resume
Do not let your resume go on longer than one page. If you take a look at a few different resume samples – you will see that all of them are typically one page or less. Take out anything that your employers wont really care about, like how you volunteer for your daughters Girl Scout troupe. Only include volunteer activities if they are relevant to the type of work you do.
A prospective employer does not need an exhaustive list of everything you have done in a previous job. When describing your duties at a previous job, highlight your accomplishments and, whenever you are able to, quantify them with hard numbers on your job resume. It is all good and well that you led a team of six salespeople, but it is a lot more powerful to say that sales for your team increased 50 percent under your leadership.
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.
