Revamp Your Resume

By December 6, 2013

Follow me on:

Resume WritingThis is a good time of year, and you should do it at least annually, to check and revamp your resume.

It's important to take the time to write a resume that reflects why you're a top tier candidate who should be selected for an interview. That means your position descriptions should be as quantified as possible - numbers, percentages, achievements - concrete evidence of what you have accomplished.

In addition to having a well-written resume, you need to make sure that your resume looks good. Resumes with bad formatting or typos are often rejected, regardless of how qualified the candidate might be. So, take the time to give your resume a check-up, then ask someone else to look at it for you. Another pair of eyes can see things you've missed and can give you some ideas on how to up your resume a notch or two.

Review these top resume tips for choosing a type of resume, selecting a resume font, customizing your resume, using resume keywords, explaining employment gaps, reviewing resume examples, and more tips for writing interview winning resumes.
