Resume Writing Tips

Bullet, Bullet, Bullet. Keep is simple stupid. You start rattling on like you are a story teller and the reader on the other end get bored really fast, assumes you are a know it all an tosses it into file 13 which is as we Administrative types know is the garbage can. List what is important, your experience, your computer knowledge, heck even your typing speed. If you are applying for a position that specifically details what they are looking for; then customize your resume accordingly and match your talents with thier needs on paper. Sell your self, don't over sell it, because these days there are too many people out of work and not enough jobs and the competition is fierce. You cannot make the mistake of being too proud or not proud enough to prove you are an eligible candidate for interview.

Don't Forget to Proof

Don't forget to proofread your resume. Typos and grammatical errors can get your resume right into the reject pile.
