Your Resume - An Overview


Your Resume - An OverviewYour resume has only one purpose:to get you an interview.

Your resume must describe why you are valuable to a prospective employer. If you're invited to an interview - your resume has effectively done its job. The rest is up to you.


For a resume to be an effective marketing tool, there are a couple of things you'll have to keep in mind. The first thing to remember is that resumes are used to determine suitability for a position. In order to make that assessment, the HR person must have complete and relevant information. Highlight your core skills, education and experience. If there is additional pertinent information, you should include it in your resume.


The second thing you'll need to keep in mind is that the appearance of your resume counts. Clear communication and writing skills are essential. A well-formatted resume, with relative and complete information acts as your surrogate "first impression." You might be the most qualified candidate out there, but if your resume is a muddled mess - well, it's easy to see what message you'll be sending!


When you're preparing your resume, make sure to proofread it. Spelling and grammar errors are usually noticed by employers at the expense of otherwise good information. Don't rely on your spell-checker - proof read your resume word-for-word before submitting it to the prospective employer. Don't forget that "attention to detail" (as evidenced by accurate spelling and correct grammar) counts as much on resumes, and emails, as it does in formal written submissions.


Last of all, remember: resumes don't get jobs, people get jobs. All you need to do is put your resume to work for you attracting the kind of attention that will get you that interview. After that, the rest is up to you.
