Resume Tips to Get YOU Noticed

September is #InternationalUpdateYourResumeMonth! Here are some tips and tricks to whip your resume into shape and help you stand out!

  1. Only highlight the last 10-15 years of your work experience. No need to share all the details of that college internship.
  2. Get descriptive with your bullets. How many people were on the project team you managed? By what percentage did you exceed your goals?
  3. Use power words like “achieved, earned, created, launched.”
  4. Have a friend help you proofread. Start at the bottom of the page and read from right to left. You’ll catch more that way!
  5. Use a professional file name and save your resume as a PDF so it doesn’t change format when the hiring manager looks at it with a different version of Word.

If you get stuck, don’t hesitate to call me. I’ve seen it all and know how to write a resume that sticks!
