4 Tips to Writing a Better Resume

Writing a resume can sometimes be quite the task. Although you know better than anyone else what your experience is and accomplishments are–you still might find the task daunting especially when you are on a tight deadline in looking for a job. Here are some tips you can use when writing your resume.

1.A strong professional summary

Think of it as a strong mini intro to your resume. Be sure to keep it to 2 or 3 sentences and encompasses your professional career in a burst.

2.Using the Role Overview/Accomplishment dynamic

When writing your resume try using this dynamic! Describe your role and your responsibilities followed by what you have accomplished–use these headings. This will give a clean look and draw the hiring manager to key info on your resume.

3.Short & punchy lines

You don’t have too much room on your resume so use your space wisely. Don’t use long, winding sentences. Try short and punchy lines that get to your results and accomplishments quickly.

4.Keeping it at 2 pages

Your resume shouldn’t be longer than 2 pages (unless you are an academic, doctor or lawyer.) Use a neat and simple format as well that utilizes your information within the 2 pages.
