Resume Writing Tips by SkyHighResumes

Resume Writing Tips by SkyHighResumes (www.skyhighresumes.com)

 

The key to writing a great resume is knowing how to successfully market yourself to a prospective job. Your resume should include relevant job history, education, volunteer experience, and memberships/associations. Use your resume to highlight important work experience and skills. Do not include information regarding marital status, parental status, religious affiliation, photos, age, or weight.

Resume Language
Use action verbs such as “developed,” “managed,” “coordinated,” and “implemented.”
Don’t use “I” to start every sentence.
Do use your own words to explain your experience

 Use spell check!

Resume Information

Keep your name, phone number and address current.
Include dates of employment in a month/year format (example: 05/02 – 08/02).

It is important to emphasize what you have achieved in each major role beyond your key day-to-day responsibilities. Employers are most interested in the impact you have had in your career (e.g., measurable achievements such as financial savings to the company.
Resume Appearance
Use 1” margins on all sides.
Use a standard font size 10-12 that is easy to read. (Arial, Corbel, Times New Roman, Verdana are recommended)
Use bold font and italics to highlight information.

Do not be overly creative with the formatting – it will only distract from the real focus of the document, which is you.

Make sure to leave some white space in between sections.
Don’t label your resume. The title “Resume” is unnecessary.
Your resume can be longer than 1 page. A good rule of thumb is 1 page for each 10 years of work history.
