Match & Map Your Skills To Their Needs, Always match your skills to the needs of the job you are applying for. If their job requires customer service skills, be sure you have that skill and list it on your resume. If you do not have a skill the employer is looking for then try to map the skills you do have to the one they desire. For example, if the employer wants someone experienced in Microsoft Word and you have not used Word then think about what you have used. Maybe you have used Word Perfect or Open Office Writer. If so, be sure to write this down! You can include it like this: Experienced in Open Office Writer (very similar to Microsoft Word). If you follow the good resume samples above, you will do a much better job of showing how qualified you are. Remember, this is the whole point of your resume: to get the employer's attention and show them you are a great fit for their needs. If you do this you should be granted an interview.
You also need to consider the information that you put into your resume, it is not advisable to copy what sounds good in the resume samples you found. Anything you put on that resume should be the truth. You may exaggerate a bit but make sure you can deliver once hiring managers or employers wants proof. We surely don't want to be caught lying about something even before employment and most especially after employment. Do not forget to give complete and updated information in your resume most especially your contact numbers. It is of no use and everything you have worked for will be in vain if the hiring managers are unable to contact you for an interview. This common mistake actually sets off hiring managers when after they have chosen you over a hundred applicants and only ending up unable to contact you. And finally when they are able to get hold of you, always answer in a cordial manner. The phone call is actually the first step in your interview. They may ask a few questions during the phone call so always remember what you have written in your resume and not the ones written in the resume samples you found.
Securing employment is one heck of a challenge, especially if you have no honors or extra curricular activities to boast of. However, these do not measure your capability as a person who is built to survive whatever challenge. Don't let it hinder you and instead, bank on your experiences to take you farther than the rest. With on the job trainings and work experiences on the field under your belt, your potential employers will know for themselves that you have already gotten a taste of the real deal. Thus, they have a lot to probe about you, and you have all the more chances to prove yourself and your worth. This is an advantage for your part, thus you need to be proud of it and not wallow in self pity for not garnering the best grade there is.
