You may find some resume samples that have bullet points. No employer will have the time (or patience) to read long paragraphs of text. Make sure, therefore, to use bullet points and short sentences to describe your experiences, educational background and professional objectives. One good way to format your resume is by using the keywords that appear in the job description of the position opened. This will definitely increase your chances of getting called in for that interview. By doing so, you have made it easier for hiring managers to do the elimination process.
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.
Dare to Be Unique – You may increase your chance of getting hired and reduce the risk of being rejected. There are new styles that you can use depending on the industry or position you desire. Usually printed in black ink, resumes now come in a variety of colors, formats, and sizes. Ever seen one that is folded like a brochure or leaflet? You might think it wouldn't be possible. But aside from this interesting idea, it is more likely to catch the attention of employers. Folding in leaflet style is usually done by those who are applying in the marketing or advertising industry. If you are applying as a graphic designer, you can present one in comic layout. It's very unique, right? But the important details must still be there. How about as a copywriter? You can make use of a font that looks like it has been typed from a typewriter.
