What To Say in Your Resume
Put more than one way for a recruiter to contact you. Common choices are your email and cell phone number.
Keep your email professional. If yours is silly or inappropriate, try to get one that is close to your name or profession.
Double-check that everything is accurate. If no one can reach you, then you can't get an interview.
Either state your purpose, with an objective statement, or write a bit about yourself in a summary statement.
An objective statement works best when you are changing careers, have no work history related to the job you are applying for, or if you are an entry-level employee. Focus on what you can do for the company. Talking about what you want from the company makes you seem like less of an asset.
Most jobseekers with relatable skills, experience and accomplishments will use a job summary statement. This is the place to mention a few of your skills and qualifications. Don't overdo it because your resume should fill in any gaps. Keep this summary short and professional.
Search the job description for keywords. Use these in your skills section if they apply to you.
Keep each entry between one and three words. While you may be "very organized in all things," it's enough to say you are "organized."
Aim for five to eight bullet points. Too short and you look underqualified, too long and a recruiter might skip most of them.
Start with your most recent or current job. For a current job, use present tense when describing your work activities.
Use a mix of common and uncommon work activities. Each job you list should feel different, even if all the job titles are the same.
Include metrics whenever possible. Instead of saying you boosted sales, use a percentage to say by how much.
If you are still working on a degree, list it here. Put in your expected graduation date to show how far along you are.
Only include your high school diploma if you don't have a college degree.
