| No Comments

Now-a-days it is a competitive job-seeking environment. Job seekers needresume to make sure that their resume stands out from the pack. Read over the following “tips and tidbits” to help you stand out from the crowd and to give your resume the competitive edge it needs to land you an interview for your “dream job.”

Presentation is Everything:

When writing a resume it’s important to use a basic font that is easy to read. Try using Times New Roman or Calibri in a size 12 font. You do not want your resume to be “too busy” with different fonts or to be too “wordy”. Before sending it have a close friend or family member read over to double check that it is easy on the eyes and that it is grammatically perfect.

Past Employment:

When writing your resume, be sure you put your experience in chronological order. You always want the most current job first. Also, do not lie about dates of employment. Employers can check and make sure the date you gave them are accurate. Lastly, do not leave off any employment information. Recruiters and employers do not like seeing “gaps” in your employment history.

Contact Information:

It’s important to include all your contact information so employers can easily get in touch with you. This information should be located on the top of your resume. This information should be in a larger font from the rest of the resume to make it stand out.   You should include your full name, street address, city, state, and zip, home phone number, cell phone number, and email address. MAKE SURE YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION IS CORRECT. When you apply for a job you want to make yourself readily available within the weeks that follow. Recruiters will not chase after applicants.

Keywords:

Your resume should include the same keywords that appear in job descriptions. This will increase chances of your resume matching available positions. If you take the time to customize your resume to the job description it will be well worth it.

Recap How to Write a Resume:

Presentation is everything, make sure your resume is easy to read and error-free.

  • Put your past employment in chronological order and do not lie about dates of employment.
  • Make sure your contact information is accurate and is in a place where the employer can see it.
  • Tailor your resume to the job description of desired jobs.

Want to Ace An Employment Interview? Here are a few pointers that may help you land that perfect job.

  • Present the employer with a professional resume.  Be careful of typos!
  • Get to your interview approx. 10 minutes early.  This shows an employer you are timely and should be the same if they hired you.
  • Leave your cell phone at home or in your car.  A ringing or dinging cell phone could blow your chances at getting the job.
  • Dress appropriately.  Wear a suit when you can and/or if applicable (if applying for office work this is applicable).  Appropriate dress does not include low cut shirts, see through shirts, any type of garment with writing on it.
  • Take out earrings that are in places other than your ear.  If you have multiple piercings in your ear, no more than 2 earrings is appropriate.  Do not wear overly large or flashy jewelry.
  • Cover up tattoos that are in areas that the potential employer can see.
  • Shake the potential employers hand when introduced.  A firm handshake is always best.
  • Be prepared.  Know information about the potential employer (Google it) so you will appear knowledgeable in the interview.
  • Come with recommendation letters.
  • Ask questions, but try not to discuss salary-related questions in the first interview.
  • Make eye-to-eye contact when speaking with the potential employer.
  • Do not talk bad about your previous employer even if you left on bad terms.
  • Be sure to send a thank you note or email within a day or two after the interview.

Finally, try to stay calm and don’t show the employer you are nervous.  By following the above key points, you should have success in securing another interview or possibly even an offer!
