How to write nice resume
Your resume needs to be professional and polished because, if not, your application
materials probably won’t get a second glance from any hiring manager.
“A guiding principle of the resume writing profession is that there are no hard and fast
rules.”
An unprofessional resume one that is difficult to read, confusing, covered in errors, or
unrelated to the job the person is applying for will get tossed in the trash right away.
Hiring managers often get dozens, even hundreds, of applicants for each job. An
unprofessional resume makes you look unprofessional as a job seeker and will cost you a
possible interview.
Do and Don’t of Resume
Do’s
 Determine your job search objective prior to writing the
resume and tailor your resume for the position.
 Customize your resume to match a specific job
description. Use buzzwords from the industry.
 Focus on positive results and accomplishments.
 Keep a consistent, easily-readable format.
 Create strong, action-oriented statements about your
work.
 List the most important, relevant items first. For example,
you may decide to move your “Internships” and “Projects”
sections above your “Customer Service Experience”
section
Don’ts
 Use templates and tables included in software.
 Make general claims (“Good communication skills”)
without backing them up with examples.
 Mislead employers about your GPA, skills, or abilities.
 Include long, generic objective statements.
Employers won’t read them!
 Submit references on the same page as your resume.
They should be kept in a separate document and
provided when the employer asks for them.
Do and Don’t of Resume
 Within each section, you must list experiences
in reverse chronological order, starting with
the most recent.
 Qualify and quantify your experiences
whenever possible. Include numbers and
percentages when possible.
 Highlight specific accomplishments rather
than expand on every detail.
 Expand on professional, volunteer, research,
and classroom experiences to show
transferable skills.
 Proofread your work. Ask the Career Center,
friends, and advisors for help.
 Don’t go over two pages. Most
underclassman candidates should have a
one-page resume, but this will depend on
the amount of experience you have.
 Put all your eggs in one basket. Apply to
multiple positions that match your career
interests.
 Choose the reverse-chronological format
when you should have chosen the
combination format.
 Make your resume a nightmare to read by
using weird fonts and headache-inducing
colors. Don’t use cursive fonts, too, or
anything too creative.
How to be job ready
One of the most important, and most misunderstood,
concepts in a successful job search is being job ready. A
major frustration recruiters encounter is countless
applicants who believe that having a decent resume,
being prepared for common interview questions and
showing up in presentable attire are sufficient steps to
demonstrating they are qualified for the job. These steps
should be a given when you are looking for a job.In
today’s competitive job market, you’ll need to
demonstrate that you are a candidate who can offer
more and who is far superior to the status quo.The
following tips for becoming job ready will help you to
soar above your competition and show potential
employers that you are a superior candidate.
Tips for becoming job ready
1) Study Each Company Who Interviews You:-
Job seekers often underestimate the importance of knowing about a company before showing
up for the interview. Ideally, it would actually be best to do your research on each organization
prior to even applying in order to determine if it offers a philosophy and work environment that
is a good fit for you. However, you definitely want to understand some aspects about the
employer before meeting with them. Obtaining a general idea of such things as the employee
retention rates, business structure, core values, its history and its reputation within the industry
will give you an edge when it comes to sharing ideas that might work to improve some aspect
of their business. Such knowledge can also help you to provide insight as to how your strongest
skills can best be utilized within their existing structure. This kind of insight will impress any
interviewer. It also allows you to see whether each company you apply to offers the potential for
a long-term relationship.
Tips for becoming job ready
2) Know Your Specific Role Within the Company:-
Many workers today have a very narrow understanding of their specific position within
their organization, even after being on the job for awhile. It makes sense that you may be
unclear as to particular job duties when applying for a new gig, but you really should have
a general idea of the most important facets of the role. For instance, understanding the
hierarchy within the organization can inform you the channels of command above you and
the kind of potential there may be for advancement. You can likely find this information
and more on the company website or through a search on LinkedIn. It’s also your
responsibility as a prepared applicant to express confidence in your qualifications for the
job. Understanding the role will give you the foundation you need to convince interviewers
you have the needed skills.
Tips for becoming job ready
3) Possess Industry Insight:-
Hopefully, you have already gotten a start on researching your field and knowing such
information as the key players, newest developments, guiding theories and best
practices. If you haven’t, it’s not too late. Do an internet search of companies within
your industries and read up on what they are promoting. Peruse relevant blogs and
trade magazines or academic journals to discover what innovations are developing.
Connect with colleagues on social media in order to get your name out there. Doing so
may be able to gain you access to non-advertised jobs and can definitely give you an
edge when it comes to impressing interviewers with your knowledge.
Tips for becoming job ready
4) Know Yourself:-
The ever-popular interview question about your greatest weakness isn’t just fluff. It’s
truly imperative that you understand your shortcomings so that you can improve
upon them. It’s also essential that you understand and are able to succinctly
communicate the skills you possess that are most sought-after and pertinent to the
job at hand. Clear communication and confidence are keys to selling yourself.
Tips for becoming job ready
5) Understand the Labor Market:-
Not only should you know your industry inside and out, you also want to understand the hiring
practices within it. Take some time to study the kinds of positions that are out there related to
what you do. Ask the contacts you’re forming within your network what things are like within
their organizations. Understanding the labor market will give you a picture of the possibilities
that exist for you and what steps you need to take in order to reach the next level. For example,
your networking and research might present you with information regarding your ultimate
dream job. You can then find out whether you’ll need to pursue further higher education to
obtain it or the kinds of upward progression that are necessary to get there. You’ll be absolutely
prepared to tell interviewers where you plan to be in five years.
