Polishing Your Resume
Posted on 06/08/2015
Are you a new college graduate or just looking to change up your career? Then it must be time to dust off that resume and polish it up. You resume is your first impression and the first way to get your foot in the door at a company you’ll love. Job seekers must be unique to stand out from the crowd. Here are a few quick tips to make your resume the best:
Tailor it—When applying for a new position, look at the job description and then, carefully, tailor your resume to that job. Look for similar keywords to use and skills you should highlight. Be careful to not lie on your resume; honesty is the best policy.
Digitalize it—Let’s face it, most jobs require the applicant to have an online presence. Take it a step further and create a website highlighting your best work and your quirky personality. You’ll stand out from other applicants with a showcasing website.
Proofread it—The biggest takeaway is to always proofread your application, your resume and your website before sending it to a company. If there’s a major grammar or spelling mistake, you probably won’t be called for an interview. Take your time and reread everything.
