Employment Advice - Writing Your Own Resume

It is always wise for all job seekers that if they plan on looking for a job that they have a resume that is going to express who they and what their skills are without overdoing it. A lot of people turn to professionals to compile their resumes but if you sit down and take the time you should be able to come up with your own professional resume without having to pay someone else to do it for you.

One of the most important things that a resume should do is sell your strengths to a prospective employer. So the goal of your resume should be to actually make the employer want to interview you. This is a tool that should promote who you are, what you would like to do and how much value you believe you can bring to their company.

The smallest mistake will get your resume tossed in the trash can. That means any missing skills, spelling errors, formatting errors could disqualify your resume. It only takes about ten seconds of viewing for some employers to reject a resume.

What an employer is looking for from job seekers are people who have definite ideas about who they are and what they are best at doing. They want to know what value can you offer and what it is that makes you valuable. Your resume must show evidence of just that.

Your resume must be created to fit a specific job or career, it needs to fit your specific background as well as all of your professional and personal goals. Always keep this in mind.

When you first start your resume don't start off being concerned about the format. You first should work on your content and the composition of it. Once you have done that you can then highlight all of your career goals and strengths.

Make sure to use active as well as positive language which is often short, to the point and has succinct phrases contained within it. It is always a good idea to make sure that the terminology that you use is something the employer will be able to understand as they are scanning the resume. It is important that your resume reflects your skills but also that it reflects your personality a long with your strengths.

It is important that you make your resume personalized. This helps let the employer see who you are and your uniqueness. What you pick to include on your resume needs to paint the whole picture of who you are and it should help the employer figure out what kinds of questions to ask you.

Be specific and always emphasize exactly what you can do for the employer and their company. Make sure that your resume is customized for each individual employer that you take it to. Don't use the exact same resume for different employers. Always make sure it's relevant to that particular job.

Make sure that your resume is consistent through the entire resume and that the if you used caps for one job title continue to do so on the entire resume. Include your education, your achievements and only your most relevant skills pertaining to the job you are applying for.

It is important to remember that all employers use a resume for eliminating candidates, matching your qualifications for their needs, creating interview questions, judging how well you communicate, guiding the process of your interview, it will remind them of you when they make their decision to hire someone, it will be used to compare you to others and it will help them justify why they made the decision.
