Authors provide a basic outline for a well-written and concise resume. They recommend including a description of a person’s honors, skills and activities, as well as matching your skills to the employer’s needs. By highlighting the skills that you already have that coincide with the employer’s needs, you will automatically allow yourself a better chance at obtaining the job in question.

But Author suggest you that you should confident about what you have going to write on your resume. dont write anything fake, because it will creat a difficuties on your job later.

1. Keep it short. Don’t write your life story; keep your cover letter short and to the point, making sure it’s no longer than one page. The object here is to present a quick introduction to who you are and what you can provide to the company you’re applying to.

 

2. Highlight your attributes. Introduce yourself, followed by some of your skills. Again, just a quick synopsis of why you’d be a good fit for the job.

 

3. Do your research. A cover letter should be custom tailored for the job you are applying for. Research the company and job description in depth so you and the employer start off on the same page.

 

4. Start a conversation. Present the letter in an informal way, as if you’re conversing with the powers-that-be. Be open, friendly, and funny, and you’re bound to get some attention and stand out from the rest of the applicants.

5. Exclude any details. Save salary details, work experience, and references for your resume and interview. The cover letter is just a means for you to say “Hi” and grab their attention so they’ll take a closer look at your resumw.

[mantra-button-dark url=”#”]Objective[/mantra-button-dark]

11. Focus. Employers don’t have time to read through each resume. Keep the objective’s focus on the needs of the employer, because ultimately they’re looking for someone to fulfill those needs.

 

12. Leave out general expectations. Many resumes discuss the prospect’s obvious intentions, like “furthering their career”, “expanding their horizons”, or making more money. These are all a given; don’t insult the employers intelligence. Take the focus off of you and leave your general intentions out.

 

13. Summarize your skills.

14. Use professional goals.

15. Choice of words.

[mantra-button-dark url=”#”]Achievements[/mantra-button-dark]

17. Use numbers and statistics.

18. Stand Out.

19. Be self-aware.

20. Don’t Lie. This point cannot be stressed enough. While it may seem okay to let a white lie slip in here and there, it’s only going to hurt you in the long run. Nothing is more embarrassing than being called out in an interview (or after you started the job) on a subject you really aren’t an expert in. Don’t embellish on the truth and you can expect the same from your employer. Karma, baby, karma.

 21. Focus on the job, not on the dates. 

22. Highlight your most recent work experience.

23. Include enough information.

24. Use your real job title.

25. Don’t include salary information.

[mantra-button-dark url=”#”]Education[/mantra-button-dark]

26. Always include it.

27. Include the school’s information silly.

30. Show relevance where applicable.

[mantra-button-dark url=”#”]Grammar & Editing[/mantra-button-dark]

31. Misspelled word or using wrong grammar.

 32. Structure the document. Use bold, italics, or underlines to break up each section

33. Use bullets.

34. You have to use action words.

35. Clear and Concise. 

[mantra-button-dark url=”#”] Omissions[/mantra-button-dark]

 36. Age. Your age is really not a factor, unless you’re way underage; then you shouldn’t be applying for the job to begin with. Unfortunately, people still discriminate (in their minds anyway) based on age. Don’t give them the opportunity.

37. Marital Status. Marital status has nothing to do with the job you are applying for, so leave it out. Employers are looking for competence and skills, not personal things.

 

38. Anything irrelevant.

 39. Hobbies. Again, unless they relate to the job, you’ll be better off without listing your hobbies. You might think that collecting Star Wars action figures provides you with a good eye for detail, but your employer will just think you’re nuts.

 40. “Available Upon Request.” Don’t make the employer work; that’s your job. Refrain from providing information “at request.” Everything the employer needs to know should be featured in the resume.

 [mantra-button-dark url=”#”]Design & Style[/mantra-button-dark]

 41. Be Creative.

 42. Header/Footer.

 

43. Fonts. Keep the crazy fonts for the header (and they shouldn’t be too crazy!). .

 44. Colors. As with the rest of your design, it wouldn’t hurt to add a little color to your resume. Notice I said a little (same for the paper.) Keep the rainbows at home; you don’t want to seem childish and not serious.

 45. Paper. Use laser printing.

[mantra-button-dark url=”#”] References[/mantra-button-dark]

 46. Separate your references. You’ll want to include your references on another piece of paper,

 47. Don’t include personal ones. Many people immediately list personal references: friends, family, or ex-coworkers. It’s not really a good idea to list those who weren’t an authority figure. Employers want to talk to people who know your work habits from an objective point of view, not some buddy who’s obviously going to say how awesome you are.

 48. Make sure they’ll vouch for you. When using references, make sure to list those who you had a good working relationship with.

 49. Provide up-to-date contact information.
