Building a good resume is not an easy task. It requires a lot of thought and effort and for some candidates, a professional resume service. Different styles of writing and formatting have come and gone, but here are some helpful tips to help you with your resume writing. Even a resume that’s really good can’t guarantee you a job, but it can get you in the door.
Give specifics. Employers need to understand what you’ve done and accomplished. For example, you can write something like this when listing down your past responsibilities: “Recruited, hired, trained and supervised more than 40 employees in a restaurant with $1 million in annual sales” The details you presented here will most likely grab the attention of your potential employer.
Highlight your duties and accomplishments. It’s easy to slip into a mode where you just blindly write down job duties in your resume. Employers don’t care too much of what you’ve done, but they will look for what you accomplished. Think of times where your work managed to solve an ongoing problem in the company.
Lastly, limit your resume to two pages. Especially if you have a lot of work experience behind you. Don't cut the meat out of your resume simply to make it conform to an arbitrary one-page standard.
