By On Apr 23, 2018 Resume Format
Let me begin by stating there is no one correct resume format. We have included one sample resume for reference purposes, but you can take the ideas and concepts presented here and adapt them to meet your own personal needs. You may even choose to compose more than one resume to optimally present your qualifications for employment for different types of positions. Resumes are created to reflect your job history and your own personal style. That’s right, your style, your thoughts and your accomplishments should come alive through the words, format and finishing touches your resume conveys. Your resume must be easy to scan and interesting to read. The challenge to you is to create a resume that contains enough enticing tidbits to achieve the goal of obtaining you an interview.
In our culture people read from the top down and from left to right. So because the purpose of your resume is to be read, always keep this fact in mind as you write. For example, do not utilize valuable left margin space for dates, move dates to the right margin and use the left for information which will enhance your candidacy. Follow this theme throughout. Start by presenting the area which demonstrates your strongest qualifications. If your strength is your experience, or education or credentials or even volunteer experience; whatever, lead with it and proceed with the top to bottom concept. If your job title is more impressive than the company, list it first. Similarly, if your college is more impressive than the degree, then list it first.
Sometimes, but rarely, an objective can be beneficial when applying for a certain position. By creating a targeted objective you can zero-in on one opportunity. But even then I would caution that this can be a self-limiting exercise. Because if the position has already been filled your specific objective may eliminate you from consideration for other opportunities which may exist and you are not aware of. Our advice is to stay away from an "objective statement."
