By On Apr 27, 2018 Resume Format
There are numerous ways to accomplish the goal of resume brevity and still optimally reflect the depth of your qualifications for an opportunity. Allow us to walk you through a resume line by line, section by section. Remember, every word, every line contributes to the length and to your résumé’s purpose.
How long should your Resume be? The "acceptable" length of a resume often creates a fair amount of discussion. Must my resume be only one page? Are three or even four pages too much? Again, a common sense approach should prevail. In most cases, a one-page resume is preferred, unless your qualifications are extensive. The more focused your document is, the more likely it will be read. Strive to never exceed 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 pages. Remember your resume should not read like a job description. You do not need to recreate your entire past history. A resume should stress your qualifications, skills, and achievements instead of your duties and responsibilities.
Center your name and contact information at the top of the pageand include any credentials or degrees you may possess. For some reason, which I do not understand, the majority of resumes make you search throughout to determine education and credentials i.e. Perry E. Ellie, MA, RHIA, Fellow AHIMA. Why conceal this information? If you have these types of credentials, use them. If you don’t, or if they are less than ideal for the position you are applying, leave this information for your education section later in the resume. For the vast majority of candidates it is preferable to list your education and credentials up front. Utilize Word to highlight or draw attention to this and other key information in a way to match your own personal style.
