You may think that your resume looks good at this point. Unfortunately, that is what a hundred candidates are thinking of as well. They all have well organized resumes. So what will make yours stand out? Your attention to small details could be the key to success. Number your pages and place footnotes to clarify anything that may appear vague. If you have many pages of content, be sure to include a table of content, as well as an executive summary. You must always remember that HR personnel has to spend hours to scan through thousands of resumes. Your goal is to make their job easier by sending in a clear and concise piece of writing.
Copy and pasting the same job description for each company you have worked for is not helping your cause either. Yes, you may have very similar functions from one position to the next, but the point of the resume is to showcase the best of your work and your ability. Remember, you want to get attention with your resume, not blend in with all the rest!
Something to this tune should more than suffice. For this particular example, we'll use someone coming from social media to an oil and gas related company:
*Chronological This is the most commonly used type of resume. Because its arranged by time, a chronological resume is the easiest to organize and write. Its also the easiest to read (which is another plus in the sales and marketing process!) The Chronological Resume is the standard, tried and true resume format, which I recommend to 95% of my clients. Why? Because it works! A chronological resume is the right choice when you are continuing in the same occupation and/or industry; when your career shows a clear pattern of increasing levels of responsibility; and when your employment history has no significant gaps. Dangers: Any gaps in your work history will stand out like a sore thumb. Limited work experience can also be very apparent. And if past jobs dont tie-in directly to the type of positions youre seeking now, or if youre changing careers completely, it may be tougher to sell your capabilities to a new employer using the Chronological Resume.
