Tip #5 - Use Keywords and Action Words - Often people fall into a rut when writing a resume and use bland and general terms. If you want to get attention, you need to use keywords and action words throughout your resume. You can identify keywords to use by looking at the job advertisement and the job description. Take the terms used and try to incorporate them through your resume to show that you are qualified for the job. Also be sure to use action words as well throughout your resume to give it a powerful feel.
Work experience does not have to be solely with a large company or formal program. Volunteer work may be commonly associated with philanthropy or humanitarianism, but there is no reason it cannot benefit your career at the same time. By conducting non-profit work that is either closely associated with your education or the career you are focused on getting into, you can gain real world experience while helping others. A lot of companies encourage their employees to spend time volunteering throughout the year. This can be a valuable time for you to network with professionals while giving back, and show how and why you would be a good fit for their corporation.
In today's competitive world, any resume has to go through tremendous competition. If the job position is of a teacher, the competition almost doubles. Thus, if you want your teacher resume to stand out, you must incorporate a few buzz words relevant to the teaching field.
*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.
