How to write a resume that doesn’t suck
When it comes to job applications and resumes, a lot of us are stuck between choosing the perfect one and doing a good job.
And sometimes the perfect resume is a little too perfect.
So, what do you do?
First, find the right job for you.
“The only way to make sure that you have a resume you can put out there is to read the jobs you’re applying for and then pick the job that fits you best,” said Jessica Blatt, a resume consultant and founder of the CareerBuilder firm.
The goal of your resume should be to highlight the skills you have that can be used in the job you’re looking for.
But what about the one that looks a little bit too perfect?
“The resume should have a few of the skills that you’re good at,” Blatt said.
“But also show that you are able to handle different roles.”
The first thing you should do is go to a resume designer, who will help you select the perfect job for your career.
“Once you have your resume done, there are many different ways you can look at it, and I’d recommend that you go to an interview,” Blat said.
When it’s time to submit your resume, it should include at least five or six references.
But don’t be afraid to take advantage of LinkedIn, which lets you add more than 150 job references for each of your job listings.
If you’re not sure which job references you should use, check out these recommendations.
If your resume is too long, Blatt recommends choosing a smaller font size.
But Blatt also said that you should make sure your resume looks professional.
“You need to have the resume look professional, and that’s what I mean by professional,” she said.
Here are some tips for choosing the best resume for your job: Be creative.
Blatt advises you to be creative in your resume.
“One of the best things I do for the job application process is I write my own resume, which I call my personal resume,” she explained.
“So, it’s an independent resume that I write on my own and it looks great, and it’s very short.”
Make it short.
Blat also says that a good resume should cover as many pages as possible.
“I don’t want it to be so long that you can’t see it all,” she added.
“It should be like the opening paragraph of a book.
It should say something like, ‘I’m a resume writer with a passion for learning.'”
Keep it short, too.
She also says to avoid writing a resume with too many pages.
“That’s one of the things that I always try to avoid,” Blt said.
Blott recommends choosing at least 30-60-second resumes, and she also recommends keeping your resume short, so you don’t look like a robot.
“When you’re doing a job interview, you want to be looking professional, so I’d encourage you to avoid a lot [of] the repetition,” Bltt said.
Keep your eyes on the prize.
Blatto recommends making sure you focus on what you’re going to do, not just what your name says on your resume as a resume.
So for example, if you’re a business owner, you should keep your resume focused on what your career would look like if you were to become a full-time business owner.
“If you’re talking about being a business leader, you need to make it very clear that you do have the skills, but you also need to demonstrate your ability to do a lot,” Blatto said.
She said it’s important to keep your resumes short and simple.
“In addition to being short, it also helps to have a very clear title that describes your role,” Blott said.
Make it memorable.
Blatti also said to write about a specific topic.
“Make it a topic you’re passionate about and you want your resume to reflect that,” Blatti said.
And make sure to include your personal website, if possible.
Make sure you write it well.
“And if you don, it might not be clear what you have to say,” Blato said.
So when it comes time to apply for a job, Blatto says to go for it.
“Take the time to write the perfect résumé,” Blotts said.
It could be a great way to show that, for example: You’re a self-starter.
You want to change the world.
You care about your work.
And you’re confident.
Blitt said it may take a little while for you to find the perfect match.
“After you have found a match, you’ll find that you need some time to get to know each other,” she continued.
“As you work with the candidate, you can build up the rapport, and eventually they’ll become a good fit for your role.”
And if that doesn’
