Feb

On average, an employer spends 20 seconds reviewing a resume. This is a very small window to make a positive impression.

The following tips, which are quite easy to implement, can be considered to improve your resume and get an interview:  

  • Develop a mutually-beneficial objective.
  • Include bullet points to make your resume easy to read.
  • Incorporate action words and quantify your accomplishments, whenever possible.
  • Limit your resume to 1-2 pages.
  • Be uniform and consistent in the use of italics, capital letters, bullets, boldface, and underlining.
  • Target your resume to the job in which you are applying. Review the job description and revise accordingly.
  • Avoid using terms that are specific to past jobs or companies that not everyone will understand.
  • List your experiences (with recent experiences first) before your educational background, unless you are a recent college graduate.
