Creating a Good Resume to Blow Away the Competition

Before you start creating a good resume, make sure you understand what the job description is asking for. A resume which is not tailored to the employers needs will more often that not get binned. Remember, most hiring managers spend only 20 to 30 seconds scanning your resume before deciding whether it contains enough quality information for them to continue reading.

There is a degree of planning in creating a good resume if you want it to hit the mark with the hiring manager. Make sure you spend time researching the job you are applying for. Each job description will have in it what the employer expects. Think about your skills and attributes together with accomplishments and achievements, then write the most relevant down.

Now match your list to the job description and see if there is a good comparison. If you do fit then it’s time to begin creating a good resume! Do not use a standard resume to apply for specific positions. Hiring managers don’t like this and will filter your resume out of the pile very quickly. It is worth realizing that on average only one resume out of 100 actually gets an interview.

Do not try to cut corners as it will cost you time and wasted effort in the long run. Before you start creating a good resume you will need to have a list of all the relevant information at hand. Make sure you have all your college qualifications, previous employment details, including dates and job titles, and a powerful list of accomplishments/achievements written out as bullet points.

Start with an objective if you are new to the work place and briefly explain why you are the person for the advertised job. If you are a seasoned professional with a reasonable amount of work experience, write a summary using the bullet points to feature your skills and accomplishments, etc. It’s best to have about half a dozen written down on your resume.

Your resume has one purpose and that is to get you an interview. Write is a style that allows you to do this and sell yourself.

Now it’s time to add to those accomplishments you put in the summary. Sell those skills and achievements to the hiring manager. Put as much relevant detail in, making sure you write concisely and to the point. Finally you will need to qualify the above using evidence from previous work. This will include previous employer information and a summary of the duties and responsibilities you’ve had.

Also you will need to add your education details, awards etc next. The last item will be references. Don’t add them to your resume, just type ‘available on request.’

Creating a good resume is time consuming and I believe one page is enough for most applications. Make sure it is well set out, error free and concise.
