Resume Writing

Resume Writing Preparation

What can you do to distinguish yourself from the crowd and win in the job-search game? To a large extent, it is your ability to market yourself and to present your qualifications, experience and achievements in a manner that is sharp, focused and aggressive. The first step in starting the job-hunting process is creating a RESUME.

Whether you are a candidate for the position of general manager, marketing manager, or trainee, your resume must highlight your skills, accomplishments and work experience in a way that distinguishes you from hundreds of other candidates flooding companies’ mailboxes. A good resume grabs the reader’s attention and increases your chances of being called for an interview.

Potential employers use the resume to make an initial assessment of your skills, which can possibly lead to an interview. Consider your resume to be your sales tool. This one sheet of paper needs to convince the employer that you, out of all the candidates, deserve a job interview. Along with the content, the appearance of your resume should be neat and professional.
