Your resume should be attractive, informative, professional and well organized. Here are some tips for creating a persuasive one.
- Make a list of your accomplishments. Note the remarkable things you have done in your life. Include your education, training, employment and volunteer work – anything that shows the personal and professional achievements.
- Analyze the job description for the required skills. By looking carefully, you will learn what skills employers want and be able to tailor your resume accordingly.
- Highlights skills that are relevant to the occasion. Ninety percent of the people may not identify their skills, and many overlook those they have developed to other jobs. Take a personal inventory of what you can do, and to identify those who would make you an ideal candidate for the position. Look for skills that are transferable for Perfect Profile. If you worked in customer service, sales or management, for example, it is likely that you have skills that are applicable to the jewelry industry.
- Make sure you first put the most important information and the latest information less relevant. Also, highlight information to your advantage. For example, you may have extensive training, but not much work experience. In this case, list your education near the top of your resume. Or, if you have skills or special qualifications, you can enhance them by placing them first.
- Write short, descriptive phrases that describe your professional achievements and responsibilities. Use action verbs whenever possible. Be concise and precise. Make sure verb tenses and punctuation are correct. Then prioritize the items in order of relevance to the work.
- Choose a format for your resume. (See page 8-11, CV for new graduates and recovery with significant work experience.) Background Present, credentials, and expertise to your advantage.
