Writing Tips - How to Write a Winning Resume

 


Visitors: 175

Writing a winning resume is your first step towards your dream career.

A well written resume will show your future employers your achievements, skills and how you can make a difference to their company.

The content of your resume is your time to sell yourself. Try to use short sentences and active, dynamic words that show you as a dynamic person.

Research and personlise your resume

Don't be tempted to send the same resume out to all companies, research the company, the role that you want and tailor your resume to reflect what the company is looking for.

Identify and prove your skills

For every skill required of the job demonstrate that you have that skill on your resume. An easy way to do this is to give an example of a time when you used that skill in a previous job. If you don't have experience in your work life examples from your home life can be just as effective.

Show how you make a difference

When talking about past projects or achievements you need to show how you made a difference. Did you lead a project that delivered on time and under budget? If so don't just say it was under budget, say by how much.

Let your personality shine through

While you should write your resume in a formal manner you can still show your personality. Adding a section on ‘personal interests’ will help your future employers think of you as a real person rather than just another resume.

Final thoughts

  • Keep layout clean and simple.
  • Double check spelling and grammar.
  • Double check details for the company and the contact details you are sending your resume to.
