Step 1 to getting your dream job is writing your dream resume.
Remember that first impressions count, and your resume is the first impression you are going to make on the employer.
It is statistically shown that employees spend less than 8 seconds scanning resumes before throwing them in the discard pile, so make sure your resume stands out.
When writing your resume, you need to be CLEAR and CONCISE.
It’s important you include:
- Contact Information – Don’t forget to write your mailing address, telephone or mobile number and your email address.
- Work Experience – Include your work history experience, the company, job title, responsibilities and the dates.
- Education – Include all your educational qualifications here. Ensure to include any licenses or certifications you have acquired.
- Skills – Mention any relevant skills in terms of software and hardware systems and other technical skills.
Make sure your resume looks professional. Use a template to guide you through the format. Have a friend or colleague proof read it before you send it out.
Tailor your resume to the job you are applying for. Be straight to the point – tell them why they should employ you and how you would benefit their company.
