Listen Now: How To Write The Perfect Resume
When you’re looking for a job, first impressions happen on paper. So make it a good one.
A good resume can get you an interview, but a few minor errors on that resume can end your search altogether. So, if you want to improve your odds, MIT career experts say there are seven things your resume should have.
For example, a consistent format. The recruiter sorting you into the yes or no pile, has little time, so keep your format easy and familiar. No one wants to have to go searching for the information they need.
Next, tailor your information. You don’t need to include all the jobs you’ve held throughout your entire life. Instead tailor your listed experience to the job you’re trying to get.
Look at skills listed in the job description and highlight anything you might have done that would make you better at those specific skills.
For other items you need on your resume, including what might be the most important, check out the original article now. Make your needle easier to find in their haystack.
