Resume is your sales person. Long before
you personally get to meet a potential employee or have an
interview your resume will be fighting your corner on your
behalf. It is essential, then, that you create an effective
resume. Your resume will be one of hundreds, if not thousands,
that employers will see so you should ensure that it really
stands out and promotes your services. The exact approach your
resume will take will depend on you and your circumstances.
School leavers and graduates will not have very
much in the way of work experience to place on a
Resume. If you
fall into this category then you should pay particular attention
to your academic achievements. Point out any other facts
pertaining to your school life and the rest of your life that
can be drawn on when you get a job. If you successfully
completed work experience then include this and give details of
the tasks you performed.
On the other hand if your experience has been
gained in the work place and you have little in the way of
formal qualifications then you should use your employment
history to your advantage. Talk about the roles in a little more
detail and describe the tasks you undertook. The more advanced
or the more trusted a particular role was, the more you should
draw upon that in your description.
A highly effective resume will also include an
accomplishment section with each qualification or job section
that is relevant. You can include graduation, or you could
include particular work related accomplishments. Remember, there
is a chance that somebody else has equal skills or
qualifications to yourself but by using your accomplishments as
your main benefit you will still stand out and make a positive
impression. As well as your covering letter your
