Mari Holzer. resume. April 25th , 2017.
So, what is resume writing? Resume writing refers to writing about our personal and professional achievements clearly and effectively in chronological order on a piece of paper. Since, this is the most basic and important aspect of job search, our professionalism and skills must need to be reflected in our resumes. The language we use for communication medium on our resume should be clear, simple and brief.
Strategy Dont get caught up in a one-size fits all approach. The positioning of each document section (i.e. experience, education, technical skills) depends on your background and its relation to your target position. Think about using roles instead of titles (does Administrative Assistant III do my academic program development experience justice?). Use years only, not months, and give the most face time to the most relevant experiences and accomplishments.
"More than just typists, we are qualified to answer many questions that go beyond the resume preparation, such as how to answer tough interview questions or how to post your resume online. If you tell us you are not sure what type of position you are seeking, we will not be able to develop your resume because our resumes are very focused. Like you, we want your resume to WORK! We do not write one-size-fits-all resumes."
After your resumes introductory paragraph that outlines your commitment, goals, traits, and skills, and following your areas of expertise/core competencies, include the section (either education and credentials or professional experience) that is the most applicable to your desired career. For example, if you have more relevant education than experience, list education and credentials first. However, if your post-secondary education was geared toward a different field, yet you have at least some related hands-on experience that correlates with the job your are applying for, then list the experience first. If you do not have relevant education or experience, put the education and credentials section first, and try to strengthen your introductory paragraph instead.
