In general recruiters take only 6 seconds to get an impression of your resume. That is very short so the first impression needs to be eye catching. You are certainly not going to be hired when your resume doesn’t make it through the initial screening. So what is exactly what they are looking for at first sight? We give you 10 things to considerate to make a killer resume. Make it easy to read It may sound obvious but have a clean layout with plenty of white space. Use bulleted lists for the most important facts so that is easy to see for the recruiter. Tailor your resume to the job that you desire A general written resume doesn’t cut it. In now-a-days digital age it is not difficult to tweak your resume to the specific job you are applying for. No personal stuff Recruiters are looking for your skills, experience and your talents. They are not interested in your hobbies or volunteer activities. Include your accomplishments Have a clear list of your job-related accomplishments and when possible include specific numbers to show just exactly how much your accomplishments were a benefit for your past employers. Better say you saved the business $50,000 by decreasing production costs without loosing quality that simply saying you reduces production costs. Focus on the future Getting a new interview is much easier when you show your potential and desire. Create a fantastic resume by focusing on things that show a path your new future career you are aiming for. No need to list your entire career and educational history. Prioritize Put your most important accomplishments near thtop of the resume. In that way the recruiter reads them first. That will neatly fits into those 6 seconds of attention he gives your resume. Write it well Avoid grammatical errors and misspelled words. Let somebody else proofread your resume before sending it out. Make sure what you have written makes sense and that your qualifications are clear. Use no jargon Write simple and using industry buzzwords is a big nono. It makes you look trying too hard. Include no liabilities Don’t include anything that put you in disadvantage in the eyes of the recruiter. No information of long-term absence due to illness or whatever reason, or a dislike of numbers, paper works etc. Doing this will result in finding your resume in the discard pile. Share your passion Emphasize the skills and work activities you really love so your passion for your industry shines through. Never talk about things you might be good at but don’t really like. THis will make the job interview difficult.
