- Always have an updated resume. So often, people tend to modernize their resume only when they are seeking employment. In reality, you should always be adding any professional accomplishments as they happen to ensures that you won’t forget about the thousands of dollars you may have saved the company, or any processes you improved — saving the company time and money.
- Use spell check. It is amazing how many resumes come across my desk that will have a misspelled word.
- Make your resume easy to read. Hiring managers look at resumes like drivers going past a billboard. They don’t “read” it. They look them over at a high-speed glance. Use bullet points and leave white space so it is easy on the eyes to read. You can always elaborate on your accomplishments in your interview.
