Writing a Resume, Fast
Not always job seekers have a couple of days to develop their main marketing tool – a resume or CV. Sometimes, people literally have a few hours left before they have to send their application package to a potential employer. If that is the case, job seekers can’t afford spending much time on meditating what’s the best career path for them. This is when one has to be decisive and know how to write a resume in a matter of hours. Sometimes, ordering resume writing services is the best option as seasoned professionals know well how to deliver a quality resume within the most stringent deadlines. However, by far not all resume companies work within such tight deadlines and it may well be that you will have to deal with it on your own. So if you are going to do it yourself, here are some of the things you need to adhere to in order to make the most our of your time and create a winning resume.
Resume Writing Route for Those Who Are Short of Time
1. Break it down into sections. Time management gurus say that in order to manage a complicated task, one has to break it down into manageable chunks. It also works with resume writing if you start with figuring our your sections before you ever start writing the document. Fitting your career into a one or two page document isn’t an easy thing. But when you know what sections you are going to have, then you can tackle each of them separately. This will both save your time and will help you focus on most important things of every section. Make sure you choose only those sections that will help you highlight your strengths. Work experience, education, skills, affiliations, volunteer, side projects – you may not need all of them on your resume (think from a hiring manager’s perspective).
2. List relevant information. Hiring authorities aren’t interested in information that has no relation to the position they are looking to fill in. Think about it this way: if you want to buy a Lamborghini LP 560-4 Spyder, you will have little or no interest in the information about Porsche Carrera or other type of cars. All you will be looking for is information about that a Lamborghini LP 560-4 Spyder and nothing else. The same thing with employers. If they are looking for particular skills in a candidate, they will have little or no interest in the information that doesn’t address the requested qualifications. So think about relevant experiences for every section and write them down.
3. Arrange the sections. Now all you have to do is to arrange the sections in a way so that they altogether would highlight your most relevant strengths and accomplishments. If you have any achievements on your record, you may want to place it on the very top of your document so that employers would see them right away. Most often, hiring managers are interested in one’s accomplishments and past jobs record first. Only then they look for educational credentials and other information like skills or professional affiliations.
4. Edit. With you having little time to develop a resume, the chances are pretty high that you made some mistakes throughout the document. Since submitting a resume or CV with grammatical or spelling mistakes is a very bad move, it is better if you have at least half an hour for editing. Read it several times to ensure it doesn’t contain any flaws. Have some tea or talk to a friend, and after that read it once again.
