Step-By-Step Instructions on Resume Writing

five-ways-to-crack-a-phone-interviewThe very first things you have to know before writing your resume, CV or even cover letter is that your application documents won't grant you employment. A successful interview will. It is important to know the purpose of a resume in order to have the right expectations. Secondly, you have to know what type of job you will be applying for. In other words, before a job seeker starts to write his/her resume one needs to know whether he/she will be applying for the "sales associate", "lawyer", or "physician". Without knowing where you want to go it is impossible to reach the destination point. Now, let's move on to the actual writing process.

1) On the very top of your resume put on your name with contact details (address, city, state, zip code, email address, and phone number).

2) Proceed to list your summary of qualifications. List all of your expertise, skills, and experience relevant to the applying position. It is best if you write this section in the form of bullet statements.

3) After you are done with the summary of qualifications list your accomplishments and achievements. It is best if they will be specific with numbers of percentages.

4) Professional experience section. List your employment history with names of the company, employment dates, job titles and responsibilities for each and every job. Don't include outdated jobs and those that have no relation to the applying position. Start with the most recent jobs first ending this section with most old employments.

5) Another essential section of every resume - education. Employers are interested in the names of educational establishments, graduation dates and degrees obtained. Don't put on your high school diploma. Use reverse-chronological order as in the professional experience section.

6) If you have undergone any training or received any specific certificates/licenses it will be a good idea to create a special section for such information right after the education section.

7) You can also include information about your technical proficiency, memberships, and affiliations, etc.

Thank you for the wonderful resume and layout. I am pleased with the work. My job search will kick into high gear in December so I will probably be using cover letter service then. Please add the gaduation date from Excel Technical college as 1998. Thank you so much.

Well written and it doesn't concentrate on the foodservice manager, a field I do not want to work in.

I wanted to let you know that I got the resume the very day you sent it out. My interview was scheduled for Tuesday and that same night, by 10 pm, I got an email from the principal informing me that the position was mine. The result was superquick!!! The job’s at the school I really wanted to be a part of. Thanks a million!!!
