Things To Do Before You Send Out Your Resume

Let's assume you have created what you think is a perfect resume and are ready to hit the send button. But are you sure that recruiters or employers will evaluate your resume the way you did? The problem is that most job seekers like their own resumes but employers tend to look at them at a different angle. So then this is not about what you like but rather what seems to be good in the eyes of those who make decisions regarding your employment. If you have your resume ready for the send-out you might want to take a pause and read this article where we will try to list some of the things you need to do before you send out your resume. It won't take much time but can significantly improve the quality of your resume and increase your chances of getting an interview call.

The Checklist

apply-now-job-hiring-help-ss-1920-800x450I think it would be beneficial to start with reading some articles about the most common resume writing mistakes. What if despite all of your professional writing skills you could make the mistakes most people make when creating a resume. The thing is that this kind of articles are based on the experience of hiring authorities and recruiting agencies which means it is definitely worth your attention. So why wouldn't you search for 'worst resume mistakes' or 'most common resume mistakes' in your internet search engine? You may be surprised to know about some things even though it seemed like you knew it all. There are a bunch of resources available online for free that could help you see what might be possibly wrong with your perfect resume.

After you have researched the information and maybe even corrected some of the mistakes on your resume it is a good idea to find a reliable source of feedback. Someone who will honestly tell you what's wrong with your resume or why it is not perfect. It is important that such a person would be a field expert in order to be able to objectively evaluate your resume. A high-schooler can only help you see whether your resume is a clear message about who you are. But you need someone who will be able to tell whether that message in your resume will be relevant to the hiring authorities.

The last thing we want to ask you about is to check the details. Resume formatting may seem to be like a small thing to you but not to employers. Details come upfront when your resume is on the same level as the resume of your main competitors. And very often, when candidates have even chances details can make a huge difference. Therefore, check if you use proper fonts on your resume. Make sure your resume is no longer than 2 pages. If you used a resume template it is important that it wouldn't look like you just copy-pasted your information into a ready template. There are more aspects to take into account but if you handle the aforementioned ones you will be just fine.

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 tell you that my resume now looks very, very impressive. It’s perfection itself!

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!!!
