Online Resume & CV Writing Services
The most vital component of a job search boils down to one main factor: the quality of your resume. In this day and age, unless you have been referred, or have an opportunity somewhere because your professional experience speaks for itself, a piece of paper with your professional and academic experience and your name on it is all a prospective employer is going to know about you until you’ve secured an interview.
This means that knowing what information to include and what information to exclude is likely to make or break your chances of receiving an interview. HR employees and hiring managers are busy people and often spend entire days reading through piles of resumes from hopeful job applicants. Making the process more efficient means immediately weeding out those resumes which don’t stand out, or are too time consuming to read. A good resume should be structured as follows:
● Centred header with name and contact information
● Relevant and transferable skills
● Work experience
● Academic experience
● Volunteer experience
● Hobbies and interests (optional if there is space)
An employer is, first and foremost, interested in your relevant work experience, which is why your resume really needs to shine here. As important as your secondary and post-secondary education is, it is the transferable skills you have acquired while in the workforce that will dictate how much of an investment in you an employer will have to make to bring you up to speed and have you working productively.
Additionally, a resume should be:
● Carefully spellchecked
● Not a repetition of your cover letter
● Free of glaring empty spaces
● Typically no longer than 2 pages in length (although sometimes more information is required for certain industries and positions)
