What To Include In A Resume

Depending on where you are at in your career, it can be totally scary to sit down and write a strong Resume words. If you have had a long career, you have pages and pages of experience to document. If you have just graduated college, you are probably trying to make your half a page of professional experience fill two pages (without sounding like you made stuff up to fill space).

How do you come up with the Professional Strong Resume Words to showcase your talents and abilities to your future employers?

The ideal length for a Resume is 2 pages long, so you’re going to have to figure out what is the MOST important information to include and how to make it sound amazing.

The first step is to decide what kind of job you’re looking for. Tailor your Resume around that. Talk up the points that best fit that job. Flesh out the sections of your Resume that specifically cater to the position you are applying for. It’s ok to have a few versions of your Resume.

The second part is to decide what kind of company you want to work at. Corporate vs start up is very important. They are VERY different. Sit down and make a pro/con list to base yourself off of. Emphasize your past experience and success stories and write Strong and professional words in the Resume about how they make you an ideal candidate.

The third and most important part of what to include in your Resume is to determine your unique value. What do YOU bring to a company? What sets YOU apart from the hundreds of other people all vying for this same job? You need to capitalize on your uniqueness. If you have a special combination of skills that makes you different, write about it. Choose your accomplishments that showcase those skills and add some Strong skills in your Resume. Stick to what they NEED to know about you.

If you are at over 2 pages at this point, it’s time to think about deleted some sentences to get it down. Ask yourself: “If I take away this sentence, will it hurt my chances of getting an interview?” and listen to the answer. If “NO”, it goes. If “YES”, it stays.

If you use these steps to create the perfect Resume, you’ll have a much better chance of landing the job. Of course, if you don’t want to do all this yourself, we can help with that.
