Creative Ways to Improve Your Resume
Your resume is your own personal promotional advertisement; including sufficient information to sell your skills and experience will determine whether you are asked for an interview. A resumé is a marketing document, not a historical record. Your current career goals should always determine which parts of your story to highlight and which to minimize.
Make a great first impression
The first section of your resume shows a clear picture of the value you’ll bring to an employer. The headline and the summary section can be used to capture the reader’s superfluous attention by emphasizing outstanding successes, experience, expertise and professional qualities.
Analyze the Job Post's Wording
An easy way to make sure your resume gets you in the door for an interview is to echo the language in the job post. Look for ways to use the words in the post; a resume reader -- human or software -- may be screening for them. (If there is no job post, check the company's Web site -- especially the About Us page and any corporate mission statements -- for language you might adopt.)
You should be very specific about your resume length; if you have of seven years of experience working at different positions, your resume should be two pages. With low work experience, write a one page resume.
