Your resume is an essential tool for your job search.

Resumes don't get jobs, they get interviews

Your resume is an essential tool for your job search. Resumes don’t get jobs, they get interviews. They give a brief overview of your background, skills and experience. An effective resume is basically a selling tool – a chance for you to market your skills and strengths that make you an ideal candidate for the job.

Make it as thorough as possible.
Your resume is also a personal reflection of you: your skills, your experience and your style. Personalize it. There is no absolutely correct way to do your resume.

Choose the format that best highlights your strengths and accomplishments.
Remember that employers receive hundreds of resumes and may only glance over them to find those that catch their eye. You need to ensure that yours will catch their eye by paying attention to your resume’s organization, appearance and content.

Follow these simple steps to get started, and then check below for a list resume writing tips and suggestions.

STEPS IN WRITING A RESUME Steps in writing a resume

Examine your background.
On a blank sheet of paper, list all your work history and below each position list all your job duties/responsibilities. Once you have completed that, number those job duties in the order of importance. (This can be a time-consuming, but it is worth it to take the time in the beginning AND it will make the rest of the process easier. Include full-time, part-time and volunteer work).
Translate the details into the best language for a resume.
Narrow your list of job duties for each position using a list of action verbs. Re-write each statement starting with an action verb.
Write a Rough Draft.
Select the style of resume you want to use and begin writing a rough draft. Arrange the resume on the page so it is easy to read and attractive. Be brief, concise and action oriented.
Review the rough draft.
Put the draft down for a while and then come back to it. Have friends and family proofread it for suggestions, comments, and ideas. Eliminate all spelling and typographical errors. Review it for complete information. Finally, make any necessary changes or additions.
Write final draft.
Once you have completed your final draft, review it again. Check the overall appearance. Make sure it lists your most noteworthy skills, experiences, and accomplishments. Have friends and family proofread it one more time. Then, make changes and update as needed.
