With unemployment number still high around the country, it's now more important than ever to stand out in a flooded market.
This morning we talked with Erin Cambier, a professional resume writer and career coach about tips to putting together an attention-getting resume.
Here just a few tips-for more check out the interview:
1. The average recruiter only spends about 10 seconds looking at your resume-so get to point early and only put the most pertinent information.
2. A resume should be considered a marketing tool. Everything in your resume should be positioned toward this goal.
3. Always make sure your resume is free of errors: spelling, grammar, and no photos!
4. Don't be afraid to toot your own horn! This is your chance to shine.
5. Always send a cover letter to accompany your resume.
6. Remember your audience when writing you resume.
These are just a few valuable tips for creating a winning resume.
