Resume Writing Tips To Help You Get That Amazing Job






The personal touch

In this ninth blog in our series of ten we look at the personal information you put in your resume, why it's so important to employers and why, it just may get you the job you want. Recruiters don't only want a robot with all the right experiential boxes ticked but also a friendly, genuine and approachable candidate.

A recruiter is not looking for a robot with all the correct experience but a friendly, genuine and approachable candidate. The impression to give an employer concerning the kind of person you are and what you'll be like to have around the workplace needs to be a positive and a strong one.

Obviously the majority of the work in creating a good personal impression and building up a rapport is done at the interview stage, but the task begins with your covering letter and résumé. Employers and recruiters or headhunters will be building up a mental picture of you as they read through your resume and of course, you want it to be a positive one! Whatever you write, even if it seems trivial, try to think about how it reflects on you and what sort of impression you are giving to a potential employer. Many résumés can be impersonal lists of dates and places and while this is appropriate and informative, it certainly isn't everything. It would help the overall picture you're trying to convey if you explain and phrase everything in a way that makes your details distinct and memorable. In doing this you'll stand out from the crowd and give yourself a better chance of securing an interview.  Keep all the other tips in mind as you do this - so, for example, do not revert to statements beginning with "I" and lots or rambling details but use the summary at the top to emphasise your approach and philosophy through the including of successes and job focus. Talking about what was done and achieved.  Your selection of exactly which examples to share will also say a lot about yourself so cover a wide range which matches the needs of the job.  So including something about people, something about finances, something quantitative, something qualitative and so on.
