5 Golden Rules for a better resume

5 Gold Rules for a better resume

1.) State the obvious up front.
Your opening Summary/Professional Profile must clearly tell the reader what type of position you are qualified for. Make sure to give a clear, concise introductory sentence telling the reader what type of professional you are.

2.) Do not use Objective.
From hiring managers and recruiters, this information is not important. Instead, replace this content with a Summary or Professional Profile as stated above.

3.) Remove excessive symbols.
Please, keep it clean and easy to read. Choose a simple bullet point circle and avoid other unnecessary marks throughout your resume.

4.) Dog Lover.
Unless you’re applying for a position as a veterinarian, leave off your personal interests and hobbies unless they have some relation with the position you’re applying for.

5.) References Available Upon Request.
Once again, not necessary as the recruiter will ask for references much later in the application process if they first find you qualified for the position and are being considered for an offer.
