Today, the job market is more competitive than ever, so much so that a recruiter usually has a hard time going through a larger number of applicants and their resumes. Not all of the hundreds who apply will even make it through the initial part and their resumes will hit the trash can right away. Only very few will be granted an interview, and your ultimate goal in writing your resume is to make it impressive enough to snag that coveted interview and improve your chances of getting hired for the position you are applying for. If you're confused as to what things you should include and emphasize in your resume, and what to avoid at all cost, there are several websites you can find on the Internet that offer tutorials on how to write a resume, as well as free resume examples.
I'm in my late 30s, and for the first time in over a decade I find myself in need of a job. I have been downsized. And I have to admit, my 12 year old resume needs some major work before I send it out. I have looked at many an example of a resume. The overall objective is the same: to tell an employer why you are the best qualified candidate for the position you are seeking. But there are many ways to get that message across. You need to find the best format to best showcase your experience and qualifications. You can look online for free resume makers, or there are usually some styles and formatting options in your word processing program. They will give you the basics of what you need. But depending on the job for which you are applying you may want to tweak those formats somewhat.
Whatever means more to the employer is what you want to highlight and showcase on your resume. Make sure, especially if you are using a template or working off of an example of a resume, that you have the leeway to do it your way. Does it make more sense to list experience and qualifications in a chronological order, or are these traits best grouped by specific aptitudes? For example, if an employer stresses leadership as a necessary, you may want a section titled Leadership, and then give examples from your education, your training, your work experiences all the different ways you can show that you have leadership qualities. Then title another section with another desirable quality and highlight how you meet that criterion.
