I have been working diligently lately on a resume that is sure to get me any internship I want. This has taken a lot of research, however, and I am going to share some of the tips I have found so that you, too, may take your resume from ordinary to outstanding.
1. Do not have one standard resume
-Tailor your resume to specifics that the company is looking for.
2. Resumes do not have one specific format
-Make employers say, “Wow, this is different”. You. only have
about 20-30 seconds to impress the employer in a stack of
hundreds of resumes
3. Resumes are not necessarily one page
-You need to highlight all relevant and important information,
do not edit things out just because they do not fit onto one page.
4. Focus on the employer’s needs, not yours
-You are trying to show that you are the perfect candidate.
5. Replace responsibilities with accomplishments
-This shows an employer what YOU can do, not any other
person at this position.
6. A specific, highlighting objective
-Be sure to show how your qualities are going to make their
company better, in a very specific manner. It is necessary to
research what the company is actually working towards.
-Showing actual numbers is better than making vague statements.
8. Use impressive verbs
-This is sure to make your resume stand out from the rest.
These are just a few of the tips to ensure that your resume is better than the rest. Do you have any other suggestions?
