Tips for a Standout Resume

Customize Your Resume - Tailoring your resume in order to match the needs of the employer is an integral part of the resume writing process. This does not mean inventing skills, but rather emphasizing parts of your skill set as the position requires.

Use Action Words - Using the right verbs helps control the image that employers develop of you. Use verbs that match the level of position you want. If, for example, you are applying for a management position, strengthen your image by using as many management-oriented words as possible.

Use Bulleted Sentences - Employers are normally swamped with resumes each day, and often can't take the extra time required to read through each and every one. The key to using bulleted sentences is to catch the eye of the employer, giving him or her the impressive points of your resume quickly.

Formatting is Important! - The formatting of the text, including white space, headings, fonts, and typesetting, creates an immense impact on the prospective employer, and will make it easier for him or her to read.
