If you want to write an effective resume that will land an interview, here are 3 things that you will need to do in order to accomplish this goal:
- Identify a Job Target: Most people do not set out on a long trip without first making a plan. This type of logic should also be applied to creating your resume. If you do not have an exact job description, at least be able to identify the type of job or the industry. Knowing this information will help you provide the right type of evidence for the target employer.
- Accomplishments: What have you done throughout your career? What are you most proud of? Make sure to identify these things as they will be necessary for proving your candidacy. Also, be sure to choose an appropriate resume format that will showcase your unique accomplishments in a way that is appealing to a potential employer.
- Make Time: Writing an effective resume can take at least 5 hours. So, if you came across a job opportunity today that closes tomorrow, plan to carve out at least 5 hours in your schedule to get the application submitted on time. You may also need an additional 2 hours to craft a tailored cover letter which accurately reflects your resume.
