Article: Stuck writing or rewriting your resume?

Abridged: The Recorder Online

At this very moment, you may be questioning the next step in life; that could mean attempting to find the career that best suits you for a lifetime or something that will be good in the short-term. Either way, it is in your best interest to be prepared with a resume that is clearly written and has a well defined objective.

Your resume writing experience can be a a positive and uplifting one. Here are just a few helpful tips to consider while you're sitting at your computer stuck in a proverbial funk.

Technical skills come first. Talk about all of the training and knowledge you've acquired from previous jobs, or academically. Before your resume is in the hands of the employer, it will be perused electronically for specific keywords that the business is looking for, so be sure to be precise and use relevant keywords, such as industry or job jargon, and mention all the computer applications which you are proficient in.

Document your qualifications in a list according to their relevance to the company's position. While you may have wonderful artistic skills, it may not be too relevant in a cubical computer environment.

Be factual with your experience. If you helped your company save money or debugged some nasty codes from an entire network of computers, let them know. Be sure to tell them how you would benefit and help them; you are no average Joe.

Use action words. Instead of saying "I was a call rep," say something to the extent of "Provided product fulfillment services to an average of 30 customers a day." Lengthen and embellish a little, but don't stray from the truth.

Give yourself credit. This is where you see the resume as a marketing tool; toot your own horn and tell them what you think you could really bring to the company. Pretend you're a door-to-door salesman: sell yourself. Just don't get too crazy about it.

Be completely clear and precise, and keep it as short as possible. Length doesn't necessarily ensure a sure-fire "in" - so don't worry about it, especially if you aren't the best with words.

Don't give non-pertinent information, like your sexual preference or your political beliefs. These are things the reader does not need to know about; you wouldn't want them judging you over such trivial matters.

Always make sure to check your grammar! No one is a perfect writer, and even though you might be sick and tired of it after you write that last sentence, you need to proofread. Seriously, what if you spelled your own name wrong?
