Resume Writing Tips

When creating your resume, you'll want to present yourself in the best light possible to your prospective employers. Here are some helpful tips to help you write an effective resume.

Use Action Verbs

Action verbs make your description of your accomplishments stand out. Use them as the first words in bulleted lists of skills, accomplishments and responsibilities.

Use Keywords

Keywords are description words and phrases, usually nouns that may be associated with certain industries. By using keywords, you are showing that you have studied certain subjects, know how to use specific tools and have a certain type of skill set.

What keywords should you use?

  • Keywords  and phrases that appear in the job posting
  • Visit the employers website and view for additional keywords
  • Talk to people in the industry and ask them about the qualifications for the position you are hoping to gain
