  • Remember that if you have limited professional experience, you can include other sections on your resume. Be creative and see how you can fill the page with a combination of internships, projects, volunteering, coursework, and education. Just don't reduce the font to 9 and make the recruiter need to pull out a microscope! Usually a font size of 11-12 will give the best results.

  • Tailoring your resume is crucial to your success. Would you rather send 35 generic resumes and get 2 interviews, or send 10 resumes best suited for you and end up with 4 interviews? We have mentioned in past posts how a hiring manager with many resumes to look over might not spend more than several seconds scanning yours. Along with job titles, they are also checking to see if you have the skills necessary for the job. Go through the job description and highlight any job related skills (hard and soft) that it asks for. Then make sure to include those keywords on your resume! Of course only if they apply to you. Making the effort to tailor your resume to each job you apply for will pay off. Don't forget to do the same thing for your cover letter!

  • A follow-up to yesterday's post. Remember to list achievements as much as possible rather than just describing your job duties. Let's take a look at a possible bullet on a resume: "responsible for assisting with marketing strategies."๐ŸšซโŒ That is boring and uninsightful. How can we make it better? By getting specific. ๐Ÿ”ฅ"Created marketing plan with the help of google analytics for an annual fundraiser that made $10,000 in the first 3 days of the campaign."๐Ÿ”ฅMuch better! ๐Ÿ’ช

  • An effective resume should focus on accomplishments rather than duties and responsibilities. If you only copy paste the job descriptions from your previous positions then there is nothing that sets you apart from the competition. Potential employers want to know you were a go-getter in past roles who MADE things happen and didn't just passively occupy a seat in the office. Use hard numbers and meaningful metrics to show how you solved problems, enhanced revenue, grew the business or met challenges. You are a superstar, so let them know it! ๐ŸŒ โœจโญ

  • ๐Ÿ˜ฏWorried because you think the only thing you have to list on your resume is your first job washing dishes for your local restaurant? Well great news! โ˜บThere is so much more you can include on your resume than just work experience. Perhaps you majored in French, but took a course in copywriting which is relevant to your desired job. Expand your education section by including that course. Maybe you helped organize an art exhibition or other event? Fantastic, you've got organizational skills.โœ” Be creative with your resume and see how you can fill the page with a combination of internships, projects, volunteering, coursework, and education. ๐Ÿ’ก

  • Rezi resume tip #2๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช
No one needs to know about the embarassing things that happened to you in high school. Leave all that drama in the past where it belongs! Resumes should only include your university education, which can be used to highlight any job-relevant courses you took. In most cases GPA will not be necessary to add, however if yours is stellar then feel free to include it. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  • ๐Ÿ”ฅResume tip #1๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ฏ Research from @workopolis shows that recruiters spend an average of fewer than 11 seconds looking at your resume before possibly rejecting your application. 11 seconds! When is the last time you did anything in 11 seconds, other than opening the kitchen cupboard to grab a new bag of Doritos? Don't make it easy for employers to toss you in the no pile by making the information that is important to them easy to find. Ensure a nicely formatted document with work history, education, and skills sections plainly marked. Make sure there are no typos and list all your start and end dates as well as job titles. ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ’ฅ
