Spring Clean Your Resume

Spring Clean Your ResumeWhen was the last time you polished up your resume? By keeping your resume updated and polished at all times, you’ll have it ready when you need it, whether that be as a follow-up to an informational interview, or to hit the ground running should you find yourself on a job hunt.

 

 

  1. Check that your contact information is up to date. While you’re at it, do you have a professional-looking email address, i.e. firstnamelastname@email.com? If not, now’s the time to get one. Avoid using one like flowerpower12345@email.com. Your resume is often the first time a hiring manager will get introduced to you, and as the saying goes, you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression!
  2. Where possible, rewrite responsibilities as achievements and kick off your bullet points with powerful verbs. Examples:
    1. Realized $350,000 in cost savings in first 3 months by restructuring vendor alliances.
    2. Accounted for more than 15% of company’s revenue.
  3. Add any certifications or training that you completed since your last resume update.
  4. 4. Make sure format and font can be read on all computers. Choosing a standard, universal font will also help your resume get through applicant tracking systems (ATS), a.k.a. the online job application forms.
  5. 5. Spellcheck, spellcheck, spellcheck.
