There are a million resume-writing websites on the internet with a million great tips.
So here are a few of my own from my own experience.
1. Keep your resume concise, but don’t leave out important details for the job to which you are applying. If it’s really important for your interviewer to know something about you, it’s better to put it in the resume than to leave it out.
2. Tailor you resume for the job you are applying to. These days, we may find ourselves applying to several completely different jobs. It’s a great idea to have a separate version of your resume for these different jobs. Put the information in your resume that is related to the job you are applying to, and leave the extra stuff out. Put in a note that says: “Further background information and employment history available on request.” This lets your interviewer know that there may be more information, but that they can ask if it’s important to them. It will give you something extra to talk about in the interview, which is not a bad thing at all.
3. Make good eye contact, give a good handshake, speak clearly and not too fast, and be yourself, but still put your best foot forward.
