By On Jul 15, 2018 Resume Template
If you are hunting for that dream role at a creative company you are going to want to dust off your old resume and give it a modern refresh. But how can you make sure that—out of all the applicants—its your resume that catches your future employer’s eye?
The best advice for putting together the content of your resume? Keep it short and sweet. Edit out qualifications and details that are irrelevant to the role. You will find that editing your text down to fill just one page can be tricky, but it’s well worth it—you will appear concise, organized and you’ll also be highlighting only the most important, and best, information about yourself. This is going to make your resume easy-to-digest and a doddle to print (you’re welcome, environment).
The top one-third of your resume is what a recruiter or hiring manager scans to determine if they will read the rest … and they only give it three seconds,” says career coach Jennifer Braganza. Make yours an attention grabber: Point the reader to places where you have samples of your work product — LinkedIn, a personal website — and add your phone and email address. Bonus tip: If you’re still using a Hotmail or Yahoo account, now’s the time to get a Gmail address — or, if applicable, an email tied to your website. “Having a Yahoo, AOL, or education-based email address makes you look like you’re living in the past,” says Christy Hopkins, human resources consultant at Fit Small Business.
