Sample Resume for Job Opening

Have a resume that will get their attention in terms of the elements of the layout that will invite them to read it.
  1. Include active verbs to engage the reader and get them involved
  2. Include what the applicant can do, skills they have acquired and lessons they have learned in past companies
  3. Emphasize what they have contributed to companies in the past. How were they valuable to specific projects and the daily operations of the company?
  4. Not just list jobs and responsibilities, but what they have accomplished, learned, and contributed to their last companies.
  5. Employers are looking for any reason not to hire so grammatical errors will put a submitted resume into the trash.
  6. Many times it more about the presentation of the resume than of the contents.
  7. People are looking for a quality person that is trainable and teachable.
  8. Do research on each company and be genuinely interested in their company and what you can do for them
