Tips for your resume

8 Tips to Getting Your Resume Noticed


  1. Customize your resume: Make sure to tailor your resume for each position you are applying for, highlighting the specific skills and experience that are most relevant to the job.
  2. Use keywords: Many companies use applicant tracking systems (ATS) to scan resumes for specific keywords. Research the job posting and use relevant keywords in your resume.
  3. Keep it concise: Recruiters and hiring managers are busy, so keep your resume short and to the point. A two-page resume is ideal.
  4. Focus on technical skills: In the tech industry, technical skills are highly valued. Make sure to highlight your technical expertise and any relevant certifications.
  5. Use bullet points: Use bullet points to break up long paragraphs and make your resume easy to read. This will also help your resume stand out visually.
  6. Include metrics: Use metrics to quantify your achievements and show the impact of your work. For example, “Improved website traffic by 50% in six months.
  7. Use a professional format: Use a clean, professional format that is easy to read. Avoid using fancy fonts or graphics that may distract from your content. A Word document is best. Graphic styles and hidden text will cause problems when your resume is parsed into an ATS database.
  8. Proofread! Typos and grammatical errors can make a bad impression on recruiters and hiring managers. Make sure to proofread your resume carefully and have someone else read it over as well.
