Why should I write a resume? Most employers require applicants to submit a resume. Without one you may not get considered for the job. A well-written resume will show employers how your skills, experiences and qualifications can contribute to the workplace and meet their needs. They look for a specific set of skills that match the skills necessary to perform a particular job. A well-prepared resume shows employers you are serious about finding a job and should get them interested in calling you for a job interview.
Employers receive many resumes and are usually in a hurry. They don’t spend time that are hard to read, sloppy or incomplete. The average amount of time that an employer spends skimming a resume is 20 seconds. If you think about how long 20 seconds really is, you don’t have a lot of time to waste! Every second counts, so make sure you design a resume that looks great and grabs your reader’s attention. Creating a winning resume can make the difference between ending up in an employer’s “to be interviewed” pile or the “not interested” pile. Remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. With the “Hired Design Studio” templates and tips, you will greatly increase the chances of getting an interview and getting hired. Our resumes provides an overview of your background and also outlines specific accomplishments and experiences.
Remember, the person reading your resume has a problem. Your job is to demonstrate that you have the requisite skills to meet their needs. A targeted, reverse chronological resume is the best way to achieve this objective.
We recommend that you develop several resumes that are individually targeted to the positions you are looking for. Doing so will increase the likelihood that your resume will include related skills. It is more effective to have several targeted resumes that focus on specific positions than one that is too broad and vague. We recommend that you develop a template and adapt it according to the positions for which you are applying.
