5 Tips to “Spring Clean” Your Resume – Part 2 of 2

Thursday, January 31st, 2013 | Posted in Blog, News item

3. BE ACTIVE.
In your Resume, use strong action verbs at the beginning of every sentence. Words such as “lead, launched, directed, built, managed and generated” have a lot more impact than a passive phrases such as “responsible for” or “handled.”

4. BE SELECTIVE.
Focus on information that is truly relevant to your career goal and edit out the rest. There is no need to focus on your high school achievements or volunteer work if they are not relevant to the career you are looking for or if they are in your distant past.

5. BE HONEST.
Never, never, never lie on a Resume. If you lie or “stretch the truth,” you will always lose in the long run.

Your Resume is a “living document” that will be edited and updated through the course of your job search and your entire career. Taking a good look at it this Spring, and at the start of every season, will help you get more interviews – and ultimately, better job offers!
