Clean, clear, concise writing is the hallmark of a powerful and modern resume. Readers simply do not have the time or inclination to wade through irrelevant experiences, fluffy adjectives, unnecessary details and other, filler that weighs down many resumes. No one writes tight, lean and clean on the first pass. It requires repeated review, careful editing, and a constant focus on strategy and goals to determine what is important to include and what does not support your professional brand and your current career objectives. In addition to tight writing, pay attention to how your resume is formatted. Avoid dense paragraphs (anything longer than three or four lines) and allow ample white space to create an inviting document that rewards readers, whether they come for a quick skim or a more thorough read. Obviously, your professional experience and educational credentials are vital in positioning you as a well-qualified candidate. However, there are many other items you can—and should—include in your resume if relevant to your career. These items add further value, distinction and qualification. We recommend that you focus the above on professional activities and exclude common civic and/or community-based affiliations. Resume real estate—just one or two pages—is extremely valuable, so you want to be certain that each line of text adds strength to your candidacy.
For Loretta Danielson, we have used a three-line headline. The first line, Human Resources Director, positions her for the level of job she is targeting: the second line communicates the breadth of her experience, from startups to high-growth organizations: and the third line, Positioning HR as a Business Partner for Excellence, is what we refer to as a branding statement, her unique value proposition. One word of caution about headlines—and, in fact, about everything that you include in your resume. Be certain that what you are highlighting matches not only what you have done in the past but also what you want to do in the future. This is extremely important because you want readers to perceive you as a qualified and experienced candidate for the positions you are currently targeting. If you have extensive experience managing compensation and benefits, for example, but you do not want that to be a major part of your next job, do not highlight it with a headline. You can mention it as appropriate in the experience section, but do not make the mistake of drawing attention to something you do not want readers to focus on. Be selective and be strategic.
No matter what the news says about low unemployment rates, if you do not yet have your dream job, you are going to need every tool at your disposal to attract an employers eye. Literally. That is why it is increasingly popular for people to incorporate flashy designs in their resume. For those of us who are not graphic designers, that often means using a resume template. We will point you in the direction of some resume templates out there in a minute, but first, you might be wondering how necessary these are for a job search. Do hiring managers even look at résumés when they can find out everything about us on social media or in those lengthy online applications we are always filling out? Employers are always going to look you up on LinkedIn, but you also need to have some kind of tangible document that you can send along to demonstrate your professional identity. As you browse through some of the templates, you might be tempted to choose the designs that are the most artistic or fit the most words on the page. Konstant warns that those are not necessarily the ones that will land you a job. Some managers in creative fields might welcome an unconventional design, while many others will prefer a more conservative approach.
