Help your readers understand the depth and breadth of your experience by providing details about the organizations where you’ve worked. You can cite the number of employees, the number of locations, the total annual company revenue, the specific business or industry, and other details that will give readers a frame of reference. You will notice brief company descriptions on both of the resume samples we are sharing. On Leslies resume, the information is integrated into the short paragraph immediately under each companys name. On Lorettas resume, the information is positioned right next to the company name. No matter where you position the information, it is valuable. Knowing where you have worked helps readers put everything into context and makes your experience and accomplishments all that more impressive. Just as with your headline, be strategic. If you have worked only at very large public companies and now want to move to a small privately held business, the size of those companies might scare off your target employers. Think about your goals and add the details that make you a good fit for the companies, associations and/or other organizations where you want to work.
Carrying on with our discussion of the importance of keywords, as an HR professional you have an advantage over most candidates. You have the opportunity to look, under the hood of an applicant tracking system (ATS) to see what happens in a typical keyword-driven resume review. Use that knowledge for your own benefit. Because there are so many ATSs, and because candidate searches are conducted by humans who have their own habits and preferences, you can not guarantee a perfect result from every ATS scan. But you can—and should—follow best practices for formatting your resume, integrating keywords and increasing keyword density. For example, in Lorettas resume you will note that the acronyms after her name are later spelled out fully in the appropriate section of the resume. SHRM-SCP becomes Society for Human Resource Management Senior Certified Professional under the Education & Professional Credentials section. This gives her a greater chance of being found in a computerized keyword scan, regardless of the exact term the hiring manager inputs for a specific search.
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.
