Of course, your resume will start with your name and contact information (phone number and live links to both your e-mail address and LinkedIn profile) prominently positioned at the top of the page. Immediately following that, include a headline statement that tells readers, who, you are professionally in regard to your current career objective. With just a quick glance, readers instantly recognize that you are an HR generalist, an employee and benefits specialist, or a senior HR and organizational development executive. Your headline statement replaces the now outdated Career Summary or Professional Profile heading that you may have used in the past to begin the summary section of your resume. Those headings do not communicate any information, while your headline instantly does. After you have written your headline, think about adding one or two subheadings to further define your expertise. Do you have an industry specialization? Any distinguishing credentials? Experience with a hot-button HR issue? With just a few words, you can quickly convey relevant and valuable information about yourself that will set you apart from other candidates. In the two sample resumes that accompany this article, you will immediately notice the relevant headlines: Human Resources Manager for Leslie Grant, followed by three short, bulleted statements that summarize her key areas of expertise. (The resumes are both linked to each persons name, and appear at the end of the article.)
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.
You know how important keywords are for both human readers and electronic eyes scanning your resume. If you don not include those all-important terms, you may be perceived as unqualified and your resume may be passed over. Do not let that happen to you!. Look for opportunities to introduce keywords throughout your resume. You can create a Core Competencies or Professional Skills Summary at the top, but that is not enough. You want keywords to be prevalent throughout every section of your resume. Look at Leslies resume. When you read her Professional Experience section, you find a wealth of HR keywords in every sentence. What is more, her resume is not loaded with lengthy responsible for statements. Rather, the keywords are seamlessly integrated into all of her achievement bullets so that readers gain clear and compelling evidence of her HR activities, expertise and value. Next, look at Lorettas resume. One of the first things you notice in the Professional Experience section are the bold keywords at the start of each bullet point. This is a very effective strategy both for increasing the keyword density of your resume and for making your resume highly skimmable. Readers immediately gain a sense of your expertise from a quick keyword scan, setting you apart from the competition.
