No matter how many hundreds, or even thousands, of resumes you have reviewed throughout your HR career, writing your own resume is always a challenge. It can be difficult to take a step back and look at your career objectively to identify what makes you uniquely qualified and distinctive from other candidates. Why are people going to remember you? Why will people want to hire you? What is your unique value to a new employer? The answers to those questions and many others should be the foundation upon which you build your resume and brand yourself for new professional opportunities. While there is no formula or single template to use in crafting an HR resume, there are certain guidelines that will help you write, format and design a resume that will showcase your greatest talents, accomplishments and value to a potential new employer. These seven, rules of the resume road, are applicable to all HR professionals, managers and executives.
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.
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.
