Your resume in a job application is essentially the document that’s going to market you to potential employers.
Companies are looking for a particular set of skills or qualifications. If those skills don’t jump out at them on your resume, you may be overlooked, even if you’re the best person for the job.
Your resume should start with a "headline summary." It is a very brief summary of what you have to offer as a job candidate. It should be less than two sentences:
Listing skills is not the same as listing your work experience. Your skills should be relevant to the job you're applying for.
The education section is mostly put at the end of the resume unless your job is a professional job that requires a specific education.
If you're applying to a job online, make sure you stand out to the hiring staff and to the computer program that sorts applications.
The "applicant tracking systems" scan your resume for qualifications, skills, experience and keywords. Ensure your resume is effectively formatted and easy to scan.
