    and what do you eliminate from your job history Should there be a section that outlines my technical skills And how and where do I include my education When I started writing resumes for people I quickly discovered that I especially enjoy drawing out information that makes them shine as a job candidate Since 2008 I have found that many people especially women don t give themselves enough credit for their achievements By writing a resume that is dynamic descriptive and aligned with today s job market I enjoy helping them feel confident as they move forward with their job search As a Certified Professional Resume Writer and a member of the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches and the National Resume Writers Association I am up to date on resume techniques and know how to position candidates in the workplace While there are many tips and ideas for writing your resume I m going to give you the top five tips that will help you get started with this process Tip 1 Get organized Keep a folder hard copy or electronic copy with all of your past job information If possible maintain those job descriptions make a list of previous employers and job titles dates of employment and achievements Then copy your college transcripts so you have the official name of your school degree and any major or minor Tip 2 Decide if you are going to use a chronological format or a functional format A chronological resume is the most common and allows you to list your employment from most recent to oldest showing the specific order of your past positions This is perfect when you don t have any periods without work have remained in the same employment sector and don t have a lot of job changes A functional resume shows your achievements and abilities with little emphasis on the dates Functional resumes are appropriate when you have changed jobs often don t have a great deal of experience or if you are seeking a career move to an entirely different field Tip 3 Lose the objective If you haven t worked on your resume for many years you may still have an objective on the top of your resume Let s face it if you are sending a resume for a potential job opportunity your objective is simply to get an interview and then get a new job Because the objective is self explanatory it is important to use this space for a career summary and something more meaningful than a useless statement Construct a three to five line high overview of your career experiences skill set and core competencies Tip 4 Be concise Because employers may be receiving hundreds of resumes for one potential position you need to catch their attention immediately There is no effective way to list everything you have done Choose what is most important use phrases instead of full sentences and implement bullet points to emphasize achievements When

    As you start to piece together all of the information for your resume you may become overwhelmed with dates of employment responsibilities at each position and achievements while working for others However keep in mind that a resume shouldn t simply be a detailed list of your work history Oftentimes people forget to include additional information information that can be critical to catching the eye of a potential employer Freelance or Contract Projects As the economy moves more toward contingency workers and temporary contracts chances are that you may have worked on a freelance basis Whether you worked as a writer photographer or project manager these freelance and contract projects are important Not only do they show a particular skill set within an industry it also demonstrates your ability to jump in with an organization and provide the services they need all at the right time the right price and the right place Entrepreneurial Spirit What if you are attempting to re enter an industry that you left many years ago An employer may wonder what you were doing throughout those years Many of my clients have their own business on the side Don t forget to include this information in your resume This type of work can show a hard working nature the ability to schedule time coordinate employees and build your own income These are all transferable skills that can be utilized in future positions Continuing Education No matter where you have worked chances are that you have attended training within your company at the industry level or through a national association If you do not have a college degree or advanced education this section becomes vital to showcasing your desire to better yourself in your career Include the names of the trainings along with the organization that

    the way you re perceived It s important to be mindful of sitting upright which will make you seem comfortable and confident Slouching in a chair could leave the impression that you re nervous tense and lacking energy In addition to sitting up straight leaning forward slightly will send the message that you re interested and engaged Forbes suggests power posing for an interview this is when you are in a position of confidence even when you don t feel confident directly affecting your brain s testosterone and cortisol levels and makes you feel more confident Handshake A firm handshake but not overly firm as that could come off as aggressive when meeting an interviewer is extremely important when it comes to a positive first impression While shaking hands look your interviewer in the eye and let the handshake feel natural not too long and not too short Eye Contact An easy way to show that you re actively listening engaged and confident is by making eye contact and maintaining it To avoid looking like you re staring blankly hold eye contact for periods of about 10 seconds before looking away briefly and then re establishing eye contact Looking downwards can give the impression that you re insincere or submissive However it is fine to look down if you are taking notes or referring to something in front of you Body positioning Hand positioning during an interview can be a little awkward to figure out if you re feeling less than confident When unsure of what to do with your hands rest them loosely clasped on your lap or the table in front of you Avoid fidgeting with a pen your face your hair or anything else as this conveys nervousness and anxiety Also be sure to avoid folding your

    maybe you ve just distracted yourself The conversational pit where you re still talking and talking and talking and the pit only grows deeper Nowhere is the pit more unwelcome than during an interview If you find yourself in a pit do not despair There is an all purpose phrase you can use to save your dignity as well as the interview As helpful as the phrase is however it s just as helpful to avoid the pit in the first place if possible First and foremost the purpose of an interview is to determine if your resume is in fact accurate and you are able to perform the functions of the job Most interviewers will ask you a series of behavior based questions in which you are asked to provide examples of times you did this that or the other When you are providing the details behind the question your best bet is to remember Who What When and How Where one of the 5 W s is usually irrelevant and Why can lead to too much backstory and the pit Another purpose of the interview is to give the interviewer a chance to get to know you and see if you are a cultural fit The reverse is true as well This is your chance to see if this company is one in which you want to work Because of this you may be asked questions about the type of environment you like your favorite previous boss company or least favorite Stick to job relevant points if possible and especially try to avoid mentioning any of the HR Forbidden zones like religion marital status etc Here too it is easy to get carried away and find yourself rambling on trivial concerns as a desire to be thorough inadvertently
