An employer can receive hundreds of resumes in response to an desired position. For every hundreds of resumes an employer receives, only a few resumes stand on the winning path in interview from the crowd. Want your resume to shine in the eyes of the employer you want to attract?
Start by including a well-written resume cover letter with the resume. Then, follow these resume guidelines to create an interview winning resume that is head and shoulders above the crowd.
- Formatting and feel
Your resume, at first glance, can impress or depress the employer/selection committee. this is due to the Lots of open space in between paragraphs and words,
Resume should be
- Clear, easy-to-read font such as 12 point ,Preferred font is Arial

2. Avoid Grammatical mistakes
You will likely grow tired of hearing this but correct spelling, appropriate grammar, no missing words, and no typing mistakes make your resume an employer-pleaser right out of the starting gate.
An error-free resume is rare. Indeed, some hiring managers will not further consider your candidacy if they find even one mistake.
you need to avoid Grammatical mistakes because
- Every mistake makes me pause and think.
- Every mistake makes me question your carefulness, care, and attention to detail. Don’t make me pause; don’t make me think.
3.Write and customize an “objective” for each job and employer. The objective is your opportunity to connect your skills, experience, traits, and job requirements with those the employer is seeking. Read the job posting carefully and you can pick out exactly what the employer believes he needs. Don’t settle for a lame, “I seek a challenging opportunity to utilize my skills with a progressive employer who will provide opportunities for growth.”
- In response to an ad for a marketing specialist, I received this customized objective: “I am seeking a position as a marketing specialist in a growing, environmentally conscious company that will utilize my current skills in the development of advertising and other marketing materials and website design and writing. At the same time, I hope to gain experience in market research, Internet competitive analysis, and market segmentation.” Who do you think I called?
The era is changed in 21st century,era of instant messaging, email, and cell phones, there is absolutely no reason to make contacting you difficult for the potential employer.
As per market research over half the resumes receives with no contact information except a home phone number. Give the potential employer your cell phone number, even if you have to buy a mobile for your job search.
5.Education statements matter. State dates of attendance, majors, minors, and degrees. Don’t make me guess whether you have a degree or just took a few classes. I will figure it out and it ticks me off to have to figure it out
6.Do include a section that lists awards and other recognition. President of the Junior Class, Secretary of the Synchronized Swim Team, four year merit scholarship winner, or college economics prize winner will catch my eye much faster than a resume without awards and recognition. (Of course, you’d include this section on a resume only if you have an award or recognition to list.)
