In the post below, we’ll be sharing some of the modern resume tips that you should know before applying to any jobs. With the advent of online applications, every job opening has more applicants than ever before. The competition is stiff, and resumes have to be near-perfect to get through to a hiring manager.
We know that all our residents are extremely intelligent and qualified for most positions they’re applying for, but we still thought we’d offer some advice. The tips below are simple, but they could be the difference between getting an interview and getting a, “thanks but no thanks.”
The job application process isn’t easy, but we hope that the tips in the blog post below help you end your search sooner rather than later. Without further delay, let’s dive right into the blog post below! When you’re done reading through the post, please feel free to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at your community of Daytona apartments. Unless, of course, you don’t feel like helping the competition.
Include a link to your LinkedIn
This is a small thing, but it will make a big difference and show employers that you know how the modern job application process works. Whether we like it or not, most employers will look at your LinkedIn and make as many judgements off that as they do off your resume. With that in mind, it’s important that you put as much work into your LinkedIn profile as you put into your resume. You never know which one will carry more weight with an employer.
Write company descriptions
Unless your work experience is with well-known corporations, it’s important to include company descriptions for each company that you’ve worked for. This will give your future employer a better understanding of your background. This is especially helpful if you’re applying to a company that’s in the same industry as the previous companies that you’ve worked for.
Make sure your resume is keyword-optimized
Yes, even resumes have to adapt to this world of SEO and keywords. Large corporations often use resume-scanning software to filter through the thousands of applications that they receive. If your resume doesn’t have the right keywords, it won’t even make it through the scanning software and on to a real person.
The best way to ensure your resume has the right keywords is to pull words from the job description. Also, make sure they keywords are closer to the top of your resume than they are to the bottom. This isn’t as important for the scanners, but hiring managers often only look at the top-third of the resume before making their decision.
With that, we’ve reached the end of our list of resume tips. We hope these tips help you land your dream job, and we wish you good luck on your search!
