more tips for your resume

A few more tips for your resume, from Blog Forward:

  1. Put your cell phone number (or work number) on your resume.
  2. Put your email address on the resume, preferably in a “link” format if emailing the resume.
  3. A resume is a marketing piece.
  4. Unless you have a very specific “Objective,” leave it off your resume.
  5. The preferred resume format is chronological order, the positions and responsibilities you’ve had over the years.
  6. Each position listed on the resume should include the years of employment.
  7. Proofread your resume and then have someone else proofread it for you.
  8. Depending on the number of years in the workforce, a one or two page resume is sufficient.
  9. Your resume should be simple and straightforward.
  10. If your resume runs more than one page, do not put page number within the body of the resume since the actual page break will vary depending on the software and display mode of the interviewer’s computer.
  11. Resumes today are typically emailed to an employer and emailed from one person to another within a company. Don’t bother faxing or mailing unless specifically asked.
  12. Cover letters should be kept short and to the point, as they are often not read, especially if lengthy.
