Résumé Makeover Tips

Career coach and  résumé expert Kim Marino has some awesome résumé tips designed to make you stand out in your job search.  Getting to the interview is the main purpose of your résumé.  How can you make it pop leaving the employer begging for more?  

1) First Kim says search sites like indeed.com for keywords associated with the career field you’re looking for.  Add those keywords to the top of your résumé under contact information making it easy for the reviewer to scan.  

2) How about the meat?  Kim recommends avoiding the words “responsible for” instead replacing that with the real accomplishments you’ve made via bullets.  Be sure these accomplishments match the career you’re attempting to get.  

3) What if your past job experience doesn’t match the new field you desire?  Try to pull out specific skills from jobs you’ve done.  Or even better include non-profit or volunteer projects that may include the leadership skills you need.
