Ten Easy Ways to Improve Your Resume

Katharine Hansen has pointed out some important tips for improving a resume. Resume is the first thing that presents yourself for a job – it is important to get it clear and reader-friendly. Katharine suggested ten practical tips for significant improvements on your resume:

  • Use a bulleted style to make your resume more reader-friendly.
  • Follow “The Resume Ingredients Rule.”
  • Eliminate “responsibilities” words from your resume vocabulary.
  • Eliminate clutter from your resume.
  • Use strong, concrete verbs to describe your jobs, and don’t mix noun and verb phrases.
  • Focus on describing past job activities that highlight the skills you most like to use and want to use in your next job.
  • Don’t fret about the one-page resume rule.
  • Make sure your resume has a sharp focus.
  • Don’t list too much experience on your resume.
  • Be sure the reader will understand all the acronyms and jargon you use in your resume.

I concur on Make sure your resume has a sharp focus. When i scan candidate’s resumes, I am looking for keywords, especially objective statement or summary if they mentioned. Those will save employer’s time and able to highlight your skills or experiences in a pool of candidates.

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
