Resumes are one of the most important marketing tools used during your job search. An effective resume will increase your chances of getting an interview. Use resumes as part of your ad campaign to market your skills, education, and experience to employers.
Employers may use resumes to:
- Screen out applicants and determine who gets an interview
- Identify your skills, education and experience
- Evaluate your written communication skills
- Use as an agenda during the interview
Employers appreciate applicants who take the time and effort to present a well written resume. Make sure your resume is easy to read, concise, accurate, and positive. Tailor your resume to fit the job description. Include the same key words, skills, and qualities that are used in the job description to make it easier for employers to see that you are qualified.
