Creative Ways To Get Your Resume Noticed Quicker

In today’s job market, it can be painfully difficult to find a high quality and well paying job. Due to the large number of people looking for work, employers can be particularly picky about who they choose to hire. For someone that has an average or below average work and education history, this can make finding a job far more difficult.

Being able to differentiate yourself from other job candidates is a skill that is at least as important as your actual job or educational experience. Unless a job is perfectly suited for your precise work and educational history, it is unlikely that you will be an exact match for what an employer is looking for. It is up to you then to make sure that employers see exactly who they need to see in both your resume and your in-person interview.

Making Your Resume Adapt

The key to making a less than stellar resume more impressive is to be more creative with what you choose to include in the resume. For example, if your experience is limited to being an office assistant, you can state a number of skills and experience that come along with being an office assistant that aren’t normally considered. For example, the ability to read and understand internal office memos and documents, how to use to full suite of Office applications, customer service and other customer interactions, and numerous others. It is important that you tailor your resume to the specific company you are applying to in order to maximize the chance of getting an interview.

Resume Is a Sales Pitch

When writing the content of your resume, remember that ultimately what you are doing is selling yourself to potential employees. You should try to use words that are exciting and engage the reader as opposed to a simple laundry list of facts and history about you. Keep in mind that everyone will be submitting a resume, what are you going to do to make yours stand out?
