If you're anything like me, you're always looking for ways to improve your resume. Whether it's adding more experience, updating your skills, or changing the format, there's always something you can do to make your resume better.
However, there are some things that you might be doing that are actually harming your resume. Here are three things that you might be doing wrong with your resume:
1. You're not tailoring it to the job you're applying for.
When you're applying for a job, you need to make sure that your resume is tailored to that specific position. Hiring managers can tell when you've just sent out the same generic resume to every job you've applied for.
Take the time to read through the job description and include relevant keywords and experience in your resume. This will show the hiring manager that you're a good fit for the position and that you've put in the effort to tailor your resume.
In today's job market, your resume is likely to be scanned by an applicant tracking system (ATS) before it even gets to a human being. This means that it's important to include relevant keywords throughout your resume so that it can be easily found by the ATS.
Look at the job description and include any relevant keywords that you see. You can also try using a keyword research tool to find more keywords that are relevant to your industry and experience.
When you're writing your resume, it's important to be concise and to the point. Hiring managers don't want to wade through a bunch of fluff to find the information they're looking for.
Stick to the facts and don't use flowery language. Get straight to the point and use active language to describe your experience and accomplishments.
If you're making any of these three mistakes with your resume, it's time to fix them. By tailoring your resume, using relevant keywords, and being concise, you can make sure that your resume is in tip-top shape.
