Developing a resume is one of the first steps taken towards finding a job. For those who are not native speakers writing a resume in English can be very challenging and might require a lot of research and proofreading. Your heading should include your full name, address with the postal code, phone number and email. If your email address does not look professional, change it before including it on your resume. Dont mention anything personal that is not related to the job. Age, date of birth, marital status, and social insurance number should not be mentioned at all. The use of photos is not recommended either unless your personal appearance is a key to this particular job. For example, TV host, movie actor. Your career objective statement should be short, clear and to the point. It is an objective relevant to your current resume not to your personal plans for the next five years. Dont forget to mention the specific position you are interested in, and a professional summary, proving that you are qualified for this job.
The use of action verbs and numbers helps to demonstrate accomplishment, especially when it comes to the description of your qualifications and work experience. Simply listing your duties and responsibilities is not enough add some impact to your work experience, mention the numbers of new clients you attracted to a company, the results of the campaign you implemented, the percentage of increase in annual sales you contributed to, etc. Remember that your resume may be read by a computer. Resume-scanning software is set up in a way that it picks up keywords and industry jargon related to a certain job posting. Before writing a resume, re-read the job description and write down all the buzzwords you see. These are usually nouns. It will help you to create an effective resume and cover letter.
A one-page resume is a commonly-used recommendation which is hardly realistic to follow. Dont feel that you must limit the resume to one page, think about the most relevant information you better include on this page. If you do use a second page, include a header with your name and contact information at the top of this page. Be sure to leave some white space on your resume crowding all your information on to one page makes it difficult to highlight the important information. Prepare the list of your references in advance as almost every employer asks for it, if not up front, then after the first interview or two. The most common practice is putting the phrase References available upon request at the bottom of your resume. Your references contacts must be good as they will certainly be checked! For references prepare a separate page with the same header you used for the resume.
