Hey there, job seekers! Today, we’re diving into resume writing. Yep, that piece of paper that stands between you and your dream job. We’ve all been there, staring at a blank page like a deer in headlights.  But never fear, I am here to help, with my top tips for writing a killer resume without losing your mind.

  1. Start with a Brain Dump

The best way to start is to dump everything onto the page. List down all your experiences, skills, achievements, even that summer job where you accidentally overfilled the sink and turned the kitchen into a foam party (true story! But let’s keep that off the resume 😉

  1. Tailor, Tailor, Tailor

Nope, I’m not talking about your snazzy outfit, I’m talking about customizing your resume for each job you apply to. It’s like dating – you have to show the employer you’re interested. So, make sure your resume matches the job description. If they want someone who knows Excel like the back of their hand, make sure that skill is front and center.

  1. Skip the Fancy Fonts

I know, I know, Comic Sans is just so fun! But trust me, when it comes to resumes, less is more. Stick to clean, professional fonts like Arial, Calibri, or Times New Roman. Your future employer won’t appreciate having to decipher your resume.

  1. Show, Don’t Tell

Instead of saying you’re a “great team player,” give examples of when you collaborated with others to achieve awesome results. Employers love concrete examples.

  1. Proofread Like Your Life Depends on It

Nothing kills your chances faster than typos on a resume. If you can’t be bothered to proofread your own resume, why should an employer bother to hire you? So, read it backward, read it out loud, go to poetry night at your local coffee shop and wow them with your career boosting prose. Just read it – and make sure it’s employment worthy.

  1. Keep it Simple!

Your resume isn’t the place to showcase your creative skills with funky borders and clip art. Keep the design clean and minimalistic. You want the focus to be on your qualifications, not on the neon font you thought was a good idea at 3 am.

  1. Don’t Forget Your Contact Info

Seems obvious, right? You’d be surprised how many people forget to include their contact information. Double-check that you’ve got your phone number and email address listed correctly.

So there you have it, my top tips for writing a killer resume without losing your mind. Now go forth and conquer the job market, one perfectly crafted resume at a time!
