Learn how to make your job resume shine in this article. Here you will learn how to use headings and titles to improve your resume...and your chances of landing a job interview!
In order to get your next job interview you must learn how to use titles and headings to make your resume shine.
Every employer will receive hundreds of resumes which might otherwise all look the same. You want to be able to grab his or her attention in a matter of seconds. In order to do this you should integrate job titles and skill headings which match the job you are looking for and relate to the potential job.
Employers simply don't have the time or the desire to read through your job descriptions in order to verify that you have the skills which they need. So it's your responsibility to make that as conspicuous as possible in your Job Resume.
You can do that by showing them the design of your resume. You want to highlight the most important aspects of your education, your skills, and your work experience. You want employers to look at those skills and abilities at first glance.
In order to get your content to sell, you need to grab the employer's attention. You don't want your description of skills and abilities to go unnoticed because it is these descriptions which are responsible for generating interviews for you as well as generating salary offers.
For example if you are a sales person and have been a part of a tremendous growth story in your organization they you may want to highlight the salient points in the title itself. For example instead of saying something like "Brought Sales of $xxxxxx to the Company Last Year!" you could say something like "A Dynamic Sales Person Who Contributed $xxxxxx to the Bottom line Working alongside the Top Management!"
This demonstrates that not only are you qualified, but that you have the skills to work on your own with a larger demand volume, and for the top staff. This will show you are more qualified than other sales people out there at your level and that you are worth a higher salary. But most important of all it does what your job resume is supposed to do - get you the interview call.
Having a great title ensure that you have got your potential employer interested in your resume! Now that he is in you just cannot keep him interested with shallow content. Therefore you must include all the necessary details pertinent to the job in your resume apart from the basic things like your personal details, professional qualifications, experience in the field in which you are applying for, achievements if any. It always helps if you can get somebody well known face in your industry to leave a feedback or comment about your professional and capabilities that you can highlight in your resume.
By taking care of these basic yet very important aspects of designing a job resume you can exponentially improve your chances of getting an interview call.
