Make your resume
Create focal points

The hiring manager is typically flooded with resume applications. So you only have about 2 minutes of their attention span.

Here are some ways you can draw their attention to the important things:

  • Put the most relevant experiences at the top, don’t worry about chronology.
  • Bold the important parts. Don’t go overboard here.
  • Use numbers and awards to draw attention.
  • Remove irrelevant experiences.
Use numbers

Ever heard of the term “A Picture is Worth A Thousand Words”? Well, numbers are worth a thousand words on Resumes.

Here are some ways you can use numbers:

  • Consistently outperformed sales targets by 10%
  • Supported over 4 functional areas with financial analysis
  • Increased customer satisfaction rating to 8.6/10
Match keywords

Hiring managers will scan your resume to see if you match any of those keywords and sometimes in higher-demand positions, they will do this through a bot.

Take and add keywords from the job description to your resume. Create a skill section and put some keywords in there.
