As a leading Houston staffing agency, Clayton Services gets hundreds of resumes each day. There are ways to ensure that your resume rises above the rest when applying for jobs.
Following these simple tips will help your resume stand out:
1. Make sure your resume is typo free
Even though you may have used spell check, make sure you proofread your resume for typos and/or grammatical errors before submitting it to a job position.
2. Include your current contact information
Be sure to keep your contact information up to date. The last thing you want to do is be unable to be contacted when a great position becomes available.
3. Update your dates of employment
Oftentimes people will forget to update their dates of employment on their resume. Updating your dates of employment is vital after leaving or changing positions because it allows recruiters to quickly gather important information.
4. Organize your information
A good resume is one that is well-organized and flows efficiently. A brief summary statement followed by employment history, educational background and then any additional skills or references is a good basic and safe format to follow.
5. Be ready for a phone screening
You've applied to multiple positions and now you are waiting for a call back. Prepare for the initial phone screening by using a professional voice each and every time you answer the phone. You never know when your next chance to make a first impression may present itself.
Following these basic steps will help you to be prepared to submit your resume to job postings and ensure that you do not miss out on any opportunities due to simple mistakes.
