Welcome to another brand new blog post from your community of apartments for rent in Owasso! This week, we’re talking resume tips. If you’ve held the same job for quite some time, it’s probably time to refresh your resume so you can land your next gig.


We’ve got some tips that you can use to get your dream job, whether it’s your first job out of school or the next step in your career. In the post below, we’ll be sharing four resume tips that will help you create a resume that stands out from the rest. The most important thing to do while making your resume is to put yourself in the shoes of the hiring manager. These people look through thousands of resumes each day, and all they want to do is see one come across their desk that catches their eye. If you can make your resume do that, you’ll have a foot in the door.


Without further delay, let’s dive right into this week’s blog post! Oh, and when you’re done reading through it, please be sure to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at your community of Owasso apartments!


Pull directly from the job description


There are two reasons you should be tailoring your resume based on the job description. First, a lot of resume have to pass through scanning software before they make it to an actual human. That software looks for certain keywords, and those keywords can often be found in the job description. Secondly, pulling from the job description allows you to use the exact same language that the job-poster used. You’ll be far more likely to get the gig if you’re already using the same terminology as the employer.


Tailor your resume every time


It’s tempting to apply to as many jobs as possible by using the same resume every time, but there’s something to be said for tailoring your resume each time. If you’re going to apply to a bunch of jobs, you might as well make each resume the best it can be. One easy way to tailor each resume is to change your objective statement at the top of the page. That way, you don’t have to edit every job description every time.


Put the important stuff up top


If a job requires certain skills, experience, or a degree, that information should be at the top of your resume. Hiring managers are busy, and they don’t have time to scan every resume from top to bottom. Instead of making the hiring manager scroll to the bottom of the page to find that relevant experience, put it up top! It’s okay to break from the traditional norms of putting your experience in chronological order if it means putting the important information up top. Try this out next time you’re re-working your resume, and make sure you get yourself noticed!
