In order to make a positive first impression and capture your potential work at home company’s attention, it is important that you have a well-presented resume. If your resume does not catch your potential employer’s attention and make a great first impression, you might not have the opportunity to be fully considered for a role. You should think of your resume as your own personal promotional advertisement that should include ample amount of information to sell your skills and experience.
Make sure your resume is tailored to the job you are applying for. Some savvy job seekers have multiple versions of their resumes that are tailored specifically to the positions they are interested in. You should customize your resume to draw out your specific experiences that you have that are relatable to the job that you are applying for. This includes using keywords related to the skills that the company is looking for from their job description.
Remember, no matter how impressive your professional qualifications may be, if your resume has spelling errors or typos then your chances of getting hired have just decreased immensely. Use spell check, and ask someone that you trust to read through your resume for potential misspellings or typos.
We recommend keeping your resume simple and well organized. Choose a basic font type and size so that it is easy for the hiring manager to read. There is no need for a fancy font as the hiring manager will not be paying attention to that, and it might actually distract from the content. While you want your resume to be polished and complete, completely filling up the page with text can sometimes lead to your resume looking too busy.
