What makes a good resume?

How to write a resume

One of the biggest mistakes job-seekers make is thinking that a resume is simply a list of their prior work history and education.  Properly done, a resume not only sells the job-seeker to their prospective employer, but at the same time can make the employer ask themselves how they have survived without this person so far!

The most important thing to remember when writing a good resume is, strangely, not to be too modest.  Your resume is your first and sometimes only chance to make a strong impression so it’s really important to make sure that you sell yourself in the best possible way.  Humans generally have an inbuilt psyche that steers them away from self-promotion but when it’s your future career depending on it, sometimes we need to push this inbuilt urge to the back of our mind and focus on bringing out and promoting what we do and have done best.  The best way to do this is to engage a professional resume writer.  They can help you draw out your experiences and portray yourself in the best possible light; sometimes focussing on areas or traits that you yourself would have glossed over or left out completely thinking that they were irrelevant.
