When you’re applying for a competitive job opening, your resume is everything. It sounds dramatic, but the way you present yourself on paper can truly make or break whether you get an interview from that organization. If you are desperate to land your dream job, you want to start with your resume.  Once that is as good as it can be, everything else falls into place. When the document is updated and clearly worded, it’s much more likely that it will earn the attention of a hiring manager.

Studies show that even tiny mistakes (did you actually mean “their” or did you really mean “there?”) on a resume can immediately land you in the “no thanks” pile. Not only that, but many companies rely on electronic scanners and parsers to sort through the hundreds of resumes that come in. This means that regardless of whether you’re qualified or not, if you don’t incorporate the proper keywords into your resume, you may not get a second look from the person making the hiring decisions. There are dozens of other tricks like these that can stop even the most qualified person from getting an interview.

In addition to this problem, just because you’re great at writing blog posts or papers for your Master’s class, doesn’t mean that you can craft a resume that does your experience and passion for the field justice. If you look at your resume and don’t love what you see, or don’t even know how to approach this aspect of your job hunt, the team at Chic Resumes by Grammar Chic is here to help.
