Take It Out

Resumés are a great tool to help get you get in, but before submitting a resumé don’t get lost in translation by adding everything including the kitchen sink on that piece of white paper.

Don’t discourage a hiring manager away from your resumé by adding salary requirements, irrelevant jobs, and social media profiles unless it is relevant to the job. Remember to list information that adds value and not take it away.

Although job descriptions are a great tool to draw from, don’t answer each job posting with the same exact resumé. Your resumé should be fluent and organic adding subtle keywords and phrases to make it stand out.

Incorporating these small changes will get your resumé noticed more by hiring managers.
