Tips and Tricks To Make Your Resume Stand Out


Include a "related skills" section in your resume.
Certain companies are looking for individuals with very specific skills, which means they may be skimming resumes for specific words on your resume. These words they're looking for are describing certain skills you may have that they need from someone to fill this position. This is why is it so important to have some sort of "related skills" section in your resume. This is the perfect place where you can list skills pertinent to the position. For example, you may have expert customer service skills and superior sales skills. If those skills are relevant to the position you are applying for then include them in a "related skills" section near the top of your resume so they can stand out to your hiring manager.

Be specific when you list your accomplishments on your resume.
As you list your job tasks underneath each position you held within your career history, word them as accomplishments rather than tasks. Be specific. For example, if you were a sales representative for a Fortune 500 company in your past and hold the record for the most sales made for the year of 2018, be sure to list that. Things like this can really stand out to a hiring manager who may be looking for someone with strong sales skills.

Don't include jobs on your resume that have nothing to do with the job you are applying for.
You don't have to list every single job you have ever held on your resume, especially if it has nothing to do with the job you are applying for. For example, let's say you are applying for a Legal Assistant position with a well-known law firm. If in your past you used to wait tables at a local restaurant, you don't necessarily need to list that you were a server or waitress on your resume, just because that doesn't have anything to do with being a legal assistant.
