Make sure your resume is in chronological order
The employer wants to see your current role first as this is the most relevant & the biggest indication of your ability. Also when you are describing your experiences or skills, list the most relevant ones to this role first.
Don’t leave out important information
Make sure every job on your CV has your title, duties performed & commencement & completion date. Also double check that all of your contact details are clearly stated on the first page of your resume.
Use bullet points
Employers seldom have the time to read long paragraphs of text. Use bullet points to describe your experiences, educational background and professional objectives.
Include your goal & where you would like to see yourself in 5 years time
Including professional goals can help you by giving employers an idea of where you are going, and how you want to arrive there. This allows them to imagine how you could fit into their team and culture longer term.
Try to keep this limited as employers do not want to spend their time going through copious amounts of pages trying to work out what is relevant & what is not. As long as the necessary information is there, the shorter the better.
Make sure you have spell checked your resume & get someone else to run their eyes over it for a second opinion. Check that spacing is equal between paragraphs and make sure the whole document has been typed up in the same simple text style & size throughout.
