Employers today are not that interested in what you want. You need to tell them what you can do for them. The most effective way to achieve this is by replacing your objective statement with an experience summary. An experience summary is a list of skills you have that are needed for the job you're applying for.
Spelling and grammar mistakes are a big turnoff for hiring managers. Triple check every headline and bullet point. Remove or reword any sentence that doesn't flow. Don't mix up tenses or third and first-person perspectives.
Avoid information that can lead one to discriminate against you, including age, sex, religion, marital status, and ethnicity. In fact, some employers are forced to ignore your resume if it contains such information because of the chance that they may be
accused of discrimination later in the process.
Employers are not interested in achievements or abilities that are not applicable to the job. Also, be cautious about listing your associations or volunteer work that is irrelevant or may be in conflict with the potential employer. You can find this information while conducting research on the company.
Most employers today expect you to be familiar with basic computer programs, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. So, don't waste valuable space on your resume listing them. When choosing which software programs and technologies to include on your resume, think about
which ones will help you succeed in the job you're applying for.
Resumes need to have enough detail to support your positioning so a two- to three-page resume is acceptable. But, your resume shouldn't be so long that it works against you.
