Resume Outline that Creates Results - Best Resume and Interview Training

Dreaming of a resume that creates results? Here are the four (4) major components of a resume outline that will surely give you the best chance for a job interview:

Professional Summary. The resume professional summary should be designed to hook the reader. Its purpose is to capture the reader’s attention and keep them on the page long as possible. The professional summary replaces the objective statement and should be two (2) or three (3) powerful sentences that summarize who you are and what you can do to help the company you are applying to.

Areas of Expertise or Skills. This is the second section and is a list of short one (1) to five (5) keywords that are industry and job description specific. Place these ten to twenty bulleted keywords in 2 to 3 columns.

Work experience. This part of the resume outline should state your previous work experiences. Depending on the amount of experience you have, it can also include your volunteer work, community or campus activities, and your internships. Use brief powerful statements describing your duties, and accomplishments. Avoid using long narrative paragraphs to describe your previous jobs.

List the achievements you have made and have contributed to your previous job. Try to add percentages and numbers to support your accomplishments whenever possible. If you lack experience, try to include your achievements during college and some personal skills you have. It would also be better to highlight these things by using functional resume.

In this section include: the position held, the name of the company or organization, and the dates you worked there. The work experience should be written in reverse chronological order.

Education. Make sure you mention your degree and the name of the school or institution you graduated from. If you received any awards, scholarships, and honors, make sure you include these as well. If you do not have a college degree, make sure you include any training or certifications you have received.

There are some other components that you could include in your resume outline, but these mentioned are by far the most significant. Improve on these sections and customize them to the position you are applying for and it will increase your chances in getting interviewed.
