Resume Tips for Job Seekers

With more than 25 years of experience, Alpha Rae Personnel, Inc., has become a respected name in the professional staffing field. In addition to assisting businesses with their hiring and staffing needs, Alpha Rae Personnel works with job candidates to help them maximize their chances of professional success.

One of the biggest factors in a person’s success in obtaining a career position is how the person presents his or her experience and qualifications on a resume. Two candidates might have similar backgrounds and skills, but one with a substandard resume might get passed over in favor of the other candidate. There are a number of ways to ensure your resume has maximum impact.

First, make sure that your resume does not contain grammatical errors or typos, which present an air of unprofessionalism. Proofread your resume carefully, and make sure all information, including the contact information, is correct. Additionally, review how you present your experience. Weak resumes highlight job duties, rather than the overarching purpose of the work you performed. Employers want to know what you have achieved and how you could be an asset to them, not a laundry list of what you did in past positions. Finally, be specific in highlighting what you achieved for the companies previously served.
