Having a visually appealing and clear resume can go a long way to getting you an interview for your dream opportunity. Using an easy-to-read format and bullet pointsis a shortcut to getting the hiring professional’s attention quicker, wrote Bunmi Epega, Talent Partner at Discovered MENA.

Great topic! The resume needs to be logical first and foremost. If the reader is wrinkling their forehead, you’ve lost the initial battle.

Use role/industry research as a way to spot relevant keywords (for the core competencies and summary sections), role responsibilities (for the experience section), and important transferable contributions (for the accomplishments section) for inclusion on your resume.

Next, make sure it has optimized keywords, a summary that preaches your USP and value, quantifiable content (even if there are no metrics, but metrics are preferred), and a format/layout that adheres to ATS mandates. Think experience content as 3 buckets: relatable/transferrable, data-driven KPIs and unique wins such as awards, speeches or media appearances.

The key to standing out among the competition is to ensure you set the tone in the first top half of the resume with what you offer, any key skills that speak to your abilities to transition into those new roles seamlessly, and any transferable skills and accomplishments that directly relate to this new role.

How can you be the Tylenol to the hiring team’s pains, and how can you make their lives easier? Convey this in as little verbiage as possible.
