The job market is super-competitive right now, with 6 million people unemployed, according to the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics data. While those numbers may seem intimidating, itΒ isΒ possible toΒ land a job in the current climateΒ β€” but you may have to make an extra effort to stand out from the competition.

Since your resume is usually the first thing a recruiter or hiring manager will see, it’s smart to focus on ensuring that yours stands out from the pack. GOBankingRates spoke to recruiters, career experts and professional resume writers to get their tips on how to get your resume noticed.Β Here’s how to improve your resume so that it gets recruiters’ attention.

My take:

Make a Strong First Impression

The typical resume is one to two pages, but a recruiter might not make it past the top of the first page when they are quickly scanning through hundreds of applications. That’s why it’s so important that the top half of your resume is chock-full of relevant β€” and impressive β€” information.

β€œThe 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 want and what you offer, any key buzzwords 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,” said Matthew Warzel, certified professional resume writer and president ofΒ MJW Careers, LLC.
