Please check out this fantastic article by Military Hire with our president, Matt Warzel, as a contributor – How to Prepare Resumes

I was fortunate enough to be featured by the fine folks over at MilitaryHire for their latest article, “How to Prepare Resumes.”

My take?

Resumes tend to be organized in a fairly standard format and recruiters, HR managers, and hiring managers are familiar with that format. Making it easy for them to find exactly what they’re looking for when reviewing your resume can help you stand out.

I recommended the following order:

  • Contact information (name, email, phone, city/state)
  • Summary
  • Key skills/technical aptitude
  • Accomplishments
  • Experience
  • Education
  • Certification
  • Affiliation
  • Volunteerism

Focus on Results

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 want and what you offer. Make sure to not write your experience as task-based, but rather quantifiable and bottom-line driven. This will make sure you are letting the employers know that you are concerned with what they are concerned with—either making them money or saving them money.

Getting noticed is half the battle when seeking new job opportunities. Make sure you’re following resume preparation best practices and putting your resume where it’s likely to be noticed by employers looking for candidates like you.
