Resumes matter, don’t let anyone tell you any different. Why? Well, first and foremost, they can get you job interviews. Furthermore, resumes give employers a summary of your professional career. It tells your story; who you are, what you want to do, and what you aim to achieve. How else are employers supposed to consider you as a potential employee without reviewing your resume.
So, before you start (furiously) applying to jobs be sure to update your resume and polish it to perfection. Recruitment experts believe that outside opinions matter. So, try to get peers or someone that has been working full time to review your resume. Through your own eyes, the resume may already look good, but, what are others’ opinions about it? Accept constructive criticism and take them into consideration.
At AIP, we understand that a resume is a door for opportunities. Hence, we offer to help improve and enhance your resume to perfection.
Is it better to tailor your resume towards the job description? Yes, it is. Tailoring your resume shows that you have actually dedicated some time to the job. You clearly did some research about the position and most importantly, your resume is not just something “basic”. Tailor your resume the right way and it puts you and your application in a good position.
