Title: How to Make Your Resume Stand Out

Modern PowerPoint Presentation
Everyone wants to believe that when they send a
job application and resume to a prospective
employer, someone on the receiving end
painstakingly reviews the whole document. After
all, you spent hours and hours putting the job
application together. The reality to far
different. Chances are your job application and
resume will only be given a cursory glance, so
you need to make it count. How do job
application and resume writers produce a resume
that stands out? Job application writing is
difficult enough and so you want to ensure you
get your resume right. Here are our top tips.
How to Make Your Resume Stand Out
2. Quantify your past Successes
1. Use the right Language
3. Highlight your awards and Recognition
4. Show how you have been a Team Player
5. Get Some help
Use the right Language
Job application writers use certain kinds of
verbs to describe their successes in previous
jobs and how this will make them stand out.
Commonly referred to as power verbs, they
included words such as "increased," "initiated,"
"resolved," and "improved. When describing your
previous work, start off with these kinds of
words. Reume writers know that power verbs go
beyond simply stating your duties to emphasizing
how you produced results. Speaking of results
Quantify your past Successes
Numbers talk! So, if you can provide some
statistics to support your past achievements that
will really make you stand out. Good job
application writers know that if you can show an
increase in sales volume, profit margin,
donations generated, savings on expenses,
expanding memberships, grants secured, or
something else, you will highlight the numeric
value you can add to a company. A statement
like, Developed a marketing plan that resulted
in a 10 increase in donations received
annually, really speaks powerfully to your
prospective employer.
Highlight your awards and Recognition
Ever been employee of the month? Mention it.
Got any other formal awards? Top salesperson?
Most new clients? Have you ever been selected,
elected or recognized in some way? Make sure you
highlight it! Good resume writers always
highlight their successes.
Show how you have been a Team Player
Most organisations value leadership and teamwork
very highly. When writing job descriptions of
your previous jobs, try to include examples of
how each job required you to demonstrate these
skills. Job application writers incorporate words
that show formal and informal leadership and
teamwork, such as "led," "mentored," "drew
consensus," "collaborated," and "sought input."
