How can you get your resume noticed amongst the crowd? In this article, industry expert Jan Plessner shares her simple and effective recipe for creating a great resume.

Last month I shared some pro tips on how to build a rock-solid resume. You can read that article here. Your resume is your calling card and what you include or don’t include tells a story. You want to make sure it is clean, concise, and accurate.

It can be time consuming to scour the Internet to find a resume that you like. Then, once you do find something that looks like a good fit, there’s nothing worse than realizing it is in a locked pdf or jpg format.

To save you time, I’m sharing my current favorite resume template here in this download. When there is a lot of content to share, I decrease the font size on the candidate’s name, section headings and job headings to allow for more room.

Simple and easy to read is key to creating a user-friendly and professional resume.

Remember, the “Needle Movers” are key. Your ability to draft and include impressive bullet points that describe in detail how you positively impacted your current/former employer’s bottom line can be the difference between an okay resume and a great resume.

Friendly Reminders

  • For dates, use month and year
  • Don’t forget to include job locations (city and state)
  • Education may include classes, workshops, and/or other types of training
  • Activities may include volunteer work, hobbies, awards, or anything you have accomplished along the way
  • Don’t be afraid to include a touch of personal information in that last section
  • Don’t be afraid to go to a second page
  • Don’t list your entire job description
  • Dates for education not necessary
  • Lastly, a resume should be 100% factual. Do not embellish facts or play with dates.
  • No quicker way to disqualify yourself than to be caught in a small white lie on a resume.
