Ah, good old resumes. A long standing tradition of the hiring world. This piece of paper holds all the vital information that might get your foot in the door for a potential interview. Yet most of us don’t know how to write a good one or aren’t sure what makes a resume stand out from the crowd.
Isn’t it weird that we go through our whole education life learning all the different subjects our world has to offer but we never once learn anything about writing a proper resume? The key that holds your career together…
Most of us (at one point, myself included) never knew how to write or structure a proper resume. In my case, I had to search online and ask friends and family who had already done their resumes for advice but the problem was, no one gave me a proper answer. The information was all over the place. Some of the advice I got told me to make my resume fit in 1 page, others told me that I needed to detail EXACTLY what it was that I did at my previous jobs (which would mean my resume would be a bazillion pages).
At that point in time, I wished that there was someone with proper industry knowledge to help me write a better resume. I know there were people there who do it as a business but I was a broke ass student and didn’t have the cash to drop so easily to get my resume professionally reviewed. So I tried to do all that I could on my own in the hopes of finding the best resume format that employers actually bothered about.
Suffice it to say, I wasn’t successful as my first job was landed by me begging a friend to help me reach out to her network and find me something. So that was the last time I trusted my resume and the document was shunned to the dark corners of my computer to gather cobwebs.
Fast-track a few years and here we are. Being a part of TribeHired and keeping in contact with employers and talent has taught me a thing or two about what makes a resume actually stand out. By that I mean, what actually makes a resume worthy of being read by an employer.
And this is where we come to the purpose of this blog post. I want to extend the help I never got in my early days of job hunting to all the people in desperate need of some resume writing help. FOR FREE.
