Dare to Be Unique – You may increase your chance of getting hired and reduce the risk of being rejected. There are new styles that you can use depending on the industry or position you desire. Usually printed in black ink, resumes now come in a variety of colors, formats, and sizes. Ever seen one that is folded like a brochure or leaflet? You might think it wouldn't be possible. But aside from this interesting idea, it is more likely to catch the attention of employers. Folding in leaflet style is usually done by those who are applying in the marketing or advertising industry. If you are applying as a graphic designer, you can present one in comic layout. It's very unique, right? But the important details must still be there. How about as a copywriter? You can make use of a font that looks like it has been typed from a typewriter.
Copy-Pasting is a Big No-No. It's not advisable to copy another person's work. In writing your resume, you can only get ideas but not copy the whole thing. Editing can be a little okay but make sure that what you have is different from the original copy. Free resume samples have much to offer. Modify to create a copy that is personal and unique. Employers and recruiters have already seen hundreds of applications. Face the fact that they are bored in seeing almost the same terminologies, sentences, and phrases all over again. So instead of reading everything, they may just put your application aside. Always remember, ”First impressions last.” Surely, you wouldn't want your application to go to waste.
Some resume samples can teach you the basic ones. The first thing on your resume should be your name. It should be bold and with a larger font than the rest of the text. Make sure that your contact details are listed clearly so employers can easily get in touch with you. Include your full name, street address, city, state, and zip, home phone number, cell phone number, and email address. Resume samples will also show you that choosing the right font is important. In writing a resume use a basic font that is easy to read. First of all make sure that your fonts are big enough. The smaller you should go is 11 points, but 12 is probably safer. Do not use capital letters all over the place; remember that your goal is to communicate a message as fast and as clearly as possible.
