It is very rare that someone will sit down on his computer, breeze away on his keyboard and come out with a very good resume. That rarity belongs to people, who are well trained, exceptionally gifted or has composed lots of resumes in the service of another.

For most, resume writing takes agonizing hours and revisions in order to come out with one that would be acceptable. Even then some resume writing guides could help.

Having taken the time to determine your strengths, the field of expertise and what job or position that you want to take, the next thing that you do is to write your objective.

The Objective must state clearly what you are applying for. In short positive and upbeat language (avoid exaggerations), state the position you desire and the skill and the experience that makes you qualified for it. The objective is your opening line and like many advertisements, it should be meaningful and packed with words without sounding superfluous that will hold your reader’s attention. If that fails, you can bet that your resume takes a highway to the bin and the one who is scanning picks up another.

The body of the resume should revolve around strengthening your objective. Remember though that the one who is scanning the resume are looking for specific qualification and experience that should match the job item at hand. Because of the number of resumes on his desk, it will most likely take a maximum of 30 seconds for your resume to be decided on. You should then avoid lengthy paragraphs and explanations. You will get plenty of that during the interview.

The body of your resume should as much as possible be bulleted and at the very least, match the requirement that the company is looking for.  Design your key phrases to stand out. Better yet, place yourself in the interviewer’s shoes; give him all the necessary information that will possibly be absorbed in 30 seconds. Write what you think is best that the interviewer needed to know. Reserve the details for the interview. The important thing now is to hold his attention and consider your application.

Resume writing has to have action words. To avoid spending much time scanning so many application letters many companies have now designed their computers to pick out only resumes that contain particular keywords. You can have a good clue on this by the advertisement that they posted. Take a hint on that and your chances of being picked out by their system improve.

Lead with your strengths, highlight the positive, make your wordings very readable, check for spelling and end with sincerity.

Once you have come out with a finished resume, read it aloud to yourself. If you stumble somewhere, change the phrase.

If possible have a trusted friend with you and do not accept good comments. To make your resume stand out, you have to revise it until it is excellent.
