New year, new you, same resume? Not this time. Taking your resume from dull to dazzling can be the key to landing your dream job. An organized, well-designed resume that highlights relevant work experience and is full of action verbs can help you stand out from dozens of other potential job candidates. Here’s how to make your resume shine this new year.
A resume is crucial when applying for jobs and serves as a tool to market your skills. If your resume is a little dusty, brush it off and start giving it some attention. An outdated resume that doesn’t feature your most recent work or highlight your accomplishments is working against you. An updated resume makes all the difference, especially when it comes to being a potential job candidate or not.
You found the job you want, now it’s time to make sure your resume stands out. You want to impress hiring managers and you have a limited window to do so. With a well-designed, updated resume, you’ll be off to a good start. Here are some tips to get your resume noticed.
Use your friends or professional acquaintances to help you make sure your resume is up to par. If it’s too long, ask someone what information they’d cut out to make it one page. Or, ask for tips and find inspiration from others. You can also surf LinkedIn and view the resumes of those who hold jobs you’re interested in. This will help you focus on how you can make your resume better.
Ashworth has resources available to help you even after you graduate. Alumni receive career services, like resume building, with Ashworth EDGE. This toolkit has templates you can use as you job hunt and also has mock applications.
If your resume still needs a boost, furthering your education can help. Staying up to date on industry standards can help give you the competitive edge you need. Whether you’re considering earning a degree, certificate, or career diploma, Ashworth’s flexible, affordable learning model can help you. If upskilling yourself was at the top of your resolutions, talk with an Admissions Advisor at or enroll online.
