Write an Eye-Catching Resume – Irresistible Words
In a world of vanillas, you are strawberry swirl.
How do you concisely and positively show your future employer that you are the most qualified applicant for the job? The following words are great to utilize in describing your experiences and accomplishments. They can be changed as needed. For example: “While a Network support technician at Company X, I collaborated with staff from each of the seven departments to develop a new system for reporting software error. Upon my implementation of this enhanced system, efficiency of repair time was increased by 48%.” Be as specific and, when possible, give quantities (dollars saved, sales increased, efficiency improved, etc.)

All Things Considered
Probably the most important consideration as your write is your intended audience: your future employer. Do some research into the company. What are its goals? In what direction has it been moving in the last five years? Are you responding to a specific job description? How do your experiences and skills fit the description?
Important information needs to stand out and be easy to find. Your resume should be well organized and pleasing to the eye. Top, bottom, left, and right margins should be at about 1 inch. Use a standard font, such as Times New Roman, Helvetica, or Arial, and use italics, bolding, and underlining sparingly. Remember that your resume may be scanned, copied, faxed, etc. a multiple number of times.
