A great resume answers the "Why" question. It articulates your background and achievements in a way that not only supports your candidacy but also highlights the work you have done in the past that makes you a positive resource in a new position.
Of course, it goes without saying that a great resume is streamlined, easy to scan for resume keywords and accomplishments, and has zero errors in the grammar and spelling departments. One of the main reasons that people are not contacted after applying for jobs stems from grammatical and/or spelling errors in resumes. Additional considerations for a great resume include aesthetically pleasing font style and size choices, and knowing which resume format to use.
This can’t be reiterated enough: A great resume will align to the needs and requirements listed in the job advertisement. Make sure the skills, work experiences, and educational qualifications listed in your resume connect to the job advertisement, and the most pressing needs the employer is looking to address through hiring for the job.
