Here are some great things about this sample resume and some things that should be changed for your own resume.
Brag About Your Experience
If you have several years of experience under your belt like this applicant, dont leave that up for surprise. The point of your professional summary is to wow your employers and make them want to read your entire resume. Saying you are experienced is okay, except the word experienced is subjective. People who dont have enough experience to make it sound amazing are the ones who tend to leave the number of years out of your professional summary, so dont make your potential employers assume that you are the same way and toss your resume aside before they see how amazing it is. Here is an example of how it makes the professional summary stronger. Good Summary Experienced FEMA DAE Project Specialist .Currently in the IWMO Program for Limited Emergency Appointment Personnel (LEAP). Detail-oriented professional skilled at building strong working relationships with fellow staff, supervisors and community members with 30 years of management experience. Better Summary FEMA DAE Project Specialist with 32 years of experience. Currently in the IWMO Program for Limited Emergency Appointment Personnel (LEAP). Detail-oriented professional skilled at building strong working relationships with fellow staff, supervisors and community members. This will make sure your potential employers are wowed from the very first sentence.
List Actual Skills and Pick the Best Ones
Whether you name it the skills or highlights section, skills should be listed under it. With highlights, you can add a few things that you are particularly proud of, but skills need to be included. You should pick the best 10-12 and add, and each thing you listed should only be 1-3 words long. In this sample resume, the highlights section mostly has things that could be listed in the experience section under the job they were done at. Here are some skills that you can list to make your resume strong. Highlights
These skills are important to your employer because they arent learned. Not everyone who applies will have these skills. Some people dont work well with others and have a hard time thinking under pressure. Most of the people who are applying can do the same work you do, you need to prove that you can do it better.
Use Bullet Points
Use bullet points in every section of your resume, not counting the professional summary. Your summary should be in complete sentences, but everything else needs to be listed with bullet points. In the sample, the highlights section is done with bullet lists, but nothing else is. Make sure you use them in your experience and education sections, and any other sections that you decide to add. Here is an example of how it makes your resume look much better. Wrong Experience 07/2012 – 11/2012 FEMA ?
