There’s no doubt about it: creating (or updating) a resume is intimidating beyond belief. (At first.) At times it can seem like there’s nothing that freezes you in your tracks faster. That’s why a lot of resumes are terrible.

First off: it’s crucial for you to show how you bring value to the table. The company doesn’t need you. That’s why you need to convince them otherwise, by crafting a hard-hitting, straight-to-the-point (and factual) resume that shows the hiring manager how you are an asset.

1. Research The Company

Figure out who the managers, HR consultants, and regular staff are – even the secretary or receptionist. Read back into the business’s history – noting any accolades they may have won. The aim here is to soak up their knowledge like a sponge. You will then apply your unique skills to the company’s job requirements, and be able to explain exactly why you are more qualified than other candidates.

2. List Your Experience

Each company you’ve previously worked for shows the hiring manager that you know what you’re doing. Be sure to include your job title(s), your employment timeframe, and bullets that highlight your responsibilities and personal accomplishments.

Let’s say you used to be a receptionist at XYZ Inc. Your responsibility was scheduling important meetings for the board of directors. This position made you extremely flexible when it came to making decisions and balancing hectic workloads. As a result of your professional agility, your accomplishment was making executive meetings ahead of schedule, saving company time.

3. Formal Objective

It is recommended that when writing resumes you should write a formal objective. Hiring managers are busy people, and have no time guessing what your goals are within the company; formal objectives cut right to the point. Here are some tips for writing one:

  • Ask yourself: “How will I benefit the employer? Why am I helpful to the team?”
  • Don’t be vague (ex: “Seeking a long-term opportunity to advance in my career”)
  • Be pithy and concise (saving the hiring manager time in making a decision, which is always appreciated)

4. Resume-Writing Services

No matter how much research you do, or how many resumes you send out, there comes a point where it becomes monotonous. You just don’t know what to do anymore. Luckily, there’s nothing quite like having an industry expert with decades of experience directly creating (or reworking) your resume for you. Arielle Careers can help you get a job quickly. However, look for resume-writing services that use HR strategists, executive recruiters and/or copywriters to avoid being scammed. Know, though, that some of these services are pricey if you don’t have the budget for them. Look to spend anywhere between $50-$200.

5. Resume Templates

There are a number of Microsoft Word resume templates you can download that take all the nuts and bolts out of writing resumes. Keep in mind that you most likely aren’t the only person in the world to use one. While templates offer a pristine look, they may tip your interviewer off as a lazy worker.


Hiring managers need less than a minute to determine if you’re fit for the job. That’s why it’s also worth your time to invest in creating elevator pitches. Doing this practice will train you to provide as much relevant (and valuable) information in the shortest time possible. Resume writing, while time-consuming, is beneficial for securing your future at a job.

    I find it unfortunate that the Commissioner has forced disclosure of people’s salaries and names. Top executives, sure, name them. But was it necessary to actually NAME the receptionist next to his/her salary? Jeez. I think the Commissioner is taking this to an extreme.

    Well written Penelope, we all have the right to cry, scream, or get angry if this mess comes along. I have a problem with venting my emotions. For example when I had a UTI it caused me a lot of pain (I rated that at 12/10), that I am not used to. Sitting in my chair in the waiting room of the 24 hr surgery, my wife said to the receptionist that I had almost broke out in tears and needed someone quick. And this happened, and a new catheter was fitted and took the pain away. Now I have a supruga fitted and that is a lot more comfortable as the Ms has closed my urethra be and caused a horrible retention in my bladder. I was wondering why I couldn”t pee properly over the last few years and didn”t think about it so much, there was a lot going on outside myself.
