Three Easy Ways to Improve Your Resume

Follow Us:

Getting your dream job is no easy feat. In fact, in a crowded marketplace getting any job is tough. There are many people with great skills and experience, all educated and vying for the same positions. So how do you manage to stand out? Below, we discuss three ways to boost your resume. 

Show a Willingness to Learn

When you show a willingness to learn, you are telling an employer that you are ready to change and improve to fit their needs. Even better than this, is when you show that you are a self-starter, who will improve and adapt without them having to spoon-feed you the knowledge you need to excel in the role. However, showing this can be tricky, and making it stand out is even harder. 

One way to do it is by reverting to the old classics. Demonstrate skills that you have learned yourself, not through the employment of formal education, but in your own time.

Language is a great way to do this, as it is also a skill that is extremely beneficial to a workplace. For example, if most of your work is in Europe and you work frequently with clients in Germany, then learning German online could be beneficial. Among the hustle and bustle of daily life, it can be challenging to take time aside to learn vocational skills, especially if they involve attending physical classes. However, with the flexibility and convenience of online classes, whether you’re wanting to learn the odd phrase to sweeten your working relationship with clients or aspire to become proficient, there are various classes suitable to whatever your needs may be.

Of course, language is not the only option. You may decide to get technical and develop coding skills or even skills to use around the home.

Build an Online Presence

This is a bittersweet pill to swallow. You would hope that employers would look more at your ability to do the job, than how many followers you have online. You also don’t want them seeing pictures of you on your college spring break letting your hair down. Yet social media is becoming even more important on a resume

LinkedIn is the ideal place if you are in business. Yet for people in marketing, Instagram and TikTok can also be brilliant platforms. These mediums allow you to demonstrate how savvy you are at your job, as well as your proficiency with digital know-how. Ultimately, these social media profiles enable you to curate an image that could boost your prowess as a professional whilst simultaneously highlighting your personality, aka your offering to work culture and environment.

Unsurprisingly, a large online presence could improve the outreach of a company’s brand. This can be used for networking and may come in helpful for reaching out for collaborations. If you don’t have a social presence, leave it off the resume. But for those who do, don’t be afraid to include it. 

Tailor the Resume to the Job

Tailor the Resume to the Job

This seems like an obvious one, but many people use the same resume for multiple applications. If you want your to stand out, adjust it to suit the job and company you are applying for. 

Start by scanning the job advertisement for keywords. Remove any that are not relevant from your resume and add them to suit the employer. If the job description is vague, then Google the words and skills that are required in the industry. 

Once you have these, add them to a great selection of qualifications and experience. In a crowded employment market, you then just have to hope that your dream job comes your way.
