The most important things to remember about writing an effective resume can be encapsulated in a six-letter acronym, FAKTSA, in which the letters stand for:

  • Focus
  • Appearance
  • Keywords
  • Transferrable Skills
  • Accomplishments

Inundated by job applications from job-seekers, employers have increasingly relied on digitizing resumes, placing those resumes in keyword-searchable databases, and using software like Applicant Tracking System (ATS) to search those databases for specific keywords that relate to job vacancies. Most Fortune 500 companies and many smaller companies now use these technologies. In addition, many employers search the databases of 3rd party job-posting and resume-posting boards on the web. It is safe to estimate that well over 90 percent of resumes are searched for job-specific keywords.

Keywords are used to rank resumes. The more keyword-rich the document is the better. These can be woven throughout the resume, but it’s especially easy to update in the core competencies/expertise section. Use the job description/posting to borrow as much language as you can. Also, try to describe similar skills in more than one way (e.g. acronym and written out). Also, avoid images or text boxes (which you’ve done) and don’t include contact information in a header on the first page.

The length of a resume depends on the length and depth of someone’s work experience. While someone who has been in the workforce for a limited time might have a one page resume, someone with 5-10 years of experience might need two.

A chronological resume is a classic format that lists your work experience in order, starting with the most recent. A functional resume emphasizes qualifications and accomplishments instead of specific jobs but isn’t recommended. A Hybrid (our favorite) resume is a modern format where skills and highlights go at the top before a detailed professional experience.
