If you have not updated your resume for some time, it may be difficult to know where to start. With the Resume Builder, you can create a professional resume in minutes.

Here are 5 tips for creating a resume.

1. Review the Resume examples

Start by reviewing successful examples that fit different employment situations. This will help you to format your CV wisely. Look for a style that best expresses your strengths and weaknesses. Remember that your CV, no matter how well written, does not pass the scan phase if it's hard to read. With examples, you can choose the perfect fonts and formats to help you create the perfect resume.

2. Choose the best resume format

There are different types of CV formats and each type has its own advantages and disadvantages. Make sure you do your research and select the best format that fits your educational background, skills, and experience. You should also customize your CV so that it does not look like you downloaded it from the internet.

Remember to keep it simple and readable. Thanks to the technology, many CVs today are first read by applicant tracking systems before they reach the recruitment managers. If your resume is too complicated with fancy formatting and unreadable fonts, chances are it'll be discarded and you'll miss a great opportunity.

3. Use keywords

Before you create your CV, first read the job postings and job descriptions you are interested in. In this way, you can identify the keywords that are often used in this career path. Make sure you include these keywords in your bullet or where they are most relevant in your resume. Keywords are important as they help you stand out from the competition and get noticed faster in the applicant tracking systems.

4. Keep your work experience up to date and relevant

A useful rule of thumb is to keep your work experience current and relevant. Ideally, your CV should only show the last 10-15 years of your work experience. Secondly, you should only indicate the professional experience relevant to the job you are applying for. If you do not have the experience, do not panic.

You can focus on expanding your relevant and transferable skills along with your volunteer experience. You should also highlight your talents and hobbies if they are relevant to the position and useful to the job.

5. Read and edit the correction before sending

Before sending out your resume, take time to proofread and edit to make sure that there are no grammatical errors or mistakes. There are several fixes that you can use, but you can always ask your trusted friend or colleague to review them and give you objective criticism.
