all that women want

A resume is your life condensed to a few pages and highlighted with your qualities and experiences. Potential employers learn about you through the words you chose and the examples you give.
You have to give employers a polished and professional resume, one that emphasizes all of your best qualities. To help you accomplish this, here are several tips that can guarantee you the best resume possible.
No matter what your situation, these tips will help you make a powerful impression.
1. Apply Your Skills
Show , through your resume, that you have experience with the job in question. Listing irrelevant abilities will not impress your employer. For example, if you are seeking a job in management, then you must show potential employers that you are qualified for this job. Apply the skills you have to this position.
Power Words, also called Action Verbs, provide better emphasis in a resume. They create a more assertive and memorable statement. Words like "accomplished", "developed", "led" and "persuaded" show your employer that you are confident in your abilities. Rather than making a bland statement (for example), " I was District Sales Manager of the Information Technology Division"), you let your experiences shine ("Increased sales 39% in 18 months as the District Sales Manager ). Use these words to show confidence and control.
3. Stick To The Point
employers do not have time to wade through your entire life; they
want to know what you can do for them and why you are best suited
for the job. When writing a resume, be concise. List only relevant
details, accomplishments and experiences. A resume should represent
only the parts of your life that are
4. Sell Yourself
While humility is to be admired, it can also cost you a job-you are going against countless other individuals who want the same position you do and they are all trying to look better than any other applicant. If you want the job, you have to standout. Showcase your best abilities and experiences; emphasize your strengths and talents. If you want the job, then you have to be willing to indulge in a little conceit. This is not to say, however, that you should misrepresent yourself. Tell the truth (just use the best examples of the truth). Remember that you deserve this job; do not shy away from showing future employers why.
5. Plan Everything
resumes are one-two pages long. This does not leave much room to navigate.
Decide in advance what you will include. And, since you have limited
space, you must include only relevant facts and concise descriptions.
Take the time to draft your resume and see if anything is lacking
or missing. This will save
6. Flashy Is Futile
creating your resume , use only white or ivory paper. Do not waste
time with novelty items (anything colored or special bonded). Stand
out with the content, not the paper. Also, never handwrite your resume.
This shows a lack of interest to
This is the most important part of creating a resume. You must proofread everything, over and over until you are certain there are no mistakes. And, then, you have someone else read it-going over a resume once or twice is not enough; you are not likely to catch any mistakes. Read and reread.
