A good resume should cover both hard and soft skills. Create a skills section with keywords that are relevant to the employer. List any required skills like certifications or licenses first.
List Your Professional History with Keywords
You should use keywords from the job description when listing your professional history. Similar to your skills section, you should include information from the job description in your job history bullets. Here are some tips:
Employers have seconds to review your resume, so you should keep your descriptions as concise and relevant as possible. Try removing filler words like "and," and "the." You should list only key achievements instead of multiple lines describing your role.
Use action verbs
Make a more substantial impact by using action verbs to describe your professional achievements. Some examples include "developed," "saved," "drove," and "managed."
Follow the same process for other work experiences if you have a limited professional history, and include internships and volunteer opportunities using the same format.
