This article will give some tips about the way to boost your changes of getting an interview.
In our previous articles, a lot has been discussed regarding the overall appearance of the resume. This is a good start, but in order to land that all important interview, you must understand ways in which you can modify your resume to meet the needs of the specific position you are applying for. It is extremely critical to do as much research as possible on that company and position and use this information to especially highlight relevant skills and experience.
In fields and positions where design is a critical factor (architecture, engineering, etc.), one critical aspect to focus on in your resume layout would be technical and computer skills. In design, the use of different types of media is extremely important so it is just as important for you to list your skills and knowledge. Say you are applying for a position in architecture, you would want your resume to list all programs that assist you in the design process. The more diverse your skills are in your resume , the better your chances are at landing the interview. For technical and scientific jobs (applies to other professions as well), make sure that you focus on your problem solving skills. It’s not enough to simply describe what you did in your resume, but also how you did it. Highlight skills that you used to overcome challenges that will be of interest to the employer when they look at your resume. Another great way to learn how to adjust your resume is by talking to people you know in the industry. If you don’t know anyone in the industry that you are looking in, find some businesses and give them a call (you’ll be surprised how helpful you’ll find some people to be).
