10 tips to make your resume more attractive

Finding work is not easy but, with a good resume, your chances will increase. This is why we will give you a few tips to help you write a perfect one that will draw the attention of human resources or any potential employer.

1. Focus on your experience

Emphasising on your professional experience rather than academic training will help you find work more easily as companies look for safe and solid values. 

2. Show concern for the company

When a business organisation is in crisis, it affects everyone, so it is important that you show your commitment and loyalty to the company projects that you will be assigned to.

3.  Do not focus on the salary

It is never advisable to make monetary demands on a resume, especially when the company is facing financial crisis. 

4. Demonstrate your flexibility and versatility

Try to emphasise on your ability to take on different tasks without concluding with time or money problems. 

5. Try to be positive

Entrepreneurs are not interested in complaints - only solutions and good ideas. Even if you have to work longer hours, you shouldn't express any negativity on your resume

6. The cover letter is your best complement

The resume is important, but the cover letter will provide the space you need to express yourself and show your concerns, solutions and ideas. All this, of course, without sounding arrogant. 

7. Personalise everything

Do not create a generic resume and send it to all the companies. This shows carelessness and fake interest in the job you are applying for. 

8. Denote responsibility and trust

Companies are naturally distrustful regarding candidates, so make yourself stand out. Words like 'develop', 'organise' or 'plan' can help.

9. Be creative

HR managers are tired of boring and monotonous resume templates that are extracted from Internet. Compile and design your own and give a different touch to it.

10. No grammar or spelling mistakes

Perhaps after a few hours of working on your resume, you don't feel like proofreading it. But rather than leaving it to someone else to check for errors, it is best that you review it yourself. 

These ten tips, obviously, will not guarantee you a job but will still increase your chances. By making your resume stand out from other candidates, you will have a better chance of a personal interview. While it is difficult to find work, taking care of all the details will help you move forward.
