Words are key. Your resume should include as many relevant keywords as possible. Avoid using general terms like “good communication skills” and “team player.” Instead, use keywords that match exactly what the employer is looking for. For example, if you’re pursuing a career in marketing, words like “research” and “promotions” will jump off the page and of course show up more on job search engines. Don’t waste precious resume space by using overused words that don’t mean much.

Less is more. Overcrowded, unorganized, and hard-to-read resumes are likely to be placed at the bottom of the pile or moved into the trash bin on employers’ e-mail accounts. A well-formatted yet modest resume is more likely to get noticed than one with several fonts, overcrowding, confusing templates and inappropriate graphics. Your resume should be detailed yet concise while avoiding typical resume mistakes. Employers prefer easy-to-read resumes that clearly outline your skills and accomplishments.
