3 Best Resume Tips for Bowling Green Job Seekers

Speaking to professionals at the National APA Conference, Washington, DC

#1 Understand that as candidate surplus goes up, tolerance for resumes with poor messaging and “user experience” goes down. In other words, tap into employer needs with content that you place on your resume.

#2 Dig deep into your skills sets and note the challenges that you solve based on industry challenges. What problems does your skills help companies solve? 

For example, I am an expert ______. Safety champion: OSHA10, OSHA30, Hazmat. Skills based worker: Forklift certificate including cherry pick and stand up. Team lead and Supervision experience that leverages talent pool to meet company daily productivity goals.

#3 65% of jobs today are filled or in the process of being filled before they are listed. Your resume isn’t enough. Leverage social platforms as talent databases or for advertising and connecting with hiring officials. Use your resume on LinkedIn, FB, Twitter, Instagram, and Google, etc.

#BONUS TIP: Optimize Industry Keywords on your resume from the job description and also from the noted problems. For example, sales, business development, operations, human resources, training, distribution, loyalty, sales retention, team leadership, inventory, warehouse.

Looking for a job now is not simply about stating your duties at work, it’s about marketing your unique skills: It’s a Career Marketing Campaign!
