Hi, my name is Brad Bucklin, and I'd like to tell you about writing a resume. First, I will go over what to include in a resume.
First, you want to include obviously your name and your contact information, preferably at the top of the resume, because that's where they are gonna look for.
Secondly, you want to include an objective. Now, there's some controversy to this, but I say that an objective actually directs your resume, so that they know what you want. And be specific. Be as specific as you can. And don't say something like, "Seeking an employment with an opportunity to…" Just say what you want: "I want an administrative position." Or "Administrative position," that's all you need to say.
The other thing is, to include qualifications-things that impress people about you. Now, you don't need to say things like...organized, unless you can back it up with organized…with the ability to do something in the organizational area.
Now, both things should go to top just so they have an idea of what your skills, abilities and talents are. And then you wanna include your…obviously, your job history. And it should be in reverse chronological order, which means the most recent first, working backwards.
Then, after that, you should include your education. Education should also be in reverse chronological order so that the most recent is first. Now, also you wanna remember to be as concise as possible, but get across what is going to be impressive to them, which includes achievements, things that you did on the job that are impressive, like you were employee of the month, or you save them quarter-million dollars, or you were top sales person, something that was an achievement. Those really drive a resume.
So those are some of the basic things that you should include in your resume. If you'd like to learn more about getting a job, click on any of the links above. Thank you.
