Your resume is your key to getting that interview. It’s the first test. Here are a few tips on how to make an impressive resume.
A good resume does not only contain your demographic details: age and gender etc. It must also include information about you that will encourage people to actually take interest. It should package your qualifications and strengths in a way that would not seem too aggressive or boastful. However, it should be assertive and should show initiative.
In writing your qualifications summary, do not bombard it with all the glorious details. Make it short and concise. Remember K-I-S-S? Keep it short and simple. The person reading your resume will have had read a lot of resumes before he came to yours. He already has a headache. Make it easier for him to see if you are right for the job.

In writing about your experiences, do not only include your position, name of company and the number of years rendered. Add more color. Use actions words or verbs to tell what tasks you handled or projects you headed. Make it short though.
When you are done with all the necessary information, think of the lay-out. This is like the cherry on top of your ice cream. This is your final packaging but this is the first thing that is noticed. Do not use too small font size: font size 11-12 will do. Do not use bright font colors. They irritate and hurt the eye. Remember to give your lines enough space that you would not seem to be running out of paper or e-space.
These are just a few things you should bear in mind when making your resume. Just remember, you are packaging yourself; so do it in a way that will make them want to choose you.
