When it comes to studying, all of us struggle to score well so that we can get our dream job. Getting jobs these days have become a bit difficult since one has to go through some struggles to get the contact information of their dream company. And when we get that opportunity, we sometimes don't get through or are rejected even without an interview. If you think about why this happens, then maybe it's because of your resume. 

 

We live in fiercely competitive times, and there might be a hundred other people applying for the same job, right? Recruiters don’t have the time to analyse every resume under a microscope, so those resumes that stand out from the rest, have better chances of being called for the next round of interviews. If you are applying for a job and want to stand out from the rest, then here are some smart ways that can help your resume stand out. 

 

The simpler the better:

 

This is the most important thing that one needs to keep in mind. We all want to write everything we have achieved in our resume, but it's better if we don't do so. It's so because no one wants to know about your extracurricular activities in school. Focus on keeping your resume simple, use fonts that are easy to read and avoid unnecessary graphics to elaborate your points.

 

Avoid grammatical errors:

 

You can be a bit flowery with your resume, but making grammatical errors is a BIG no. It not only tarnishes your image, but you also come across, someone irresponsible and careless. The best way to avoid grammatical errors in a resume is to edit it multiple times.

 

Relevant information should be your priority:

 

Follow a chronology while building your resume. For example, always start with your current job when you elaborate on your experience and then follow it with the jobs you did before that. Also, it’s very important to filter information that is not relevant for the post. 

 

Master the art of storytelling: 

 

Storytelling is an art, so, look for opportunities in your resume to tell a story that the recruiter would remember. If you have done something extraordinary, share the story with them in a way, that will impress them immediately. 

 

Back up your work with facts:

 

Merely stating your merits and achievements is not enough. You should support whatever you write with facts and figures. If you say that you have won an award, make sure to mention which position you won it for.
