Why Is It Important To Have An Effective Resume”?
There are several reasons why it is important to have an effective resume when applying for your dream career. Your resume should catch the eye of a recruiter-recruiters only take between 30-60 seconds to review a resume, so it is important that your resume stands out over all the rest. It should stand out in terms of color, fonts, keywords and qualitative information. The best colors to use are red or blue, especially when it comes to your work responsibilities. The best fonts to use include Cambria or Georgia. Times New Roman is considered outdated and should not be used in a resume. Lastly, it is important to use keywords that stand out such as “described,” “supervised,” or “developed.” These keywords will stand out within the applicant tracking system that many employers use to recruit potential employees.
