How to Write Job-Winning Resumes Creating a resume that actually gets you the job is more about knowing what hiring managers and recruiters are 'not' looking for, than trying to give them everything that they 'are' looking for. A few things recruiters and hiring managers don't want to see are: The year you graduated high school. Unless you are a new graduate entering an internship program or some other entry-level position, or if you've never had any work experience, then maybe you include the year you graduated high school. However, if you've been in the workforce for any significant amount of time, or if you're currently in college and you have internships and work experience under your belt, there is no need to include what year you graduated high school.

Extracurricular activities, especially if those activities have the potential to incite any type of bias. If you are involved in religious, cultural, or social groups, unless those activities relate to the position to which you are applying, do not include those activities. As much as possible you want to eliminate any bias that inhibits your chances of securing a position. Personal information. There should never be any reason for an employer to inquire about your personal life. Personal information includes things like, your marital status, sexual orientation, parental status, etc. These are all things that can create bias that has the potential to eliminate you as a candidate for a new position. In addition to knowing what 'not' to do, you also need to ensure that the information you include on your resume is what employers are looking for. For instance, employers need to see: Results. Employers in this day and age are looking for employees who can deliver results. Gone are the days where employers had the time, energy, and resources to

train new hires on issues that plague the business. Now, employers are recruiting candidates and hiring employees who come in the door knowing what organizational problems exist and just what they need to do to solve them. Your resume should reflect results. Don't spend an inordinate amount of time describing your job responsibilities as they were dictated to you. You need to show what you did, and what the outcomes of what you did were. If you implemented solutions to address the overspending that occurred when ordering supplies, then you need to include that on your resume, and if at all possible, include what the cost savings were. Showing how you've produced results is also a great indicator of your problem solving abilities, so don't be shy. Relevant information. Ensuring that your resume is relevant means that you're not including work you did twenty years ago while you worked the docks at some retail store. Relevant work experience in essentially includes the things that you've done within the past five to seven years.

Again, everything you've accomplished should, as much as possible, include actual results you've had and/or problems you've solved. Employers want to know that your skills and experience are fresh and ready to apply in a new environment.
