Are you one of the millions of men and women who are looking for a new job? If so, you need to have a job search resume to submit to companies that are hiring. A resume can be tricky to write if it has been years since you last compiled one. On that same note, a good resume is key to your job search success. Although nothing more than a piece of paper, it is an important piece of paper that is your key to landing a job interview and then work. If you are looking to write this important document, please keep these three helpful tips in mind: Resume Writing Tip #1: Brainstorm Ahead of Time Many job seekers decide they need a resume; therefore, they sit down and compose one on the computer. Taking the initiative is good, but there are benefits to brainstorming and planning ahead. On a whim can you name accurate dates of employment for the last ten years? On a whim can you think of all the important job duties you performed at each position? Why not grab a notebook and pen and start to carefully think about each job you have had over the years; make note and then use those notes to compose an accurate, up-to-date, and detailed resume. Resume Writing Tip #2 - Don't Worry Too Much About the General Rules of Thumb Do a little bit of research about composing resumes or filling out job applications and you will likely come across a few rules or instructions you are encouraged to file. For example, most professional recommend keeping your resume one page in length; do not go above this. Other experts recommend a chronological format (more recent jobs first) and nothing else. These are good rules on thumb, but sometimes it is okay to break the rules. Lets say that you can't fit all of your job duties, skills, training, and education on one page. Does this mean you need to cut out important information? No! If you resume needs to be longer than so be it! Resume Writing Tip #3 - Free Templates Are Easy to Find Online One of the hardest parts of writing resumes is the first step to get started. Yes, you need to include your contact information at the top of the page; you got that. But what comes next? Should you include an objective? Should you move onto your most recent jobs? Should you include your degree first? To ease the stress associated with creating this job search document from scratch, do a search online to find free templates. You can find templates for specific jobs and industries, which is ideal because the information you should include on a resume for a part-time cashier will vary from the information you should include on a resume for a full-time store manager. Finally, it is important to remember that it is always a good idea to have a second set of eyes. Do you have a friend or a family member whom you can trust to provide you with honest feedback? If

so, ask them to look over your job search document. When doing so, take any suggestions or feedback they provide you with into consideration.
