The following will help you write a concise, effective resume:
State the facts
Focus on the facts (where you worked, how long you worked there, what your title was). For each position you've held, list your responsibilities, then describe accomplishments. This is a perfect place to showcase your strengths through your achievements. Your ability to make an impact is what employers are really looking for, so ensure you focus on what you've accomplished.
A chronological format with concise bullet points is recommended. This makes your resume easier to read and allows employers to quickly assess your credentials
Try to address any gaps in your career history, as employers will wonder about the spaces. If your career experience is short, keep your resume short. If your experience is lengthy, focus mainly on your current experience and major accomplishments. Please keep it relevant.
Sell your strengths
Come up with a handful of accomplishments that show your abilities.
Quantify your achievements
Companies are looking for people who can positively contribute to their bottom line. Hence, it is a good idea to quantify your achievements (i.e.: reduced technology expenditures in your last company by 25%; implemented a new procedure that decreased production time by 20%).
When meeting with AMTRA and our clients, don't forget the little things. Your communication style, attitude, punctuality, presentation and professionalism all go a long way in making a big impression.
