If you are applying for jobs and getting set to send out your resume, check out these tips to help you make it the best it can be!

Regular Updates

One of the best ways to improve your resume writing is by revisiting it regularly. If you write a resume and then don’t look at it for years, it will be very difficult to keep it current and interesting. Instead, revisit your resume regularly to add new content and to re-read it to ensure it reads well and has no spelling or grammatical errors.

Ask for Feedback

Asking for feedback on your resume writing from employers can really help you to improve your resume. If you apply for a job and are unsuccessful then ask the employer why and for some constructive criticism for your resume. You can then use this to improve and hopefully this should help you during the next job application. You can also ask friends and colleagues working in the industry for their advice and feedback.

Network

Networking is a great way to meet new industry contacts and to find out about new job opportunities. It’s also a great way to improve your resume. If you network with people in your industry you can ask them what they feel is the most important thing to emphasise on a resume. If you are at a network event where employers are, then why not consider asking them what they look for in a resume? Make notes and use them when you next update your resume.

Experience

One of the best ways to improve your resume is by gaining work experience. The more work experience you do, the more content you’ll have to include on your resume and the more interesting it will be! If you have some spare time why not consider volunteering or completing an internship to boost your resume and skills?
