5 Ways To Make Your Resume Stand Out

Posted: August 12, 2009 12:00PM by Stephanie Powers

 

 

All those resumes you sent out may have been a waste of time. Chances are, if you only received a canned email reply or no acknowledgment at all, nobody even read your resume.

So, what should you do to get noticed? You have to be creative if you want to get an interview these days. Here are a few ideas designed to get you a call back from recruiters:


#1 - Advertisement for Yourself

Professionals agree that each individual needs a personal brand. If you're going to have a brand, you may as well advertise it. Create a one page highlight of what you could do if hired. Just like any ad, use well thought-out tag lines that quickly get the recruiter's attention. Don't tell everything, as you want the reader to call you for additional information. Post the ad everywhere your future employer may be looking; hand them out at industry conferences, and mail them directly to the hiring manager at perspective companies.

#2 - Business Cards

Business cards were designed to be simple references that people use to contact you. In addition to your name, phone number and e-mail address, include a short phrase that describes your expertise. The job title should be the same as the one you're interested in interviewing for. Use the back to list keywords, certifications and accomplishments. Mail the business card with a note card referencing the job title you're interested in, and a short paragraph requesting an interview.

 

#3 - Professional Website

Your professional website should highlight your professional accomplishments. Include the web address on resumes and all correspondence including emails. Don't include too much personal information (remember, it is posted for the world to see). Provide a contact email address. Link your professional website to industry organization websites, alumni organization websites and blogs related to your profession.

#4 - Presentation on a DVD

Create a presentation complete with highlights of what you could do for the company if hired. Include examples of your accomplishments and awards. The DVD method works best for creative type employment because it allows you to showcase your skills.

#5 - Pre-Interview "Thank You" Note

Thank the recruiter for taking the time to read your resume and schedule an interview. Include the times and dates you are available, and contact information. The note should reference the job title you wish to interview for and the date your resume was sent.

Don't keep sending out that old non-response resume, hoping to someday receive a call back. Getting hired during a 
recession requires a much more more savvy approach.
