How to Get Your Resume Noticed Quickly

Each day, hiring managers are charged with the task of wading through piles of resumes and choosing the best one. After a while, many of these resumes can begin to look alike, and most hiring managers will only contact the candidates with the most appealing resumes. If you are currently looking for a job, here are some ways to get your resume noticed quickly.


Use a Professional Format

Before submitting your resume, be sure it is properly formatted in a professional manner. There is no need to use a flashy or exotic format to impress hiring managers, and many will be focused on finding professional-looking not innovative resumes. To ensure your resume fits the bill, try:  

• Editing your resume for misspelled words and grammatical errors 

• Using a readable and visually appealing font

• Including only relevant information

If you don’t take the steps listed above, more than likely, your resume will go to the bottom of the pile.


Emphasize Your Strong Points

When writing a resume, you should place a significant amount of emphasis on your most prominent talents and skills. In each section of your resume, underscore your most important achievements and duties. The opening statement is a great place to do this since it allows you to sum up your entire career in just a few sentences.  


Place the Most Important Information Near the Top

When reading, our eyes naturally veer towards the top of the page first. This means you will want to place the most important information near the top of your resume and the least important near the bottom. What you consider to be the “most important” should depend on the job you are applying for. For example, if you are applying to be a doctor, place your education and training section near the top. If you are applying for a position that values hands-on experience more, it may be wise to place your education section near the bottom.
