What are transferable skills and why put them on my resume?
Transferable skills are defined as abilities or expertise gained through any professional, academic, or personal activity which can be carried over to the workplace and which directly relate to the applied position. They are essential in a resume because they help develop your personal brand and prove you’re the best fit for a specific position.
What are keywords and how can I use them to my advantage?
As the world of job-seeking becomes increasingly digital, with agencies and recruiters using applicant tracking systems to weed out inappropriate candidates, it is vital for all applicants to include job-specific keywords in their resumes. Keywords are the principal words used to describe the job role or person specification. Each job seeker should use them in various sections of their resume, such as in the objective, work history descriptions, and skills. They can be taken directly from the job vacancy, and the use of synonyms is also advisable.
How do I structure my work experience in my resume?
To ensure your resume optimally represents your work experience and describes other standard information, such as employer names, job titles, and dates, it is highly recommended that you include between three to five bullet points describing your previous tasks, achievements, or projects in each role. This information should be as quantifiable as possible and provide evidence of your job suitability. You should also include both start and end dates for each job. Always use the same format throughout, the most common being “Month/Year–Month/Year”. Even if you choose a different style of resume, remember to list the various past roles in reverse chronological order.
