When applying for a new job, a strong resume can help you stand out from other applicants, but a weak resume can remove you from the running!

This is your first opportunity to present yourself to a future employer so it’s important to make sure your resume is the best it can be.

We have put together our simple, but key tips on how to write a stand out resume:

Bold your name with colour

Adding colour to your name on the document is known to hold the selectors attention by at least three additional seconds.

Pick your font carefully

It pays to use an easy-to-read font like calibre for example so the reader can easily navigate through.

Less is more

The smaller number of words on a resume the better, selectors don’t have the time to read war and peace. Try keep your resume to 1-2 pages if possible.

Match your referees to the job
