Ten Commandments of Resumes
Yes, I found this video useful, but not so much helpful. This video goes on to talk about how to write a resume. It says how a resume is one of the most important things in the of getting a job. It is one of the things that will set you apart from the other competition. The video explains that your resume has to catch the employers attention. It says that you want to focus on the employers needs, not yours. Your resume needs to convince the employer that you are the one they should hire. More useful information this video gives is advise to research the job. Know all about it so you look knowledagble and as if you very interested in this opportunity. If you can, you need to network your resume. It is all about who you know and having recommendations. Always keep in touch with old employers to get good recommendations in the work field. Lastly, the video says to always include a cover letter. In the cover letter you should include the information you found in your research and the reason why you are the right choice for this job. As I said, this video was useful. All these tips were important, but most of them are common sense. Something this video could have added for example would be explaining how to get the readers attention or how to make the resume focus on your employers needs and not your own. Yes, I could definitly use this video to tweak my resume, but like I said, it could be a little more helpful with better examples.
