Choosing the Right Format
It's not merely about aesthetics.
One-size-fits-all word processing templates and resume builders fail to take into consideration your unique constellation of attributes, nor do they address your audience's wish list.
An effective resume format will direct the readers' eye to your most impressive qualifications which can include keywords and phrases such as job titles, employer names, client names, work departments, longevity of employment, industries served, software tools, and functional skills.
You may also choose to highlight longer stretches of text such as objectives, qualifications summaries, specific accomplishment statements, job responsibilities, and educational content (e.g. special projects, leadership roles, and awards).
In deciding which parts of your resume to emphasize, remember, your preference certainly matters but your prospective employer's preference matters much more. Do you know what they're looking for?
