Another option is to use a resume template to create your resume. These templates are great because they will provide you with a format for your resume. It will guide you through the process so that you are including the appropriate information and are presenting it in a way that will get you noticed. There are many styles to choose from so you can have the final say on the presentation of your resume. While this is a fairly quick way to come up with the format for your resume, it will require that you can work within the constraints of the resume template.
As an example, lets say at your current job you have been called on to handle a wide range of tasks - and you have carried them out exceptionally well. The problem is, you may not want to list all of those responsibilities in a single resume. That might give the impression that you are not focused on any particular expertise and that may put you at a disadvantage. Better to research what skill sets and what role the company you are interested in is looking to fill. Then, tune your resume accordingly. Takes more time? Yes. Gets better results?
The first way, and possibly the most difficult, is to create your resume from scratch. This can be a challenge because you do not want to submit a resume that is boring and that will not catch the eye of the hiring staff. If you write your own resume be sure that you come up with a unique presentation of your information and that you do not have any errors in spelling or grammar. When employers see a resume that is sloppy and that has errors on it they are very likely to turn it over and continue looking at the other resumes that were submitted.
