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.
Also, do not forget cover letters. This the single best way to showcase how you would fit each job opportunity. Even if you decide to stick with one version of your resume, each cover letter must be customized to be effective. Here again, you will start to feel pain in your bank account if you do not master the skills to tailor your own resume and cover letters accordingly.
Obviously, you know what is on your resume, right? Not necessarily if you had someone else write it and you do not review it very carefully. Keep in mind that many facts large and small went into the shaping of your winning resume. When the time comes to sit in front of a hiring manager for a face-to-face interview, you should not be hesitant about which facts made it onto your resume and which ones did not. Chances are your words will not be in sync with your written resume if you are not thoroughly familiar with exactly what your resume says. The best way to be on top of those details is to write your resume for yourself.
