Creative Ideas Help Your Job Application Stand Out

Finding a job in this economy can be tough, but certain elements to your resume may help you land a job.

A resume or CV this year is much different from one that might have been created in 2009 or before. There are several significant changes that have helped employees get the jobs they were looking for.

The first thing that has changed most  significantly is that one should keep their information as short as possible. Family details, marital status and current address take up space and time no one has. In the United States, employes are not allowed to ask for an applicant’s ethnicity, sexual orientation, origin or photograph. All that is needed is a name, place of residence, objective, and where applicable, a website.

Proficiency and ability should be highlighted first. Certain skills or attributes that may set you apart from someone else should be listed first. This includes strengths, languages, and list skills relevant to the job.

Only provide details of previous jobs that were relevant to the professional experience you need for a particular job you’re applying to get. Unless you’re looking for a complete career change, you can find value for your new job on ones that you’ve had previously.

There are several great websites and services that help you create a CV. Hiring managers take as little as two and a half seconds to determine whether you’d make the next round of interviews, so a CV should be short, sweet, and most importantly, to the point.

You have no clue what other candidates are applying for the same job as you and what skills and experience they have in relation to the job. The best things you can do is prepare to impress and have enough self-confidence that you can get the job.
