It's no secret that your resume can unquestionably make or break your job application. That is why there are so many articles, books, and consultants available to offer a job-seeker all that is essential to write a winning resume. However, it is not necessary to search long and hard to find the definitive resume writing guide. Just follow the simple steps below and you will successfully compose a comprehensive and enticing resume that may help land that job you've always dreamt of.

1. Personal Information - This should be obvious. Your resume should contain your name, address, and phone number. If you are a student, an on-campus address as well as a permanent address should be provided. If possible, include a photograph when writing your resume.
2. Professional Objective - Your objective is an important part of resume writing. It provides relevant information to the recruitment department about the specific job being applied for, so that resumes may be sorted accordingly. In addition, your professional objective provides a short but concise description of your potential "fit" to not only the job opening, but the employing company. If you are a new college graduate, be certain to avoid an objective that is too vague and does not express realistic expectations. This is a typical error many new college graduates make when writing a resume.
3. Educational Qualifications - Make sure to include all the important information regarding your college major, date of graduation, grade point average, and the name of the educational institution. To save space, exclude primary and secondary education in your resume writing unless it represents the last educational experience you have had.
4. Work Experience - For an employer who is seeking specific job-related knowledge, skills, and abilities in an applicant, this work experience section is invaluable. Detailed and extensive work experience data must be included in writing your resume: dates of employment, employing companies, positions held, military experience, and anything else that will help qualify you for the job you are seeking. Despite its importance, and relevance to employers, including extensive experience may result in a resume that is longer than preferred. Depending on the level and type of job, balance the amount of experience included with the length of your resume.
5. Achievements - Employers and recruitment staff are always looking for instances where an applicant has been recognized for previous accomplishments in the form of honors and awards. So, when writing your resume, be sure to include any of these achievements from both college and work. To an employer, achievements indicate such skills as leadership, organization, communication, and teamwork. As with work experience, balance resume length with the benefits of mentioning the awards.
6. References - Whether or not to include a references section when writing your resume is a matter of choice. If overall resume length is a concern, you may omit the detail in this section and use the statement, "references available on request." Should the employer require you to provide references you can attach a separate reference page that includes the name, address, and phone number of three to five referrers.
7. Cover Letter - In the submission of your resume, a cover letter will be the first thing that the employer will view, and yet when writing your resume, the cover letter is the last part you complete. Why? Because the purpose of the cover letter is to introduce your resume and summarize itís key points. Your resume must be completed before a good cover letter can be written. Your cover letter must express which job you are interested in, how you learned of the opening, and what you think you can offer the organization. The cover letter and resume are a packaged presentation, and attention to the resume at the expense of the letter may prove costly to your job prospects.

So there it is; resume writing make simple. Just follow these simple steps and you will be ready to start your career search and write your unbeatable resume with ease!
