Your resume is one of the most important documents that you will create in your lifetime. Many times an employer will not even give you a chance at a job without a stellar resume. Usually the difference between getting a job interview and not getting a job interview is how well you write your resume. You usually can not speak to your prospective employer until they have first seen your resume, so your resume writing has to do the speaking for you. Writing a resume is not very difficult if you just remember a few basic techniques.

1. Career Objectives The career objective section should be located at the top of your resume. This section should contain your career goals and aspirations. It is a good idea to tailor this section so that it applies to the job which you are applying. This will let your prospective employer know that you are interested in the job, and that this job is a step towards your overall career objectives.

2. Work History Make sure when you are writing your resume you give your last three jobs in your work history. Also if for some reason there are gaps in your work history make sure you write an explanation for the absence on your resume. Also, when you are writing about the tasks you performed on this job, try to emphasize the tasks that relate the most to the job you are trying to get.

3. Skills Section This section is the most often overlooked when someone is writing a resume. However the skills section is the most important section in a resume. You want to make sure that you list all of the skills you have obtained, as well as the amount of experience that you have in each skill. This is very important to employers, because it tells them how much training they will have to give you if you are hired.

4. References Depending on the job you are applying for, an employer may or may not contact your references for information about you. If they try to contact your references and they can not contact them, it will reflect poorly on you, and you might not get called in for an interview. Make sure that you keep your contact information current when writing your resume, and notify your references when you submit a resume so they will be prepared to be contacted if necessary.
