Reread your resume in a couple of days
Fill in the periods in between jobs
The description of breaks in work is always a challenge. A lot of people working in the art or consulting spheres, freelancing, will often have gaps in their careers, and some employers may assess it as a negative factor.
Did you perhaps have short-term project earnings? Describe them! For example, you could have worked as a freelance decorator, a costume designer, a journalist, etc.
The reason you left the previous place of work
Think about your next steps after leaving that position and assess how you can favorably explain quitting your previous job. For example: “I left to get sales experience in a small family business and to understand how a retail company with large wholesale distributors functions”.
Think about the search words
You can easily choose them with your common sense, Google tips or a free Google AdWords tool.
Pay attention to the verbs
Managers manage, assistants help. The directors who use verbs like “promoted”, “participated”, “supported” in their resumes do not sound like managers.
So if you are applying for a managing position, in addition to describing the main responsibilities of the assistant, mention the projects that you “directed”. This will demonstrate your initiative!
Craft your resume taking these tips into account, and be sure – the employer will appreciate your efforts!
