Resume Directory Description Help
Resume Directory Description HelpResume Directory Description Help to provide some guidance to write a catchy directory description to help make your resume listing stand out from the rest using our Resumizer Free Resume Creator. There are many suggestions listed below to give you the best chance that your resume directory description will catch the eye of a prospective employer.
For starters don't just create any old description thinking it is for your use to give your resume a simple description. If you make your resume public the directory description you write will be publicly viewable on a page in the resume directory. Everyone who has made their resume public will also be listed on the directory pages.
If you visit the directory you will see everyone's descriptions, you will see each persons name as the link to each individual resume page. Considering that each description has the same formatting you will want to have yours stand out from the rest.
Potential employers will either browse a relevant category or will enter keywords into the search box to narrow down their search. In either case multiple listings will be displayed. If you write a description that doesn't sound professional you will be passed over and your prospects for employment will be reduced. Included below are a few examples of descriptions we would not recommend you use. We also have explanations why each one is ineffective.
Examples of Ineffective Descriptions:
1. To establish a good position within a well respected company.
2. To secure employment in a field that can enhance my professional skills and experience.
3. I am looking for a job which could become a career.
4. To obtain a position with your company.
5. My resume for employers to see for jobs I want.
It is most important that your resume, cover letter, references page and description use correct spelling and proper grammar. Doing so will convey to an employer that you are an intelligent educated person. Generally speaking people who have college degrees tend to use better grammar, larger words and a more complex sentence structure.
So what does this tell us? Even if you have no college degree by displaying the appearance of being more educated it can help you to have your resume chosen over another. Write your description in a way that tells the employer how hiring you will serve his company's needs. It's not all me, me, me, don't focus on what you are looking for, after you get your interview you can discuss your needs. To get to that point you need to look like an effective person which with a well written description you can begin to accomplish that.
Try to describe in a short simple sentence the skills you possess and how you will benefit the employer. We allow up to 200 characters which is plenty to accomplish this goal. For help with other resume creation and resume account support topics please consult our help pages.
