Include Additional Assets on Your Resume

resume additions video The Additions section of the Resumizer Free Resume Creator is where you can enter any awards, certificates, or extracurricular activities. You can enter anything extra you would like to include on your resume here. Including these feats can improve the authority of the other details you have already written.

Having won awards or performed volunteer work bolsters your commitment to your job and your career. People wouldn't have spent the time to do these things if they didn't have a genuine interest in them. This is why they can be important to write and why these spaces have been made available. You can tailor and customize your resume to bring it to a sharp focus so there is no doubt as to what your abilities are.
Enter the heading for your subject; for example: Awards, Certificates, then enter the information about that heading in the box below it. The heading should be something that immediately communicates what elements are contained within the list below it. From a well constructed heading, if the employer simply scans your page without really reading the contents too deeply they will still get a sense of what is written there.

You will use a bulleted list of short sentences, using 12 words or fewer. The creator program will format the list for you. Formatting can be a confusing thing to do if you are not familiar with the way it is done. We want our list to look neat, orderly and straight to the point. This is why we use few words to make it quick and easy to read.

Be creative about the career assets you can list that can promote your qualifications. Beyond the normal awards, certificates and internships there may be other situations available in your field that can be used as an entry here. Also, be on the lookout for opportunities that may arise that you can participate in that would be good to include here. If you are short on experience or education using this section can fill in some of those holes and strengthen your qualifications.

As is the case many times less can be more. It isn't always how much you write, but the substance of that writing. This means make what you write count not just to take up space but to convince the employer that you are the best person for the job. Update: The Skills section has been relocated to this section, information about skills can be found in the Contact Info video.
