The first thing that someone who is looking for employment should have is a good resume. Have a resume that shows how professional your standards are, one that is not colorful and flashy but plain, easy to read and to the point. The resume and application are often the first impressions a potential employer has of a candidate. They need to be representative of what they can expect if they hire the individual.

Display all contact information at the top of the page in letterhead form, making it quick and easy for the potential employer to spot. They do not want to have to search all over the page for the information. They want to be able to scan quickly and see what they are looking for. Have subject headings, such as "skills" and "education" in bold so that the employer can easily find it. Avoid flashy pictures or colors. These are not needed on a professional resume, even if you are applying for a kindergarten teacher. The recipients of your resume are not amused or pleased by flashy colors and pictures.

Never, ever, use more than one page with your resume. You may have a lot of accomplishments and reasons you think you are the right person for the job, but so do all of the other applicants. The person doing the hiring is not going to waste his or her time reading the novel you have written about yourself. It might not be easy to weed some things out, but it is up to you to figure it out.

The key is to make sure you say everything that you need to say about yourself and keeping it on one page. Lowering the size of the type is of no help, because if you do that in order to get more words, it just becomes harder to read and ends up in the slush pile. Keep it simple and, by using the right words and taking the time, you can accomplish more with less.

If you are applying on line, that can make it even more difficult because your resume will look the exact same as far as appearances as anyone else. It makes it harder to stand out, so it will take even more time and diligence to get into the door of the employment director.
