Make Your Entry Level Resume Outstanding

It is very difficult for a candidate to start his or her career at an entry level. One has to struggle a lot to achieve their dream job and satisfactorily get employed in their dream company or organization. However, getting one's dream job is not a big task if one has all the required educational qualifications and skills essential to undertake that particular job position. The other important thing one must understand along with possessing all the essential qualifications is an effective and outstanding resume. Your resume plays a very important role in achieving an entry level job and giving a kick start to your career.

How to Format a Resume

We often hear from our private clients and workshop participants that creating an eye-catching, well-formatted resume is just as difficult as culling together the content of the resume itself. Particularly for career changers and veterans transitioning from the military to civilian professional realms, this is the first time they've put together a resume in quite some time!

We have a great whitepaper that explains what to put in your resume, but this blog post is all about formatting and creating the actual document.

Step One: Choose Your Favorite Document Editing Program

If you're a PC user, you probably use Microsoft Word. If you're on a Mac, you may have the option of choosing between Microsoft Word and Pages. The important thing is to choose the program that you are most comfortable with. You don't want small mistakes to appear on your resume because you weren't familiar or comfortable with the program.

Step Two: Browse the Default Templates

Both Pages and Word come with great default resume templates. These templates will give you a huge head start when it comes to understanding common formats for your resume. If you're still drafting the content for your resume, these default templates will also give you a good idea of common sections of a resume.

Step Three: Explore Other Templates + Choose Your Favorite

Microsoft Word, in particular, has a great FREE library of additional templates. Explore resources like this to find a resume that fits you. Make sure the "look" of your template fits with your personality and work industry. While a graphic designer or new media manager might choose a bold/loud template, a customer service specialist will probably go with something more traditional.

When choosing the format of your resume, don't worry if some of the section titles don't match your needs one-to-one. You can easily edit and change those to create the resume format that's perfect for you.
