EASY RESUME WRITING TIPS:   ​by Bonnie Mackenzie


​Writing your resume may seem easy for some, but many struggle over how to design and write it.  Here are a few tips on how to write an effective resume.  Take time to make sure your resume is one of a professional.  Here are tips from Bonnie:

  • One page, maybe two.  Your resume should not have so much information that your reader will be bored.  Give just the facts:  where you worked, city, state, dates of employment, title, and what you did.  You can include accommodations and awards.
  • Start with your name/address/phone numbers/email address on the top.  Then add a summary of what type position you are searching for.  Then chronologically list all of your jobs.  In fact, go on line and check out examples of resumes (especially searching for similar to your field of expertise).
  • Regarding chronological order, I feel that you don't need to go back more than 20 years, however, if you had impressive jobs before 1998, put in a section that says:  Previous jobs included...
  • Do not include your photo.  You are not applying for a modeling job.
  • Make sure the font is one of these:  Arial, Times Roman, etc.  And no larger than 12.  Color of font, black.  
  • Use standard margins.  Not narrow.  Make sure your resume will print correctly.  AND my suggestion is to save it as a pdf so no one can change it.

  • Please don't list any personal information like date of birth, information that is confidential, family descriptions, etc.
  • Finally, ask 3 friends who have strong reading skills to read your resume for clarity, accuracy, and flow.  Fix the errors.  

TELEPHONE SKILLS when you are looking for a job:


When you are in the job search mode, a potential employer might be calling you to discuss your application.  Have you ever considered that the FIRST IMPRESSION for a new job starts on the phone?  How do you sound?  Are you easy to talk to?  Do you sound professional, upbeat, and easy to talk to?  Here are a few points for you to consider:

  • FIRST IMPRESSION:  Change your answering machine.  Although many of us like music, don't have your personal answering system playing loud music in the background.  It is hard to understand what you are saying with that.
  • When you call a potential employer, speak clearly.  Be sure to smile as you talk.  You would be surprised to hear how you come across with a serious face. 
  • When you answer the phone, be sure to clearly say "hello".  If you are lying down when you answer, you will sound like you are in bed.  If you are in bed, sit up when you answer.  You will be surprised how much better you will sound.  
  • Avoid saying yeah, uh uh, or other mundane sounding terms.
  • If the TV is on or there is loud music playing, please turn it down before answering.  It's very distracting.
  • Be prepared with pen and paper near the phone.  The employer may give you information that you should write down, such as, time for an interview,  address, phone number, etc.    
  • If you have a distinctive accent, please speak clearly so the caller can understand you.  
  • Finally, thank them for calling you.  The word "thanks" goes a long way!
