Writing an exciting resume that catches the attention of hiring managers is not an easy task. Employers are looking for capabilities and concrete examples of skills and abilities such as organizational leadership and involvement, a strong work ethic and a sense of commitment. Be detailed when describing your accomplishments. If you have had internships, summer jobs or academic accomplishments, make sure to include this experience on the resume. It may seem as if it is not important but its exactly the opposite.
Another favorite book of mine is Resumes For Dummies The Dummies series, as much as it is simple it can bring to light the many small details that you can take for granted. The Resume Handbook: How to Write Outstanding Resumes and Cover Letters for Every Situation is yet another good read. It can help you to get your resume up to par so that once in the hands of interested employers you will get immediate feedback and interviews.
