Targeted Resume

Targeted Resume

A resume presents your qualifications, accomplishments, and education for a position you are seeking.

1.
Customize your resume for each KP job posting.

Your resume must be clear, concise, and compelling. Each time you apply for a job, your resume should be targeted to that specific position.

2.
Make sure your resume addresses all minimum qualifications in the job description.

Fill your resume with job-specific qualifications (keywords) that match the job description.

3.
Focus on achievements and skills, not just tasks and job responsibilities.
  • Showcase your capabilities by focusing on achievements and accomplishments, including details, that demonstrate your fit for the job you are targeting.
  • Use the “SAR” method (Situation, Action, Results) to emphasize your applied skills, achieved results and the impact you made. Learn more
4.
Develop a visually appealing, reader-friendly format.
  • Use consistent formatting, including font type and size, spacing and margins. Use correct spelling and grammar. Learn more
  • Your resume should be no longer than two pages.
  • Proofread your resume before submitting, have another person review it, or contact your BHMT Career Counselor to assist you.
