Need to get some attention with your resume?
Resume Tricks that Actually Work -
Bullet the top of your resume with as many of the skills you have that match the job description. Be specific to what the company needs.
All very important information needs to go on the top half of your resume - not the second page or the third page. Fold your resume in half to make sure that everything important - top skills, email address, phone etc fits up there. The top half is the prime "real estate" section.
Don't forget your phone number and LinkedIn profile link! I've had resume sent to me with no contact info. It's about the details.
Mail - Don't just email your resume --- USPS mail your resume. No one gets actual mail anymore so you have a better chance of getting some attention if you actually old school mail it. Seriously when is the last time you got a real letter?
