First things first, open up a blank document in Word. Then, navigate to the Page Layout tab, click on Margins and select Narrow. This will allow us to use more of the page, which is very important for a resume. You are looking to give whoever reading it as much information about you as possible, but ideally you should be able to fit all of it onto one page. Now, add in your contact information at the top of the page. The specifics will vary depending on the country you live in and the field you work in, but generally anyone reading your resume will be looking to see your full name, an email address, a contact telephone number, and your physical address.
Researching about companies and roles you are applying before also helps to figure out what skills recruiters are looking for in the candidate. Don’t forget to mention these specific keywords which they are looking for. Mention a short description of your work experience including these keywords. You should also mention the value added by you in the business (like % conversion increased). Recruiters would rather read about your accomplishments than your job description. For example, They know what a UX designer does, but what specifically did you do? Did you design and help launch an app? Did you design 50 wireframes? Did you build a design system? Did you drive utilisation up by 50 or 200%? What was your impact on the company (product, culture, bottom line)? Mentioning metrics also give a quantitative measure to judge your skills better. Also, write each work experience in a reverse chronological order. When presenting work history on a resume, the recruiter is more interested in what the candidate has done recently than in the distant past. It also presents the recruiter with the most recent work experience first and then allows them to read back in time to see how the candidate career has progressed.
Its so different how the resume should look like depending on the country. Its a cultural thing. In countries like Germany, Japan, and China, its generally preferred with a professional photo. Its easier to remember the applicant. Therefore, I recommend researching the company well before sending your resumes. I prefer to generally remove the photo from the resume. Removing photos would also give me more real estate to show more information. Remember space utilisation is utmost crucial in a resume.
