Recruiters generally spend 2–3 minutes while going through your resume. You neither want them to waste their time on a long 2–3 page resume nor do you want irrelevant information in your resume. Tailor down your resume to a single page. You can include a short summary about you, your education, your work experience, projects, skills, interests or hobbies, awards (if any) and your social links to get to know more about you. Some of you may argue that if you have a portfolio then why do you need a resume? While portfolios are able to show the depth of your skills, Resumes help to know the breadth of your skills. A resume is a short crisp tailored version of your portfolio. First, Recruiters would want to know that the candidate can do the job and has necessary skill sets required for the job then he would want to know how the candidate approaches the problem, his passion, and values. Therefore, Resume screening is the first stage in the recruiting process.
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.
Now, its time to make your resume look visually appealing. In this case, that means producing a document that is legible above all else. The information should be enough to grab the attention of whoever is reading it, so your color and design choices should be relatively subdued by comparison. Start by choosing an appropriate typeface. You should use the same one throughout the resume to keep things consistent, unless you want to use a complementary font to distinguish your contact information from the other sections. Choosing a sans serif typeface will make your writing easily legible and prevent it from being incompatible with an automated screening program — Helvetica, Calibri, and Trebuchet MS are all good options.
