A perfect resume must adequately address several important areas. The areas enumerated below are the most important aspects a perfect resume needs to encompass. Please click on each area to review in more detail the important aspects of your resume.

PACKAGING & POLISH:

Another important feature of your resume is how it is packaged. That is, your resume needs to be presented in a highly professional manner.

The first component of a well packaged resume is the paper it is printed on. A thick bond paper should always be utilized. The area in packaging that is open for individuality is the color of your paper:

A light shade of paper is always most desirable, because it is the most subtle and leaves all of the attention on the writing on the page.

Shades of white, tan, light yellow, or light gray are the most bold colors that are recommended for resumes. Whereas there are careers that are founded on art and creativity, professional resumes should usually steer clear from bold or bright paper as a foundation.

The second component of a well packaged resume is the manner in which the text is printed upon it. Laser printers provide the most consistent and evenly distributed ink for a resume, but even more detail comes from the type of font you use for your resume.

Times New Roman is the most common font used for conservative documents, but font type is an area that resumes can be spiced up a bit. There are a variety of fonts on a regular word processor that can be used to heighten focus on particular areas in the resume.

Similarly, bolding, underlining, and italicizing can all be used strategically to enhance the overall package of your resume.

A good resume would use more than one font - but the use of fonts should not be overdone. A single font should be used for the entire document, with varying fonts used to highlight different topic areas on your resume.


COMPILATION:

How your resume is compiled is a large part of how your resume initially comes across to a potential employer. Good organization and detail are key components of a perfect resume.

A well compiled resume depends in large part upon what your individual strengths are. For instance, someone with a great deal of on-the-job experience would want to organize their resume so that attention is focused on this particular area. Another person with less job experience, but with other attributes, would want to compile their resume very differently from this person's.

A well compiled resume is extremely important in communicating the appropriate message to the employer. Not only do you want the employer to know that you are an organized individual, but you want the employer to be introduced to your strong qualities immediately upon inspecting your resume.


ORGANIZATION:

How your resume is compiled is a large part of how your resume initially comes across to a potential employer. Good organization and detail are key components of a perfect resume.

CLARITY:

A good resume needs to be clear in what is intending to communicate to the employer. This component of a perfect resume goes hand-in-hand with a well organized resume - but it is a little more specific.

This is where your resume will focuse in specific detail on your personal experiences. Depending upon what you want your resume to communicate to the employer will determine what specific details your resume should include.

For instance, consider a person with some experience in a restaurant as a cashier. Before that individual can determine how to include this job experience in their resume, they need to consider what exactly they want their future employers to garner from this experience.

If that person wants to communicate to an employer that they are a viable business candidate, then that person could mold their job experience from this job around their working hands-on with the company's money supply.

If that person wants to communicate to an employer that they work well with people , then that person would mold their job experience from this job around their interactions with customers on a day-to-day basis.


PROFESSIONALISM & CONTENT:

A good resume needs to communicate professionalism. This is done through every single aspect of your resume, from it's packaging down to its organizational style. An area not discussed thus far that also deals with the professionalism of your resume is the specific contents of the resume.

The first and most obvious areas of content to the resume are the section headings. Careful detail must be paid to choice wording for these headings, because poor semantics will make the entire resume look unprofessional.

Another area of importance on a professional resume is the specific wording used to describe all of your experience detailed on the resume. This is another area in need of careful detail, because it involves the specific communication to the employer detailing your specific experience.
