Have an Introduction
Include an introductory statement at the top of your resume. An objective or summary statement is a one to two sentence statement at the top of your resume that briefly summarizes your qualifications, skills and background. A good introductory statement should let an employer know at the very start what value you would bring to the company.
Use the Right Buzzwords
Beacon Resources specializes in CPA recruitment and other finance jobs. Therefore, we look for resumes that are tailored to the finance industry. Be specific about finance degrees and certification that you have, industries in which you have experience and finance-related software you are familiar with. Also include space for any soft skills you have to offer.
When listing former jobs on your resume, don’t just catalog your job duties and skills. Also mention specific things that you accomplished in previous positions. Some accomplishments you might want to consider including on your resume:
- Promotions you received
- Awards or recognition you were given
- Things you accomplished, with specific numbers and figures when possible
- Positive changes you initiated or helped plan
- Major projects you worked on and how they benefited your employer
- Unique accomplishments rather than just generic job duties
