10 Tips to Write or Improve Your ResumeResume writing is an act of frustration and fear for some people because they do notreally know how to convey their experiences, qualifications and skills to stand outamong the other thousands of resumes that the employer has to look at. And rightlyso. The value of a powerful, high-quality, keyword-rich resume cannot beunderestimated.However, there are some key principles that are important to developing andimproving a resume that has little, a lot or no experience to the job that you areapplying for. Most recruiters will tell an applicant that what matters most to theemployer is a positive attitude, willingness to learn, experience related to the job if you have any and a stable employment history. But attitude, willingness and personality need to be presented in person during the interview. A powerful resumewill get you that interview.Here are ten tips for someone who may be trying to write or improve their resume:Include your personal contact information. You have to give the employer a way toreach you in the event that they want to hire you so as much contact information asyou can provide will be useful. Such information should include name, address, emailaddress, home telephone number, fax number, mobile number, and web address, if you have one. If you want to stand out from your competitors, a web address would be valuable.Be very specific. Don't beat around the bush. This means that you should detail your experience as an employee in whatever job capacity that you have worked, but makesure you emphasize how you carried out that job. Present a clear picture of what your daily tasks were. You don't want the employer to be doing any guess work. Usespecific terms. Instead of saying that you dealt with long term patient care, say thatyou cared for a specific age group of long term patients and state what their medicalconditions were. The employer may see you in a different capacity where another jobopening lies so you open up yourself to more than one positions.Watch what you say. Never use the wrong medical terminology. If you are not sure,do your homework before you write that resume to get the right medical term. Your resume should show quality and you should be committed to quality. For example,don't say Old Timer disease when it should be Alzheimer. You will never get that job.Be sure to list any certification and awards. Even if you consider something minor, besure to list that in your resume. Any special certifications or licenses should beincluded in your resume. Be sure to include any employee awards or anything thatshows above average work, you should incorporate it in your resume.Highlight additional skills. You should include information that may set you apartfrom other applicants, which includes being bilingual. In some cities such as Miami,
