A resume is an important representation of you. It is more than just a statement of your objective and a documented inventory of the jobs you’ve held and duties performed. It is an opportunity for you to advertise your skills, experience and knowledge in an attempt to capture an HR or hiring manager’s attention; an attention that spans around 5 minutes or less in time. So make sure you promote yourself using the descriptions that are current, accurate and aligned with the type of job you desire. Here are a few tips to help your resume stand out in a crowd.

Having a resume that captures attention is much like the impression you make when you first walk into an interview. You’ve got up to five minutes to shine the moment a hiring manager sees your resume so make sure you present the best representation of you to capture and keep their interest.
