Did you know that you can learn a lot about writing a resume from that sexy, saucy little fashion item, the mini-skirt?
Whether you have worn one of these short skirts before, or have simply been an admirer, here are the tips that mini-skirts can give you about writing the most effective resume possible:
Just the Right Length
Your resume should always be the same length as a mini-skirt, long enough to cover the important parts but short enough to still be interesting.
It is crucial to include the most important details in your resume when applying for a job, such as relevant experience, education, and training. You will also want to include some descriptions of your previous roles and goals that you have achieved.
However, if your resume carries on for too long you will lose the interest of your reader. Your amazing accomplishments will not be as impressive if they are drowned within a sea of other bullet points and information.
The trick is to cut down your resume until you fit your top most impressive achievements and crucial information all on one page. Just like a mini-skirt, this will highlight your best “assets” and really get you noticed.
Careful How You Present Yourself
If you have worn a mini-skirt before, you know that you will need to be careful about how you walk, bend over, and sit down. You must keep your legs cross and your skirt pulled down, in order to avoid accidently exposing yourself to everyone else.
Being conscious about how you are displaying yourself to others can also be a good point to keep in mind when writing your resume.
If you don’t consider how your resume is being perceived, you might be unknowingly creating a bad first impression to your employer. Always double check your resume before sending it for spelling errors, typos, tone , and jargon, just like you would look down to check that your miniskirt is covering everything. You can even get a friend to read it over to catch the errors that you do not see.
