How to make a resume
If you are just out of school or want to switch to a different job, but never have had to have a resume, you might be wondering just how to make a resume that will help you stand out and get that new job. Don't worry. It is not difficult to make a resume that will impress potential employers and quite possibly get you the job of your dreams! We can give you some great tips on how to make a resume that will get attention!

To begin with, you will want to put your resume on a thicker paper. Go to your local discount store, and they will have many to choose from. These papers are thicker than regular copy paper and usually have a bit of texture to them. You can buy this type of paper in colors, and we highly recommend this. When you learn how to make a resume, you want not only your words and experience to stand out, but your resume itself as well. If you put your resume on colored paper, a potential employer is likely to notice it over the other ones on plain white stock!

Use a font that is easy to read but unique. If you are learning how to make a resume in Microsoft Word, you will have a variety of fonts to choose from. Do not just stick with the default font (Times New Roman). You want to stand out, so pick another font, but make sure it is easy to read and not too "campy". That means you probably won't want to use the teeny tiny "Grantedi" font, but you also won't want to use the "Halloween" font either!

When learning how to make a resume, you should include information about yourself like your job experience, your education, your skills, any special acknowledgements or achievements, and anything that makes you especially unique and suited to the job you are applying for. Your resume is a one or two page story of your abilities and experience that will speak for you on a potential employer's desk. You want him or her to call YOU, so it should stand out and look unique while still being professional.

If you want to know how to make a resume that is professional yet makes you look wonderful, there are a lot of great tools on the Internet that can help you along the way. Microsoft Word even includes some resume templates that you can just fill in with your personal information and be on your way. We can't personally show you how to make a resume, but you sure can do it if you use the resources at your fingertips and be well on your way to a new and wonderful career!
