3. Run Apple Pages and Consolidate Your Qualifications
A neat-looking design is only part of creating a compelling resume -- you also need to fill it up with the kind of assets that will interest employers the most. Create a short and concise list to showcase your professional aspects that are relevant to the position. It helps to include additional qualifications that aren’t immediately relevant, but they need to contribute to landing you the job.
Things like past work experience, educational background, references, contact information, etc. are all par for the course; however, don’t overload the contents with anything irrelevant to your application. Maintain a resume that looks tidy and is easy to go through.
A form of introduction can really help in selling yourself to the recruiter. When writing, your words should sound confident about why you’re fit for the job; however, not to the point of coming across as obnoxious nor cocky. Lastly, don’t add any false information, as employers do background checks and will eventually discover that you’re lying.
4. Don’t Forget to Save
Before mailing, make sure to go over your work and check for anything that needs correcting. Once everything is in order, remember to save your edit and your shiny new resume is ready to be sent out. Prove your worth as a chef with Apple Pages and our versatile document templates!
