The U.S. unemployment rate is 3,7%, and more than 2023 tech workers were expected to be laid off in 191. But the opportunities are huge if you have the right job search tools, particularly a well-written resume. Forbes shared three techniques for writing a successful resume.

A resume is not just a list of your work history, but rather a marketing tool that demonstrates your skills, experience and the unique value you can bring to the company you are applying for.

There are 3 things that will help you master the art of resume writing and open the door to your professional goals, whether you're an experienced professional looking to climb the corporate ladder or a recent graduate starting your career journey.

1. Ask the AI ​​for help

At a time when the unimaginable has become a reality, artificial intelligence has evolved from science fiction to an integral part of our daily lives. You can use artificial intelligence to create an exceptional resume.

Remember that you should not rely entirely on it when writing your resume, it is better to effectively use the tips to improve its quality and provide personalized recommendations.

You can start with a request like: “ChatGPT, write a resume for [job title] for [x] years at [company].” This will give you a basic template format that you can fill in with your personal information.

You can also review your recent resume by uploading it and using the “Tell me how I can improve my resume” prompt, which will generate alternative phrases for better readability and highlight skills and experience you can include in your document.

If you're already viewing a job opening, you can use ChatGPT to get a list of relevant skills and experiences you can highlight on your resume by searching: “List the important skills I should include on my resume for [position] at [company] , which is looking for a person capable of performing [tasks].”

2. Use keywords that are in the job description

Hiring managers are also now freed from having to sift through job applications using applicant tracking systems (ATS) algorithms that scan resumes based on specific keywords and phrases that match the job description. According to one study, 97% of Fortune 500 companies use an ATS.

With the sheer volume of applications they receive daily, hiring managers only review a list of filtered potential mid-to-high qualified candidates based on established criteria.

For you, this means that you must match your qualifications to what they are looking for by using keywords in the job description they posted. Use the same or similar language in your resume as in the job description, such as mentioning specific software, tools, or industry terms. If the job description lists specific certifications, degrees, or qualifications that you have, be sure to mention those as well.

Always tailor your CV to each application, adjusting keywords to suit the specific requirements of the role. Strategically including keywords from the job description will improve your chances of passing the ATS check and attracting the attention of hiring managers who are looking for specific qualifications.

Send your resume to the right people

In the era of digital job search, where platforms like LinkedIn reign supreme, the convenience of the “Easy Apply” button can be irresistible, drawing job seekers into its network. As “flash” applications gain momentum, you must realize that this approach has pitfalls that will hurt your chances of standing out in a competitive job market. This format prevents you from tailoring your resume, and you also miss out on networking opportunities, such as talking to hiring managers and recruiters.

Remember that in addition to creating a resume that will stand out, you also need to make sure that it reaches the right people. If possible, apply directly through the company's official website - this will ensure that your application is sent through the appropriate channels and is more likely to be seen by recruiters. You can still use LinkedIn, but instead find the hiring manager or people in charge at the company and contact them to submit your application.

Getting referrals from people you know at a company can also increase your chances of getting noticed, considered and interviewed, so networking is key here.

As the job market becomes increasingly competitive, your resume is no longer just a document, but a marketing tool that will help you achieve your professional goals. Regularly review and update your resume to reflect your developing skills and experience, and keep up with industry trends.
