Understanding Resume Styles

By David Green

Perfecting the perfect resume style can be tricky. Many job seekers don't really understand the ins and outs of resume creation and only think about their resumes when they are actively seeking other employment. Many recruiters agree that such an approach can actually leave your resume lacking in both style and content.

Living Resume Style

Do you have a living or non-living resume? A living resume style is a document that is continually updated over the course of months or years. It isn't simply updated when you are looking for a job. So if your employer gives you a new task or you learn a new skill, you would update your resume to reflect that. This resume style is ideal for a number of reasons.

First, it lets you get a clearer picture of where you may be headed in your career. You may begin to notice patterns and tendencies towards a particular job or field. Maybe you have always had a love for graphics or public speaking, but never realized it until you sit down with your resume. Second, a living resume style will allow you to accurately document your skills. Writing your resume after a nasty fight with your boss isn't the best way to approach things. Instead write your resume when you are clear headed and comfortably employed.

Past, Present, Future Resume Style

It is important to remember that a resume is about where you have been, where you are, and where you are going. Most job seekers focus on the present- but do little to discuss the past and future. To get the upper hand, you want to have a resume style that focuses on all aspects of your work including what you plan to do in the future. Remember, your resume is a work in progress and will never be finished.

Final thoughts on Resume Style

Last but not least, you want to keep abreast of what is happening in the world around you. The internet and online job applications have changed the way that many recruiters do business- so it important that you have an online resume as part of your job seeking portfolio. Recent problems with viruses and spyware have lead many recruiters to stop accepting attachments, so you will want to become aware of the ins and outs of plain text resume formatting.
