When you’re an accountant, you know that financial analysis is a key strength when you’re being considered for a position regardless of the field of company you’re trying to administer payroll for.
The copious profile area has had much success in giving jobseekers the chance to let their tax preparation abilities shine while emphasizing important sections such as income forecasting, certifications, and a bachelor’s degree.
The outline has a small-sized qr code with a link to an online portfolio adjacent to it.
Beautifully designed header containing a large checker board pattern with complimenting colors.
Keep in Mind:
- Your work experience is the most important part of your resume. It should provide the hiring manager insight into what you or the applicant completed in previous positions and how that experience or skill helped the business. Each work experience should have job duties listed in bullet point format within the work experience section of the resume.
- You may have worked in different roles or held different titles at different companies, but you can use the job description as a guide to determine what job duties you should include on your resume. For example, if you are applying for a job as a director of a children’s sports program, you may want to include job duties like “responsible for leading team of employees,” “management of a team of employees,” “head of operations” or “general manager.”
- The bullet points should highlight achievements rather than responsibilities. It’s important to keep the achievements specific and impactful without being too broad. Try to include numbers when you can to provide evidence of the impact you made.

Step 1: Write your dream job on your face. Now, I know some of you are thinking, “But ha! That’s easy! I’ll just write down what I want to do and it’ll make my resume look bad! ” No it won’t.
It’s so simple and yet packs a punch. It’s the resume you want to see when you pick up your resume kit. It’s the resume you keep wanting to plug in your computer. It’s the resume you feel confident walking into an interview with. It’s the resume you feel confident putting on social media and receiving a response.
I was struggling with how to write about my job. My job is in a niche area which I will not name, and it’s not what I want to do for a career. I was struggling with how to make my job into a positive thing instead of a negative thing. I now have a new set of eyes to look at it and it looks much better.
I used this template to successfully land a job as a project manager at a large tech company. I used this same template to successfully land a job as a sales rep at a startup company. I’ve used this same resume template to land a marketing internship at a large media company. All of these jobs were done through networking (me reaching out to the companies, getting their attention, and then having a job offer.
It’s simple. This means you have to focus on the most important information for your target job. It also means you have to be very concise. If you over-speak, your resume will be poorly written. It’s consistent.
I don’t like a lot of the usual resume advice that seems to contradict itself. It’s designed to fit perfectly on one page. It accommodates my non-traditional work history.
It looks clean. No more “objective” sections. Now I can put the info on the resume about my IT skills, my accounting skills, my management skills, my HR skills, my education, my special skills, my work history, my references, my charity donations, and my volunteering. That’s a lot of stuff to put!
I think the first thing is that I’m feeling a lot more confident in my ability to write a persuasive resume than I did before.
It allowed me to fit all the relevant information on one page and it kept my resume concise without me going over a page. I didn’t have to cut any fat to make it fit. I’m also starting to think that maybe my resume isn’t up to snuff in some areas. I’m sure there are plenty of things that can be improved.
I applied to 100+ jobs last year using my old resume and only got 1 interview. I used a resume service to create this resume and it was the greatest decision I had ever made. Not only did I get 1 interview, I got 3 call backs within a few days! That’s a pretty good track record I think.The other benefit I got was that the interview process was so much more fun.
