Transcript

In this lesson, you edited the content and language of your resume to make it more specific and appealing to employers.

You updated your contact information, job history, and education; edited your resume to showcase particular skills; searched for action words online to enhance the language of your resume; made comments on your resume about future edits; and added specific examples with numbers or percentages to strengthen the descriptions of your achievements.

Before you send your resume to an employer, it’s a good idea to have someone else look over it and share their feedback.

And you may want to create different versions of your resume for each job you apply for so that each one shows you are a strong candidate.

The most effective resumes are persuasive, polished, and professional.

Emphasizing your best skills and experiences in a concise way shows an employer that you’re a unique, qualified candidate and a great fit for the job.

Resumes are also useful when applying for college applications, scholarships, and internships.

The digital skills you practiced in this lesson will help you succeed in your new role, too.

Editing your documents or emails before sending them makes you appear more professional.

Using more persuasive language can help you communicate more clearly and confidently to your boss or teacher.

And including specific examples in a presentation will help you share information more effectively with your co-workers or classmates.

Continue editing your resume to make it even stronger.
