So you’re interested in applying for a job at Marriott International? The first step is getting your resume or CV ready and polished. Whether you’re starting from the beginning or just need to do some updating, we want to help you get your resume as far as your ambitions will take you. A resume is more than just a document. It’s like your personal representative going out into the world, talking in your voice. Remember, you have skills and experiences that help shape who you are and everyone has a story to tell so a well-crafted resume is key to getting that first bit of your story out there. How can you be sure your resume really stands out in the crowd? Here are five tips to get the attention of recruiters and hiring managers. Number one, be you. Your resume is a hiring managers first impression of you. Make sure it represents you accurately down to the last details. The importance of a good resume cannot be understated. It is your ticket to entry. Your resume speaks for you even when you aren’t there. Which brings me to tip number two. Be organized and relevant. Start with your most recent experience. If the job requires a specific degree or certification, then put that at the top and make sure to highlight all your achievements that make you a good fit for the job. Number 3, show results. Real results find a way to quantify the scope or positive impact you’ve had in your jobs. Make sure to use numbers. For example, including the number 11 helps it stand out way more than using the word eleven. People gravitate towards numbers . They are simple and measurable. Number four. Keep it simple. Don’t let the really important things get lost in all the details you provide. Think about the things you’ve done or the people you’ve helped that make you unique and worthy of a next conversation. At the same time, keep it simple also means not being overly technical in the language you use. Number five. Review, revise and review again. Spellcheck is critical but this goes way beyond spellcheck. Get another pair of eyes on it. Others will catch things you’ve missed and if they need clarification to understand something, it’s likely the recruiter or hiring manager will too. So be sure to rethink and revise anything that’s not clear. Remember, having a resume that represents you is the first step toward getting an interview. It shows not just your qualifications but also a bit about who you are as a person and that might be the key to helping you stand out from everyone else who has applied. Be sure to watch video number three to help prepare for that all-important interview.
