Writing a resume in 2023: what elements to include?

A resume is divided into several sections. The first section focuses on work experience, outlining your career path by presenting all the positions you have held. The second section provides information about your educational background, specifying the degrees you have obtained and the courses you have taken. Lastly, there is a section for interests. Today, recruiters place significant importance on both technical skills and soft skills (personal competencies). It is wise to include this information on your resume to maximize your chances of success.

How to make your resume attractive?

It can sometimes be challenging to include all these elements on a single page, especially when you have a rich career history. The difficulty lies in providing all the important information while creating an attractive document. To achieve this, you need to pay attention to the presentation of your resume, making it as clear as possible. Focus on the essentials by summarizing the information. You can create a resume using word processing software or free online tools. Regarding the layout, adopt the following best practices:
- Choose a classic and readable font
- Opt for sober colors
- Highlight certain elements in bold or italics

How to write a standout resume?

To differentiate yourself from other candidates and increase your chances of being selected, focus on the content of your resume. You can detail your experiences in chronological order, listing the names of the positions held for each period. Be sure to include examples of tasks you completed. If you are just starting out, it might be more effective to match your skills with situations where you have applied them. You can also combine these two approaches by organizing your experiences from the most recent to the oldest and highlighting the skills you developed in each role.
