How to Create a Great Resume (Ultimate Guide)

Whether you're looking to land a better position, or entering the job market for the first time, a great resume is an important tool. It's what allows you to stand out in a pile of applicants, land the interview you're aiming for, and help secure the position.

But, it's not easy to create a resume, especially one that's effective. A great resume needs to: 

  • highlight your work history and strengths
  • fit your personal brand and story
  • customize to the job you're applying to
  • pack in professional language and best practices
  • read and scan effectively, while standing out visually

Those are just a few of the components needed. 

As you'd imagine, it takes quite a few skills to write a good resume, structure it effectively, fill it with powerful keywords, and tell a concise story that fits your strengths to the company you're applying to—all while immediately grabbing attention visually with an elegant, professional design.
