Current Resume Trends


One of the most important elements in finding a new job is the resume (CV) . A recruiter often first reads your resume and then your cover letter. It's your calling card and the first impression someone gets from you. When applying, it's therefore important that you follow the latest trends in order to stand out with your resume.

What are the 'Usual' Resume Trends?

In this article I share the 3 most important resume trends.

1. A strong profile

A resume can no longer go without a personal profile, also known as the profile. It's the opening of the resume and is a short piece of text in which you write, for example, who you are, what you're looking for and what your ambitions are. Employers want to know what kind of meat they have in the tub. With a profile you try to profile yourself so that the company invites you to the interview. An example:

"I'm a driven care professional with a positive attitude and an excellent empathy. This is appreciated by both colleagues and patients. When I put a smile on someone's face, my day is complete."

2. Custom Resume

I have already mentioned it in several articles on this website. A custom resume with coordinated content is a crucial application and is therefore one of the resume trends. Facts, skills and keywords are used to show why you're suitable for this position at this employer. The resume is adapted to each application. Thinking from the company (what do they need?) Works to your advantage in grabbing attention. You have about 6 seconds to draw attention to your resume and to be invited to the interview. Make the resume short, simple and ready to eat.

3. Quantify performance

Even though you have achieved great things in your previous jobs, it's important to know how to properly display this information. Future employers want to see exactly what you have been able to do for your previous employers. The best way to present your skills and abilities is to convert your performance into numbers. Quantifying your performance means nothing more than calculating a percentage improvement or an increased proportion of a certain variable. You then assign this positive change to the actions you have taken to realize this. An example:

"You have increased the conversion of telephone calls by 15% through an improved approach to customer targeting."
