Here are 3 resume tips to help land you an interview:
 
1. Focus. Your resume must target a specific job function and include only your most relevant work experience.
 
2. Show results. Just listing tasks you’ve performed doesn’t answer “So what?”. Make sure employers understand the results you’ve achieved.
 
3. Be concise. Highlight your accomplishments but also leave the reader wanting to learn more about you. A recruiter will be intrigued to reach out for an interview.
 
Remember to proofread your resume and upload it to Racing Toward Diversity Magazine so that employers can find and contact you about your next job.
