There are several things you can put on your resume and discuss in your interviews that can help boost your worth.
Actually they don't help boost your worth; they help prove you're worth more than the average person applying for the job.
Simply put anything that positions you as a top performer in your job or describes situations in which you performed above the level of your job will help increase your market value. For example, effectively managing people is often a valuable trait. If you have managed more than the typical number of people for your position and/or have some demonstrable superior skills, show that in your resume.
If you have ancillary experience beyond the standard job responsibilities, those should be called out. Employers will often pay more for a person they believe has proven the ability to achieve critical results, whatever those may be for the job.
Some simple advice to boost your resume:
Grammar and spelling errors are usually like the worst nightmares for your resumes. They will show the employer that you fail to pay attention. Remember that computer spell check will most of the times will not pick up the errors. Therefore, you will have to proofread it yourself before you send it. You can ask your friend to read it for you and check if there are any mistakes.
Always organize your resume in such a manner that is reflects your recent job first and also has the date of employment along with it. Employers will always prefer a over functional resume, which will be best if you are planning to switch careers. Otherwise, it will become difficult for the employer to figure out where you have worked and for how long.
All your sentence should be short and you must not worry about fragments. Try to leave out all the personal pronouns like "my", "I" and "me". Always remember that whenever you write "I have performed" or "I can demonstrate" then it always means redundant. Who else will be talking about this if not you?
Avoid the articles "the", "an" and "a". Instead or writing "Helped in special events for the farewell," try to simplify by writing, "Managed farewell in special events."
Remove terms like "helped with," "participated in," and "assisted in". If you have assisted in handling the client accounts, then write "Managed all the client accounts." Later, in the personal interview you can describe what the role entailed.
Change all the passive sentences into active verbs. Writing "Coordinated client discussions" instead of "Ensured client discussions were well coordinated" will extra that extra punch and a little job clarity to your job description. Remove words like "duties" and "responsibilities" inside the job listings.
Always remember that your resume must only focus on accomplishments and not on your tasks.
Try to format your resume for consistency and easy readability. Underline, bold or italicize all your important accomplishments. However, avoid all the three things together that is simply over-the-top. Make a bulleted list instead of paragraphed information. For most of your resume use the font Arial or Times New Roman in 12 point.
Fancier fonts are difficult to read, and they also become congested in e-mail format. Try to combine a set of short odd jobs in any one listing.
Reading your resume to yourself will help you in identifying all the areas, which may need a little clarification or improvement. If something does not sound right, then it won't sound the same to hiring manager either.
