Key words and phrases to include in your resume for 2017

19-04-2017

There was a time when the recruiting world was bursting at the seams with “Ninjas”, “Gurus”, and “Rock Stars” of varying different fields and areas of expertise. 2015 was the height of this trend, where companies worldwide were looking for ways to ‘Jazz up’ their job opportunities and attract a certain type of individual.

Despite there still being an absurd amount of job listings on platforms such as LinkedIn that ask for ninjas, gurus and rock stars, the resume writing game has taken a more serious turn in 2017. While it was originally a good way for companies to try and portray a fun & modern office culture, now it simply seems to be a thinly veiled attempt at attracting talent willing to work considerably harder in a position and for a considerably smaller wage.

The focus in 2017 has become hard evidence that shows clear and quantified results. Writing a resume that will be taken seriously requires impeccable diction and grammar, as well as proof of the experience and achievements you claim to have. Often in positions higher-up the corporate ladder, resumes will be dismissed if not written to an expected standard, sometimes before even being read fully.

A sensible way to approach a resume in 2017 would be creating focus around points that show, clearly, where you have excelled and benefitted your past employers. Words like managed, achieved, redesigned, modernised, optimised are all excellent precursors to hard figures that showcase your skills and how you applied them to your previous roles in order to reach new heights and complete goals that you were set or that you even set for yourself.

Placed correctly in your resume, these sort of words can really transform an interviewers’ visualisation of you, your skills, work ethic and experience. 2017 is the time for people who have provided clear, quantifiable results in past roles to shine when writing their resume.

Industria strongly encourages writing your CV with these points in mind, as it will increase the likelihood of interviews sitting up and taking notice when it comes to you being under the spotlight.
