When applying for jobs, especially around the holidays when seemingly everyone is busy, you really have to make sure your application stands out. Besides including a killer cover letter, the best way to make sure you catch a hiring manager’s eye is with a well-written resume.

Luckily for you, Aditi Staffing, an IT staffing unit, has created a helpful infographic that will teach you the ins and outs of writing the perfect resume. Its easy-to-read design and simple steps make this a great printout to always inspire you to show off your best self.

Some key takeaways include: Make sure to fully understand the job you’re applying for before writing your resume. The style and format could be dramatically different if you’re applying for, say, a design job as opposed to something in research or operations.

Use keywords when you post your resume online, making sure to choose an appropriate title and include your achievements and education. Follow these steps, outlined in full below, and we guarantee those interview requests will start rolling in.
