How to Update Your Food & Beverage Resume
Before you begin looking for a new job, take a look at your resume. Food and beverage industry recruiters and headhunters and corporate talent acquisition professionals sift through dozens of resumes every time they have a new job opening. You want your resume to stand out – to provide the best first impression of you and your skills in order to land that coveted interview. Follow Kinsa Group’s resume tips below to update your food & beverage resume.
Optimize Your Resume for the Job You Are Applying To
A resume should tell a story about your career and your accomplishments, but it should also be aligned with the job you’re applying for. We have a more specific blog series on how to optimize your resume. When writing your resume, make sure to highlight these types of specific details and accomplishments.
Take a look at your resume and see if it matches up with each bullet point on the job description. If not, update your information and make it easy for anyone to see how qualified you are for the job.
Form Your Resume as the Solution to the Company’s Problem Areas
Think of a job posting as a company’s way of listing all the ways they need help. If the job description aligns with your resume, it could be a good match on both sides. With the applicant pool being so competitive, you must find a way to market yourself above the rest.
Check out our blog on how to stand out with a strong food & beverage resume for even more tips.
Look at the problems the company has on the job description and think of all the ways you can solve them and be sure those details are in your resume.
Think of Your Resume as a First Impression
This is the easy stuff that a lot of people forget about. Take the extra time to represent yourself in the best light, yet be concise. Your resume should be packed with your accomplishments, yet simple to read through. Ask yourself these questions before finalizing your resume:
- Are there any spelling or grammatical errors? (These are sure to get your resume thrown out in a competitive market.)
- Is the font consistent throughout your resume?
- Does the format look good? (i.e. spacing, use of bold or bullet points, punctuation, etc.)
- How does it look overall?
