Claudia,

Your resume looks good. While I am no resume expert, I have 15 plus years experience of interviewing and making hiring decisions. One of the key factors of making you stand out is telling a potential employer is why they should hire you instead of the other person applying.

Some observations…

Assistant Manager, Nordstrom…

Under ‘creating of schedule’> Let the potential employer who and what your schedule is based on. I would say something like ‘Scheduled employee coverage based on business needs to provide best customer service’…anyone can write a schedule, but not everyone can do it based on business needs.

Yeah, I know I’m being a little picky and maybe that’s not such an issue, but based on my experience little things catch my eyes when resumes pass my desk. Perhaps someone here has resume writing experience but overall I think yours is fine.

The one thing that I don’t agree with is your resume ends with ‘US Permanent Resident- Eligible to work in the United States’…you’ve lived, studied and worked in New York. You don’t need to justify you’re Latin presence here. Would an Anglo, African American or Asian place that as incentive to consider them for employment…no.

I do hope my advice was helpful and I wish you the best in your search for a job you desire.

thank you
THANKS I MADE SOME REVISIONS BASED ON YOUR ADVICE
claudia,
I took a brief look at your resume and the first thing that caught my attention was the layout/appearance. I am including some links as an example of my preferred layout that has proven to be well received with recruiters in the past.

though my personal resume does not look exactly like any of these two posted here. its a combination of both these layouts which i believe will greatly enhance the image and presentation of your skills. The way you organize something on paper can say a lot about you and it always helps to make improvements here and there.

as far as the information itself, your bullet points are much to broad/general. try adding specific details or even numerical details as to your accomplishments. much like the 'schedule' comment below, stating results is much better than stating responsibilities...everyone is responsible for something at their job....but you have to state what you did with that responsibility.

hope this help.

I KNOW MY LAYOUT IS BAD I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE BULLETS THANK YOU AND CAN YOU PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHAT IS THE EASIEST WAY TO FIX MY LAYOUT I REVISED MY RESUME IT IS ATTACHED THANKS AGAIN
Hi Claudia,
One thing besides the resume... that I have not read......
Do not use Capital letters only.........
It takes a little longer to hold the key for capital at the begining of a sentence. paragraph, etc...but it looks a lot better and easy to read.
A very good friend gave that advice long ago and I pass it to you.

you have a lot of good experience. a few notes:

- be concise. summary is too long, state what you want to do next. tie in job experience to support points of why you
should be chosen
- reformat (look online for templates)
- make all type black
- put experience first, education last
- take off the eligible to work in US

REMEMBER: create a resume and cover letter for each job listing that you reply to. have a few basics that can be easily tweaked.

good luck!
