    How To Transform Your Resume: Tips From Our Santa Maria Recruitment Company

    Express Employment Professionals Central Coast is a recruitment company that connects workers in Santa Maria, the Five Cities, Oceano, San Luis Obispo, and the surrounding communities with jobs in hospitality, tourism, general labor, administration, and skilled labor. Here's a few tips to upgrade your resume from so-so to standout: 

    • Make sure you have white space. From the experts at our Santa Maria recruitment company, a good rule of thumb is to print off your resume and make sure there's plenty of white space. It gives you a good sense of how cluttered your resume is. You should always have 1 inch margins around the border and use at least single spacing. 
    • Always include a clear list of skills. Start your resume off with a distinct summary of skills. If you're not sure what to include, refer to the job posting. (Yes, that means personalizing your resume to each job you apply for!) Does the posting ask for experience with power tools? Customer service experience? If you've got, include it!  
    • Be specific wherever you can.  At our Santa Maria recruitment company, we know that a vague resume can make it difficult for managers to truly understand your level of skills and experience. Do you know Spanish, French, or another language? Describe your fluency level. If you've worked in customer service, how many years of experience do you have? Be specific wherever you can.  
    • Have someone read it over. Last but not least: have a friend or family member proofread your resume. Ask them to check grammar and spelling. But also ask them about clarity. Do they understand your skills and certification? Is anything confusing or unclear on your resume? A second pair of eyes can be invaluable at this stage.
