Along with glowing references, a solid resumé is a must-have for any job applicant. But even those with great credentials need to package those achievements the right way to catch a hiring manager’s eyes.

How can you get yourself noticed? Having the right keywords on the page -- words like “problem solving,” “leadership” and “team building” -- can be helpful. Beyond the content, presentation is also critical. Be sure to use proper formatting and avoid any information that’s not pertinent to the position you’re applying to.
