What’s the easiest way to write a resume? Read on for how to build a resume, the components required in an interview-winning resume, how to format your resume, options for saving your document, and tips for writing a resume that will catch the attention of hiring managers.

Once you’ve created your first resume or refreshed your old one, you can simply tweak it to match it up with a job when you’re applying for an open position. If you look at resume building as a step-by-step process, it will be easier to do and much less overwhelming.

1. Compile Your Personal and Employment Information
Before you get started, make a list of the contact information you want to use, all your jobs, your education, training, certifications, skills, and other credentials. It’s much easier to write, edit, and format a document when you have all the details you need in front of you. Collect all the information you need to include before you start writing your resume.

2. Choose a Resume Layout
With a combination resume, your skills will be listed first, followed by your employment history. With a functional resume, you’ll highlight your job qualifications. If you choose a functional or combination resume, tailor the information you include accordingly.

3. Write Your Resume
Don’t worry about fonts and formatting your document yet. When you have compiled all the information you need, it should be listed in the following order. Once you have everything down on paper, you will be able to adjust the font size and type, spacing, and add formatting options to your resume. Just get everything you want to include on the page.

4. Format Your Resume Text
The exception to that rule will be if you’re applying for a design-related position where your resume can showcase your design skills. When you’re choosing fonts for your resume, simple works best.
Lists vs. Paragraphs: Each sentence should provide a brief synopsis of your strongest accomplishments in the position. A job description that includes a bulleted list of achievements is easier to read than a paragraph.
Choose a Font: Consistency is also important! A basic font like Arial, Calibri, Times New Roman, or Verdana is a good choice because your resume needs to be easy for a hiring manager to read.
Font Size and Type: The font style and size can vary. Use bold and italics to highlight the details of your education and employment history. For example, you can use a larger font for your name and section headings.

5. Save the Document
Be prepared to save it in a variety of formats, like Microsoft Word, Google Docs, or PDF, for example, so that you can respond to employer requests for a specific type of document. It will be easier for the hiring manager to track your application materials.

Select a file name for your resume that includes your own name when saving your resume: janeapplicantresume.doc, for example.

6. Proofread and Print the Final Version
If you don’t have a printer you can use, check with your local library or an office supply store to see if you can access a printer there. Before your resume is finalized, it’s important to carefully proofread it. Then print a copy to make sure what’s on the printed page lines up with what’s on your computer. Once it’s set, print extra copies to bring to interviews with you.
