Living in Upper Kirby means living in the heart of one of the most vibrant dynamic and fast-growing cities in the country.

Houston has a robust job market, but with all these cool jobs comes lots of top-notch competition. Lucky for you, we’re here to help you stand out from the crowd.
In the blog post below, we’ll be sharing some up-to-date resume tips with our residents. If you’ve been in the same position for awhile, you might be a little out-of-date when it comes to knowing what employers are looking for when they recieve candidate’s resumes. That’s okay, because the blog post below will get you all caught up.
Without further delay, let’s dive right into this week’s blog post! Oh, and when you’re done reading through it, please be sure to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at your community of Greenway Plaza apartments.
Pay attention to design
Employers know that everyone has access to software that can make a resume look good. That means there is no excuse for having a resume that’s poorly designed. There’s no shame in using a template either; a good looking resume is better than an self-designed resume that leaves something to be desired in the design department. If you don’t feel confident with the design of your resume, ask someone to take a look at it and let you know if it looks good. A second opinion can go a long way.
Put the good stuff up top
The biggest difference in resume design over the past decade is the emphasis on the top third of the page. People are busier than ever and have shorter attention spans than ever, and yet you still have to find a way to get the hiring manager to read the important info on your resume. The best way to do that is by putting the info on the top of the page. Make sure your resume is editable so you can change this “up top info” depending on the job you’re applying for.
Keep it keyword friendly
Yes, even your resume needs to have keywords. These days, a lot of resumes go through a scanning software before they ever make it in front of real person. If you want your resume to make it through this first round of robo-reviews, you’re going to have to add the keywords that you see in the job description! You should be writing your resume based on the job description anyway, so this practice is only one small extra step in the grand scheme of things.
That’s all the resume advice we’ve got for you this week, residents!
