3 Ways to Create a Recession-Proof Resume

Itís no secret that a recession is one of the toughest times to find employment. With millions of workers looking for positions, your competition is incredibly steep. The good news is that job seeking during a recession doesnít mean you canít be hired. It does mean, however, that you will need to work to secure a job. A great way to increase your chances of being hired is by creating a recession-proof resume.

What is a Recession-Proof Resume?

A recession-proof resume is one that is able to get you hired under the toughest of economic conditions. With dozensóand sometimes even hundredsóof job seekers vying for the same position, itís pertinent that you find ways to make yourself stand out from the pack.

The recession-proof resume is able to accomplish this goal because it brings forward your strongest qualities as a professional in your field. It helps ensure youíre able to find a quality job even when it seems no one is being hired, making it immune to the conditions of a recession.

3 Tips for Writing a Quality Recession-Proof Resume

So how can you create a resume that you believe will get you hired, even in the midst of a recession? Here are three tips to help you as you write:

1. Think from the perspective of success: Itís easy for job seekers to simply jot down a general summary of their professional background, which doesnít give employers a good indication of how you can make a difference for them. So as you write, think about all of the successful moments of your career, then list very specific accomplishments that prove you can make the same progress with a new employer.

2. Focus on keywords and phrases: Itís important to always remember that most employers utilize resume scanning software that helps them determine almost immediately how closely your background matches their qualification requirements. To give yourself a leg up on the competition, itís important to utilize job-specific keywords and phrases found in the job posting that show you are indeed a good match for the position.

3. Prove youíre specialty driven: If youíre applying for position as a human resources manager, for instance, itís important that you prove youíre well trained in human resources. Take time to list your duties in action-oriented phrases, mention at least one major accomplishment per position, and be sure to highlight special training or programs youíve been involved with that make you more qualified than other candidates.

Finding employment during tough economic times is not a simple task because so many qualified candidates are submitting their resumes at the same time. But donít let the steep competition deter you. Instead, step up your resume-writing creativity so that yours is so amazing that employers canít help but choose you for the position.
