  • 7 Items to Include on Your Resume-

    Professional Website or Blog

    One of the first things employers look at when they research candidates is whether the individual has a professional website or blog.

    If you've created a professional website to showcase your expertise and accomplishments, you should definitely include a link to your website in your resume. Additionally, if you're an industry blogger, you might want to create a new section in your resume to talk about your blogging experience or outlets you contribute to. Even a personal blog (if it's work-appropriate) is a great opportunity to showcase your personal interests to your potential employer.

Your resume is often your first point of contact with a potential employer. In mere seconds, it must convey who you are and pique the interest of the hiring manager or else face being consigned to the recycling heap. General wisdom suggests that resumes be as concise as possible, but job seekers must be careful that they don't leave out important details. Eliminating critical information can be as damaging as a resume that just rambles on and on. In this slideshow, Heather Huhman, writing for Glassdoor, has identified seven items your resume may be missing.
