Create multiple versions of your resume, each providing additional detail on specific skills. Writing multiple resumes can be time-consuming, but it's a small price to pay for the job you want. Be absolutely clear and honest about your capabilities and skill levels.

If you're applying for a specific job, research the position and company. Pay attention to the job requirements, and highlight your qualifications as they reflect the hiring company's needs.

Be concise. Stick to the traditionally accepted formula of 1 page for every 3 years of experience, not exceeding 4 pages ever.

Omit personal information like sex, age, caste and country of origin.
Choose fonts that are easy-to-read, clean and consistent. Don't use non-traditional or overly creative fonts.

Read, edit and re-read your resume to make sure it's well written, clear and typo-free. Do it again. Then, ask your friends and family to do the same.
