How to Write the best resume in Kenya

Writing a resume can be an intimidating task, but it is necessary for almost any job. Fortunately, there are some simple steps to follow to improve your chances of getting an interview. 

First, you should determine the type of resume that is the most appropriate for your current skill level and the type of job you are applying for. Generally speaking, a chronological resume is best for someone who is applying for a job in a similar field and has a solid work history. On the other hand, a functional resume may be better for someone who is changing careers or has limited experience. 

Once you have chosen the type of resume, you should determine the format. This will depend on the type of resume you have chosen, but most resumes should include contact information, a summary statement, a list of your qualifications, work experience, and education. Make sure to include any relevant skills, awards, or certifications. 

The next step is to choose the right words and phrases to describe your experience and qualifications. Use action verbs to describe your job duties, such as “developed,” “managed,” or “implemented.” You should also use keywords from the job description to show that you have the skills and experience the employer is looking for. 

Finally, you should proofread your resume several times and make sure there are no typos or grammatical errors. Ask a friend or family member to review your resume and give you feedback. If possible, have a professional editor or resume writer look over your resume for a more thorough review.

By following these steps, you should be able to write the best resume for your skills and experience. Show your potential employer that you are the perfect candidate for the job by presenting yourself in the best light.
