Help Wanted: Perfecting your resume in the new year

The new year may be bringing a new job search your way. Here are four ways to perfect your resume in the new year, according to U.S. News & World Report.

1.) Your career objective: You don’t necessarily need to label this on your resume, but it should reflect a professional purpose.
     
2.) Your layout: Once you have a professional goal in mind, you need to reexamine your resume to see if the layout helps or hurts.

3.) Your impact: A powerful resume communicates the impact of your roles, not just the tasks you performed.

4.) Your errors: Print out your resume. Too many times we miss errors by proofreading on a screen.
