A job ad is typically different from the job description. Job ads generally include certain elements of the job description, such as the essential functions and qualifications, as well as additional information to attract qualified candidates. Include a brief description of the job, company culture, and benefits when drafting a job ad.
Job descriptions should include basic details of the job, such as the job title, reporting structure, exempt vs. non-exempt status, and a job summary. Job descriptions should also list the essential functions, necessary qualifications, and skills required. Additionally, include a statement that your company reserves the right to change job duties at any time and that the job description is not designed to cover every requirement of the job.
Job descriptions serve multiple functions. For hiring purposes, employers use them to identify the essential functions of the job and the qualifications needed for the role. Job descriptions also help set clear expectations for employees. Additionally, employers can refer to job descriptions to assess performance, make compensation decisions, and identify training needs.
The appropriate length for your resume depends on several factors. The most important thing to keep in mind is to make sure your wording is concise, to the point, and is not redundant.
Write your resume without paying attention to the length first. Once you have the content in place you can edit it to fit nicely on the page(s), deleting extraneous information where needed.
Padding your resume to try to look like you have done a lot by including irrelevant information is likely to backfire. If a significant portion of the material you list is not going to demonstrate your qualifications or significant accomplishments, you are more likely to be showcasing that you are not the right person for the job.
One-Page Resume: If you are new to the job market and lack a long work history, then a single page resume is likely sufficient. In many cases, the same can be true if you have only one or two employers for whom you have worked in the same role for many years. If you find yourself struggling to find the skills and accomplishments to fill the space, don’t force it beyond a single page.
Two-Page Resume: The most common resume these days is two pages in length. If you are established in your line of work, and have 3 or more significant past employers, two pages is probably right. If you are new to your career, but have significant academic or technical training, then a two page resume may also be right for you.
Three-Page Resume: There are some cases where a three page resume is appropriate, but they are rare. Academic jobs such as professor generally expect a C.V. instead of a resume. This special class of resume includes many additional sections not listed on a traditional resume, such as publications. In addition, senior level executives may have enough relevant job experience in a variety of roles to justify three pages. Finally, if you are applying to a position abroad, check with the resume expectations in that country since some will expect a longer form resume than employers in the States.
The Following are the most common resume formats that are used and that most recruiters expect to see:
Reverse Chronological: This resume format is the most common and it is designed to showcase your work history in chronological order with the most recent job at the top. This is the preferred format for many hiring managers. It is a great choice if your career path demonstrates a clear arc pointing right to the job you are applying for as the next logical step.
Functional: A functional resume is grouped into skill sections which adds an emphasis on your specific qualifications for the position you are applying for while deemphasizing your job history. This format can be a solid strategic choice when you have a non-traditional career path, are making a significant career change, or have work gaps that may be glaring if presented in chronological style.
Hybrid: In many cases, a combination of the two styles may be your best bet to put your best foot forward on a resume. By combining elements of each style, you may be able to tell a story with your resume that is the strongest fit possible to the exact position you are applying for.
Customizing your resume to each position you apply to is critical to make it through the initial screening process (now automated using keyword algorithms at many larger companies). In addition, tailoring your qualifications to the advertised job description is your best chance to be visualized as a strong fit from the perspective of hiring managers.

Business Dress – Men
The general dress code guidelines for men during an interview are that they wear suits in navy blue or dark blue. This is preferred over gray or charcoal gray. Sometimes brown can be acceptable but not on the first interview. Usually, the darker the suit, the more authority it carries. But beware; a man should never wear black to an interview unless he is applying as an undertaker. A two piece suit is acceptable as is a three button single breasted jacket. What matters most is that the suit fits well and it is good quality. The trousers should fit comfortably at the waist and a slimmer fit is preferred. There should only be a slight break where the trouser hits the shoe. If your ankles are showing, they are way too short.
A man at an interview should always wear a long sleeved shirt either in white, cream or pale blue. Monograms are not a good decision on the first interview. If you tend to perspire often, cotton shirts are the way to go professionally cleaned and starched. The higher the cotton content, the better the shirt will look. Make sure your shirt fits the neck properly and that the sleeve cuff ends just at the wrist. All your interview clothes should be professionally cleaned and pressed and ready to go.
Ties that are cheap looking do not give off a good first impression. A pure silk tie makes the most powerful professional impact, has the best finish and feel, and is easiest to tie well. The tie should complement your suit, not match it. No outlandish, flamboyant ties are necessary. The length of the tie should be extended to your trouser belt.
Shoes should be brown or black leather. No other materials or colors are acceptable. Socks should complement the suit, blue, black, gray, or brown. A briefcase is a symbol of authority, which makes a strong professional statement. Brown or burgundy are the colors of choice.
As with women, men’s jewelry should be kept to a minimum. No visible body piercing or tattoos -if you can help it.
This clean cut, well manicured image says a lot about a professional man. He should smell wonderful, have a nicely trimmed hair cut and appear clean and crisp. Good luck.
Business Dress – Women
Like it or not, the first impression people get from you is your appearance. When engaged in an interview or you are already hired, you always want to look best. Clean cut, professional looking people get treated like a professional. How you dress sends specific signals to people. Let’s start from head to toe for women. First of all, never wear too much jewelry or makeup. One item of jewelry is enough. A small ring on one finger, or small earrings is plenty. No big loops ladies. Makeup should be conservative, just plain powder or concealer and barely any eye makeup. No lipstick is appropriate at an interview. It is just not professional.
The woman’s suit should be wool, linen, or cotton/polyester. Stick with navy, gray, and medium blues, at least for the first interview. As for blouses, solid colors and natural fabrics, such as cotton or silk look clean and professional. A scarf says a lot about a business woman; it is a powerful status symbol. Shoes should never be open toed and stay within 2 ½ inch heels, nothing faddish or multicolored. The color of your shoe should be the same or darker than your skirt. Pantyhose should always be neutral skin tones, nothing outlandish, unless you are interviewing in the fashion industry. A briefcase is an excellent choice for a business woman, but don’t bring along your purse too. It looks awkward trying to juggle them around. You should choose either brown or burgundy, black or navy, either one is fine. You do not want to ever distract the interviewer with your outfit, makeup or accessories.
Last but definitely not least is your personal hygiene. Bad breath, dandruff, body odor, and dirty un-manicured nails do not give a good impression. When it comes to body odor, you are what you eat. If you consume a lot of garlic, onions, cilantro, and junk food, not only will it show in your skin, but it will seep through your pores. Gross. Make sure you eat a natural healthy diet so you always smell pleasant.
