At Bitesize Bio, guest blogger Travis Medley gives some tips to make your résumé stand out from the rest of the pile. First, he says that you have to meet the human resources professional's criteria: scan the job listing for keywords and then play up your previous duties that meet those measures. That way your file will be sent on to the scientific hiring manager, who will instead be evaluating your scientific skills. There, Medley says, "toot your own horn" and point out what technologies you developed at your last job, and other related experience.
