Get a Job in Canada – Tips For Proofreading Your Resume

When you apply for a job in Canada, mostly online from abroad and as international trained professional , because  you often send your resume as an email attachment and you never see or speak to the person on the other end of the computer your resume should be well proofread.

Unfortunately, that person on the other end of the computer has no idea who you are, other that what your resume says and the impression it creates. That is why your resume or portafolio must do the talking for you. Your resume or portafolio must show that you are qualified for the job, are more than the perfect candidate, and that you are professional. When it comes to reviewing or proofreading your resume, how can you go about doing so?

1.Print Your Resume
2.Look at Your Past Employment
3.Focus on Your Job Duties and Skills
4.Get Rid of Any Fluff

Finally, it is time to officially proofread your resume. Your goal here is to look for any spelling or grammar errors. You want to be careful if you used a free resume template online.

That is why you want to rely on more than those little red lines that alert you to a misspelled word. For extra protection, you may want to have a friend or family member proofread your resume for you.

By carrying out these above mentioned tips, you should now have a resume that showcases your professionalism, your job skills, and the fact that you are the perfect candidate for the job. If you have not already started, now is the time to do edit your resume. You can get started with the traditional way. Use our resume critiquing services at
