Keep in mind that when you submit your resume to a career hub or an employer’s website, your resume is added to a database along with the thousands of individuals already there. Special fonts are removed, layout is standardized, and all that’s left to separate you from the competition is the content. So make sure your resume includes key words or phrases that a recruiter or an employer might search for.
For example, if you’ve completed a GMP certification, make sure you’ve put that exact phrase in your resume, and make sure it’s visible. If you have experience with specific manufacturing equipment that could help you get a job (or at least attract attention to your resume), make sure to include it.
