5 Essentials of a Stay-at-home Resume

64

For those of you who are looking for stay-at-home jobs, make sure that your resume is packed with flavor and effectiveness. An impactful resume is the shortest route to getting shortlisted for your dream job, especially one that involves being paid for working from home. 

Your job here is to perfect your resume and make it shortlist-worthy. 

So here are the 5 essentials of a stay-at-home resume:

  • Provide your contact information

While this may sound like a glaringly obvious statement, it is important to be extra cautious while drafting your resume for stay-at-home jobs. You should go the extra mile to ensure that you don’t overflood it with useless information that is trivial.

The first hygiene checks you should take care of while composing your stay-at-home resume is to ensure that it has the following details to help an interested recruiter get in touch with you:

  • Contact Number
  • Email Address
  • Current Location

Doing this will help a recruiter reach out to you, must they like what they see in your resume.

So now that we have this sorted, let us now move on to the other essentials of a stay-at-home resume.

  • Provide Your Accurate Profile Title

The recruiters should be able to comprehend your professional identity with ease as it helps them decide if you’re fit for the freelancing opportunity you are after. 

You can give them an insight into where you stand professionally through your profile title. You can be an entry-level applicant or a senior-level applicant, either way, you need to make that crystal clear in your profile title so that the recruiters can easily recognize your functional industry. 

For instance, if you’re a senior lifestyle writer with freelancing experience, your profile title can be framed in the following manner:

Example: “Senior LifestyleWriter & Former Freelance Writer”

Framing your profile title in the above-stated manner will tell a potential recruiter that you have writing experience, that lifestyle writing is your main forte, and that you have substantial experience in freelance work. Doing this has far-reaching impacts that transcend the realms of information presentation.


Writing an accurate profile title also helps a recruiter gauge your suitability for the given freelancing or remote opportunity in one go. 

Just communicating that you’ve done it before means that you can be entrusted to do it again. So play your cards wisely, and make sure your profile title is both accurate and informative.

  • Show your work ethic and professionalism in your resume

The beauty of freelancing or remote stay-at-home jobs is the freedom that comes with it. 

The best part is that you can work at the timing of your convenience. What matters is that you get the job done and you do so effectively.

However, this freedom comes with a price, and the price looks a lot like your resume. 

How you are able to reflect your effectiveness in your stay-at-home resume is what will help you land the job in the first place. So your goal here is to structure your work experience details in such a manner that you can reflect your work ethic and professional quality without having to explicitly state it. 

For instance, for remote work and freelancing opportunities, recruiters look for professionals who are effective workers and adhere to deadlines.

Demonstrating skills on resume showcases your commitment to deadlines and instances achievements for your contributions and presenting that in the professional experience section can help.

Let’s say you’re targeting freelance writing jobs and you’ve worked as a writer, you can draft an example on how to draft this:

  • Achieved the “Best Editor Award” for delivering outstanding work throughout the year
  • Wrote plagiarism-free articles & delivered them at the stipulated TAT on a consistent basis
  • Corresponded with authors and proofread 10+ articles weekly with 100% client satisfaction

By composing the details of your roles & responsibilities in the professional experience section in the above-stated manner, you can easily make an impact on the recruiter.

For instance, in the above statements, not only is the writer giving an account of the work that they have done, but has also stressed on important aspects of their professional caliber such as:

  • Ability to adhere to strict deadlines
  • Ability to work according to client’s instruction and satisfaction
  • Ability to create plagiarism-free and engaging articles
  • Ability to consistently deliver outstanding work

 

  • Provide educational & certifications details 

The degree that you have achieved and the certifications you have done add as a positive buffer and gives you an upper hand at getting shortlisted.

While your educational information tells a recruiter about your proficiency and theoretical knowledge in your chosen field of study, the certifications you have done attest to your industry-readiness.

So showcasing these details in your stay-at-home resume is a must.

If you don’t know how to list certifications on resume, perhaps now’s the best time to learn. Endorsing your education details with perfection is also a skillset you should muster. 

Here’s a few things that should be illustrated in both:

  • Name of university/certifying body you have attended
  • Name of the course/certification you have pursued
  • Location of your university/certifying institute
  • Enrollment and graduation dates in months & year format
  • Compose an effective summary 

Think of a summary on resume as the cherry on the cake and a ribbon on a gift – it brings your resume together.

Now that you’ve furnished your resume, the next part is to conclude it, and your job is to conclude your resume effectively so that you’re able to leave a lasting impression on the recruiter.

Knowing that an average recruiter spends roughly 6 seconds on a resume, the summary of your stay-at-home resume should be extremely impactful in the message it delivers. Its job is to convey relevance and competence.

Here’s an example of an editor’s resume summary for a stay-at-home writing and editing job:

Conclusion:

You have reached the end of this article. 

Here’s a quick overview of the main highlights of this article:

  • Providing contact details is a must. It helps a recruiter get in touch with you.
  • Your profile title should effectively communicate your functional industry and job title.
  • The professional experience section should communicate your work ethics & competence.
  • Your educational & certifications details should always feature on your stay-at-home resume.
  • The summary of your resume should conclusively demonstrate your suitability and ideal-ness for your target stay-at-home job.
