The whole point of resume writing and screening has been redefined during the past decade. In the old times, candidates were hired on basis of resume alone. These days, due to excessive competition, candidates are only shortlisted for an interview on basis of their resumes. This means the purpose of your resume is not to get hired, rather it is to get an interview call.

The first step while creating a resume for apartment cleaner position must therefore be to revolutionize your thinking pattern. Stop thinking like a candidate and start thinking like an employer. Once you understand how the application process works, it really takes just a bit of common sense to hit the mark with your resume. You can further beautify the same by topping up the sentences with action packed verbs.
