How do I create a resume to apply for work at home jobs?

Use action words in your Overview section of your resume

The Overview or Summary section of your resume should be a bulleted section which
briefly outlines your skills. Start each line with an action word, like this:


  • Designed an exciting website for a production company

  • Organized a team of sales professionals

  • Created a new advertising concept for a start up company which required
    an expert consultant

  • Sold over One Million Dollars in computers for an online business

As you can see, these types of action words get the attention of the reader
and emphasize your accomplishments.
