Before you submit your accounting resume, be sure to be clear about your objective, include your professional accounting experiences, and write the resume using action verbs. By doing this, you'll be well on your way to crafting an accounting resume that will land you your dream accounting job.

Haven’t landed that dream accounting job yet? Maybe your resume needs some tweaking. According to, ''There is such a thing as the perfect resume.” But how do you create it? I know I needed help when crafting my resume. Maybe you do, too. Below you will find three top tips that will eliminate the ''taxing” problems of resume writing, not to mention help you land your dream accounting job.

Tip # 1: Be Clear about Your Objective on Your Accounting Resume

Below your contact information, include a statement that clearly outlines your objective in the accounting profession, your career goals and/or your interests in the accounting field. Include titles that pertain to the accounting industry as well as titles that show your competencies in computers, tax programs, management, leadership, etc.

Tip #2: Experienced Accountants Should List Professional Experience at the Top of Their Resumes, While Inexperienced Accountants Should List Their Experiences Further Down

For those who are experienced accountants, include a summary of qualifications below your objective. Using between three and ten bullet points, describe your accounting-career accomplishments in terms of results.

For example: ''Proven track record of effectively representing the [accounting] needs of insurance and reinsurance companies.”

Here’s another: ''Published author on banking topics: ‘Today’s Banking Pitfalls and How to Avoid Them’ @ Banking Journal Int’l, Aug. 2002; and ‘Jurisdictional Issues in Credit Cases’ @ Creditors Daily Journal, Fall 2001.”

For those with less experience in the accounting industry, wait to list your work-related experiences further down your resume. Here you can simply list where you’ve worked in the accounting industry, what jobs you’ve filled, and, specifically, those jobs that have aided you in your accounting career.

Tip # 3: Strengthen Your Sentences by Using Action Verbs on Your Accounting Resume

According to ResumeApple, which is a professional resume writing service, ''Whether you use bullets or place structured phrases in prose form…you know that resumes must sound assertive, project confidence, and place you in a category above the rest. Using strong action verbs in your consistently structured phrases makes your resume easy to read; potential employers can retain more information about you. In addition, solidly written phrases establish that you will actively deliver in the position for which you are applying.”

As a writer, I saw this as a game, a way to get the most ''bang for my buck” when describing my responsibilities in just one to two lines. I tried using action verbs like managed, wrote, prepared, assisted, organized, performed, composed, etc. And you, too, can use verbs like these to strengthen your writing and prefect your resume.

In short, follow the above tips, and you won’t likely go wrong in your quest for an excellent accounting job.
