 Resume Writing


AT ATB Financial, jobs are awarded based on the required skills, competencies, and qualifications of the role.

Putting your best foot forward includes providing a resume that clearly and concisely shows how you are a qualified candidate for the position. Here are some tips to help to achieve this:

  1. Ensure you have highlighted all relevant skills and experience to the position.

    The goal is to have the hiring manager easily identify what similar accountabilities and tasks you have performed in past and, based on these, determine that you are a qualified candidate for the opportunity.
  2. Be confident in your abilities and do not be afraid to brag about your past achievements.

    Highlight any accomplishments, awards, or accolades you have received, following your description of the role, volunteer position, or school project description. This is a simple way to demonstrate your abilities. Be sure to only list what can be substantiated if asked, such as a certificate of recognition, thank you card, or past performance assessment summary.
  3. List your experience in chronological order, starting with most recent.

    Ensure you provide relevant dates, including the month and year of when you started and ended in the role.
  4. Always check and re-check your resume for spelling and grammatical errors.

    Attention to detail is a competency that is required in all positions at ATB financial. After all, we are in the business of managing other people’s money, and we have to get it right.
  5. Ensure you provide your contact information, including email address and contact numbers.

    It is ideal to note the preferred method of contact during business hours as this is when we will likely try to contact applicants.
