Few Notes On Resume Writing
Posted by Admin on December, 01, 2016
Don’t start your job search without giving due thought to your resume. A strong resume does wonders for your chances of making it to the interview stage – and can work wonders for your job search. Here’s how to make it .
- Keep it brief - usually two pages maximum.
- Avoid unnecessary personal detail such as age, religion and sex.
- Don’t write in the first person – start sentences with verbs.
- List your career history in reverse chronological order. Don’t forget to include a short note to explain any gaps.
- Use bullet points for achievements and responsibilities – include more detail on recent roles and less on older ones, unless they are particularly relevant to the job you are applying for.
- List educational institutions and qualifications in reverse chronological order.
- Include computer skills, language skills and any relevant training.
- Keep your hobbies and interest section short.
- References can be provided on request – you don’t need to include their contact details on your resume.
- Check for typos. Even if you think your resume is error-free, it’s worth asking a friend to read it through.
