Perfecting your Resume

Anyone can learn how to format a successful resume. Important pointers for Resume Writing include -

Formatting and Presentation

The mediocre resume grabs the attention of the employer for a span of only a few seconds. It is immediately cast aside if it fails to leave a strong impact. Treat your resume with the same amount of care and consideration you will give an interview. Don't treat it with a casual approach.

Choose the right kind of format. If you have relevant experience, use a chronological format. This format begins with your current job and builds backwards. If you are new to the job market or reinventing your career by joining a new industry, use the functional/combinational form of resume. This means assembling your skills and attaching a short chronological work history in the end.

  • Remove Errors - use spell check and get your resume proofed by someone for sentence structure and any other errors.
  • Consistent Format - use of capitalization and punctuation should be maintained throughout.
  • Use of white space to highlight core parts of the resume.
  • Don't use more than 2 fonts.
  • Include of important contact details.
  • Print your resume clearly and use a nice paper.
