What is a Resume?

Resume is a self-promotional document that presents you in the best possible light, for the purpose of getting invited to a job interview.

Why your resume is important?

It's the first meeting between you and a prospective employer. Your value and your importance can be easily decoded from your resume. Use your profile design that grabs attention.

What should the resume content be about?

Your resume should be focused on the company's needs. Your resume should convey that you are the perfect candidate for the job.
It's about YOU - how did you perform and what did you accomplish in the past jobs, especially those accomplishments that are most relevant to the work you want to do next. A good profile predicts how you will perform in that desired future job.

Resume Design

Follow a simple design, which gives maximum information in the minimum number of pages. Make the profile readable by using a minimum of a 10-point font for text and 11-point for headings. Use an easy to read and commonly used font like 'Times New Roman' or 'Verdana.' Do not underline heavily. The length of your resume must have at least 2 pages.

Word Usage
Simple language, lucid expression with good grammar is the thumb rule. Watch your tenses carefully. Use short and simple sentences. Never use long sentences, and never go with errors, unusual punctuation and incorrect capitalization's.
Make your resume concise. Never use \"I\" or other pronouns to identify yourself.

Highlight your strengths

Highlight your strengths and what is most relevant to the potential employer. Every resume is typically reviewed in 10-30 seconds, so put forth the effort and determine which points most strongly support your job search objective. Put the strongest and most relevant points first where they are more apt to be read.
You can have many more interviews by tweaking your resume and cover letter so that they address the specific skills that each employer needs.

Quantify your experience wherever possible. Only by analyzing your resume and your past contributions to the previous company, recruiters will offer you an employment in the company.
Always be honest and confident about describing your career profile. Many experienced and professional recruiters can easily understand whether you are describing the truth or not.

Use bullet statements when appropriate
Bulleted information is more readable and tends to stand out more than the same information contained within a paragraph. But bulleted information also takes up more room. It's better to combine the two.


Contact Information

Your name, address, phone/fax numbers, and email address.

Form a solid, clear objective that will help you carry a focused message throughout the resume. The objective summarizes your skills and emphasizes your strengths.

Most of the fresher resumes do not suffer from space constraint . However, it is a good idea to include only those educational and professional qualifications which are relevant. Put your qualifications in a reverse chronological order. i.e. the recent ones first followed by the earlier ones. Entry level resume should also mention the names of their school and college, years in which they passed their board examinations. However, include only the marks in which you have shown a good academic performance.

Work Experience
If you have any work experience, list it in the reverse chronological order. It must include the company name, location, time frame of work there, responsibilities and projects.

Publications, Patents, and Awards

List these or anything else that is relevant to your job function in this section. If you have many publications and patents, consider listing them on a separate page and attach it to your resume.

Computer Skills
This section can include hardware, software, programming language, and operating system experience.

Other Skills and Activities
This section can be used to show that you are a well-rounded individual. It can include membership in industry-related societies. It includes
  • Community Services, if any
  • Leadership Activities
  • Accomplishments
  • Affiliations
  • Publications or Presentations
  • Certification/Licensure
