How to write a good resume?

A resume meaning ‘summary’ in French, simply refers to the synopsis of an individual required for employment. Job opportunities may arise unexpectedly. To get that first interview call, you need to see your resume as your marketing tool. A fully-equipped modern resume is vital to a successful job search. Here are some points to be considered while writing a good resume in order to stand out your resume in this hefty competition.

  • The first and the foremost consideration in driving to a good resume is the Right Resume Format.
  • Your resume should clearly, concisely, and strategically identify your qualifications to find a potential employer interested in meeting you. To skim your resume, an employer takes an average of just 30 seconds.
  • It should convey your skills, work experience, and assets. The resume is used to describe what you can accomplish professionally in a way that reflects and what you can do for the employer.
  • List your educational qualifications in reverse-chronological order. Highlight tech skills and include soft skills.
  • Tailor your resume to every description of the work you are responding to - and that means spraying the document with some of the keywords and phrases each posting uses.
  • Use a basic, clean font like Arial or Times New Roman. Keep your font size between 10 and 12 points. Choosing a clear, readable font will help make your resume look more informative.
  • Your resume should be written using working language with the exception of inactive words. This means using strong words such as “achieved,” “achieved,” “completed” or “accomplished”.
  • Before submitting your resume, you should check several documents to make sure there are no spelling or grammar errors.
