How To Make Your Resume
Important things to remember while making our Resume:
1. Employers will usually make a judgment about your resume in 5 seconds.Under this time frame the most important aspect will be The titles that you listed on the resume, so make sure they grab the attention.
2. The design of your resume must highlight the most important information about your work experience, skills and education. At first glance this information forms the image that employers have of your skills and abilities.
3. Before you write the first word of your resume, Determine the position and industry you want to target. Then make an outline of your presentation and fill in the details of your background. Make sure you keep the focus on your target.
4. The general Rule for page length is 1-page for typical entry level college students and 2 pages for everyone else. There can be exceptions to this but the longer the resume, the less likely it will be read. So make sure your document is concise.
5. Make sure to put Your name on the first line at the top of your resume in a large font with your contact information immediately below it.
6. Use a Font size between 10 and 12 for the body text of your resume. Make sure to choose a font that’s compatible with applicant tracking systems that many employers use.
7. If you have Negative information in your background, try to avoid including it on your resume if you can. If you can’t, then make sure you present it in a way that lessens the negative impact. For example, often older workers attempt to disguise their age by omitting their dates of employment and college graduation dates. This approach rarely fools anyone and can actually backfire by making the reader say to himself/herself: “If this candidate is worried about their age, maybe I should be worried about it, too”. I recommend turning negative issues such as age into positives.
8. No employer will have the time (or patience) to read long paragraphs of text. Make sure, therefore, to use Bullet points and short sentences to describe your experiences, educational background and professional objectives.
9. Put the most Important information First, Most of the times your previous work experience will be the most important part of the resume, so put it at the top. When describing your experiences or skills, list the most important ones first.
10. Merely stating that you can do something will not catch the attention of the employer. If you manage to explain how it will Benefit his company, and to connect it to tangible results, then you will greatly improve your chances.
