The first step of getting a job in any company is – Sending a Resume. You are not going to get a job only on the basis of sending resume, If will help you to getting in shortlisted candidates for the interview. Your resume means your personality, a resume is perfect if it is error/mistakes less. So here i am going to share some tips for creating a professional resume.
Your resume should be professional and polished, because if you don’t have a professional resume, your application materials probably won’t get a second glance from any HR.
Your resume needs to be easy to read – avoid tiny fonts, dense blocks of text, vague language, and inconsistent formatting.
#Does/Don’t while writing a resume :
- Many of my friends have resumes that are inconsistent – bullets in some places, dashes in other places, bold in some headings, plain text in other. A professional resume should not be on bright green neon paper. Your resume needs to be effective, to be consistent, concise, and clear and easy to read for HR.
- A professional resume needs to be free of any errors, including typing or grammatical mistakes. However you choose to format your resume, be consistent. For instance, if you use bullet points to describe your responsibilities and achievements at one position, be sure to use bullet points on all other positions as well. And, make certain that the bullet points are formatted the same way throughout.
- Legibility also can’t be ignored. You want your HR to be able to easily read and absorb your work history and achievements. Use legible (Readable) fonts and make sure that there is enough white space on the page.
- Always use white or cream-colored paper and never use bright green neon when you’re sending a paper resume.
- You should not to include extraneous information in your resume. Your resume should focus on the skills and attributes that qualify you for that job.
