The Key To A Great Resume

Aug 17, 2007
Nowadays the way you look is very important. What is more important is the way others see you. When you are looking for a job and go to an interview, you take into account the way you look, if your suit and shoes are clean, if your hair looks good etc. However, have you taken care of your resume?

Your resume is the mirror of your experience. Without a "healthy" resume, you will not get the employer's attention. Your experience and past work means nothing if you don't have a well written resume to make it look good. From the way you organize your resume, the employer will know how much discipline you put in the things you do.

How to write a good resume - In the following lines, you will see exactly what you need to know about resume writing.

Start the writing with your name. Underneath the name, make the contact section. Include address (permanent, temporary), phone number, mobile, fax number, e-mail address and other means through which the employer can contact you. Continue with the objective you want to achieve by applying to that job.

Next, in a few lines let them know what studies and education you have. Continue the resume with your work experience. At this point, do not forget to point out the latest job you have/had. Continue the list descending in time; start with the most recent job finishing with your first job.

Do not forget to mention or comment any achievement you had during your past jobs. If you want to have a chance, do not forget to add to your resume the skills you posses and you consider that might be useful for this job. Finish the resume with adding additional knowledge you may have. Good luck with obtaining that job!

All the time you are writing this, keep one thing in mind: do not get to fancy things and do not start resuming your life and what you ate last night during the football game. Keep everything simple and make sure the important things are outlined well.

Always keep it on your professional experience and fill in the details you think will boost your rankings better. The employer does not care who you are and what hobbies you have. He needs people to work for him, not to listen to the stories they tell; until you get the job, you are just one of the no names from the pack.

Good luck with obtaining that job!
