Your Roadmap to Success: Writing a Great Resume
Although it will not be the sole reason why you might get that coveted job position, a resume is a written proof of your qualifications. It does perk up the interviewer’s interest if they get to read all the skills and knowledge you can offer the company if they choose to hire you. So it would be best to prepare a resume that will do justice to your abilities. Read on and find out just how…
1.    Don’t make the mistake of writing in the narrative form :

 It would look really lengthy and boring. I’m sure they don’t have all day. Also, try to avoid stating it in the third person or the first person. For example, “he is a fast-learner” or “I am hardworking”.
2.    Do away with fancy borders or pictures : 

  Resumes should look formal and professional. Unless you are applying for the art department, keep the “d├ęcor” to a minimum.

3.    Keep the facts straight :

You would not want to be caught writing something that’s not true. Remember, a few phone calls to check on the accuracy of your qualifications is all it takes to get your name off the list. Stick to reality. Your resume should not be fictional or fabricated.
4.    State achievements or experiences briefly : 

Don’t focus on too much detail. If the recruiter wants to know more, there’s the interview portion for that.
5.    Make sure you use the right sequence in stating your job experiences :

 That is, the most recent one should be on top, and not the other way around.

6.    Don’t jot down experiences or trainings that are not necessarily related to the job you are applying for :

This also works the same with hobbies or interests. If its not in line with the work description, by all means, skip it.
7.    Limit your resume to two pages or less : 

You will be taking up too much time if you pass three pages or more, and you’re not the only applicant for the job, ok? So stop the urge of writing an epic story of your conquests and achievements.
Remember these tips when you have the need to pass yet another resume. They are little details you might want to consider when you apply for that next big job. Keep your fingers crossed, best of luck!
