Introducing our ready-to-edit winning resume template for fresher applicants at the bottom of this article! All your headaches solved in one template.
Resumes are often taken for granted. While applicants are busy tinkering their SOPs to perfection, everyone thinks resume is a one night job. Well, may be not. After working with some students, I realized that what I thought was obvious about the resume was not so obvious to the students. And fair enough – since I myself had the benefits of years and diverse experiences before I learned the inside out of a resume writing process. So, I figured that it is time to dedicate a full post to resume building.
First, sit and reflect upon who your reader is and what your resume is trying to convey to her. As an applicant, you want your resume to be coherent with rest of your application. So, while your experiences, education and background are factual information, what to highlight is a matter of judgment. For e.g. if you are showing interest in research/applying for PhD etc, your highlight should be on your research projects and publications. Similarly, if you are applying for a MCS kind of program (geared towards landing corporate jobs upon graduation), your focus should be on professional skills, industry experience etc. So, before you begin, gather your thoughts and decide the areas/skills in your profile that your resume should be highlighting.
Lets look at the content now. Before we begin, lets get a basic thing straight – I cannot stress this enough, please DO NOT INCLUDE an objective section or a references. And, you should NOT mention your gender or marital status.
Next, lets make the language right. Use phrases instead of full sentences and write in first person. Never use passive voice. Resume is all about mentioning your accomplishments and what you are capable of. Keeping this in mind, every accomplishment (under projects, work experience, education or extra curriculars) should be listed as a bullet point. Each bullet point should be an action phrase and likely begin with a verb. It is important to quantify your achievements wherever possible.
Finally, lets look at the formatting. Our goal is to keep our resume readable without going too long.
If you are exceeding, you are writing too much and no, it doesn’t matter how much stuff you have done. Even the most experienced and accomplished people can fit their resume in one page, so you have no explanation to exceed beyond this.
