Curriculum Vitae - 4 Tips to Make Your Resume Successful!

Your resume is the extension of all your achievements. If your resume fails to portray all your achievements in the right way then it will fail to create the desired impact. Hence let me share with you 4 essential tips by which you can make your resume an instant success:
·         Get the basics right: honestly there is no set format when it comes to writing your resume. But there are certain things that you need to make sure are there on your resume. Your address and contact number tops the list. Your entire work history along with educational qualification should be mentioned. If you have any achievements in your professional or educational sphere then make sure that you cover them as well. Include the references and yes do mention your hobbies, what you like to do in your leisure time.

·         Presentation is key: how you formulate your CV matters a lot. You have to be very careful regarding your resume layout so that the recruiter will get all the required information at a glance. If he has to flip through pages to come across the different informations then it will create a very poor impression of you.

·         Stick to no more than two pages of A4: if you think that just because you have several pages to your resume, the recruiter will get impressed thinking that you have achieved a lot then you are mistaken. Short and crisp matters the most. Always stick to 2 A4 size page to fit in all your information. Any more than this and it means that you are bragging.

·         Understand the job description: this holds the key to your selection. Most of us have a single resume that we forward to all the openings and wait patiently for that interview call and more than often we are dejected. It is just but natural that you will not get a call simply because you are forwarding a general pattern resume. When the recruiter is browsing through your resume they are interested to see if you will fit the bill. And if you resume fails to convey this then your chance is lost. Hence you need to have a thorough understanding of the job for which you are applying. Make sure that you have designed your resume in such a way that it fits the requirement perfectly. Have several types of resumes and mail the one that meets the job description.
So you see, making a CV is not as easy as it sounds. It requires a lot of effort and attention to detail. However when you consider the above 4 vital tips it will be easier for you to get the desired resume. Just make sure that you follow the 4 tips and you will be all set. Go ahead, switch on your laptop, open MSWord and start designing your resume for the job in hand. Having the right resume means that half the battle is won.
