A Resume is a self-advertisement that, when done properly, shows how your skills, experience, and achievements match the requirements of the job you want. Most of the Students try to copy paste content of the resume from others. Please do avoid that. Take your own effort to build a resume or refer some sample resume to know about resume.
How to Write a Resume:
- Your resume is about your future; not you’re past.
- It is not a confessional. In other words, you don't have to "tell all." Stick to what's relevant and marketable.
- Don't write a list of job descriptions. Write achievements!
- Promote only skills you enjoy using. Never write about things you don't want to repeat.
- Be honest. You can be creative, but don't lie.
Main Sections that should be included in Resume:
Your Resume Heading should consist of your Name and Contact Information.
You're making a major career change and without an objective statement the reader might assume you want to continue in your former line of work. Your resume objective statement should be as short and quick to read as possible.
Three things to note while writing objective:
- What position you are looking for.
- What level of responsibility you want.
- How to interpret all the information on the resume. The job objective tells the reader, "Everything that follows is relevant to this job." That's important because this is a marketing piece, not your life history!
The Summary of Qualifications section on your resume contains three to four brief
(no more than three lines each) statements that say why you're the best prospect for the job you want (your job objective).
Your work experience is one of the first things an employer looks for on your resume.
- List your work experience in reverse order and include Job Titles, Employer Names, Cities and States of your work history.
The Education Section on a Resume is a key for many jobs.
- List the State where each degree was received. And Write your area of study and the name of the college.
- List professional certifications, study abroad, titles of courses relevant to the job you are seeking, minor courses or concentrations academic honors you earned (these may be listed under separate section if they are many of them), special skills (i.e. computer skills which may also be listed in a separate section.
- Include Overall GPA in your major.
