The resume is the first impression for the employer towards your candidature. Hence an impressive resume featuring appropriate resume format for the interview is of utmost importance. The resume should be kept simple, highlighting the accomplishments, experiences, skills and aptitudes of the candidate. Other qualities of a good resume are as follows:
- It should showcase the educational qualifications, degrees, diplomas and other certifications awarded to the applicant. The resume must also include the goals, aspirations and expectations of the job applicant.
- Work experience (if any) is the most important feature to be included in the CV and it should highlight the achievements of the employee in previous organizations. Also the resume must put some light on the candidate’s area of expertise and responsibilities in the previous organizations.
- A candidate should always refrain from adding unnecessary details about political views and miscellaneous preferences. Be careful so as not to criticize or make rude comments about the atrocities (if any) of the previous employers. As recruiters seldom entertain badmouthing other employers and as a result the candidate is at a risk to get disqualified.
- Personal information like interests and additional qualification such as computer courses, utility courses and foreign language certifications should also be included in the resume.
