Resume Writing

Recommended Posts

I'll Share some helpful Tips for Writing Effective Resume. Hope you will find it helpful.


Do not mention personal information such as:

• Age, weight, height, marital status, gender, dependants, race, religious or political beliefs.

• Do not date or sign your resume.

• Avoid the overuse of the word “I†and words such as, enjoy doing, or responsible for. Instead, begin sentences with strong action words that are more explicit such as: operated, organized, coordinated, handled, performed, provided, administered, prepared, or maintained.


• A Career Objective tells the recruiter specifically what type of position you are seeking. It must be used when sending a mass mailing and when no job is advertised. You must also elaborate on your skills and abilities and sell what you have to offer in your cover letter. Your letter addresses what position you are interested in and this usually emphasizes your career path, goal, and your ultimate objective.


• Another suggestion is to use a Personal Profile in your resume to introduce yourself and tell the recruiter who you are. It is a short overview of your achievements and highlights your best skills and abilities and how you directly relate them to the position being offered.

If you have anything to share regarding CV/Resume then post it here.
