Build A Resume
The key to being able to build a resume is to include concise, pertinent and condensed information. Too much information and you come off as snobby, too little information and you come off as inexperienced. Simple enough, right?
Then, taking that into account, we’re here to show you how to build a resume in the most ideal way.
We’ll make sure you build a resume with such quality that you’ll land the interviews you want. Let’s begin!
Build A Resume
Now, of course resumes should always be presentable and have your own personal touch or they’ll just end up as another piece of paper or e-mail lost in the fray and you definitely don’t want that if you’re looking to find a good job in a respectable company or wherever else you choose to work.
To do this, you insert all of your essentials:
- Your full name
- Home address
- House number
- Cellphone number
- Email address
This information is to make sure you get a quick and easy response from your employer.
Either way, it’s best to keep your options open when waiting for them to contact you.
Always make it easy and always be available or you’ll miss out.
Alright, so we got our essentials out of the way and now it’s time to get to the meat of the résumé and this is split between three main categories:
- Work History
Skills are your own tools that you will add when trying to build a resume that you find are most pertinent to the job at hand and, trust us when we tell you this, they’re definitely relevant. Probably the most relevant part of your resume because if you’re versatile at what you do, then it’s more likely you’ll be chosen simply because you can do so much.
Work History; here you’ll include every little bit of information regarding past jobs you think might be related to the job you’re seeking (although it’s not mandatory that it be related to the job when attempting to build a resume). It’s no secret in today’s world that the more experience you have, the easier it’ll be for you to be picked. This stands as the second most important part of your resume.
Last, but not least:
Education. Pretty straightforward: if you have a bachelor’s or a master’s degree, it’s definitely a plus if you’re seeking a corporate job because you know as well as us that not anybody off the street is chosen for these types of places. Although this is definitely relevant, it’s not work experience and it’s not relevant to the job. Think of it more as a formality.
With that, your resume structure is complete! Remember to add any accolades you think might be of importance but remember what we said at the start: keep it straight-forward and you’ll have no problems.
Now we’ll show you a template guide of what your resume should look like, let’s move on to the next step!
