Here, I am a trainer and visited an MCA college. Where, I am asked to give a speech on -
How to write a resume? - an overview
Friends, imagine a scenario. The person is sitting in a chair, looking like at some higher position in company. He is an HR Manager in a prestigious company. He had a stack of resumes on his table. He take one resume, look at it for 10 to 15 minutes, throws away...Again take other resume, look at it for few seconds, throws away...Look friends, he is repeatedly doing the same & same & same process...Hey, wait. What happens? Why he is not throwing this resume away? Oh, he is looking at this resume from last 30 seconds...40....45...Oh, did you see friends, he didn't throw this resume, he keeps it on table, it seems that he is quite impressed with this resume.
Do you want this resume to be yours? Do you not aware of how to write such resume? Don't worry friends, I am here to give some overview on 'How to write a resume?'
Good morning friends, My self XYZ, the HR Manager of XYZ company and a trainer.
Friends, resume is a very important thing for the job seekers as it gives your first impression to the interviewer. If your resume is not properly organized, not properly written then it will directly move to scrap papers. So, let's see in which order you can write your resume?
The only objective of resume is to be selected for an interview. It's an advertisement of yours. It should be like the interviewer is tempted to call you for interview.
First and for most thing, which is quite often mistake of job seekers. Never ever write a title 'Resume' on the top of your resume. Did you have ever seen the board on house is 'House'? You will see the name plate of the person who owns the house. So, you can write your name, education, contact information or write nothing which is a last option.
Second comes career objective. Don't write an essay on 'Career Objective'. Just write 1 to 2 lines. Try to highlight your good skills related to that job. Don't use so much hi-fi words in that. OK, tell me one thing, you have applied for programmer and you are given a job of a peon? Will you do it? No. So, never write in general like 'To be an employee who is hardworking and faithful at the work given to me.' Be so much specific that shows you are interested in programming. Try to write the things what the interviewer wants to be in the selected employee.
Now, as I said earlier, it is your advertisement. Don't write things in too details. Once, the interviewer will see the match of qualification required for that job, what will he wants more is the only thing you should write in your resume. Don't write long lines, make use of proper size bullets. They will look at your resume only for few seconds. So, highlight the words you want them to read. Don't write a single word in resume which is not known to you. They may ask any question from your resume.
So friends, this was a brief knowledge on how to write a resume. I will try to have a 3 hours session with you on 'Resume writing'. I am sure this will help you to grab best job for you.
