As for me, all you need to have in there are your work experiences that are related to the job you are applying for, personal info like your birthday to let your employer know how old you are, contact info, and of course SKILLS. I guess that's all that is required.

This is a great tip! Keeping the resume short or at least to a one page length type of short. Just put in the important details. Employers don't have the time of day to read through a long resume. And yes the skills and the experience should be related to the job being applied for.

I think explaining better about our skills is something that is necessary. The third that it will help us to have a better relationship with them employer when we end up being given the work.

I agree. For sure employer will read your resume and know what are your capabilities and how are you as a person.

Not necessarily. For example, in there you say you know how to use Photoshop. The explaining part happens in the interview. Make it as short as you can but precise. A one-page resume would be ideal.

A good resume must contain the following things:

  1. Your name, and your website/LinkedIN profile link
  2. Your work experience
  3. Education details with GPA
  4. Projects that you undertook
  5. Technical skills in detail
  6. Any awards/appreciations/academic honors
  7. Professional Certifications, if any
These form the core contents of a sound resume. Keep it to max 2 pages long.

Yeah, I think that making it to be in just two pages is something that will help as well. This is because it will enable us understand what we are trying to achieve with that type of work as well. Having a nice resumes that give the basic information about us is quite important.

When making your resume, you should think that this will be your first impression to the employer and there's no turning back after you submit one. This my style on how I am making my resume.

You must choose the right font and sizer that is easy to read. Avoid cursive and too much decorations. Simplier the better.
Your Name should be bigger than the other followed by your contact number and email.
You should also attach your updated picture.
On the first page I usually put some of my special skills that you think it will be your advantage to the others. Followed by educational attainment that has complete details together with your achievements. After that I will list down my seminars attended in complete details. And the last part would be my personal information. I put it on the last part because a lot of employer doesn't focus on your personal infos unless height and weight is a requirement and then attach your signature at the bottom part.

This type of resume never fail me.

Some of us can run data analysis and regression analysis. Ensuring that we put those kind of skills at the top when we are writing the CVS is something that can be to our advantage at the end of the day.

I think a good resume includes working experience and skilled earned aside from the basic information. This will serve as preference to be ahead among the other applicants. But, it is always during the interview that sets the highest impression. This will test your ability to reason out and to convince your interviewer that you are the right person for the job.

Yeah, the interview process is one that is always crucial as well. It is like being on the hot seat and the way that we work things out will always be what will ensure that everything works fine for us at the end of the day.

Aside from your personal information, it is important to include those work experiences and trainings that you think will give you the edge to get that job. You don't have to put all the details in your resume. All you need to do is to know the qualifications and job descriptions of the position you are applying for. Then put everything you have that you think makes you hired. Keep it brief and concise.

I have worked in a human resources office before. I have worked in the hiring department. The main two things that we looked for is attitude and experience. In my opinion attitude was the most important because if the person had a good attitude they would be willing to learn anything. Sometimes people that were too experienced were not a good fit because they would not be willing to do things in a different way and this would interfere with the growth of the company.

I think that an ideal resume should not be very lengthy. A one or two page resume is enough to include all your details. The employer will only be interested to know your personal details, Educational Qualifications, your special skills, Your work history and work experience, etc. There is no need to write the detail about your hobbies, likes , dislikes, goals etc. in your resume as the people who are screening the canditates wont have the time to read such long descriptions about you.

Trying to put things like our hobbies may not come out good unless what we are writing is something that has to do with the employers and the work. Unless on that kind of occasions, there is no need to talk about our hobbies and dislikes.

The basic contents of a resume is primarily the work experience aside from the personal information. But over here the educational attainment is also important and some companies give preference to applicants with honors achieved in school. The rationale of the HR department is that a diligent student has a stronger tendency to be responsible at work and have dedication to the company.

what are the core contets of the sound resume: Your resume it self should give a brief descrition of you by just reading it. You need to put your personal information, Experiences, Whats your objective in applying on that certain compnay or position your experience should be a plus on it, your educational attainment and your references. Yoi can also add a seminars you've attended.

Employers are always more interested in the column that tells of your work experience. It is easier to higher someone you know has some hands on experience about what the job entails.

Sure where you went to school and the grades you got there is great, but grades reflect only the theory of things. Work experience reflects the practice.

Your resume must show:
(A) your educational background (a university degree, plus licenses or certificates); and
(B) your work experience.

The employer just wants to know:
(A) how intelligent you are (i.e. how much will they need to teach and train you because it cost money to train an employee); and
(B) do you actually work (because they don't want to hire a deadbeat!) Some people have knowledge and skills but they don't do JACK!! They're lazy!

If you received any impressive awards for doing your work, eh~ ... that's good too.

That's the "meat and potatoes" of your resume. Everything else is just "gravy". Don't supply references unless they ask for them.
