A resume is a complete information related to your education, job, skills and work experience in written form. It can be limited to one or two pages showing your professional capabilities as a whole. In getting a job in Pakistan, it’s imperative to create a strong resume to impress the reader. And this is where most of the job seekers lack.
Here are some techniques for an attractive resume, helping you to impress the employer:
Don’t Write them Too Long
A good resume is always in a very short language. You should cover all the sections including:
- Personal Information
- Work History
- Diplomas and Certifications
- Hobbies and Interests
A lengthy resume will always irritate your assessor.
Writing Work History
Your past work experience always attract the recruiter. You should write very strongly about your last job(s). Clearly mention all the information, including:
- Company name
- Time period
- Job Title
- Job Description
Clearly write your skills which you gained during your last job(s). You can make a list of your skills in another section.
One more thing to keep in mind is that you must start with the most recent experience first.
Just like the work history, it’s important to add your education history as well. Start with the most recent first. You don’t have to write from the very first beginning. For example, if you’re sending your applications against jobs in Pakistan and your most recent degree is an MBA, you should start with MBA first and end with Bachelor’s degree.
If you have professional certifications or diplomas, make another section and follow the same trend.
This section comes just underneath your personal information or otherwise is made prompted. When writing an objective, it’s imperative to keep it professional. No one want to hear about your personal goals and objectives.
Tell the reader how valuable you can be for the organization. How you can help the organization grow? What your strengths are?
Resumes are the first thing recruiters will see. Outlining the work and education history, you also need the resume to be error-free. Once you have done with the writing, review it yourself and then ask a friend to proofread it again to ensure that the resume is all out of errors and mistakes.
Resume writing is not as easy as it might seem, but if you could follow some tips from the experts it will become easier for you to create a mind blowing resume and get that long-awaited job in your location.
