Writing a resume

Writing a resume is easier said than done. There are many things you need to keep in mind while writing resume like what format should you use, how to frame the right object to suite new job's description as example. You need to create a resume that actually generates results.

What is a resume?
Resume is a self-promotional document that presents you in the best possible light, for the purpose of getting invited to a job interview. It's not an official personnel document. It's not a job application. It's not a career obituary and it's not a confessional.

Main purpose of resume writing
Your resume is a tool with one specific purpose, to win an interview. A resume is an advertisement, nothing more, nothing less. A great resume doesn't just tell them what you have done but makes the same assertion that all good ads do.

Objective of Resume Writing
Your resume should be pointed toward conveying why you are the perfect candidate for one specific objective or job title. Good advertising is directed toward a very specific objective.

What should the resume content be about?
It's not just about past jobs! It's about YOU, and how you performed and what you accomplished in those past jobs--especially those accomplishments that are most relevant to the work you want to do next. A good resume predicts how you might perform in that desired future job.

Why your resume is important?
It's the first meeting between you and a prospective employer. First impressions are lasting ones. Well, your resume is the first meeting between you and a prospective employer more often now than ever.
