How to Create a Resume?

Well, I am back as promised.
So, today let’s start with the basic concept on which this blog, Resume Websites, is based.

How to create a resume? or in simple words imaging your best professionalism on paper.

The core purpose of any resume is to promote your candidature in the best possible ways, so that it can convince the employers about your optimality for the job. If the employer is convinced that your skill-sets are best suited to satisfactorily deliver the job responsibilities, you can be sure that he/ she would be incited to meet you in person and discuss the job possibilities.

This would require, understanding of desired job profile by the employers. To make the best estimate, a review of the job description given by employers is the ideal way. In case the job description is not provided, you can always refer to different resume websites for generic understanding of the job. Alternatively, a search for sample job descriptions for the given job posting would provide you the relevant information. In worst case scenario, you may directly refer to sample resumes and other resume examples, and include the information in your resume. The customization of these details would be discussed in subsequent postings.

Some basic requirements for imaging your best professionalism on the resume, so as to create a resume which can win you the desired interview call are as follows:

A. Introspection: Identifying the skills
Identify your key skills which are supportive to your candidature, and are at par with the desired job profile. Once you have listed them down, prioritize them based on relevancy, importance and your expertise.

B. Format selection/ Resume design:
Select the best resume format through which you can present your candidature effectively. It need not be intricate, but simple and attractive. While selecting the format, it is always recommended to do a bit of research on different possible layouts. The finalized layout should be as per the prevailing industrial trends and at par with professional standards. You can search the web for best sample resume formats to get the relevant information.

C. Content:
Include all the relevant and supportive information as explained above. Ensure that all credentials shared are supportive to the candidature, and can be supported with appropriate documentary proofs, if asked. Other things which need to be taken care of are: sequence and flow of information, so that it can retain the employer’s attention and create a strong impression. Your resume objective should be given due care to ensure that the first impact on the employer is appealing and supportive to your profile.

D. Other details:
Once you have included all the key information, then you can share other details to gain advantage over other candidates. These can be included under suitable sub-titles such as professional memberships, interest and hobbies, etc.

E. Now that your resume would be ready, it’s always better to revise for any errors. Take a final look of actual on-paper view by taking a printout. If you feel the need, make necessary changes in the design and format to add a visual appeal to your resume.
A professional resume designed with incorporation of these guidelines, can help you cast influential first impression on the employers and win you the job.
