Writing a Resume

My last post dealt with Writing different kinds of Reports.

And what are we going to deal with today?

 We are going to learn about Writing a Resume.

What is a Resume?

A resume is a short statement of your work experience, education and qualifications. It is an application letter that enables the company to get a first impression and decide whether they are interested in interviewing you. Your resume (sometimes called your “CV”) is your most important tool when applying for a job. It doesn’t matter how qualified you are, or how much experience you have, if your resume is poorly presented or badly written, you are going to have trouble getting the job you want, or even an interview.

Knowing how to write a resume may prove extremely important  when you start looking seriously for employment.

Why do we need a Resume?

With a representative and professional resume, you will stand out among all other applicants. You are more likely to be invited to an interview.

There are different styles and formats. If you are looking for a summer job or any other temporary job, you may choose a less formal resume.

 

Let’s see how we can apply the information given in this post to write a Resume.

1. Write a resume to be presented to a potential employer (10-15 lines) – (Informal Style).
Introduce yourself. Explain your qualifications and past experience as well as your expectations.

The following guidelines may help you:

I was born in ………………………..

I am ……………………….. old, single / married ………………………..

I graduated from ……………………….. in ……………………….. in the field of ………………………..

My last employment ………………………..

P.S. – I am enclosing education certificates and letters of recommendation.

 

2. Write a formal resume  to be presented to a potential employer.
