Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn

Resume literally means "life course". You can read an entire biography on many resumes. A pitfall is to include all your work experience and training, including your kindergarten and washing up job. Just scratch yourself: how relevant is this for your future employer?

RECRUITERS DON'T HAVE MUCH TIME

Recruiters receive many resumes for every application. So assume that the recruiter spends little time reading a resume . This already indicates that it's important to keep your resume attractive and to the point . Otherwise, there is a good chance that your resume will not be read at all. At that point your resume will of course completely miss its target.

PURPOSE OF YOUR RESUME

Your resume has only one purpose: to be invited for an interview. That is the reason that you make a resume at all. This means that you only need to include information in your resume that is relevant to the position and demonstrates what your unique and relevant talents are. Watch out for bullshit bingo ...

YOUR RESUME IS YOUR CALLING CARD

In short, consider your resume as your calling card. It is a marketing document of your personal brand . Make a resume in which you show your best side. So pay attention to the layout of the document. Avoid spelling and grammar errors, choose a readable font and colors that suit you.

Creating such an irresistible resume takes time and effort, but remember that the final result will more than reward it.
