There are several basic mistakes that even experienced writers make. And, this subsequently leads to failures.
How to avoid this, and achieve the perfect resume?
From the very beginning, as mentioned earlier, you need to eliminate mistakes, and then format the text itself. It is recommended that headings and subtitles be distinguished appropriately, to bring everything into one format. As you know, people who continuously work, with a considerable amount of information are able to read diagonally and selectively view what is needed. The unformatted text looks very implausible, in which the author claims that he has excellent computer skills.
Drawing up a sample resume. During the day, a massive amount of documents go through before specialists working with an open vacancy and almost any qualified worker can easily guess which copy was actually written and which one just downloaded from the Internet site. Often, regularly repeated clones of summaries cause an adverse reaction and even without interesting ones in reading. Therefore, they are sent immediately to the pile, where the candidates face failure.
Resume, compiled in PDF format. Such documents are almost never seriously considered. The thing is that not all programs support this format and are easy to read. Most likely, any expert will prefer the Word format, and it is familiar and easy to use.
It is essential both for the employee of the personnel department and for the senior-level specialist that the information given is correct. Moreover, large organizations have their own security services, which, as in the banking structure, have the ability to verify the information provided easily. And, if it concerns specifically your skills, which do not exist in reality, then at the first interview there will be a need to pass the test and everything will become apparent, only the situation will not be pleasant for everyone.
Placing inappropriate photos. There are companies in which the availability of a photo is a prerequisite for preparing and sending a resume. You need to understand that this is an official document, where the photo in a bathing suit or against the background of the home environment is simply not relevant. This is a severe mistake.
