The Resume

A Resume or Curriculum Vitae (CV) is an objective written sum­mary of your personal, educational, and experience qualifications. It packages your assets in the form of a convincing advertisement, which sells you for a specific job. A resume is a kind of written sales presen­tation. An effective resume creates a favourable impression of you while presenting your abilities and experience.

The basic requirements for a good resume are:

• brevity: one page is preferable, but not more than two pages;

• top quality paper;

• perfect spelling and grammar;

• no typographical errors;

• attractive layout.

Your personal data sheet contains most of the information you need to prepare a resume. Now you have to select and arrange that infor­mation in the way that best relates your background to the work you seek. Every resume is an individualized presentation of your qualifi­cations for a particular job. It means that you may prepare a few different resumes, depending on the types of jobs you are applying for. You can choose from among four types of resumes:

Chronological resumelists work experience or education in reverse chronological order. It describes responsibilities and accom­plishments associated with each job or educational experiences.

Functional resumelists functional skills and experience sepa­rately from employment history.

Combination (functional/chronological) resumedraws on the best features of the chronological and functional resumes. It high­ lights an applicant's capabilities and includes a complete job history.

Targeted resumeemphasizes capabilities and accomplishments relating to the specific job applied for. Work experience is briefly listed in a separate section.

Resumes provided for graduate school admission highlight your skills, professional experience, accomplishments, and academic his­tory in much the same way as “job” resumes. The difference is that an admissions resume will focus on what transitions well to the class­room, not to the workplace.

The most popular with the recruiters nowadays is the combina­tion resume, which includes:

1.Main heading Applicant's first name, last name JASON DANIELSON

Knowing what to excludefrom your resume is as important as knowing what to include. Here is a list of details to exclude from your resume:

• Height, weight, hair or eye colour;

• Comments about your family, spouse, or children;

• Your photograph (unless you are applying for modeling or acting job);

• Travel restrictions;

• Preferences for work schedule, days off, or overtime;

• Salary demands or expectations.

10. Make sure there are no errors in spelling; punctuation, or typing.

11. Don't sign or date the resume.
