Get your Resume Noticed


Hi everybody,

¿Did you ever think that the way you present your CV it´s important? I assure that is very important, so i will show you which are the 7 best way to get your resume notices.

1. Avoid Cliche Words

After reading one resume after another, the HR personnel would probably get sick of a couple of reused words common among resumes. Words and phrases to describe your past work experiences such as ‘responsible for’, ‘successfully’, ‘developed’, etc, lost their meanings in the pile of seemingly similar resumes.

2. Have An ‘Adaptable’ Resume

As much as possible, don’t send the same resume to every organization which you are applying for. It’s better to modify your resumes in accordance to the job requirements stated for the particular post. In other words, you should have a resume which ‘adapts’ to the situations.

 

3. Be Concise And Neat

When writing a resume, you can imagine that the person reading it has a really short attention span. If he or she reads for 20 seconds and don’t see any point reading further, your resume will be placed on the ‘rejected’ pile. This is understandable because they need to go through hundreds and hundreds of resumes like yours. This is why you will need to get to the point and captivate the recruiter enough to examine your piece.

 

4. Write A Career Summary/Objective

It will be time consuming for any recruiters to read every single resume in its entirety, so most of them would only browse through and pick out the main draw of your resume. Why not help them do that by having a career summary or objective at the beginning? That way, you can score point for consolidating your facts into a neat paragraph for clarity, and you can orientate the recruiter to areas which you wish to highlight.

 

5. Quantify Achievements Wherever Possible

If you are out there trying to catch the eye of the recruiter through your resume, you’ve got to include in details which would separate yourself from the rest of the crowd. You may be in charge of a team for a specific project in your previous company, but you need the numbers to back you up and strengthen your claims.

 

6. Explain Gaps

One of the things you can be sure that the recruiter would ask you in your interview are those gaps in your resume. If you make it to the interview, that is. To be safe, fill in the gaps for them even in your resume. Briefly explain why you were unemployed for a year or two, and what you did during those times.

 

7. Integrate Keywords Of Job Post

According to CNN, 51% of all resumes are processed via a tracking system that works by detecting keywords. These keywords are chosen based on what the recruiters are looking for in candidates, and are usually found in the job advertisement itself. With the increasing number of online submissions of resumes, turning to such system is an obvious solution for the recruiter to effectively screen out candidates.

 

Of course you can always use this incredible website  www.linkedin.com a page where all the professional are writing comments, or apply to jobs.

 

Good luck in your work search.
