What are 5 Things Your Resume Must Have

  1. Career Objective / Profile Summary:
    The freshers need to mention career objectives and experience candidates need to use a profile summary in their resume.
    A career objective is a statement that describes your goal for joining the job.
    Eg: Secure a career in a reputable organization that provides me with numerous opportunities to excel in my profession and contribute effectively to the growth of the organization.
    Profile summary is a short statement that specifies your experience, and skills in your current and previous jobs.
    Eg: A result-oriented software engineer with 3 years of experience in analysis, programming, testing and debugging applications, documentation, and installation and maintenance procedures.
  2. Education: The qualification of the employee is a must needed on every resume. Every job requires a specific qualification. You need to list your qualification in descending order i.e from tighter qualification to lower qualification.
  3. Work Experience: If you have any previous work experience, you must include it in your resume. You need to mention the company name, period of work, and major job responsibilities. For experienced candidates, it is better to put experience details before educational details on the resume.
  4. Skills: This is the most important section in your resume. Your skills are the keywords that employers look for. Generally, recruiters don’t read the entire resume, they will search whether the candidate’s skills are matching with the job requirements or not. So every time you apply for a new job, make sure the skills mentioned on your resume are matching with the job requirements.
  5. Personal Information: Finally your personal information such as your mobile number, email id, and other information such as an address, date of birth, and gender should be included in your resume. Among all these, your mobile number and email id are extremely important for communication.

Which Resume Format is Best in 2022

There are mainly 3 types of resume formats, which are 1. Reverse chronological 2. Functional and 3. Combinational.

If you are an experienced candidate, you better use a reverse chronological type of resume, where you highlight your work history before your skills and education.

If you are a fresher, you can use a functional resume, which highlights your skills and education.

You can also use a combinational type of resume if you want to highlight both experience and skills. But the most widely used resume format is the reverse chronological resume type.

Can a Resume Be 2 Pages or 1 Page

In most cases, a single-page resume is enough. In case your experience is above 10 years in that case you can add an additional page.

Does the Resume Need Signature

If you are submitting a resume in physical format (printout), in that case, a signature is required.

If you are sending a soft copy of the resume such as a PDF or Word document then the signature is not required. In the signature field, you can type your name or leave that space blank.
