A CV, full of typographical errors and cluttered information, does not create a good impression. Job seekers should know that Resume is a mirror of what their career has been like and what they can offer in terms of professionalism to the prospective employers. Here are some golden rules to be followed while preparing a 'Resume':-
- Typos and spelling errors are not justifiable in a 'resume' as it gives a first-hand account of a job seeker's capabilities and experience. As such, job seekers should avoid typos.
- Most of the job seekers use confusing objectives and common phrases like "Seeking a challenging position, want to grow professionally, proven track record, excellent communication skills, can work under pressure & result-oriented" which should be avoided.
- To get the jobs, job seekers exaggerate or even lie about their past career. They should keep in mind that employers verify from social networks / references about the job seekers before employing anybody.
- Job seekers should limit their 'Resume' to a maximum of two pages as employers have no time to read more than 2 pages. in rare cases, the Resume can stretch to third page. At the same time, most important information should not be missed out.
- The format of the Resume should be readable and visually appealing. It is better not to give importance to fancy, colorful and multiple fonts an jarring text sizes, center alignments for texts, bold and italic texts.
- As 'Resume' of any job seeker is personal and about the achievements, it should totally be original and better not to copy somebody else resume format.
