Your resume is your most important calling card in your job search. It should include the following information:
Contact Information - Include home and cell phone, mail and email contact information. In addition, make sure your voicemail message is professional. A message that is too casual can create a negative impression.
Career Objective - If your objective doesn't match the recruiter's needs, you may miss out on a golden opportunity. However, a clearly stated career objective can help your recruiter find your ideal career match.
Summary Statement - Your summary should be customised and contain bullet points highlighting your experience pertaining to the position applied for. Our recruiters will guide you in this process.
Professional Experience - List each position held in reverse chronological order, with latest one on the top. If you held multiple positions within the same company, list them all to show advancement and growth. The body of each position description should describe your responsibilities and accomplishments.
Other Components - Include education, professional training, affiliations/appointments, licenses, technical skills and languages.
Personal Information - Do not include personal information such as marital status, hobbies or any references.
