Resume WritingWritten by Steven G. Conklin
Resume writing is an art. You will have to master this art in order to land up with a plum job. Your resume must be your unique masterpiece. Resume writing has undergone lots of changes and has evolved over time. Resume writing is no longer about telling your degrees and qualifications, rather resume should speak about ‘real you’ on paper, in your absence.
While writing your resume do not follow tested routes. Try to incorporate something new. Your resume could be your ticket to your awaiting success and recognition. Your resume presents you to prospective hirer. So take note as to how you would like to present yourself to a prospective employer.
A job offer attracts hundreds of resumes. The prospective employer has a pile of resumes stacked up in front of him. No employer has time or patience to go through hundreds of resumes they receive daily. The prospective employer will just glance through all these resumes. If you have a well-written resume, it will instinctively attract employer’s attention. Yes! It is possible to get a special attention to your resume even among piling resumes. Remember, a well-written resume always attracts attention.
Your resume is not a historical account of your past. It should concentrate on your job history. Never write a resume reluctantly. You should not write it just for sake of securing a job. You should use a real enthusiasm while writing it. Your resume reveals your state of mind to employer.
