简历技巧:about resume 标签:简历 求职应聘 简历技巧

    The Curriculum Vitae or Resume is a two-minute commercial about you.
    It will not get you a job … it may get you an interview
    WHAT IS A RESUME
    · A summary of your work related information
    WHAT IS A RESUME FOR
    The employer wants to receive a concise, honest & relevant summary of you. From reading the resume the employer wants to know:
    · What are the skills and personal qualities of this applicant
    · Can this applicant do the job
    · Will this applicant fit in
    You want to produce a document that makes you look as good as possible. At the end of reading the resume you want the employer to:
    · Give you an interview (and after that )
    · Give you a job
    STYLES OF RESUMES
    The Chronological Resume (see example):
    · Is the most common and conservative form of presentation
    · Is often preferred by small to medium sized organisations
    · Arranges your experience and education in reverse chronological order
    · Is good for demonstrating your growth and continuity in a single profession
    · Is most suited to people who have not had long periods of unemployment
    The Functional Resume (see example) :
    · Organises the job-related aspects of your background by the relevant functions you performed
    · Headings relate more to your skills and competencies than employers or job titles
    · Indicates that you are capable of making a significant change in your career
    · Is well suited to students who have gained valuable experience through a number of unrelated jobs and courses
    · Uses a common resume style, with which most employers are familiar and feel somewhat comfortable
    · Is often preferred by large organisations
    · Eliminates repetition of job duties
    · Camouflages undesirable characteristics such as; lack of career progress or continuity, job hopping, lengthy/frequent unemployment, lack of required experience/education, age
    The Academic Resume:
    · Emphasises academic qualifications, articles published, books written (if any), conference papers delivered, professional development
    · Suited to academic staff or post graduate students seeking an academic position
    The Imaginative Resume:
    This style is most effective for people who are seeking employment in a field, which demands creativity and individuality, such as graphic design, creative writing or marketing. Some employers however prefer a more conservative resume style. You should research your companies thoroughly to see if they are open to creative styles. This type of resume acts as a mini-portfolio and can be impressive if well-designed.
    The Combination Resume:
    As there is no absolute right or wrong in resume writing, you can combine the styles in any way which makes your particular background look the best
    SOME USEFUL TIPS FOR A GOOD RESUME
    · There is no one optimal style or format
    · Match the resume style to the company/position you want:
    Conservative company… conservative resume
    · Presentation and clarity are very important
    · Be concise
    · Include relevant and positive information only
    · Be honest, be able to explain/prove everything on your resume. Remember your resume is often used as the basis of questions in an interview
    · Layout should be consistent and reader friendly
    · Use clear type styles
    · Use a reasonable font size for the text (~ size 12)
    · Avoid "font mania" - the excessive use of different fonts, italics, bold, underlined, ETC!
    · Not cluttered – lots of white space
    · Use bullet points and relevant subheadings
    · Use short statements in point form rather than lengthy sentences or paragraphs
    · Only use abbreviations that are widely understood (Beware of technical jargon)
    · Eliminate excessive punctuation
    · Check for spelling and grammatical errors
    · Have all indents in alignment
    · Use a laser printer
    · Page br


eaks should not split lists, paragraphs, etc.

    · Binders and fancy covers are seldom worthwhile
