Thus your resume should be concise, structured and specific. Yes, that’s it and your resume will create instant attention, portray you as a worthy candidate and help you receive the call from the recruiter.

Given below are the simple Resume Rules that you should keep in mind:

  • Be 100% relevant
  • Highlight your accomplishments
  • Lead with action verbs
  • Avoid vague and general statements
  • Don’t focus on your wants and needs
  • Avoid common grammar mistakes
  • Proof read and proof read again
  • Use up-to-date resume formats
  • Don’t use templates found on word or online
  • Be consistent

Follow the above tips and make a good first impression, sell yourself, get an interview and hopefully finally a job offer.

All the best!
