Remember this is where you will be judged. You need to add an impressive resume objective statement. Take care to construct the lines. It should not be a paragraph. One or two lines are sufficient. Try not to sound too vague. It serves as a pointer to the position you want to see yourself in. Do not use generic soft skills like ‘hard worker’, ‘team player’, ‘dynamic’ etc. Surely the employers expect these of you but do not like to read them on the resume. In the personal section include names of your parents, your date of birth, passport details, languages known and their proficiency level possessed. Finally try to limit your resume to a maximum of 2-3 pages for fresh graduates. Remember, that there is no harm if your accomplishments are over by the end of the first page. It is wise not to ramble.
The core issue is that a resume must be a useful document to its readers. You must provide relevant, concise information. Always bear in mind that any prospective employer has their own specific criteria. You must address these criteria in full. If you dont, computer screening can discard your application. There is no such thing as an all-purpose resume. Obviously, your basic information will be similar, but you will need to modify your resume for different employers. Research the employer’s business! Use the employer contact person to get as much information as possible about the job. This can save you from some major blunders and provide very useful information. More is not necessarily better in terms of amount of text. Stick to solid facts, without adornment, unless additional information gives you a clear advantage.
Never use pictures in your resume. Exclude work experiences which are not supported by documents (eg: letters of appointment and release). Do not write your expected salary, wait for an interview call, salary negotiation can happen there. Do not put down references in your resume; they are important but furnish them on request only. There is no need to add your hobbies. Apart from the forementioned details, it is important to realise that it is good to make the look and feel of your resume attractive, it should not be overdone so as to defeat its purpose. The design should not appear unprofessional. It is okay to use colours but use them judiciously. They should not clash with the formality of the tone of your resume. Remember, prospective employers have specific criteria for selection of candidate.
