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.
Pay attention to sentence constructions and grammar. Ensure that there is zero grammatical error in the document. Make an effort to find out the appropriate expressions and spellings. Here is where you make an impression. Be formal and polite in approach. Also be precise in your statements. Remember that your training and accomplishments must have credibility in form of a diploma or certificate. Your area of expertise should show through your resume. For instance, if you are a writer, your trade should reflect in your presentation without revealing that you are trying too hard. Similarly if you are an animation artist it should speak through your resume presentation without appearing gaudy. These are the minor intricacies which make your resume exceptional but if you are not sure of them you may eliminate them. They are not necessary. Your resume is adequate even without them.
