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.
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.
Your resume must be easy to read. Always think of the reader needs. Use dedicated sections, not just headers, to split up your resume into simple segments. This is to help the reader focus on specific information, like qualifications, etc. Make sure that your resume has a credible, professional look and use color to break up your sections. Some resumes you’ll see online look like junk mail, and that’s not where you want to be. Look professional! Allow space for your information. Don’t try to cram things in to spaces which are too small. There is no set-in-stone format for fresher resumes apart from the obvious baseline information required. If you have high value information, like an internship or project relevant to the application, include it.
