Functional type is for those who do not have a great deal of matter or experience to support their resume with. The third type is the combinational type of resume which as the name suggests, borrows features from the other two kinds. Among these, the combinational kind is ideally suited for the fresh graduates. To follow this pattern of layout, you must put down details of your education, projects undertaken for your Graduation or post Graduation courses, awards and achievements in order. Headings or titles are always left aligned. Use a single space before the section content and double spacing before another heading.
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.
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.
