Analyze Yourself

Ask yourself -- What actually matters to me? What are my likes and dislikes? What problems I am having and how can I fix it? What is my passion? What is my secret desire? What do I want to achieve in my life?

By reviewing these questions, you can get an insight as where do you want to go in your life.

You can have a natural flair or talent for various activities, such as - management, creating, writing, research, training others, drawing etc. & you can do these activities very easily and with interest.

A large number of people go to work each day to a job they don't like to work for. The harmful feelings pervade through their entire life, putting a negative cloud over the family, friends and many of their other activities. They may lack the ability to change, and may be afraid of leaving the surety of a paycheck, or have hundred justifications for them to be so dissatisfied and stay at their job. There is a better way to live your life and have a purposeful career. Having a meaning for your life is a driving force, which adds exuberance to your days. Having a passion and making it your career -- living a dream -- can not just be a wish, but a true and sure reality.

How to make a Resume

Writing an effective and creative resume that gets results can be a daunting task. But if a few of the simple things are taken care of, your chances of being shortlisted for the interview enhance significantly.

Here are a few of the tips that will be immensely beneficial for any candidate, irrespective of the industry or organization to are applying to. These are some basic things that make a lasting impression:

  • Determine your job search objective prior to writing the resume and structure the content of your resume around that objective only. If you write your resume without having a clear objective in mind, it will come across as unfocussed to those who read it.
  • You don't need to go into detail about every accomplishment. Strive to be clear and concise. The purpose of your resume is to generate enough interest in you, to have an employer contact you for an interview.
  • The language should be simple, the flow of language lucid and grammar absolutely correct. The format must be chosen carefully and consistency should be maintained through out. Use a font size no smaller than 10 point.
  • To improve the presentation and comprehension, use bulleted sentences. Resumes are read quickly (a resume gets an attention of 30 sec on an average) This bulleted sentence format makes it easier for someone to quickly scan your resume and still absorb it.
  • To add life to your resume, use begin with action words like prepared, developed, monitored, and presented.
  • Take the time to determine which bullets most strongly support your job search objective. Put those strong points first where they are more apt to be read.
  • Use the key words listed in the ad (where the vacancy is advertised) and match them with the contents in your resume, highlight your suitability for the job profile.
  • Use some technical jargon, specific to your industry. If there are terms that show your competence in a particular field, use them in your resume.
  • Accent the positive and leave off negatives and irrelevant points. Lead with your strengths. Focus on the duties that support your objective.
  • Rather than going into depth in one area, use your resume to highlight your breadth of knowledge.
  • If you have reported to someone important such as a vice president or department manager, say so in your resume. Having reported to someone important causes the reader to infer that you are important.
  • Limit the length of your resume to 1-2 pages. Help the reader to scan your resume efficiently and effectively.
  • Since you are so close to your situation, it can be difficult for you to hit all your high points and clearly convey all your accomplishments. Have someone review your job search objective, your resume, and listings of positions that interest you.
  • Use your resume to obtain an interview, not a job. Most prospective employers decide whether or not they want to interview you after reading the first few lines.
