The length of the document:
While recruiting, the employer gets dozens of Resumes. While looking through the documents, they must select a few candidates who are most suitable for the position specified. For one document, the recruiter takes only a few seconds.
A resume that is too long will not be read to the end, and at the same time, a lot of information in the Resume will make it completely illegible. That is why it is good to use the minimum content to provide maximum information.
Links to the portfolio links to the LinkedIn professional profile:
If you have a profile on LinkedIn, regularly updated, with a photo, add a link to your Resume.
If you are a graphic designer or a photographer and you have a portfolio on Behance, add a link to your Resume.
If you are a developer you have an account on Github, add a web address to your Resume.
The job summary should be at the top of your Resume. The length of the summary should be between 3 and 5 sentences. The main purpose of the professional summary is to make the candidate’s strengths, key skills, and experience immediately visible. And to make the introduction interesting enough for the recruiter to read the other sections of the Resume. The form plays an important role. A professional summary should be like a short advertising spot, it should contain what is most important, there must be keywords. After reading a few sentences of the summary, the employer will know what a certain person can bring to their company.
Soft and hard skills:
Presenting the right combination of hard and soft skills in your resume is essential for your Resume to receive a strong assessment in the eyes of your employer. A good combination of skills will show the employer that you are not only well prepared for a particular job but that you will also be able to work well in a team and perform other important tasks related to your profession.
Hard skills – refer to the candidate’s technical knowledge gained through teaching, training, or experience. Technical skills are necessary to perform specific tasks.
Soft skills – these are personality features and habits that, among other things, describe how you work individually or with other people. Soft skills indirectly help to adapt to the work environment and company culture.
Write the company name and position in bold. Enter the time frame (for example 01/2019 – 05/2020). At the top of the list, write the most important duties performed. Avoid large unreadable blocks. For clarity, always use bullet points. There is no need to include your entire career in your Resume. If there were many employers in your career path, it is worth focusing only on the last or most suitable position for which you are applying. The same applies to skills. Over time, there are more and more skills, but it is not always necessary to list them all. We should focus only on those skills that are relevant to the job profile.
List the schools you have completed by posting the most recent information also at the top of the section. It is worth mentioning completed courses, specializations. Mark the whole section with start and end dates as well.
This section will be particularly useful for people who do not yet have much professional experience. Information about the candidate’s hobbies can partly fill the competence gap. Information about hobbies will also prove useful for candidates whose interests are the driving force at work, thanks to their hobbies they are even better employees. For example, a person who is involved in winter sports, because of their hobby, knows the equipment they use very well and will be the best advisor and salesman, answering all the questions of the sports shop customers.
