Learning Points

  1. First things first, your resume should reflect your true personality. Always have a handy list of pointers in your achievements. National and International level participation will make a substantial impact. School or Micro-Level achievements will not give you an added edge.
  2. What follows next is the most crucial part, the presentation. The key here is ‘Categorization’, starting with Academics followed by Qualifications and Certifications and lastly Extra-Curriculars. There is no limit on the number of categories to be included unless, there is enough content for each of it to hold.
  3. How do you structure the content inside every category? Subsume comprehensively but also maintain brevity within every category. While doing this, the headline should always attract attention.
  4. The last leg of the exercise is ‘Work Experience’. For experienced professionals or for that matter any candidate who has had a brief industry interaction, it is imperative that the impact made during the work tenure is given maximum attention, rather than concentrating only on the responsibilities associated with the role.
