How to write a resume that no employer can resist
It happens to many job seekers: it seems there is the experience and education is suitable, and the resume is sent every day to several places, but invitations for an interview still no.
What is the problem? Before you send your resume to a specific job, reread it. Are your strengths as a professional and as a person visible enough?
What experience to describe
Read the job ad carefully and try to understand which of the listed requirements you meet one hundred percent. These will be your strengths. In your basketball coach resume you should demonstrate them as clearly as possible, without getting bogged down in minutiae.
For example, a sales manager candidate is required to have successful sales experience. In the relevant section of the resume describe your skills in as much detail as possible: what exactly you sold, what results you achieved, what means you used to reach your goal.
How to describe the knowledge advantageously
If the employer requires the applicant's fluency in English and you meet this requirement, do not limit your CV to the phrase: "English proficiency - above average".
Under Education, write where you learned your skills, and under Work Experience, how you used your language skills in your previous job. In the """"Extra Information"""" section, mention that you keep yourself in shape by, for example, reading Harry Potter in the original. All of this will highlight your strengths - your knowledge of a foreign language at a high level.
How to describe personal qualities attractively
"Responsibility, communication skills, punctuality"" is in many resumes. The """"Additional information"""" section is certainly useful to the recruiter, but before you fill it out, think about which of your personal qualities might interest the employer and which are irrelevant.
Facts about your results-orientation will tell you a lot about your accomplishments in previous jobs. In the enthusiasm and energy let the employer see at the interview. And on your resume, show in one phrase that you have a life outside of work, and it has a positive impact on your career:
- active team player - I have been involved in amateur soccer for 4 years;
- volunteer project;
- every six months I attend courses, trainings or webinars in my specialty;
- I am fond of business literature;
- I am diligent, I am interested in chess/I like puzzles/I embroider crosses;
- charismatic, played in KVN until the age of 23.
