Resume Tips

Keep it simple and clear

The first screening of resumes is often done pretty fast, make sure to keep information concise. Keywords, visuals, highlights are all key to providing a clear and pleasing design.

Write a draft

Take the time to write your resume methodically and objectively. A good resume shows that you have the ability to submit a summary of your career, and knowing how to highlight your career objectives in relation to the job you are applying for.
Make an assessment of your career by answering these three questions:

  • What have I done?
  • How I did it?
  • What was the result?

Do not forget elements of your personal life by showing how you manage to balance your personal life with your professional life

Update your Resume on a regular basis

You might be tempted to update your resume by adding information without ever removing anything. Bad idea! Focus on your last work experience by reducing the importance of others, even if it sometimes means deleting them.

Limit the number of pages

Be careful, a Resume should not contain 10 pages!
Recruiters have a pile of resumes to go through on a daily basis. Make sure to keep your resume – 1 to 2 pages maximum

Value the essential elements of your CV

Make good use of word processing tools without abusing the features it offers (bold, underline, italic).

Structure your CV consistently

A structured and coherent resume should make it easier to read by a recruiter. The lack of structure and consistency can make a recruiter doubt your professionalism.

To remember

  • Get to the point
  • Take your time to write.
  • No unnecessary frills.
  • Maximum 2 pages.
