If you are not quite well aware of what a resume is, then we suggest defining this term: In other words, a resume is a document that you compiled that allows you to present your own ideas and skills, both professionally and personally. It is also an opportunity to talk about their achievements and uniqueness, which can be implemented and even become the basis for finding a job for the purpose of obtaining for them any moral or material remuneration. For the most part, the end result is an increase in the level of remuneration, the receipt of allowances, bonuses or other equivalent financial stability. In essence, a resume is a business card of an applicant. Studying in detail the issues of the correctness of self-drafting and writing this document, many professionals who work for a long time in personnel departments, employment agencies are advised to pay attention.

It is not worth very long and much to paint your own merits, delve into the history of the acquisition of skills, talk about the stages of their own formation. With its optimality, it is important to form information so that it can fit on an A4 sheet. Do not be afraid to go unnoticed. On the contrary, it is possible to “overload” a person with information. For example, among dozens of other submitted resumes, reading through them to the beginning to the end, the HR specialist will focus only on important information. And, if your document turns out to be 3-4 pages long, there is a real danger simply not to get to its end. And the summary will be set aside. When compiling it is important to accurately and correctly recall all the necessary dates or names of organizations that matter. If there is no opportunity to hope in this matter for memory, it is better to take information from the sources themselves. All information must be relevant.

You should not invent and invent new skills, ascribe to yourself any unfinished courses and talk about those achievements that did not exist in reality. It is necessary to be guided by one simple rule: “All secret things will come to light sooner or later.” Even if initially, you will be able to make a good impression during the initial selection, then at the interview itself, the result may be negative. And, if the resume was sent to the recruitment agency, which concludes contracts for the selection directly with employers, then its employee reserves the right to check any of the information you specified, and even make several confirming calls. Making up your resume, aimed at “conquest” of a particular position, it is not necessary to indicate all your parallel achievements. For example, if an economist’s vacancy is interesting, and in the past, by a lucky chance, we managed to finish cooking courses, or to master nail extension, then we should not focus on this. Even if you had to write scientific articles, jobs or works while studying at the institute or at the end of it, and the future job requires plumber skills, then the potential employer will simply not be interested in such information.
