Attractive Resume - Tips from the Horses Mouth.

Someone just sent me this tips that were sent to him by some recruitment consultant. These tips on resumes building come direct from horses mouth. They do it for a living, and it pays to keep them in mind next time you are mending your resume.

Any resume needs to be written in such a way that it can attract your potential employer. So, if you are in search of a job of your dream, you need to be very careful while forming an appropriate and attractive resume that can catch the attention of your potential employer in not more that 60 seconds. Take a look at the following ‘keywords’:

a) Use the word “Successfully”:
Every potential employer likes to hear or see the word “Success” in a resume or during the job interview. So, while highlighting your skills, it is better to use the word “I successfully…” in describing your achievements and responsibilities.
b) Use the word “I applied”:
Using the word “applied” in your resume can describe your working nature and skills. But the point to be noted here is, using the word “applied” shouldn’t mean, why you have applied for that post. Instead the word “Applied” should be used to describe your skills.
c) Use the word “Team Player”:
In a resume you need to use the word ‘team player’, while describing yourself as a person who is very communicative and enjoy working in a team. If you use this word in an appropriate way in your resume, your recruiters will get the feeling that you are a good team player, who doesn’t have any problem working in a team. This particular word will also describe that you are very good in interacting with others.
d) About your past “Achievements”
As every employer likes to analyze your past performances, you can highlight your past achievements in point wise. It doesn’t have to be your past performance only in your professional life, as you can also list out something if you would have achieved something really worthy in your academic life or your personal life which can be shared in your list of achievements till date.
