HOW DO I MAKE AN E-RESUME?
I have been applying to companies online without fully understanding the application procedure. What should my online resume look like? What ought to be the difference between traditional and new-age CVS?
Resumes fulfil the need to put together contact information, work history with responsibility and achievement, professional and educational qualifications, and an individual’s skillsets.
Many companies no longer restrict themselves to hiring only local applicants. Jobs, too, are now extended to whoever is interested in applying in a variety of fields like engineering, marketing, customer service, accounting, and even sales. People in different cities and even countries get an opportunity to fill these. Applicants have also transitioned from searching through newspapers for local jobs to registering online. Thus, the new-age resume is not about ‘who I am’, but ‘this is what I can do’. In some cases, resumes do not even have contact information and many share such details after the first stage.
The new resume can be divided into two categories: one that is sent in response to a particular job, and the other that is put up on the web. Here are some tips: A keyword listing at the top (tags) that an employer would search for when trying to fill a position. These should be your areas of expertise. You can have this section as a bullet and call it skills Add relevant links! Employers should be able to see samples of your work, perhaps a more detailed CV Avoid providing personal or contact information other than an email address to be used for jobs. Add links that can be clicked for detailed information. Think of your new resume as a web page, and develop it like one. Do not use slang or jargon. Use simple language and easy-to-understand words that you want the search engines to pick up Mention the languages you speak, read and write Global employers may not be interested in the names and locations of your previous employers. They will be keen to know what you did for them
