How to create a good first impression with Recruiters?

For any job posts, these days Recruiters are loaded with CVs. Be sure and give the right and brief information about you on your resume. The below mentioned few tips can help you get your dream job.


Basic Resume Writing Tips:

  1. Resume shouldn’t be more than two pages.
  2. Provide your complete name, contact number, email id and residing address. This will enable the recruiters to know your commuting distance to work location.
  3. Educational qualifications along with the year of passing.
  4. A CV photograph with a perfect headshot – no distracting background, professional attire is a must and Say cheese
  5. Please mention the Birth Year, Gender, and Marital Status on the last page of your CV under Personal Details Headlines.
  6. A well-written Cover letter
  7. Save the CV file as given here: “YourFirstName_Designation” E.g.: Kevin_BusinessAnalyst; Maya_MathsTeacher
  8. While sharing the CV please ensure to write a correct Subject Line “YourName_Job Applying For” Ex: “Sam_Chemistry Teacher_HighSchool”. So, it gets easier for the recruiters to move to the right folder and don’t have to save it again.
