Changing the place of work, it is essential to know how to make a resume correctly, because everyone understands that for one vacant place, there are always many applicants with unique abilities and skills.

Brevity

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 vital 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.

Concreteness

When compiling, it is vital to accurately and correctly recall all the important 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.

Truthfulness

You should not 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 harmful.

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, 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, you managed to finish cooking courses or to master nail extensions, then there is no need to focus on this.
