How to make a resume?

Then we will see step by step how to make an attractive and strategic resume to submit applications for the job. During the process of sending, receiving and subsequent call for interview must have patience because it is normal that this last several months. Sending your personal data in a proper way is important for achieving good first impression that we seek in our future employers.

The first thing to do is gather all the information you’ll need; dates of entry and exit to educational institutions and courses that we find done, language skills (hopefully all backed by a course or official test), and extracurricular activities or hobbies (these activities say a lot about a person, their willingness to work in Team, achieving goals, etc …).

Some recommend that once you have all the above information, we devote ourselves on doing a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) that is normally applied to companies; the truth is that this personal analysis in practice it is more important to do for personal interviews, as it will prepare us to respond seamlessly to those “questions like” who are seeking our skills for the position basis. It is important once performed this exercise in introspection prepare for the highlight those qualities in us that would be helpful for the post in question (such as leadership, teamwork, excel, etc …). We can remember and record situations in which we find demonstrated these qualities (which may vary from office to office) to be able to respond with eloquence when the time comes. All this geared more to the interview, so we continue with ours.

The third step, once gathered information and made personal analysis is the elaboration of curriculum itself. White letter or A4 size paper is recommended; the important thing is to be consistent and flawless. With respect to photography, this usually goes to the right side up on the first page; if you have the possibility to “scan” our image and print on the sheet along with our curriculum this gives an extra touch of professionalism to our presentation, whenever high print quality. Now type format, in order to give an example because the requirements and information to be included may vary from job to job; the truth is that if we seek to answer how to make a resume because we have not had a need and it is our first time, this assistance comes as a glove. If you must add a special section just for example insert between the fourth and fifth sections.

Finally, we must decide on their final presentation. If you need to mail it, the most practical option is to fold it in such a way that conforms to a normal size envelope, usually in three folds; a larger envelope is not better, just the size we have at hand. Now if we are able to deliver hand to hand, suggested in a presentation in a clear and simple folder, not banded; this gives a neat and tidy appearance. By no means apply to stapled sheets.
