A resume is a marketing tool through which you should promote your skills with an expectation of getting an interview, not a job. Your resume should communicate to the employer that you have the necessary skills for the job and can effectively utilize these skills to achieve.There is no single 'good' or 'winning' format. It is always the content and clarity that are important. There should be no embellishments or ambiguities. The following is format that we like: Objective Summary of Skills Work Experience Achievements Education Training/Membership/Computer Skills etc. References In order for your resume to seem inviting and to grab attention: · Format of the resume should be simple and easy to read, without fancy bullets and text. · Resume should be well written, clear and concise as this will demonstrate your writing skills. · Use one type of font throughout the document. Standard size for text is 11 pt and 12 pt for section headings. General tips: · Proofread the resume and cover letter for grammatical and spelling errors. · Quantify your achievements and do not use self flattering terms and/or do not list soft skills such as Outstanding team player” · Use action verbs and avoid using “I” in your resume. · Use position titles that match the job or advertisement number as the e-mail’s subject. · Do not use general phrases to name your resume file.
