Resumes should be 1) Easy to read: The professional selection has to deal with hundreds, some thousands, of resumes, so we should make it easier. The presentation is vital for this first contact a sheet full of blotches, spots, with different font types and bodies, complex and dry is very likely to end up in the recycle paper bin. In any case, the curriculum will take more than two A4 pages, three if we consider the letter. It is not necessary and attach any documentation that we have a first contact. 2) Single and orderly: We must remember that the curriculum is our first business card to the company, between the lines distill information about us.
It is important, therefore, show our best face forward: simplicity, order and harmony must be basic qualities of this first contact. We must avoid also complex expressions or gimmicky, contrived and pedantic terms, avoiding bombastic tone. 3) Credible: Inflate the curriculum of certain false or little does not work. After this first approach the hour of truth: the personal interview. In face to face with the interviewer, the candidate must ratify these data to a professional who has faced similar situations many times. It is important to sell, enhancing the qualities of each, especially those that bring something to the tender should respond, but not carry too much ink or it will seem contrived and false. 4) Stock yes or no?: Only our curriculum to accompany a photograph if they ask us in the job.
In this case, we will attach a recent picture, passport size and quality, never one of “” photo booth “.” It is important that the photograph shows us a relaxed and friendly gesture (not smiling too), avoiding the excess of makeup for women. As for the clothes in which we photograph must follow the same rules as the interview Focus: jacket and tie for them if the job required or casual wear in the case of creative jobs. 5) Fixed scrupulously: Few things can cause worse impression on this first approach to spelling, grammatical errors, amendments and deletions to the curriculum. Although the job you opt to not require communication skills, a resume full of typos hides behind a disorganized and careless. So we must never taught without trying to send a family member, friend or acquaintance who can correct us, improving or polishing if so wished. A tip: Do not forget to save a copy of the curriculum and the letter also provided. When you call for a job interview you will be good to have a look in case you need further information or to make a point.
