Nowadays, some companies ask to send resume through email or by attachment. So, you have to firstly check resume in email format also. If it looks messy then make it again in email version by removing all the formatting so that it looks like a simple document. You have to mention and focus on your skills and experience in the first half only and do not add irrelevant information which is not true.
Mistakes Not To Do
The days are gone when recruiters wanted to know about our personal life and hobbies etc. So, you don’t need to write marital status, hobbies, religion, age and other human characteristics. You should not write any negative thought about the past employer, so if you are asked any question about this,you have to give a diplomatic answer. You only have to write the true things instead of lies as your employers will judge and assess you on that basis.
You have to take care about the English spellings, grammar and not to use slangs. The employer may not be of your background and therefore may not understand your point of saying. You have to use the appropriate language that is understood by everyone. So, show your creativity in your own resume to make your job hunt easy.
