Resume Preparation Tips

You get only 10 seconds to impress an interviewer through your resume. This is where your interview begins and believe me - interviewer may decide not to shortlist you before even meeting you.

Few wrong steps you are not supposed to follow during resume preparation are:
  • Including your Father's name in Personal Details.
  • Using different font styles.
  • Using decorations.
  • Adding bold fonts for the keywords.
  • Inserting heading as "Resume" instead of your name.
  • Missing objectives.
  • Mentioning salary in your resume.
  • Adding hobbies though you are experienced and so on..

The following should be included in your resume:
  • Always start with an objective or summary.
  • Specify the position you are looking for in the "Objective" and things that you promise to deliver as an employee to the company.
  • Then include your professional summary - for instance - Working as Software Testing Engineer in "XYZ" company, since "YEAR". Always start with your recent company and then mention your previous company.
  • You can also include stuff like :- 1) Looked after SQA and testing independently, 2) Followed industry standard practices etc,.
  • Following this always include your strengths like: 1) Played a major role in Testing and Test planning, 2) Well versed in understanding requirement specs and so on.
  • Once you are done with this, its time to specify what type of technology you have worked with.
  • Then include projects you have worked with. A brief description of that project, time span, team size and roles and responsibilities. Always start with recent projects in descending order. Add maximum 3 projects and rest you can explain verbally.
  • Finally include your personal details. If you have a passport then add passport number as well.
