Your resume is your cover letter. Before sending it to any company, read these tips so you can create yours in an attractive and impeccable way.
According to some sources consulted, recruiters usually only look at the resume for 10 seconds. Therefore, we recommend that you consider the following when creating your own.
Name, email, and contact phone numbers.
Do not include your full address, marital status, national identifiers, date of birth or age.
The resume should not have more than two pages. Focus on the most important events in the professional field and on your strengths.
You can include a first sentence explaining what you do best and how long you’ve been doing it.
Example: Executive manager with more than 15 years of experience in sales and business management. Enthusiastic about improving procedures, generating new revenue, and expanding the customer portfolio.
Use examples to demonstrate your remarkable strengths, achievements, and experiences.
Talk only about your last three jobs or the last 10 years of your working life.
Focus on talking about your last studies, certifications and courses that could be relevant to the position you are applying for.
Prepare your resume considering each open position you want to apply to.
Since it’s part of a first impression, avoid mistakes that could disqualify you.
Don’t exaggerate your achievements, avoid talking about basic computer skills, and don’t lie about your abilities or provide irrelevant information.
Before submitting your resume, double-check that all the information is correct. It is important that you are satisfied with the final result.
If you include a photo of yourself, it must be recent
