Writing a great resume does not necessarily mean you should follow the rules dictated by the business industry, times change and so do resumes. It does not have to be one page or follow a specific resume format. Every resume is a one-of-a-kind marketing communication. It should be appropriate to your situation and do exactly what you want it to do. Instead of a bunch of rules and tips, we are going to provide you with enough templates to make your life and job search easier.
Writing your first resume can be a daunting task, trust me I know! You might still be a student, and chances are you don't have too much professional experience under your belt just yet. But don’t worry—everyone else was in the same boat when they first started out. I constantly try to work on my cv, alter it, modernize it, add more relevant experience and still many times I don't get the call back. However what I noticed is that once Im perfectly happy with my cv/resume in sense of style and information provided the call comes more often than not.
Remember that the goal of a CV is to get you an interview, not the job straight away! Knowing that recruiters spend on average just 9 seconds on a CV before deciding whether you are worth being invited to an interview or not, makes the task even more challenging. First impressions do matter! Having a great strategy in place how to approach the task can save you considerable time in your job hunt. Make sure that your sc/resume is the one that stands out! Make it unique so that the HR keeps readying through it and he or she remembers it when the time comes to select the selected few for the interview.
Hopefully, the templates below can help you find and achieve your goals more easily and save you some time, as I know how important the time is once the search begins.
