Every candidate has a unique selling point. Something that sets him or her apart from others.
A graduate, of course has no experience, but can list class of degree, volunteer positions held, awards won, competitions attended and skills as selling points on a resume.
An entry level or experienced candidate can list job achievements, target met, teams led, higher degrees attained and advanced courses attended as selling points on the resume.
Remember, your resume is to show off your unique selling point to the Recruiter very fast, but in a short and story-like way.
I once reviewed the Resume of a fresh graduate. It was 4 pages? For what? Guess what? The candidate had a first class degree, but didn’t mention it till the 2nd page.
That’s a no!!! Not good at all. A first class degree is a job landing selling point any day. (At least, till 5 – 7 years after graduation). It should be mentioned on the 1st page.
So please edit your resume now to project your selling points.
Thanks for reading. Please share!!!
