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 human resources recruiter very fast but in a short and story-like way.
As an HR recruiter, I once reviewed the resume of a fresh graduate. It was 4 pages? For what? Now, guess what? The candidate had a first-class degree but didn’t mention it till the 2nd page.
That’s a big 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.
