Things to Remember Before Refreshing Your Resume If you just bought new, expensive resume “paper”, you’ve already made a job-search mistake. Most job applications and resumes are submitted online now; one of countless new trends in the modern hiring process. Many job seekers are using outdated job-search practices, risking the impression that they are unable to keep up with technology. Are you worried that your resume is going stale? Or planning to refresh your resume? Read on to determine if it’s time to refresh your resume. Contact Information: This first section needs to include your name, address, email and phone number, as well as any links to portfolios or websites. Any links that you do include should be checked to make sure they work, and only include links to sites that you regularly update. Also be sure to include a professional email address, and avoid the inappropriate types of email-id, which sounds unprofessional. Education and Training Include alma mater details here, as well as any other training, certifications and accomplishments that are relevant to your position. This section doesn’t need to list past courses taken. Professional Experience Only list relevant jobs, not every part-time gig you held over the past 20 years. If you’re not sure if you should include a job, ask if it’s relevant to this position and to your current career goals. For the employers you do list, make sure to include details on tasks you are responsible for, as well as the company’s industry. Career Achievements/skills When referring to past accomplishments and roles, use the past tense. Only current jobs and projects should be written in present tense. Also size up your resume and determine if you’re including more tasks than results for previous positions. CareerBuilder.co.in is India's fastest growing online job site.
