Here are a few things you should consider while preparing your resume.[/text][custom_heading level=”h2″ id=”” class=”” style=””]Objective – An old fashioned start[/custom_heading][text]Every other resume has it and honestly saying it doesn’t do great, obviously you are applying for a job and your objective is to get the role, no need to waste that precious space by writing those cheesy lines.
If something is really unique about you like change of domain or work area, it would be a good idea to add a little brief or a summary.
Use cover letters about your objectives and why you want the job, don’t be confused between the content of resume and cover letter, things like your objective, why you will be a good fit for the organization etc. should be put on a one pager comprehensive cover letter.[/text]
This used to be a standard in the past, but today all this information leads to discrimination, racism and other illegitimate things.[/text]
What i suggest is to take a moderate approach, include all you recent experiences as it shows what you have been doing in last 5 or 10 years, try not to include irrelevant experiences if you have done something that doesn’t relates to your core work area. Also, if you have more than 15 years of experience under your belt, try to make another section ‘Prior Experience’ and consolidate your early experiences over there, in a couple of lines.[/text]
If you are learning something new, show yourself as a fast learner not as an expert just to land that job, hiring companies mostly look for the passion to learn and your capability to rapidly adapt with the fast paced changing world.[/text]
Hobbies, Why ?
Nobody cares about what you do in your free time if it doesn’t concern the job you are applying for, save that white space on the paper and put something reasonable.

Bullets are good to attract attention to most important aspects of your resume but don’t overload your resume with bullets. Format your CV properly , make proper size and readable sections, indent it well, be consistent with date formats and stick to it throughout.[/text]
Its your resume and obviously it’s about you, so don’t use words like “I,” “me,” “she,” or “my,”.
Technically saying its your CV that’s telling about you, not you.
