A Strong Resume at the Difficult Time of COVID-19

As a result of the virus pandemics, many people face the need to seek a new job. In this article, you’ll learn how to write a strong resume. A resume is a document that ensures first contact with the employer. Preparing a good resume requires commitment and about 3 hours of time. A well-devised resume can be the key to an interesting job.

A well-devised resume should fulfill several functions:

  1. Spark interest – draw the recipient’s attention with the key information that serves as keywords.
  2. Present the candidate in the very best light – a resume is key to a job interview.  Tell about yourself in a succinct and concise manner so that a person reading your resume would like to meet you. It’s your one-of-a-time opportunity to present yourself in the best light possible.
  3. Provide the key information– the greatest concern of recruiters is that nearly 50 % of applications contain no information they’re looking for. These are only brief lists of a candidate’s previous workplaces. To learn more, you’d have to call the candidate and dedicate time to an interview. Well, if a recruiter is intrigued, he or she will probably make a call.  But if they’re not interested in your resume and there are even several tens of better-written documents of the desk, they probably won’t bother to call you.

Start from a summary.

A summary should take up to 3-4 sentences. It should include a brief description of what you do, your key experiences, and the things you’re proud of at the very beginning. It might take the form of a continuous body of text or a few points.

Skills are equally important part of a resume.

Prior to preparing you list of skills, read the job offer closely. If you find in the ad competences that you have or that are overlapping with yours, add them to your resume.

Use read-made Word templates or a resume creator.

Focus on the content. You can build your resume using a document creator.
