  2. 2. Definition of Resume: A resume is a printed certificate that lists your workpractice, skills, and educational background. It is used as anadvertising tool for job seekers.How to make a resume? There are many types of resumes which are usedaccording to the type of job or work.Some basic types of resumes are given below with shortdetails: 1. Sequential Resume This resume also called “Chronological Resume”. It is a type of resume that first listswork history, with most recent job listed first. A sequential resume is best for those who havemostly worked in the same field throughout their career and can show a stable sequence upthe ladder (each job is a step-up from the last). For example, someone who has worked as a receptionist, then as a legal secretary,and is now a paralegal may want to choose a chronological resume when applying for a newjob. The focus of this type of resume is job experience. 2. Practical Resumes This resume is also called “Functional Resume”. It is a type of resume thatemphasizes skills and experience, instead of chronology of work experience. A functionalresume is best suited for those who cannot show a steady career progression. This type ofresume is designed to highlight specific skills rather than job titles. For example, a functional resume is best for peoplewho have changed jobs frequently, or who have gaps intheir work history. A mother who took time off to raise afamily would likely benefit from a functional resume. Aphotographer who has won awards for their photographs,but who has only had one job working as a photographerwould also benefit from the format of a functional resume.The focus of this type of resume is skills and experience,not job history. 3. Mixture Resume This resume type is also called “Combination Resume”. It is a type of resume thatcombines the elements of a functional resume with those of a chronological resume. Acombination resume is best for those who have specific skills, and wish to highlight how theywere acquired. If someone have developed a special skill set from a wide variety of activities,
  3. 3. and if we have specific skills and an evolving work history where we acquired them, acombination resume is likely the best style of resume for us.Important techniques for a attractive ResumesFormatting ResumeRegardless of which resume style we choose to use, it should always be formatted in aspecific way. Proper formatting ensures that our accomplishment will be noticed instead ofthe font. By following the guidelines below, we’ll be helping ourselves, polish our resume sothat it makes a strong first impression.1 Resume formatting techniques. Some guidelines to follow when formatting a resume:  Set margins to 1” all the way around.  Use a standard font such as Arial or Times New Roman.  Use font size 16 for name, 14 for section headings, and 12 for all other text.  Use bold font for name and section headings.  Use plenty of white space (blank lines). The proper use of white space will make resume easy to scan quickly and much easier to read.  Always use white paper and black font.2 Headings/ Sections. The heading of our resume should include our name, address, telephone number, ande-mail address. Our name should be in 16-point bold type, and the rest of the heading inregular 12-point font. We may either center the information, or justify it to the left or right ofthe page.3 Spell check and proofreading This step cannot be overemphasized. Proofreading of resume several times. Havesomeone else proofread it. Then, have another person further removed from we read it.Spelling and grammar errors in a resume will get it discarded regardless of our skills andexperience. Some things to look for when proofreading are:  Spelling mistakes  Grammatical errors  Incorrect contact information  Typos  Misuse of the apostrophe, plurals, and possessives

  5. 5. Difference b/w CV and Resume.1: Different length. A resume should be shorter than CV. Compare justCV with resume. Dont compare documents with otherpeoples documents. For example, our resume may be longerthan somebody elses CV. If this is the case then its not anissue. As a general rule, a CV is expected to have a lengthof 2 or more pages. A resume should be less than 2 pages. Aresume can be even shorter than 1 full page.2: Similar sections. Both a CV and a resume should include our full name, address, contact information,education work experience and skills. We dont add irrelevant sections to our resume anddont leave out essential sections from our CV.3: Different sections. In addition to a resume, a CV can and should include awards, teaching experience,hobbies, referees, grants and fellowships, diplomas, computer skills, work related skills,courses completed and any other relevant information. For most positions, recruiters receive tens or even hundreds of applications. So, if weadd lots of irrelevant information in a lengthy CV, our CV may be discarded. Along with theCV, well lose the chance of coming to an interview. To prevent this from ever happening, we
  6. 6. should write a hassle free CV thats easy to understand. Use simple everyday English. Try tobe clear rather than persuasive.4: Underlining principles. In both cases, we make sure write the events in a sequential order. Its easier forpeople to understand events if they are a presented in a sequential order. Our skills, experience and education are the most important aspects. We shoulddesign our CV or resume around them. While we write either a CV or a resume, we should pay particular attention to ourwriting. Writing concisely, clearly and simply shows that we think clearly and learn quickly.Writing, learning and thinking are all interrelated. Every word should mean something and itshould add to the explanation. Write short phrases. Leave out any word which doesntabsolutely have to be part of the phrase.5: Different rules in different countries. In America, United States and Canada use a resume as a general rule. In the rest of theworld, a CV is expected and often demanded. However, most of the companies dont wantlengthy CVs with irrelevant stuff in it. They do not care that much about our childhood orabout what you did in your third grade. They want only the information that is relevant to theposition we are applying for. The perfect CV outside U.S. and Canada is less than 2 pages long and it has only therelevant information the employer needs. While a resume is about being brief, the perfect CVis about including only the relevant information. *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
