Secrets of successful filling the resume

  • completeness and authenticity of the information: your skills, сontact details, work experience – even if in another (!) area. Important attention should be paid to contact data. A pleasant impression leaves a summary of mistakes in phone numbers or mailbox addresses.
  • cover letter or resume under the vacancy. In fact, the call to the employer is to pay attention to you as a candidate. Even in the near future when opening a certain vacancy.
  • LinkedIn – an actual profile with your skills;
  • repositories, own portfolios and projects;
  • possession of foreign languages ​​(it is important to describe not general phrases: the level is satisfactory, but specific indicators! For example: tests IELTS, TOEFL.

It is important to post resumes at various sites and update information!

What should not be done:

  • to teach in the network ambiguous photo (better at all without a photo, rather than – light in the nature, with beer and kebabs);
  • to use the template phrases in the resume. For example: “creative, active, team player”. If You want to really showcase your own creativity – create a vivid, original resume that will be remembered.
  • do not take the phone, disappear when You are called. It’s better to immediately report that the offer is not of interest to You. Honesty is above all!
