Be honest Never lie or stretch the truth on your resume. If your employer finds out later you will probably be terminated. If your resume is lacking in some areas build those areas up honestly by increasing your skills instead of pretending. The truth will always come out eventually and it usually hurts you in the end.
Resumes have long been a staple of the job seeker. No matter where you apply or what field youre looking for work in most employers are looking for some sort of resume to give them an idea of who you are and what you have done up to this point. Even with the high level of importance placed on the resume many people have no idea where to begin or what a good resume should look like. Here are ten tips to help you write a better resume and get the job you really want.
In-all a good template makes the resume stand out from the crowd a raw template made before-hand saves your time when you need to make some quick changes or wish to make the resume target a specific job opportunity and is appealing. So in a world where looks have the power to hide the content why not take the benefit?
The template of the resume which is actually the outline or the structure of the resume decides the positioning of every element of the resume. If this positioning is clear and clean with an equal weightage given to every element it appears that there is a flow in the format and so the resume appears attractive. Such a resume neither looks like a piece of art which shows that you were keen about the outline of the resume rather than the content nor does it appear as an essay.
