Why are resumes rejected? Basic Resume Tips for Job Seekers!

Are you not getting interviews though you have applied to hundreds of vacancies? The problem may be with your resume. A few checklists for you reference.

First impression

First impression matters. Yes! If your resume does not attract the reader's attention in the first 20-30 seconds, then your chances of obtaining an interview are greatly reduced. Put your work experience at the start of your resume, not personal or educational details, unless you have only just left education.

What an employer really wants to know is why they should invite you for an interview. For this reason, a short summary of your capabilities and/or a list of your major achievements can often be a good idea. This should make an employer want to invite you for an interview - but please be careful that you do not oversell yourself.

Poor visual layout

The visual layout of your resume is very important. Even though the words you use may be correct, if people cannot find the information they want quickly, they will move on to someone else's resume. You should use plenty of 'white' space in your resume and appropriate headings and section breaks.

Length of resume

It is usually best to try and keep your resume to two pages, unless someone specifically asks you for a longer resume. If you cannot keep your resume to this length, then you probably have not understood an employer's requirements. Employers do not want to know your whole life history - just enough to decide whether they should interview you or not.

Remember! Best Resume Gets You the Best Results, while Others Gets You the Worst!
