RÉSUMÉ ADVICE


Your future starts from your Résumé

A well written résumé is paramount to making a positive impression to potential employers. Realistically, employer or HR staff will look at your résumé for about 30 seconds and only if impressed will dig deeper, so make your résumé easy to scan, with the important information highlighted on the first page.

Be sure to use a simple font and effective spacing. Be specific and concise. Information in your résumé should always be tailored and relevant according to the job/role you are applying for

Do always include:

  • All of your contact details: complete name, complete address, valid telephone/mobile numbers and email.
  • A summary of your education and qualifications, with your highest qualifications coming first, should include dates (Month and Year), type of institution, location and type of course. If your academics are poor in relation to work experience, they can come at the end of the résumé, and focus on work experience.
  • Include a summary of your technical skills and years / months of experience with each. This can be in point or bullet style.
  • Include all the languages (no need to include dialects) you speak and/or write and your fluency in each.
  • List your employment history; the most recent coming first. Projects and specific areas YOU worked on are key points
    • Briefly describe your responsibilities
    • Give highlight key achievements
  • Share why you want to be part of their company or why you want to work overseas
  • Do not use abbreviations – most of foreign employers are not familiar with our local
  • Be sure to review your résumé each time you will submit to a prospective employer.

Ideally your résumé will be 2 pages maximum unless you are at 10 - 20+ years of experience, in which case possibly 4 pages.

Remember that your résumé is meant to highlight your skills, experience and achievements. It should be clear, concise, and professional. Your personality shines through in your interview.
