Tips For Good Resume

In today’s competitive world, once you are completed with your MBA, next important step would be recruitment from top organizations. It is the time when the candidate needs to create his/her resume.

At this time the first and foremost step is candidate must know what the resume should be like.  A resume is an observable document, which means that you are summarizing your academics and experiences using a format that is systematic and organized. This resume serves as the candidate’s “First Impression”.

Let us look at the points which should be kept in mind while creating a MBA resume.

  • Provide contact Information

This should be written on the top left corner of the document. It includes your Name, Contact information.

  • Mention the Job title

It is the prime step to provide a job title. It includes an overview that highlights the candidate’s responsibilities, skills, achievements. Candidates who have many years of experience can brief down their workings, like name of the organization and tenure.

  • Use Bullets/Pointers

Always make use of the bulletins. Don’t make your resume too hard to read. Your resume should not look like a novel that scares the readers. So Using bullets, brief down your points. And, do not write unnecessary information.

  • Mention your leadership qualities

Providing candidate’s leadership skills is mandatory on an MBA Resume. Skills like positivity, how motivational you have been at your previous workplace, flexibility, commitment.

  •  Easy to read Resume

The resume should not  be lengthy at all. Recruiters find it boring when it comes to heavy texts.

  • Verifiable Information

The information that is written on your resume should be authentic, like  educational background, contact information. Recruiters reject  MBA applicants if they provide false and fraudulent information.

  • Good use of vocabulary

Make good use of vocabulary words, instead of simple words. As you will be going for the top-notch organizations, you must have good command over the language.

  • No personal information

The recruiters are simply not interested in knowing the candidate’s personal details like, height, weight, marital status, children etc. Do not provide these details as the recruiters find it deficient.
