We always keep talking about customizing one’s resume to match the job we are targeting. In order to understand this better, I posted a question on the HR forums on LinkedIn.
Findings as follows –
- If you are a Fresher
- Focus on projects and seminars, do your homework on these parts
- Do not forget your academics, and also the institute you are graduating from
- Extracurricular activities make a difference between a bland resume and a resume with a personality matching yours
- If you are an Experienced Professional
- Relevant experience
- Team management skills
- Job stability
- If you are aiming for a Senior Management position
- Leadership abilities and team building skills
- Richness of experience and high bandwidth of skills
- Crisis management
