In India, millions of students graduating every year apply for key positions in reputed organizations. An effectively crafted “resume” is the first step to meeting a prospective employer. Old timers could afford to learn the art of making a resume through experience but not if you are seeking a job opportunity in the information technology age.
Most people find the idea of creating a resume overwhelming. Even the notion of revamping an existing resume can be daunting. An employer receives almost 100 - 200 resumes in response to a job posting, and only the resume that catches their eye will get a chance to get to the interview round and hence the resume has to stand out from the crowd.
Resumes and Curriculum Vitae both have similar purposes -– as marketing documents that provide key information about your skills, experiences, education, and personal qualities that show you as the ideal candidate.
