Creating a Perfect Resume
Creating a perfect resume is your key to getting your desirable job. Before applying to Dr.Jobs Application, we will put in your hands some beneficial tips on how to build your resume.
- Decide the type of resume you want.
There are three types of résumés: chronological, functional and combination. You may need to choose more than one format of resume if you're applying for more than one job.
- Chronological is perhaps the simplest resume to write and the most preferable by the employers, it lists experiences according to the order in which they took place which allows employers to quickly skim through.
- Functional is the perfect type if you want to change your career path or you don’t have practical work experience for it’s a skill-based CV that lists your experiences according to skills first then your work experience..
- Combination combines the best aspects of the chronological and functional styles, But be careful with the length of this format as it can quickly get long.
A header should include your full name with the entire of its letters capitalized, phone number that you answer every time (Don’t forget to make a professional voice message if necessary), and professional email address like [email protected] instead of [email protected]
In one or two sentences, make a strong and simple summary of your work experience and relevant skills. You don't have to include a summary if your experience speaks for itself and is relevant to the jobs you're applying for.
For chronological or Combination resumes; list your work experiences starting from the most recent.
*For each work; write the duration, the place and the accomplishments.
*Use the key words to express achievement like: achieved, accelerated, expanded, influenced, solved, trained, or maintained.
*List out all the skills that are relevant to your desirable job clearly, shortly, and to the point. Give to each skill a 2-3 lines explaining how you learned that skill. Also, listing the computer programs you’re expert in dealing with is an added credit.
List activities which you’ve participated in and include what your specific role was in each. For instance, membership or leadership positions in clubs or community organizations and so on. Also, if you have been through an interesting job that doesn’t relate to your work like working with children of disabilities, mentioning them will be excellent
- List the schools you've attended, starting with the most recent one. Include details such as GPA, class rank or special awards
- Add any other educational experiences, such as training programs, community college or summer courses, seminars and so on

So, if you are finding trouble coming up with interests, you can skip this part over.
