    A resume is basically a list of what you have done.

    If you are young, then the list will appear very short.

    You can fix this by adding things such as your career ambitions (but make sure they match up to the job) and your personal qualities( the same).


    Contact details: email, telephone and address (if you live far from the place you are applying for, you can change that).

    Persoanl qualities
    Eg, I am a dedicated worked with an attention to detail (one paragraph)

    Career goals
    I am hoping for a career in retail. I looking for an entry level job where I can learn about the trade….


    Past work experience

    Include volunteer jobs and anything if you haven’t worked before.

    Hobbies and interests
    If they are relevant. Eg, playing basketball is great to list if you are applying for a job in a sports store.

    Fill these details properly.

    Make a table using these columns:

    Fill these table-details properly.

    Give details if u have an experience of the job or not. If yes then write where and how much experience do u have.If u have no experience, don’t write thus column !

    The best answer of this column is: “As Per The Rules.”

    write the answer why are u changing ur job from anywhere.

    Give 1 or 2 names of reputed fellows who know your profile.

    I would suggest NOT using Lovely’s post about resume structure. The best advice I could offer is to use a professional website as guidance. The best site I have found for resume help is http://www.theresumesource.com

    It has the proper structure of a resume in an easy-to-read format. It also has a list of descriptive words and general resume suggestions.

    Besides setting all margins to 1″, the most important criteria for setting up a professional resume besides relevant text, is “scanability.” Here are some helpful tips:

    1. Place just below your identification header [your hame, address, phone, email address] any Conditional Warning Statement such as “Confidential Resume,”Do Not Contact Current Employer,” etc.
    2. Always fill-in an Objectives category [just below the Conditional Warning Statement] and make sure that he Objective will contribute to the profitability of your future employer;
    3. Select a mono-type font such as Helvetica, Arial, Courier or Times Roman; do not select any cursive handwriting styles which cannot scanned;
    4. Keep font sizes within a range of 10 to 12 pts.;
    5. Avoid styling text with a justified alignment, keep it flushed left;
    6. Instead of using tabs to set up blocked text entries, generate a table and use the column and row settings accordingly;
    7. Do not place an i.d. picture anywhere on the resume, this is a major taboo due to discrimination issues;
    8. Do not place any graphic text [saved as .gifs] onto the resume since it may be overlooked during the scanning phase;
    9. List at the very end of the resume your interests which should include travel experiences, language skills, social interactions such as golf, team sports, tennis, etc.

    In conclusion, the above helpful hints were designed to allow ease of scanning of your resume into PDF which can then be text captured for seach purposes by your potential employer. If the original resume was created in Word, WordPerfect or Mac Appleworks, it can be Saved As a PDF file which then can be saved as an email attachment. Otherwise, you can simply use a scanner and scan a hard copy of the resume and then save as a PDF file.

    Failure to conform the resume to appropriate fonts and styles as outlined above will result in rejection of the resume simply due to the inability of the scanning device to properly index relevant resume entries.

    Good luck!
