To write a perfect resume you should plan a strategy for your resume by deciding what type of resume your need to produce. Build a perfect strategy and execute it step by step. Before getting started to writing your resume, prepare for it.

Writing objective statement or summary of resume:-

This section is probably written at the top of the resume below contact information. This is the starting point of the resume so it should be powerful enough that can grab instant attention of the reader. Don’t just copy-paste objective statement from the sample resume, it can hurt your resume reputation. Give sufficient time to prepare for your own unique objective. It should be 3 to 4 sentences that describe what are your relevant traits and your abilities of handling job responsibilities. Focus on employer’s needs, don’t tell him what type of job you want to do or what kind of work suites you. Save your job expectations for the interview. Through the objective or summary statement show the employer that you are capable to do work assigned by him.

Writing Qualifications section:-

In this section you can highlight your most sellable job relevant skills and technical certifications. This is the best place to sell your qualifications and convince the recruiter to call you for interview. Highlight your best skills and qualifications in bulleted format so the reader can have clear understanding of what you want to demonstrate them.

Writing Experiences section:-

State experiences in easily understandable format making it simple to understand what dates are of what experiences. Keep enough white space between experiences. Give detailed explanation of your experiences and show your achievements that relate to the job. If you don’t have enough experiences you may also list relevant internship work, any coursework that relate to the job. Employers want to know what you learned and achieved during these experiences so it is crucial to provide detailed work explanation.

Education/Training:-

List your recent degrees and relevant qualifications with coursework and certifications. Provide passing year, grade/marks you achieved, name of the university/institutions where you appeared for these courses. If you don’t provide all this information employer can assume that you are trying to hide something.

Proofread your resume:-

After you finish writing your resume don’t forget to proofread it several times. It’s very hard to find out own mistakes so have it proofread from friends and/or family members. Check out your resume for typos and correctness of the information. You probably don’t want to take a chance of getting your application rejected for such mistakes.
