CV / Resume Formatting

We all know what a CV/ Resume should contain, and in general terms, how it should be arranged on the page. In spite of knowing all the technicalities, people still commit the mistake of writing CV with the same headlines, the same order of ideas, and the same general matter in a dull business language. In this way, the CV looks indeed as a poor copy of a standard template.

What should be?
The formatting should be backed up by the right information of course, but in order to have a good flow of ideas, the Resume should have a building-up style of presentation. You start at the personal details, or educational qualification, extra curricular activity, and slowly build up to show how your talents are best suited for the job at hand.

How it looks?
Bullet points look perfect when listing job responsibilities, or personality traits, or overall achievements headings. However, if the bullet points do not have an anchor that explains what they are, it will be difficult for the CV to really hold the prospective employer's interest.

Do not state the obvious - depending upon the job achievements do not re-inforce certain traits which are self-evident, such as good leadership, good communication skills, etc. Go ahead and use the paper for traits that are not visible from what you have presented so far. For example, you are a successful marketing manager - it is understood that you are a good strategist - but you could also add that you are a tough negotiator who saved the company a great deal of money. This would be a trait that would add value to your CV and identify you as having good potential.

Resume formatting is Trendy!
Writing a Resume is hard work - do not kid yourself that it is any other way. It is not just the way you put together your personal data - but rather the way you arrange that personal and professional data to attract the attention the interest of the prospective employer. It is an art that has to be perfected with time, patience and practice. It is the most important tool in job searching since it gives the opening line to the employer and thus creates the first impression about you in his/her mind.

How we do?
We arrange the Resumes/ CVs in the client's own desired format. Whatever format is made available, CV's can be arranged. Like some company wants professional experience should be copied with the logo of the company where candidate has ever worked. So, we have to find out the company's logo or relevant picture to create an impact on the employer. Every company has own designed format with the motto that CV looks fine, precise and concise.

What you have to do?
You have to send the most urgent CV's/ Resumes which have to produce to the employer in a day or same day along with the desired format. We put all content of the CVs in appropriate manner and revert back to you with formatted, nicely looking, and concise resumes within stipulated time.
