Job Application and Resume Writing

Format of a Résumé

Although the templates of résumés vary from profession to profession, we will discuss the most widely accepted format here, which consists of −

  • Name− Full name of the applicant without general salutations like Mr., Ms.
  • Address− the permanent address
  • Objective− the aim of your professional life
  • Education− your academic qualification
  • Skills− areas of expertise in your profession
  • Programming Languages− if any
  • Software Tools− Software tools you use in your profession (MS Word, Excel)
  • Operating System Platforms− operating system you use (Windows, Mac)
  • Database Management System− if any
  • Personal Skills− soft skills
  • Experience Breakdown− detailed explanation of your experience
  • Achievements & Interests− Hobbies. Achievements in professional life
  • Declaration− stating all information provided about the applicant as true

NOTE − Fields marked (e, f, i) will change as per applicant’s area of expertise. Points (g, h) are considered parts of a general template now, as almost all the companies now expect the candidate to have basic computer proficiency on some specific software tool (MS Word, MS Excel, etc…).
