Remember fresh and relevant resumes have the best chances of bringing the Dream Job you always wanted.

Submit your Full Resume

Many candidates only provide their basic details like functional area, work experience etc. If you submit your full resume covering your career objective, past work experience (Names of Previous employers, nature of responsibilities), achievements, skills along with basic information like functional area, number of years of experience, current location, preferred locations, educational qualifications etc., then an employer is much more likely to call you for an interview.


Update your resume at least once in a month. Include any fresh information that you might have to offer from time to time. Even if there is no fresh information, updating frequently confirms to prospective employers that you are ready to change. Remember, employers get to see when the resume was last updated and they are more likely to call a candidate who has recently refreshed his resume.

Keywords should be used to describe your skills and experience as accurately as possible so that all the relevant employers find your resume. A few examples are given below : A Sales professional may choose from : Sales, Concept Selling, Institutional Sales, Retail Sales, Services, Key Account Management, Distribution, Business Development etc. A Software Programmer may choose from : C, C++, Java, Perl, VC++, VB, COBOL, WML, XML, HTML, DHTML, Activex, ASP, COM/DCOM, CGI, Perl, Web Servers, Lotus Domino Unix, Linux, HP/UX, Solaris,Windows NT, Windows 95, Windows 98, IBM, etc. The keywords given above are just examples and you could use any keyword.
