How not to Write a Resume

Make your CV effective with these 5 tips from the Imarticus Learning placement Team

Everyone wants a resume that will stand out from the crowd. But sometimes, candidates tend to go a bit too far to grab attention – Sometimes, to the extent of making some serious mistakes that can work against them. Want to ensure that your application doesn’t get thrown into the recycling bin before you’re even considered for the job?

The Placements team at Imarticus Learning chalks out 5 Don’ts for an effective resume.

Don’t Get Experimental: Using elaborate fonts and colours to make your CV stand out can be a bit of an eyesore. The more gimmicky you make your CV using different shapes and pictures, the more off-putting it will be to an employer. In terms of the fonts, you should ideally stick to Soft, gentle and modern, this is the default font of many email programs, so it’s familiar to the eye  Times New Roman or Arial – remember, the goal is to make it easy to read. Also, do not include any graphics such designs or photographs in your resume.

Don’t ramble: Keep information relevant and to the point. A resume should be as brief as possible and include no extraneous information. An employer really doesn’t need or want to know all the one-day training courses or participation certificates you have received in life.

Do not exaggerate: The bigger the lies you put on your CV the worse it will be for your career. After all, your employer is bound to notice if you aren’t performing as well as your CV promised. Also, you aren’t the only one telling tall tales. Most employers these days have seen it all when it comes to embellishments and are thus not fooled. Our advice is to always keep it as honest as possible. After all, if you manage to get a job based on exaggerations you could be let go of pretty quickly. That wouldn’t look good on your CV either, would it?

Stay away from Clichés: Phrases such as “I am a highly motivated individual who works well on my own or in a team” “I love challenges” and “I live for deadlines” are dull. Employers have to read them several times a day because they are so common. Make yourself stand out with carefully worded phrasing that is factual and captures your professionalism as well as the employer’s attention.

Check for Grammatical Errors: This is the most crucial point, one that will make or break your CV. Language and grammatical errors reflect directly on your persona so be careful of the spellings and language. Use words you know, stay away from using big fancy words just for the sake of it and at all times avoid jargons and abbreviations.

We asked our faculty and management for their views on the Budget 2013. Here’s what they had to say-

On the budget as a whole

This is a big picture budget making the best out of a bad situation, big problems of fiscal consolidations needs to be addressed and has been done in principle. Focus on the overall growth across urban and rural areas is a welcome step and builds confidence. The  direction taken is one of inclusivity. Growth without employment has been hurting India for past few years, FM has introduced welcome measures to improve the skill sets thereby impacting positively on the employability factor . This has been done by providing impetus to skill development institutes , however I am hoping government gives due importance to private players who will play a big role in coming years. ~ Suresh Rao, Faculty


A budget for the country than for serving the political agenda of the ruling party where the  Finance minister P Chidambaram has boldly voted for growth over politics.A rare budget where he has gambled on good economics proving to be good politics too. This is a clear deviation from past budgets where  a finance minister has rejected populist giveaways so decisively in an election year. He has dared to win the next elections not through tax breaks and freebies, but by accelerating GDP growth and taming inflation through fiscal consolidation.This will be delivered through his promise of fiscal prudence (restricting fiscal deficit to 5.2% of GDP this year and 4.8% next year), yet provided for a 29% rise in Plan spending next year by assuming very high tax buoyancy. ~ Jasjeet Kaur, Management


 

Impact on Education

Service tax exemption for vocational education courses will encourage more such institutions to come up and will boost skill development programmes. However , the definition of approved vocational course in section 65B(11) of Finance Act 1994 , should be reviewed to include all service sectors and not limited to Industrial / Manufacturing processes. ~ Harish Thakkar, Faculty 

The 2013 budget seems promising to the overall education sector with an increase of 17% of allocated budget. However, a higher allocation of budget does not necessarily mean education reform. More emphasis is needed on curriculum design and professional skill development. 1000 crore allocation to NSDL is a step in the right direction.~Sonya Hooja, Founder
