How To Write a Professional Resume In 2021

What do interviewers see in a resume? Secondly, we will learn how to make a resume. Thirdly, I will make a resume in front of you so that you know exactly what to put in which section. But the most important point… Finally, I will give you a bonus tip that will take your resume to the next level! Before starting, let me clarify that you are free to edit your resume as you wish. Because there is no certified way to write a resume. The only thing that is certified is this. . That you and I will learn something new and useful every week. So if you want to learn things that were not taught at school, subscribe to this channel and tap on this bell icon! Let’s start! So what do interviewers “see” in a resume? It is less about what they” see “and more about the interviewees”see”. For example, let’s say this is the position we are applying for, for the role of a blockchain developer. Even if I took the example of a job in it, you can use the same principles for banking, education, hotel management, sales, or any other work. Now the problem is that no matter what job you are applying for, there will be 100, if not 1000 people applying for the same job! With these many profiles, interviewers will hardly spend about 6 seconds on your resume. It’s like being on Tinder.


If your profile is not attractive at first glance, you will immediately be swiped to the left because so many other profiles are waiting for a review, which is why your resume should not look like a boring long list! It should be like an advertisement. .. Short. To the point and crispy! And this brings us to the resume structure! To help you better understand the structure of the resume, I will write it with you. . Let’s use Google Docs because it’s free. Just to be clear, this video is not sponsored by Google Docs! You can use Microsoft Word or any other resume builder of your choice. I left the Google Docs link in the description! Go to this link, click this button and select the template that says “Resume”. As you can see, the structure is already built. Now let’s see what to fill in these sections. We will first create a profile of an experienced person, and then make some changes to this profile so that it becomes a fresh profile. Suppose we are going to apply for this role of a blockchain developer.

Interestingly, even Sugandh worked on the Blockchain. So I’ll start by creating his profile. Even if I take an example of computer work, you can use the same guidelines for any work in any field. The first thing you have to write is your name. Since I am profiling the fragrance, I will write her name. After the name, there is the professional title. This is where you use words or phrases that professionally define you as a problem solver, innovator, mentor, quick thinker, fireman, which means you are quick to solve problems! So here I will write innovator, mentor, and fireman. I write innovator because later I will mention some of its patents. So make sure to support everything you write in your professional title throughout our resume. Next comes the contact information and these are the things you can mention. The first is the email ID.

We all have strange college IDs, but please don’t write “[email protected] it sounds extremely unprofessional. Create a new ID that bears your name and mentions it, writes your phone number and then, mentions all the social media profiles relevant to the position for which you are applying, such as your LinkedIn profile. Or if you are applying for a digital marketing role, you can also refer Instagram to your Twitter or Instagram handle. Since this is for a computer job, I will mention here their LinkedIn profile and skyped, just in case someone from abroad wants to be interviewed on Skype. And most of that is what you need to mention in your contact information. Things you don’t have to mention are. . Your marital status, your religious affiliation, your DOB, or even your photo because all this is useless information that takes up unnecessary space. Then comes the experience.


Here you will first mention your current job, then go back and mention your old jobs in reverse chronological order. So mention the name of the company, your role, and just below that, the period during which you played this role. Aroma has worked for 3 companies before, so I will create 3 different sections. Suppose you were in the same company but had different roles, you may have a separate section for each role. Now that you have this template, under each section, write down your responsibilities and key deliverables in bulleted format. Remember that this section is an opportunity to show how your experience aligns with the situation for which you are applying.

Since we are applying for the role of blockchain developer, it makes sense to mention that he led a blockchain research group in his current business. Do not forget to sprinkle the keywords mentioned in the job description in your experience section, because this way the hiring manager will know that you have the experience the team needs. And secondly, always try to be specific about your achievements. Facebook suppose Facebook Facebook you are applying for a role in social media, so don’t just mention “manage Facebook pages”, but you can instead write Facebook ” reorganize a business page on Facebook that has attracted more than 70,000 followers. facebook suppose Facebook is”the application for you a role in social media.” (+40% over 2 months) and the resulting turnover increased by 4%. Do you see the difference? Because you have added a number to your achievement, it gives confidence to the hiring manager in your abilities. So try to add a number and determine as many points as possible.

Next comes Education. If you have been working for some time, it is best to keep your education section short and gentle. Suppose you have been working for 6 years or more, there is no point in mentioning your 10th and 12th percentiles. Just mention the details of your latest degree. So he did his bachelor’s degree from IIIT-H. Below I will mention the duration and then write in 3-4 points, I will mention the powers that are ACMG, any relevant course work, or respect and that’s it! If you are a student, you will obviously add a lot more to the education section. We will get there in a minute. Next, comes the skill. Generally, for software work, you can refer to languages and technologies that you know and evaluate them based on your knowledge. But be sure to include the mentioned skills in the job

description. So among all the skills mentioned here, he knows Java, JavaScript, blockchain, SQL, so I mentioned them here along with some other techniques. If you are not in the software field, you can mention your communication skills, critical thinking skills, leadership skills, social media skills, project management skills; don’t forget to mention the skills included in the job description. Next comes the additional section. It’s the best time to brag about awards, certifications, publications, patents, volunteer work, languages that you know, extracurricular activities, lectures and courses you have taken or any other hobby relevant to the position you are applying for. Just select the 2 best sections and mention them. So I will mention only 2 sections here. The awards he received and the fact that he has 3 patents under his name. Now, before exporting and sending this resume to a hiring manager, there are some important points to remember, but before that, let’s first see how to modify this profile so that it becomes a fresher profile. If you are new or applying for an entry-level job, the resume remains pretty much the same, except for 3 changes.


1: education if you are new, mention your education before your experience. List your institution name, degree, and time period in reverse chronological order up to your 10th standard, and remember that there is a separate column for your percentage or CGPA. Then comes the experience. I know, if you’re fresh, in the experience section you can’t write a lot, but here are some things you can mention. If you are an engineer, you must have done mini-projects during one semester. This is the perfect place to mention all. Write the name of the project and describe in 1-2 lines what this project is about. Mention all the internships you have completed, mention any articles you have worked on with your faculty. Even if you were taking classes for children or working at McDonald’s part-time to pay your tuition, mention it because it tells the hiring manager that you are committed and have developed a sense of professionalism in your life. The third and final transformation follows. If you are a student, there are many things you can mention in the additional section, the best is your competition score (whether it’s IIT-JEE, EAMCET, or even your chat rank).

If you have not given any, then no problem. Then you can refer to the University Festival in which you participated, hackathons, coding competitions, paper presentation competitions, You can also write about initiatives you have taken while in college, such as maintaining your college website, newsletter, or even your own blog. So these are 3 important differences between the profile of freshers and the profile of an experienced person. But before exporting, here are 3 important points to remember.

1: Keep your resume to 1 page, Max. If you have information related to the position for which you are applying, add an additional page. But if you add fluff only to add pages, then your resume will suffer. # 2: always reread and check your resume because nothing hurts a resume more than a grammar error. But the third and most important point, never found in your resume. If you do not have the skills, you may not get that job, but if you lie, you may not be called for future jobs that the company may have. Sometimes it is normal not to have skills as most companies would be willing to train you, but honesty is a skill that no company compromises on. This is how you write a resume.
