What is a Resume?
A resume is a formal document that provides an overview of your professional qualifications, including your relevant work experience, skills, education, and preeminent accomplishments. The Word “résumé” originates from French, and means “summary”. A resume helps you demonstrate your abilities and convince employers you’re qualified and hireable.
The Purpose of a Resume
Many of us whether fresher or job seekers assume that the purpose of a resume is to provide a full overview of our Educational or professional history. Instead, the goal of your resume is to convince employers you’re worth interviewing. If your resume provides a concise summary of your relevant qualifications and skills in a format that makes your ability to handle the work as clear as possible, you will get more interviews.
What is a Curriculum vitae (CV)?
A CV is a marketing tool and maybe one of the most important documents you write in your professional life. It is the sum and substance of your work history, education and indicates a particular career direction. It should demonstrate credibility and be interesting because your CV is like a personal advertisement, it should convince a potential employer that you are an outstanding candidate for the job and that you will contribute to the organization. Your CV has to sell you in short order. While you may have all the requirements for a particular position, your CV is a failure if the employer does not instantly come to the conclusion that you "have what it takes." The first hurdle your CV has to pass - whether it ends up in the "consider file" or the "reject file" - may take less than thirty seconds. To prepare a successful CV, you need to know how to review, summarize, and present your experiences and achievements on one page. Unless you have considerable experience, you don't need two pages. Outline your achievements briefly and concisely. Your CV is your ticket to an interview where you can sell yourself!
