|求职英语：Resume Writing 简历写作
[ 2006-10-26 09:33 ]
Developing a resume is the first step in any successful job search. The
average resume is written out of necessity. Everyone knows you have to have one
to get a job.
Your resume is like your personal movie trailer. You want your resume to
capture your employer's interest, so they'll want to learn more about you.
An effective resume will quickly highlight who you are, where you can be
reached, and information about your most recent educational or training
experiences. To make writing your resume as painless as possible, assemble the
following information before you begin:
·Personal information such as name,
address, phone, and e-mail address
·Current job objective
·Work experience, including duties and dates of
·Accomplishments (particularly as they relate to work experience)
·Specific skills and abilities
·Information about software knowledge or
machinery you can operate
·References if possible.
Writing a resume applies some strict rules. You should be clear and concise,
1-2 pages should be the maximum. Be honest about your experience and goals (but
present them in the best possible light). Stress what you can do and what you've
learned. Be neat---no typos, smudges, etc. Don't forget to include volunteer
work, work and school awards and honors, notable skills---that your employers
are interested in all of these. Make the most of your experience. Be proud of
what you've done in the past. This helps make a positive impression.
Last but not least, do remember to proofread it! We can't over-emphasize the
need to proofread your resume--and better yet, have someone else proofread it
for you, Give them to your English teacher or guidance counselor and have them
look it over. Two sets of eyes are better than one--your proofreader may catch
mistakes that you missed, but an employer won't miss. Resumes with grammar
mistakes, misspellings or uneven margins often get tossed.
