5 Resume Tips that Guarantee Interview

Folks,

Companies really don't have any time to look into all resumes in detail.


Resumes are used to filter all the applications and help companies short-list a few students for an interview.

Here are 5 resumes tips that will get you invited for an interview

Highlight your Projects/Internships

Companies look at Projects & Internships to see if you have done anything that reflects your potential capability.

Also, it helps to know how different you are from your peers. Stand-out from other students, by mentioning your projects & internships done.

Without these, your resume will be very ordinary. Make your resume special, by doing special work – projects, internships, research work etc.

Mention your contribution to project/internship – When writing about a project or an Internship experience, mention what your contribution was, what difference did you make? For example –

I designed the front-end for my college website www.<collegewebsitename>.com

Designed a model Liquid waste recycling system to treat and completely re-use the liquid wastes from the college kitchens.

As a reporter for Hindu’s daily supplementary “Metro Plus”, I received 5 bylines for the articles I contributed in the technology section.

Quantify your project/internship/education results – Always quantify your achievement or results from a project, internships, paper presentation, your education and more. This will help companies understand your work better. For example -

The project i did helped save 40% energy.

The college/company has presently implemented my project on a small scale. This will be scaled up on successful operation for one year.

I was chosen as 1 among the 1000 students in my college, to participate in the debate.

Interview

Upload your projects/presentations and give links - Always give links to the work done by you. If it is a paper presentation, give links to the journal. Also try to upload your projects online and give links to them. For example -

Upload articles you write and give the links, when you apply for any writing job/internship.

Upload your designs/software code and give links – will help companies understand you better.

Specific Objective – Companies use objective section to check if their requirement and your objective match. Hence write a specific objective, when applying for an internship or job. For Example -

Entry level programmer in a software development company.

A position as a trainee in a petro-chemical company.

Intern in a marketing role in a web startup.

I guarantee that if you follow these tips, you will certainly be called for interview at a good company or university!
