If you’re a Fresher without work experience, it can be difficult to identify what to put in your resume. Many freshers often pad their resumes to make it look bigger - Please don’t do that. Don’t talk about your parents and their professions Don’t use large fonts Don’t list down too many ways to contact you just to consume space Don’t write down a generic signature statement which will just be skipped Here are things you MUST add in detail: Your projects and internships - Many freshers often just provide a one-line about these. But, these points are exactly where you should elaborate more. Add sub-headings under your project - Overview, Methodologies/ Technical Skills, Your contributions, Learnings etc. Guide the interview: Your CV is not just a way to talk about your achievements. It can also be a good way for you to guide your interview, so that the conversation turns towards your strengths. Mention your favorite subjects, books you’ve read, blogs you follow etc. Use power verbs and numbers: Power verbs like led, organized, achieved, implemented, envisioned etc are all good. Use numbers to be more specific about your achievements. Examples below: Won second place among 35 participants Created 12 articles with a total views of 4370 during my internship Make sure you get 4–5 friends to review your CV once. Finally, make sure you are prepared to field questions on any topic you have mentioned in your Resume. If you have mentioned something in your CV, Interviewers believe that it is fair game to question you on that topic. So prepare yourself accordingly.

You must approach this from a Recruiter’s perspective. The reason this question is asked is to see if a candidate actually has the ability to introspect and identify flaws. Because identifying flaws in yourself is the first and most important step. Fixing them is easier. Most often, people flock to the well known and used answer of “My biggest weakness is that I am a perfectionist”. There are a few reasons why this answer doesn’t bode well for many interviewees. One reason is that it is completely overused and unoriginal. Another is that it is an answer that is designed to try to make you look good and the person interviewing you can see right through this! How can you answer this: There is no definite way of answering this question. Just make sure that your answer is honest, shows self- introspection and includes a story of self improvement. This way whoever is asking the question knows that you have really spent time reflecting on your abilities and flaws. In addition this shows, that you take initiative and have began a journey with positive indications of self-improvement. Let’s talk about it in detail: Choosing a weakness: This is the first and most important step to make your answer look genuine and acceptable. Therefore choose an answer that is: Obvious and has been noticed by the interviewer already: “English is not my primary language. My spoken English is not very good.” or “I haven’t had much work experience.” Something that is NOT extremely crucial for the role that you are applying for: For a Finance Role: “I am not very good at interacting with people and I am socially awkward.” For a Sales & Marketing Role: “I have always performed poorly in Mathematics. Trigonometry and Calculus are just not my cup of tea.” A common human failure that is shared by most people: “I find it hard to say no to people” or “I have not really made the most of the opportunities that life has given me” For Reference: https://codeground.in/blog/index.php/2016/10/05/what-are-your-weaknesses/ Was this Content Useful?
