Tips for freshers to improve their CV



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.

1) Use Good format and Indentation for your resume

There are millions of candidates searching for jobs and each of them bombards lots of resume to their desired companies for different job vacancies. Just imagine you in the hiring situation, can u read the entire resume?

Definitely not! 25 seconds would be the maximum time allocated for your resume. In such cases you need to provide good formatting, readable and attractive resume to save more time.

Give proper headings, indent margins.

Use bold, italic and underlined options whenever required.

Bullets can be used for catchy points.

2) Use Verbs

Using specific verbs in your resume is not only mandatory but also attractive for it will provide a clear view of what your actual job profile was or is. For instance anyone can say “Worked as a programmer” and that doesn’t really provide any detailed description about your profile. Instead use words like organized or project-head for entry-level engineer.

3) Serve your resumes with respect to the industries

If you are applying for journalist job or some creative writing job then you can decorate your resume with creative words or sometimes pictures too but if you are applying for the job of mechanical engineer in a company like L & T then you need to be a professional in presenting your resume and providing a creative resume will not serve your purpose over here. Just be clear, crisp and neat.

4) Try using new words like Career Summary instead of Objective

Right from the beginning always have a motto of impressing your hiring manager, remember you just have 25 seconds for that. Do not follow the crowd in using the same words like “Objectives” or “Aim”, be different! Career Summary will actually provide you details about who you are and what you actually do in a profile. Just be creative and attractive!

A resume is the first impressive connect between the candidate and the hiring manager. As the saying goes “First Impression is the Best Impression”. Impress your hiring manager and market yourself by using these resume writing tips:

5) Express your achievements in quantity

The only mistake which most of the fresher software engineer do is providing too many theoretical details like CISCO, CCNA courses. The hiring manager doesn’t need your biography of academic or professional achievements. You need to market your skill in the given 25 seconds of reading time by the hiring manager. So just mention highlighted points of your achievements, make it numerically expressive or in terms of percentages to attract the manager.

Here are the best resume preparation for fresher: 

  • BASIC RESUME LAYOUT FOR A FRESHER:

The layout of a usual fresher resume is quite simple:

– Header with name and contact information: Needs to be easy to read with a large standard format.

– Career objective statement: Not mandatory, if included, keep it short and sweet. Not useful always.

– Educational Qualifications: Spell out significant information. Check to ensure you’re giving all the desired information and plainly define your skill sets with respect to application prerequisites. Utilize same keywords from the job criteria to get past computer screening.

– Software based skills: A common requirement for majority of the employers.
