What to write in the CV in the paragraph - about yourself
When the points on education and experience are already described in the compilation of the summary, when after painful reflections the "cost" of himself as an employee is named, all contacts are indicated, the column "Business and personal qualities" is left blank. There are questions - do I need to fill in this item at all, and if so, then what should I write?
Although the paragraph "Business and personal qualities" is not the most important in preparing a resume (after all, the most important thing is knowledge and experience), it is still necessary to fill it, even though not all personnel review this data. However, if the desired position is related to close contacts with people, top management, then the employer will pay close attention to this item.
However, one should not describe his virtues on several pages, attributing to himself all universal virtues. Serve yourself need to be smart, relevant and reserved. And this suggests that there can be no more than five declared positive characteristics about yourself!
The qualities should be related to the position. After all, middle-level positions do not need charisma and leadership qualities, but communication skills and stress-resistance are important for all workers without exception. The tone when filling this item is supposed to be very restrained, and humor should be completely absent, for it is not welcomed not only in this place, but also when filling out a resume in general. When describing personal qualities, one should not rely on templates. You just need to be aware of the characteristics that this type of activity needs, maybe even totally non-positive, under other circumstances. For example, in some cases, corrosiveness and pedantry will be considered the most necessary qualities.
It is necessary to fully realize that the described characteristics simply must correspond to reality. That is, if you specify the quality as punctuality, then the delay in meeting with the recruiter is impossible even for a split second.
There may be confusion when completing this summary, and write about yourself at least something is simply necessary. In this often, in general, case, one must remember that the employer welcomes such qualities as readiness for overtime work and excellent learning ability. And if this is true, then you can safely say about yourself in this perspective. Well, if there is still no readiness to work more than the required time, then it is worthwhile to probe yourself for the presence of such qualities as honesty, poise, diligence, initiative and the absence of bad habits. If there is one of the above, then you can safely say about this.
- Restrained, relevant and smart
