Errors in writing a resume
Often candidates create a resume describing your previous duties, i.e. directly answer the question "What did you do?" But we need to talk about something else — what you were good for business. It is desirable to show it by examples, to identify achievements in numbers or percentages. It's not what you were reporting, and that in this work showed the advantage of valuable for the company. Enter your universal skills, those that can be useful in different areas.
Write a summary in a direct, and not in reverse chronological order. This is incorrect. The first line should be the last post. Relatively speaking, a candidate vying for the position of "commercial Director", and the first he is listed as "Secretary". You need to understand that the employees HR per day to get hundreds of resumes, they read quickly and inadequate jobs, the questionnaire is immediately sent to the trash.
About money at a meeting
Perhaps, in summary don't answer because you pointed it desirable salary. Not worth the hassle. The divergence between the queries and the amount of staffing may be small, but the staff member reading the summary, lay it aside: he has not power to raise. He was asked to find a person "50 thousand", as you wrote, and 52 were in the "dropout". Easier to agree with the expert personally: reasonable salary can raise.
Another mistake: some do not indicate the correct title of the position you are applying for. Those who are engaged in search of candidates, especially in recruiting resources, usually enter that word in the search string: for example, a "journalist". If you don't have, and, for example, wrote "reporter", the search results will not work, the specialist will not see it. It is better to specify more than one position, and up to three in one summary. It is important that the names were identical. For example, after a "journalist" you can put "editor", "correspondent". Further to slightly alter the resumes and specify, for example, "press Secretary", "the employee a press-services", "PR-Manager". Two kinds summary increase the chances by half.
Write a letter of motivation
When sending a resume to the employer, write a cover letter. Its purpose is to arouse interest in your questionnaire. Do not write a lot, but do not forget the main thing: 1) introduce yourself; 2) tell me which position you are applying for; 3) emphasize your advantages for this position; 4) indicate what will be useful to the company and why you want to work in it, for example: "I consider this direction the most promising," "I strive for career growth, but here it is most likely", "I always had this site of work"; 5) leave the contact information. Such a letter can be an effective step for an interview and a new job.
