Components of Perfect Resume Examples

February 15, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 162

It's really fantastic how the Internet works. No wonder it has become a major source of basically almost everything: information, opinion, entertainment, communication, and a lot more things. With its usefulness, the World Wide Web should carry a tagline that says, "Name them, the Internet has all of them." Considered as one of the most significant "inventions" of all time, the Internet has proven its capacity in providing various things to people from all walks of life, as well as to businesses and organizations of any type and size. That is the amazing contribution of the Web to human history.

Writing is one important process that best represents the online world. The Web is nothing without its contents: texts, taglines, captions, and many other things. When we are talking about online writing, we mostly remember blogs, articles, statistics, e-books, and other written materials that are commonly used as references and guides in doing certain activities. In particular, resume writing is one of the most searched topics on the Internet. Several companies of this type proliferate online. As one of their marketing strategies, they offer free samples or "perfect resume examples."

In online searching, people usually type relevant keywords such as resume writing tips and professional writers. "Resume examples" is a keyword that is frequently typed in search engines. This is maybe because people or job applicants in particular need to look for different patterns and templates. Apparently, searching for perfect resume examples is another thing.

The initial question is, "Is there such a perfect example?"

Well, here is the answer: An application document can only be perfect if it has the following:

Striking Layout. One characteristic of a perfectly written copy is its nice appearance that really captures the attention of a hiring manager. Hiring managers initially look at how a pre-employment document is presented. Their willingness to read the document is based on how convinced they are by the application's physical appearance. A remarkable layout should not be colorful or one that is full of images and other insertions. It is rather characterized by simple and proper application and distribution of minimal visual enhancers. Simply put, it's all about professional-looking document.

Error-Free Content. When a hiring manager is attracted with the appearance, he is prompted to read from the header down to the succeeding details of the copy. It is important that applicants do not submit applications with even just a slight error. Once committed, the hiring manager will have a negative impression about the applicant being careless and unprofessional. Here are what you should avoid: grammatical errors, misspellings, omission of some important words or phrases, and improper use of punctuation marks.

Important Factors. Job hopefuls should always remember that hiring managers are very particular with the content of the application; therefore, it is a must for them to present an application that:

- has organized thoughts

- contains relevant sections

- is honest and consistent

- includes realistic data

- is concise but informative

- highlights qualifications and skills

- tells all about the applicant without narrating every detail of his life

The above factors and characteristics make an application tool perfect. Now, the next question is, "Are there really perfect resume examples found on the Internet since most of them have fictitious information (for personal details) and are not personalized?" The answer can be a 'no' and a 'yes.'

No, there's none. There is no perfect example on the Internet because not all pieces of information listed or included in the samples are applicable to all. How can they be perfect when they can't be readily used?

Yes, there are. Although people are different from one another and what the samples provide is another story of diversity, it's up to the people if they will be using them as their patterns or templates. If they find them useful, then, it can be said that these materials are, indeed, perfect resume examples. It's just a matter of appreciating what the generous Internet offers to the netizens.
