Executive Resume

When applying for a new executive job, an excellently written resume is one of the most important tools as the resume will act as a representative to all potential employers who want to primarily want to learn about your personality and abilities. The primary focus should be on two main things. First, the layout should be neat and orderly. Second, the language should be clear, lucid and simple. It should reflect clearly the credentials of the individual applying for the job, along with any form of previous experience possessed by the individual that is relevant to the organization offering the job that he or she is applying for. Along with a brief, yet detailed snapshot of the credentials possessed by the applicant, the resume should also contain information regarding previous education. Certificate courses are an added booster to the profile. Job experience mentioned by the applicant must be relevant and noteworthy. All experience in specific areas of expertise must be highlighted, for example, Product Management, New Product Development, Sales Management etc. Achievements and awards earned during the course of one's educational or professional career are an integral part of any resume to add strength and show one's mettle. Besides these, any extra-curricular activities that display qualities associated with better performance must be mentioned. While mentioning any information, be it educational or professional, care should be taken to ensure the accuracy of the information as well as having the requisite documentation to back it up. Candidates should refrain from writing anything in their resume that is not relevant or untrue. A reference from senior personnel and eminent personalities also adds value to a resume. Any other information that highlights qualities while maintaining a professional demeanour should be mentioned. The use of action words is important.
