Highlight Your Achievement

This is best way to make your resume sell you. I'm sure you must have achieved many a things in your career. If your answer is yes, do mention all of them in your resume. Every employer wants to hire people with a good past experience, no body wants to hire losers. Highlighting achievements in your resume makes you stand out of the crowd & fetch the attention of HR towards you.

Mention What You're Doing Currently & Not What Your Job Responsibilities Says

I've seen many people mention their job responsibilities in resume rather what in actual they're doing. You might have doing much more than what your job responsibilities says. Highlight each and every thing which you're doing even if that is not your role. It gives a more clear picture to your employer about your capabilities.

Highlight Your Hobbies If It Worth Mention

Sometimes your hobbies gives your resume an extra boost, specially when it relates to the job profile or company interest. What if you're going to apply for a marketing job with a car manufacturing company & your hobby is writing a blog on latest car reviews.

Tailor You Resume For Every Job

As we've mentioned earlier, your resume is the first point of contact that you made with your employer. Tailoring your resume for each profile is always advisable. Remove all of the point from your resume which are irrelevant to the post you're going to apply and highlight those point which are best fit with the profile. Doing so will make your resume a better competitor in the selection process.

Be Careful While Writing About Education

We recommend you to mention only your education vitals in your resume. Don't mention your GPA or Percentage unless & until its really required or worth mentioning. You can also mention your extra curricular activities you did during your education if they are relevant to the job. Just remember that employers will be much more impressed with relevant real world experience over your College experience if you have to choose.
