Top 10 Technical Resume Writing Tips


Need help creating or updating your resume? It certainly can be complicated because your resume is going to be reviewed by software as well as by hiring managers. Review these top resume tips for choosing a resume format, selecting a resume font, customizing your resume, using resume keywords, explaining employment gaps, and more tips for writing interview winning resumes. Trust me it really worked well for me during my placement sessions and in future, and so do it would help you out in achieving success.

Let’s take a look on some of important tips and tricks to write a good enough resume:-

  • List your technical knowledge first, in an organized way. Your technical strengths must stand out clearly at the beginning of your resume. Ultimately, your resume is going to be read by a thoughtful human being, but before it gets to that point it often has to be categorized by an administrative clerk, and make its way past various sorts of key word searches. Therefore, you should list as many directly relevant buzz words as you can which reflect your knowledge and experience. List all operating systems and UNIX flavors you know.
  • List all programming languages and platforms with which you’re experienced. List all software you are skilled with. Make it obvious at a glance where your strengths lie – whether the glance is from a hiring manager, a clerk, or a machine.
  • List your qualifications in order of relevance, from most to least. Only list your degree and educational qualifications first if they are truly relevant to the job for which you are applying. If you’ve already done what you want to do in a new job, by all means, list it first, even if it wasn’t your most recent job. Abandon any strict adherence to a chronological ordering of your experience.
  • Quantify your experience wherever possible. Cite numerical figures, such as monetary budgets/funds saved, time periods/efficiency improved, lines of code written/debugged, numbers of machines administered/fixed, etc. which demonstrate progress or accomplishments due directly to your work.
  • Begin sentences with action verbs. Portray yourself as someone who is active, uses their brain, and gets things done. Stick with the past tense, even for descriptions of currently held positions, to avoid confusion.
  • Don’t sell yourself short. This is by far the biggest mistake of all resumes, technical and otherwise. Your experiences are worthy for review by hiring managers. Treat your resume as an advertisement for you. Be sure to thoroughly “sell” yourself by highlighting all of your strengths. If you’ve got a valuable asset which doesn’t seem to fit into any existing components of your resume, list it anyway as its own resume segment.
  • Be concise. As a rule of thumb, resumes reflecting five years or less experience should fit on one page. More extensive experience can justify usage of a second page. Consider three pages (about 15 years or more experience) an absolute limit. Avoid lengthy descriptions of whole projects of which you were only a part. Consolidate action verbs where one task or responsibility encompasses other tasks and duties. Minimize usage of articles (the, an, a) and never use “I” or other pronouns to identify yourself.
  • Omit needless items. Leave all these things off your resume: social security number, marital status, health, citizenship, age, scholarships, irrelevant awards, irrelevant associations and memberships, irrelevant publications, irrelevant recreational activities, a second mailing address (“permanent address” is confusing and never used), references, reference of references (“available upon request”), travel history, previous pay rates, previous supervisor names, and components of your name which you really never use (i.e. middle names).
  • Have a trusted friend review your resume. Be sure to pick someone who is attentive to details, can effectively critique your writing, and will give an honest and objective opinion. Seriously consider their advice. Get a third and fourth opinion if you can.
  • Proofread, proofread, proofread. Be sure to catch all spelling errors, grammatical weaknesses, unusual punctuation, and inconsistent capitalizations. Proofread it numerous times over at least two days to allow a fresh eye to catch any hidden mistakes.
  • Laser print it on plain, white paper. Handwriting, typing, dot matrix printing, and even ink jet printing look pretty cheesy. Stick with laser prints. Don’t waste your money on special bond paper, matching envelopes, or any color deviances away from plain white. Your resume will be photocopied, faxed, and scanned numerous times, defeating any special paper efforts, assuming your original resume doesn’t first end up in the circular file.

NGO promotes CHARITY or BUSINESS ?


Well guys !! I’ve come to another topic and would like to throw some light regarding on this issue as well. Hope you’ll like this one and try to share your views and further discuss here as well.

So, NGO is basically called “Non-Governmental Organisation”, a Non-Profit body which helps Poor Underprivileged People and probably they would ask for Donation and Charity, from y’all in order to complete their goals. Many NGOs around the Globe are highly active to provide such services during Emergency and Non-Emergency situations.

Well, Money is an issue, since anyone can’t help everyone. And, I guess we all are kind and concerned enough to donate something for Humanity. Hopefully!! 😛

When we see some poor people in need, we all probably go for such NGOs sometimes, where we donate either money or materials, all of them are useful to fulfill the needs of those people who are desperately in need. Even many Famous personalities (whether a politician, an industrialist, a sportsperson or an entertainer) across the Globe, are more willing and capable enough do so by donating huge amount to any particular Charity or Trust, just to save their Taxes. It might be a Current Trend or even a Social Hype among the people (especially Teens and Youths). But still, it promotes Humanity. Atleast, through our humble efforts, someone would get a reason to live.

The number of internationally operating NGOs is estimated at 40,000. National numbers are even higher: Russia has 277,000 NGOs. and India is estimated to have around 3.3 million NGOs. That means NGOs are enough available Worldwide to help the people in need.

But what we’re witnessing these days that many NGOs are not functioning in right way. As a mater of fact, through their aims and works, they’ve changed its whole definition.

Since a lot of money is being donated year by year by many Benevolent Persons, it has also become a source of Earning Money. They are seeking their own Profit to fill their own comforts and luxuries. They’ve ultimately made it as “Business”, from where they could earn more and more money from us in the names of Charity. Eventually we are helping to fulfill their own needs. It’s now hard to find and then trust to a Benevolent NGO these days. Because, you can’t really trust on them as you’re even not sure whether they are helping the needy people or not.

I really found these aims of such so-called NGOs very lame and cheap. Sometimes, It even makes me hopeless and sick to feel that how they make themselves feel good by looting money from us like that, achieving their own desires and even not helping those who are fully dependent on us. Well, this is 21st century my friends, where Vandalism and Corruption is at the peak. Whether it’s on High or Low Level, these two shits would happen here for sure and f*ck the whole generation.

I’m really so much pissed from such so-called NGOs coming and asking for Charity these days. They brag so much about their achievements in helping the Underprivileged People, but hardly have done a shit for them. Well, I know such couple of NGOs that do so. But I won’t be revealing the names and further discussing here to create controversy. Honestly speaking, I don’t even spend my single penny as donation to such corrupt phonies. Because I won’t be DAMN sure whether they would help those needy people or take away with them and squander my and other benevolent fellows’ money like Brats. Rather I prefer more to donate something like- Old Books, Clothes, Shoes etc. to those poor people by myself. Atleast I would be getting an assurance that my donation has been gone to the Right Person. Moreover, it gives me more happiness and satisfaction to see them.

So therefore, I’ve some Important Points to Ponder :

—>  Go for that Trust to whom you could Trust.

—> However, if you genuinely want to help those needy persons with complete satisfaction, but you don’t even trust any such NGOs who might fulfill your desires. Then it’s far better to donate to them by your own.

We all even could help them by giving proper education and Lifestyle. Here, not only you would be getting a cent percent assurance and reliability, but also a satisfaction and a pursuit of happiness by helping the Right People in Right Time.

!! Serve for Humanity !!
