- As a title of the resume, no need to write 'Resume or Curriculum Vitae', just put your name in Bold, Font size Arial/Times New Roman 14 or 16.
- Then give a single line space, and put your contact details or affiliation.
- There is no need to use your photograph.
- Personal details section (usually not included, but if you wish to add, place at the end of the resume) may contain only DOB, Sex and Nationality.
- It is not mandatory to start the resume with objective. Usage of ‘objective’ seems obsolete already. But you can put a Career Profile section where you briefly mention your past and present career or important accomplishments. If you are a fresher, just mention what do you wish to achieve.
- It is good to start resume with your present status, if you are working somewhere or studying for some other degree. Otherwise, begin resume with your academic credentials.
- Academic information may be given in tabular form (without table borders) and give % or CGPA, year of passing, University, etc.
- Technical or application expertise may be given as a list, but provide necessary proof that you are really expert in the techniques you mentioned. For e.g., HPLC – mention like “well versed with HPLC technique during my M.Sc. project where I have analyzed analysis plant active principles”.
- Projects undertaken may be given in detail along with project duration, where the same has been carried out, major findings, etc
- Give adequate page margins (Eg. 2.5 cm or 1 inch) and use Letter or A4 paper size
- Give adequate space between sections (Eg. 1 line space)
- Adjust resumes to 2-3 pages
