A resume is a document that conveys basic information such as your educational background and employment history. A detailed description of employment history is unnecessary because it is described in the job history booklet, but let's create it with awareness that you are going to convey your own appealing point. Also, among the application documents, it is also the resume that can post the only visual "photo". Since the impression of the photograph strongly influences the document selection, it is necessary to stick to the completion of the photograph.

has been achieved 
□ Is the strength of work something □ Presentation skills exist

Format of curriculum vitae (form)

The form (form) of the curriculum vitae can be roughly divided into "carrier type" and "knitting type".

Ceremonial formula

It is the most common form that shows the job content along the time series. In particular, it is said that it is suitable for "people with little experience in society" and "people who do not have a lot of change or change in career".

Since we can read the annual formula with reference to the resume, there is a feature that it is easy for the recruiter to be informed of the process of carrying the career, basically it is recommended to create a curriculum vitae in this form .

Inverse knitting formula

The inverted bodily formula literally means the inverse of the braiding formula. It will be a way of expressing work experience in time series from the present to the past.

It seems that it is suitable for cases where you want to appeal the latest experience, such as "If the job you are applying is the same as the current work content or if you are close," or "A person in their 30s or older who has long experience in social workers" It is said.

Carrier type

Career formula refers to the form of "summarizing job experience by job function field". In order to make the work content heading instead of employment date etc, it can be said that it is easy to convey such as "what did you do" "what is your specialty field?" For that reason, it is suitable for those who want to appeal to people with a large number of turns and experiences and skills (such as technical or professional jobs).

Is it better to write the curriculum vitae by "PC" or "handwritten"?

Until then, the curriculum vitae / resume was created by handwriting purchased ready-made products, but now it is common to create on a PC. Nevertheless, many people think that handwriting is polite?

As a trend, companies that do not publish job openings on the Internet, historically established long-established companies, family-run local companies, etc., may prefer handwritten application documents. In some cases you are thinking about drawing personality from handwritten letters, and if you apply for such companies, you can say that it is better to create your resume by handwriting.

On the other hand, there is a high possibility that there is no problem even with companies posting job offers at job change sites on the Internet or enterprises accepting applications from the homepage, even for application documents created on PC. In IT companies, etc., when writing application documents by handwriting, it gives the impression that "handwriting is so old, poor efficiency" "I am an IT company wanting to be able to master the tool of personal computer" It may not be possible to pass document screening. For that reason, let's make sure that you decide which is better for each company you apply.

2. How to write a curriculum vitae

How to write a job history that does not fail! Iron rule is "to create from the viewpoint of the reader"!

A job change advisor who has confirmed a lot of application documents, the iron rule which can not be absolutely excluded from the way of writing a job career is "Do not write what you want to write, do not write what you want to tell, Writing what you want to see ".

No matter how great your experience or skill you are, you will not produce any effect if your company does not want it. Think about what kind of experience and skills the company you are applying for is seeking recruitment (talent) by thinking about the qualification field and the job description of job information, and make you feel like you can be active as an immediate fighting force. I will describe my experience / skill in my curriculum vitae.

A word advice advise ①

For example, in the case of recruitment of "experienced corporate sales", the point at which the personnel officer of the company sees the applicant's job history will be able to play an active part in the company's business. Specifically, in the past sales experience,

  1. What kind of products handled (handled products, services)
  2. What kind of customer was in charge (new customer / existing customer, industry type)
  3. What achievement did you give (sales, number of items, in-house awards)

It is the part you want to check. The closer the sales style that we have experienced, such as tangible goods and types of intangible goods, close to the company's own goods, new development, follow-up of existing customers, etc., there is a possibility that the evaluation will be higher. Let's describe it by closing up the close experience and skills of our own by calculating back from the required skill.

Advice advice of change career advisor ②

If you are not inexperienced in recruited occupation, in order to stand on the same start line as a person with practical experience, also extract the past experience factors that can be utilized for recruitment jobs and let 'appeal "basic ability". For example, if you are experienced in the hospitality / sales business of high-priced items such as precious metals, when applying for 'sales of high-priced products for individuals such as home sales', they will appeal with their abilities including the ability to build relationships with high net worth customers It is effective. How you can extract keywords that are hidden among recruiters is key. If you do not think of yourself, you can consult with a third party such as a changeover advisor.

How to write by pattern / situation Q & A

· I am struggling for my second job change and document selection

· I graduated from university in March and I am still finding job hunting. What should I write in my curriculum vitae?

· There is no achievement that can be represented by numbers like sales staff. What should I write?

· When describing achievements on application documents, should I write even with poor performance?

· In case of self-employment, how should it be stated in the resume?

· I want to challenge clerical clerks inexperienced. Please tell me the tips you can accept

Emphasize clarification of job skills! Use "5W1H" to describe!

Another iron rule in creating job history should be described using "5W1H". It is more important than ever to write experiences so far. For those who do not know you at all, when, when, where (Where), who (Who), what (Why), how (How) Let's organize and describe your work experience.

A word advice from a change career advisor
As mentioned earlier, company recruiters have confirmed many application documents. Therefore, do not look through the corner from the corner of the job history, read diagonally from 30 seconds to 40 seconds. I am checking whether it is "a person to be called for an interview" within that short time. That's why, instead of writing the contents of the job for a long time, let's use "5W1H" to make it easy to understand with a sense of speed. Just by changing the way of appeals and how to use words, chances to interview can be born.

Frequently asked questions and measures

· Do you appreciate how many of your curriculum vitae are written?

· How can I summarize the curriculum vitae shortly?

· How many brief curriculum vitae should we put together? Can I add my own PR?

· Although there are multiple work experiences, contents that you want to appeal are similar to each company. How should you appeal?

· Can I describe Word or Excel learned at a school as "available software"?

After finishing writing the curriculum vitae, it is recommended that "check with a third party".

After I finish writing my career history, I will not finish with a mistake / omission check and submit .... We encourage you to set up opportunities for third parties to see once before submitting. If you consult with a job change advisor of a recruitment company, you can receive advice as above and you can also use the correction service that the recruitment site is doing. Let's get frank opinions and impressions from others. It may seem a bit embarrassing to be seen by someone, but it's easy for me to narrow my horizons by myself. It is the process that we want to work on to pass document screening.

⇒ Please tell me how to check sentences

Points to note when writing curriculum vitae | NG curriculum vitae!

In the curriculum vitae which seems to be clearly NG among the job change adviser so far, it seems that there are the following four points. Please check whether your own curriculum vitae does not apply.

There are many misspellings.

Curriculum vitae is the first point of contact between you and the company. If there are many misspellings or disappearances, are there also many mistakes and complicated parts in work? And it will be concerned from the company side. "People neglecting the task of reviewing it as an important document," giving the impression that "I can not see the seriousness despite my changing career with my life" is a big minus. Let's carefully check. 
* In addition to misspellings, let's also check that "Tone that is" or "I am" is in agreement, or that the font (type, size, half-width full-width) matches.

Letters are too crowded, too much sentence.

In the case that it is written carefully with small letters and it is hard to read, or a job history record that exceeds 3 sheets, recruiters are evaluated as "unable to worry about the position of the reader" or "there is no power to summarize concisely" I will.

There are many blanks and contents are faint.

If the content is Skusca's curriculum vitae, it gives the impression that "Do you really feel like getting over us?" I do not want to take the trouble to invite an unwilling person to an interview. Let's appeal properly in proper quantity.

Unknown terms, inappropriate words are heavily used.

In the case of using the technical term of the industry, or writing a word which is not common in usual, when there is no explanation, give the impression "I am not careful". Also, if it is a formal document but a spoken word is entered, or if the word is childish, it gives the impression that it is "a person without common sense".

If you are not a bad job skill, will you always pass through the screening?

⇒ Why is it becoming rejected in document screening?

A cover sheet is a document enclosed when mailing a job history book / resume. It is written with a simple greeting and is also called a superscript · cover letter. Although it is not necessarily attached, it is recommended to attach as much as possible as a manner.
