  • Step into the shoes of the recruiter and construct your resume in a way that it contains phrases that the hiring manager can use while searching or fitting your CV with the job role
  • Keywords should be wisely chosen because automated systems perform the task on the basis of the keywords that have been fed into the computer system
    • If an aspiring software professional is applying for a job that says “deep knowledge of database-Foxpro” in the job description, the phrases “database-Foxpro” and its common acronym “DB-Foxpro” is required to be mentioned in the CV quite a number of times so that it gets some priority
    • Break the requirement mentioned in the job description into several parts
      • For example, if a job description stresses “a high proficiency in C++ programming”, then the CV can reflect this into several parts, such as, have done specialization in C++, have done college level semester projects on Automating Library management in C++. This may not win you any brownie points but can surely keep you ahead of all the routine, regular CVs
      • Do not apply multiple times to the same company for the same job role
      • Frame trending keywords subjectively to bring in more limelight
      • Make a clear concise CV
      • Tweaking with summary and skills area a little can be of some help

Lastly, if you feel that you as a fresh graduate are lacking that “required expertise” to frame a correct CV; then there are some of the premium resume writing services offered by known Indian online classified companies. Avail the service at cheap prices and get your CV ready for the final battle, which is Job Search.
