Strike it with Just ONE PAGE!

I remember I took a business advanced writing class back then in my university. My tutor during that time was Asian American. He’s been working with Chicago Newspaper and been writing a lot of business and professional papers.

First thing that he mentioned to me was the importance of having a great resume writing.I repeat, a great resume writing.

Let’s apply some of the concept here because I believe it’s the same everywhere.

Resume length: I was trained to have just ONE PAGE long resume. Yes its a one page.

Why?

1) Because as a recruiter, how long do you think they will read thru your 3 pages resume? How sure are you they will go thru line by line whatever you have written on that piece of paper.

Put yourself in their shoes. You have thousands of applicants resume to review. With different format and style. Having a shorter page meaning they could spend more time reviewing more areas on your resume as everything is written in just one page.

2) You might have written on your resume something you’re good at or skills:”Organized, concise and know how to prioritize works”. My friend, believe me, if you have that written on your resume, yet you are unable to have a “ONE PAGE” resume, it would definitely contradict with what you have mentioned.
Being organized and concise would mean that ability to cut it short and pick up the most/crucial points in your resume and choose a very strong and good words.
Well said. Indirectly, one page resume definitely proves your summary skills, organized, and conciseness.

3) The less you write, the less errors you would face. Think it easy. You don’t want to submit your resume that has numbers of grammatical errors, spelling errors or any other language errors. Minimize the cost of being judged by your own writing.

If you asked me, I would prefer to read out and scan a sweet, short, yet concise resume than 3 pages resume.

If you think this is helpful in your resume writing, feel free to share this with your peers.

How much is your price?

Hi,

it comes to my attention recently that numbers of graduates from universities are still being unemployed. It’s not that they don’t have a good result. It’s not because they can’t compete with the rest. It’s not because of lack of technical skills.

The main root for this situation is the not readiness the graduates to get into the working world. According to the Hiring and recruitment agency (I have watched one on TV), the freshies seem to be unprepared, unable to communicate well during the interviews, In fact it is reported that some don’t even perfectly deliver when the interviewer asks “tell me about yourself”.

Realizing this issue and integrating with how much I want to help this group segment, I created this piece of writing hoping that it could serve as a guide for every body.

With a good “price tag” you put on yourself, it could make “employers” buy you for certain values you have in you

interview, job, communication

Communication and skills set are the key to price yourself higher
