First of all, remember that those who hire you are also people with their own interests. After reading your hobbies, the employer will be able to find points of contact or just be interested in your personality. The main rule here is to specify in the first order hobbies related to your field of activity. For example, a designer may indicate that in his free time he paints in oils, while a teacher of literature writes poems. According to statistics, most employers would prefer to see foreign languages and sports in the list of hobbies. But it’s not worth describing a half-page hobby this is frivolous and gives the impression of lack of professionalism as if there is no place left for work. Personnel recruiters work, usually with a rather large amount of incoming resumes.
Therefore, they often do not even consider candidates whose questionnaires raise too many questions, require clarifying information, or contain non-core job information. To make your resume read and not sent to the basket after that, follow these guidelines: The main rule to keep in mind is compliance of the vacancy resume for which you are applying. It often happens that we, having chosen a large company for ourselves, send resumes there to positions that are more or less close to our profile. We are seduced by the fame of the company, its status. We believe that the more times we send a resume, the sooner we get a job. We will not settle down, as this is the wrong approach. Specialists in recruitment advise: if the percentage of matches with the requirements for the vacancy is high send a resume. If not, be sure to write a cover letter in which you need to justify why you are the right candidate.
Take the time to tailor your resume to job requirements: if necessary, reformulate or add skills. Review the jobs you are applying for and notice the first five requirements. After that, add to the resume those skills that you have in a format close to the employer. Pay particular attention to the resume on literacy, punctuation and style. The employer will definitely notice the mistakes, and will never invite a candidate to interview them. The logic is simple: if the applicant makes mistakes at the job search stage, then he will be negligent and inattentive while performing his job duties. In your cover letter, try to avoid cliché phrases like “promising and interesting work”, “stable earnings”, “large developing company”. Letters “about everything and about nothing”, too, most likely will not help you find a job.
