Based on the summary, the first and rather stable opinion about the person is formed, which, however, is subjective and depends on the stereotypes of people’s perception. If an invitation for an interview could not be obtained, it means that for some reason the resume did not attract the attention of the employer. The only chance to succeed with a resume is the moment when it is read for the first time. According to the majority of employers, it is very important that the information in the resume is as complete and at the same time brief as possible, and most importantly, that the applicant can confirm all the data during the interview.
The first unshakable rule is that the summary volume cannot exceed one, maximum two A4 pages, and it is desirable that the key information be on the first page. If the volume does not allow this, then think about what information you can donate. However, if a person has a lot of experience, this creates certain difficulties and limitations, but when typing resumes on a computer, it is possible to bypass this rule: change the font size, although this is not desirable the resume should be easy to read. If the resume takes more than one page, at the end of the pages it is indicated that the continuation is on the next sheet. On all sheets except the first one, the sheet number is printed and the last name is indicated. If the volume of the summary turned out to be one incomplete page, the information must be arranged so that the page is fully occupied with text. To write a “correct” resume, you must use one font, preferably Times New Roman or Arial. Many fonts of different sizes are unreadable! Strict design style an indispensable condition. A resume is a document.
Standard for resume is considered to be a font of the 12th size. It is necessary that the entire content be the same size. Each section of the summary should be separated from the previous one. Headings are better bold and or underlined. Be sure to check the spelling (F7 button in the Word editor). A resume with errors has no chance. The summary should be written in simple language. For this type of document, the following page layout is recommended: top margin 2 cm, right 2 cm, bottom 2 cm, left 2.5 cm. The field is restricted to a centimeter and instead of the standard 12th font size, use the 10th. At the same time, the option of reducing the font is acceptable only if the resume will be sent to the employer by E-mail or handed in person. In the case of sending a resume by fax, the font size less than 12 is better not to use, otherwise it will be impossible to read the resume. For the abstract paper is used in white, good quality.
