About Résumé’s and TimesJobs Resume Services

What are TimesJobs Resume Services?

TimesJobs Resume Services is a feature on TimesJobs that aids an individual in the writing and developing of a professional resume (as well as other services pertaining to the creation of a well-rounded, expert resume). There is also the option of sending it to targeted consultants in specified areas or regions.

Why are TimesJobs Resume Services helpful?

TimesJobs Resume Services are especially helpful when you are trying to construct a winning resume that will get you the kind of job you need and want.

But you may be thinking why you need a resume first of all? People use résumé’s as a marketing tool, or as a way of highlighting their talent, strengths and skills that they intend (and can) bring to the job.

What does a resume need?

A resume should have such things as your biodata (your personal information like your date of birth, your full legal name, etc.), your academic qualifications and your work experience (if any, else just clarify in your resume that you wish to begin work as a fresher). You also add in your resume any other qualification or extra curricular activities you may have participated in (such as competitions you may have won). And last but not least, write a short paragraph (not more than a few lines) on what your future goals and aspirations are.

So why did I need help again?

And now you might ask, well, if making a resume was so simple, and entailed so little, then why can’t I just put one together myself? What’s all this hype about professional TimesJobs resume services?

You may find that you’ll need some help when it comes to creating and boiling down your ‘Fat List’ which is the basis of every resume.

Now what’s a Fat List?

A Fat List is the beginning step to creating a resume. It is a giant list of everything you’ve done and/ or accomplished throughout each year of your life – or as far back as is relevant to your job hunt. Fat Lists can be several pages long, hence its name – Fat List.

A Fat List will look something like this:

1998:

Completed 12th Grade

Was school captain

Won art competition

Did 240 hours of social work

Worked part-time teaching guitar classes

1999:

Enrolled for BA

Took up a Diploma Course in Music

Worked part-time at Dad’s factory

And on your list would go year by year as far back as is related to your job hunting.

But making this list is fairly easy. The hard part will come in when you end up with a giant list spanning several pages, and then need to trim it down to fit on just one page in a clear, concise, marketing-language way!

As a resume is THE tool you will be using to ‘sell yourself’ so to speak, it needs to be perfect. A consultant or potential employer will not spend more than a few seconds on your CV unless something there catches his eye or interests him.

Having your resume done by a professional ensures that you will get the maximum results out of your efforts with a job that is well-rewarding.

    Some few steps make success in interviews, always give important to CVs because one employer/Recruiter can judge your ability from the resume. Now you can search the jobs from the job post listing page and apply there directly. Naukriforwomen.com has three different sections with multiple fields. Most of the naming companies are already an employer of naukriforwomen.com. We can hope that you will not receive any fake job alert from them. So submit your update CV and get the job alert from the employers and recruiters time to time. http://naukriforwomen.com is the Indian first job portal site for women…………Only women can apply as a job seeker in this portal

    hi
    A few months ago I wrote about taking on a stretch assignment with the HR systems team. I’m really enjoying the role and my fun, crazy team and thought I’d give you a taste of what I’ve been up to by writing about our recent morale event.
